C&G Experiences: LivNordic Spa in Cayan Dubai Marina
It was thanks to The Entertainer that I first came across this spa in their Beauty & Fitness section. If you are like me and never heard of LivNordic before, Its a new Nordic-themed spa located on the 6th floor of the Cayan Tower in Dubai Marina. (The nice twisty one).
At first impression, The spa deco is quite simple, neat and minimalist, and oozes Nordic vibes (I know cuz I lived in Sweden for a year). Light grey and beige palettes everywhere makes it a very soothing place, even if it was not on the super high-end of spas.
Having just come back from a hiking trip in Oman, I decided to try two of their signature treatments: A Full Body Swedish Massage (For my sore muscles) and The Classic Organic facial (To restore the glow for my face after the sun damage).
Good news is, with the Entertainer coupons I got to take the hubby and he had the same treatments, as they also have a Males section - Double win!
My therapist took me from the relaxation lounge (Above) after I was changed into their comfortable and fluffy spa attire, and guided me to their treatment room. She explained that she will start off with the full body Swedish massage after agreeing that I will go for a "Medium" pressure.
I loved how professional, polite and very knowledgeable their therapist was. The massage itself was one of the best I've tried in Dubai so far - and I tried loads. It had the right balance between pressure and focusing on the sore muscles and pointed to, but also relaxation and finishing off feeling rejuvenated. (I even dozed off a little bit..).
After we were done with the massage, she moved to my facial explaining each and every step and ingredients in each (Something that I miss sometimes in other spas). That facial was the highlight of my week. I loved the fact that it was 100% organic, using mostly "The Organic Pharmacy" products. The smells of products have been so natural and refreshing (Rose Petals & Vanilla, anyone?) and such a comforting change compared to the clinical/chemical smells you get in other salons.
I actually fell in love with the gentle rose-petals and milk scrub and I wanted to take a bottle home but unfortunately it was sold out. (proof that it really is a great product range).
I live only a few towers away and so coming here again for another facial sometime soon is a no-brainer. I loved how easy it was and how professional their team is. I also felt my face looked and felt incredible afterwards, especially coming back from a short break with a burnt visage!
On the other hand, You might find it a tiny bit on the expensive end, Compared to other high-end spas, but then again, that Entertainer Voucher will make it oh-so-worth-it! #Enjoy
