Take a road trip to revitalising yourself at this gorgeous oasis in the UAE.
There are zero things wrong with ending your week with a trip to the beach, or a rocking Saturday brunch with the girls. But aren't weekend escapes so much better if it actually lifts your spirits and gives you some well-deserved pampering?
With all the summer heat, traffic jams, and the everyday hustle and bustle, peace can be hard to come by in our busy expat lives.
That's why we found ourselves at Zoya Health and Wellness Resort, a health-oriented getaway and the first of its kind in the UAE.
As soon as you approach this stunning Ajman resort, you instantly feel a sense of calm. The complex is set with the backdrop of a new modern golf course and the historic Mangroves, home to over 50 types of bird species.
We were booked into the Wellness Package that is anything but cookie-cutter, comprised of introductory one-on-one consultations that were then matched to our needs to offer us the perfect treatments.
The Body Composition analysis was a high-tech look at the breakdown of all aspects of the body inclusive of fat/muscle/water/salt content which focuses on areas to work on to improve wellbeing as a whole.
The next consultation was integrated medicine which was an informative look at your individual health needs. Both Doctors we consulted with were highly knowledgeable, offering excellent personalised advice to improve our lifestyles.
Our treatments were structured around our consultation to assist and improve our wellbeing. The physio water bed relaxation was a soothing and mind enhancing therapy that completely de-stressed me.
Following this we had a Swedish massage which was incredibly enjoyable which worked the muscles and soft tissues providing calm and balance.
We finished our stay with a traditional Turkish Hammam which eased all muscle tension and allowed deep relaxation. Since having it, I have really noticed an improvement in my skin being brighter and softer.
The whole experience at Zoya Health and Wellness Resort was wonderful - a truly magnificent way to let go of stress and enhance one's health. We arrived with the pressures of the week on our shoulders and left the resort fully refreshed, revitalised, and ready to take on the world again.
