BODY & MIND | Maximise Your Me-Time At Shiqi Spa

How often do you get to completely switch off and unwind for 90 minutes straight? Probably not nearly often enough – which is why you need to book yourself  in for the indulgent Fall in Love With Yourself package at ShuiQi at Atlantis The Palm.

If you’re not a fan of a facial where the therapist merely layers on some cream and sends you on your merry way, this 90-minute treatment will tick all your boxes, while also restoring a sense of wellbeing and balance. The opulent ShuiQi Spa is a peaceful pocket of calm on The Palm, all airy atriums and soft lighting. The buss of the city is immediately forgotten as you sip on your welcome drink, pondering the relaxing delights to come. First on the menu is an invigorating back scrub, which, it turns out, is exactly how all facial treatments should start. You feel super clean and soft, ready to sink into a deep muscle massage. This is not the sports massage of your nightmares, though – while the pressure is kept firm and even as per your request, your muscles slowly melt into the table as feel – good hormones flood your body and any lingering tension slips away.

After not nearly enough time (when is a massage ever long enough!), it’s time to treat your face to some TLC. Of course, only the best is good enough for your skin, which is why ShuiQi uses ESPA and Shiseido products. The radiance facial does exactly that: give you radiant, plump skin. Cleansing and a gentle scrub is followed by a deeply de-stressing face and head massage – plus! The ear massage you never knew you needed. Targeted serum and moisturizer seals the dewy deal.
