f your complexion is still suffering from a little too much partying and indulgence over the festive season, a decent facial is a good way to get your skin back on track. ESPA at Yas Viceroy is offering a fabulous new Energising Spa Package that includes a 90 minute treatment of your choice, access to the pool and spa facilities and lunch in Origins restaurant. In the name of research we thought it was best we try it out. ESPA is located at Yas Viceroy overlooking the Yas Marina Formula 1 Circuit. The space is super modern and cool with an incredible LED canopy that emits colour and shade. The spa follows the contemporary fusion of elegance and momentum with sensuous curves, sleek lines and a blend of bronze glass, copper lattice screens, walnut wood and marble. The spa comprises nine treatment rooms, The Viceroy Presidential Treatment Suite has its own personal Hammam, steam room and rain shower with colour therapy. A fusion of Western therapies and Eastern philosophies have resulted in a unique offering of treatments designed by ESPA. We are welcomed with a delicious ginger tea that we enjoyed while we completed our pre-treatment questionnaire in the reception lounge. We’ve chosen a facial for our treatment so we outline our concerns and what we hope to achieve. We are then escorted through to the spa where everything is designed to create the perfect atmosphere for relaxation. Dark wood and soft colours, dimmed, ambient lighting and even all the right sound effects, courtesy of a water feature, create the illusion of being tucked away in a serene space. We are shown to our treatment room and while we are having a foot soak our therapist shows us the different oils she’ll be using today including a massage oil and a serum for our face. She does a scent test to see which ones we respond best to. We are trying the age defying facial to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. This advanced facial features a deep brush cleanse to purify and prep skin, before a concentrated enzyme peel naturally polishes away complexion-dulling cells, radically refining skin’s texture. We are shown our skin under a special light that shows that our skin is dehydrated with mild oiliness around our t-zone. Our therapist then aims to helps these concerns. To deeply hydrate, boost cell regeneration and firm facial contours, our skin is supercharged with a lifting and smoothing mask and Rose Quartz Crystal massage. A serum is then applied and an intense massage is performed to lift our skin. An eye serum is also applied as our eye area was especially dehydrated. We leave with a refined and firmed complexion, our facial contours are better defined and skin is supple, soft and radiates a renewed glow. This package includes pool access, access to spa facilities and lunch in Origins for AED625* Espa, Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi 02 656 0862
