ARAB MOTIFS INSPIRE UAE’S FIRST SPA VILLAS IN ABU DHABI
Eight private villas have been built at Jumeirah Saadiyat Island Resort in Abu Dhabi, with Arab motifs like mashrabiyas adorning them.
The two-story units are the only purpose-built spa villas in the UAE and have been designed to “take discreet pampering to the next level”, according to the hotel operator.
Eight are private villas, while five have been designed to accommodate spa features to provide a step-up in privacy-focused relaxation.
Each villa boasts a rose gold elevator that takes guests upstairs to a deep and luxurious circular ceramic bathtub, complete with antique gold faucets.
Arab motifs are etched onto the double-wide doors. Black and white photographs of UAE life hang on the walls of each villa, whith colourful desert photography also part of the aesthetic mix.
There are also embroidered canopies. And, like in most modern hotels, temperature and lighting can be controlled from the bedside.
