Anyone who has booked a romantic spa getaway will know it comes with a hefty price, which is why we were over the moon to discover that five-star hotel Rixos The Palm was offering an incredible affordable promotion ideal for pampering a loved one.

What: Sweet Escape

Where: Rixos The Palm

The low down: The 60-minute massage takes place in the grandiose couple’s suite complete with a mini gazebo, bathroom and Jacuzzi. Following a warm foot cleanse the treatment begins.

Using a mixture of classical and Thai techniques medium pressure is applied to your body as the therapist works her way down your shoulders to your back and legs. The motion is rhythmic and systematic with the emphasis more on creating a relaxing sensation rather than ridding of knots. This allows your body to completely unwind especially when the massage ends with a therapeutic head massage – our favourite.

As part of the generous package, the post-spa treatment includes a buffet lunch at La Turca restaurant and full pool and beach access for the day. The beach is one of the most serene stretches on the Palm.

The results: A truly salubrious experience that leaves you feeling rejuvenated for the week ahead. It’s a great experience to enjoy with a loved one.
