The relaxation

Make sure you head to Six Senses Spa, where your treatment starts with a wellness screening to identify the programme that suits you best before heading to one of the nine treatment rooms. The Alchemy Bar offers ingredients inspired by the local Omani environment, customs and traditions chosen to revitalize and nourish the body and soul, and you can experiment by creating your own exfoliator from the displayed ingredients and favourite aromas.
