Forget the single stemmed roses and the strawberry fondant chocolates. If you really want to feel special this Valentine’s Day, then we insist on a Power of the Sea treatment at Talise Spa.

What: An organic treatment using Sodashi products, this thoroughly restorative treatment will pamper you to within an inch of your life.

Where: Talise Spa, Al Qasr Hotel, Madinat Jumeirah

The low down: With its detoxifying sea plants and marine minerals, not only will this ritual leave you feeling relaxed and invigorated with silky smooth skin, it will also help you to slip into that slinky little number for your much-anticipated date night a whole lot easier.

Starting with an invigorating scrub using organic green tea salt therapy exfoliant, every nook and cranny of your body will benefit from this robust rub. After a warm shower you’ll climb back onto your heated bed to be wrapped inside a green clay and seaweed mask. A fortifying head massage follows and then it’s time for a mini facial that instantly boosts your skin. Finally – yes there’s more! – a rich, wonderfully moisturising body lotion is painstakingly massaged into your skin.

The results: Aside from the Power of the Sea treatment being two of the most indulgent hours you’ll ever enjoy, you’ll be blown away by the softness and, dare we say, firmness of your skin. A treat for both you and your loved one…

The Details: The 120-minute treatment costs Dhs750. For the month of February, Talise Spa will have a special romantic Couple Experience Package (includes foot bath, royal couple’s massage, an exculsive AlphaSphere Deluxe by Sha, beach access and lunch at Talise Spa, priced at Dhs1,995 per couple),  and 20 per cent off on a single treatment when two people book the same treatment together.
