Fairmont the Palm, Dubai, Gets Willow Stream Spa

Dubai is “fabulous for divorce parties and girlfriend getaways,” says The Trip Trotter’s Laura Hanaford.


Heads up, spa fans! The Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont The Palm, Dubai has arrived at the Palm Jumeirah.   

What makes it cool? We hear that natural elements of Dubai are reflected in the spa’s color palette, including attributes such as sand and the sea, and in the spa experiences, which use local products and spa traditions. The 17,200-square-foot spa has 13 treatment rooms, including separate massage, facial and treatment rooms, and a duet suite for a traditional Arabian rasul experience, which is a cleansing ritual that uses mineral-rich mud, heat and steam. Good for couples or girlfriend getaways: The spa also has a grand suite with two single suites connected by a large lounge.
