SENSASIA Stories is a completely unprecedented flagship destination spa, committed to total body wellness.

Have you been feeling like you are in desperate need of some TLC? No matter what your daily routine may be, a special day at the spa can really help in making you feel refreshed and energized. We were one of the first lucky ones to be invited to review a brand new concept that has been launched by one of our favorite spas in Dubai, Sensasia Urban Spa.

Located at Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates, SENSASIA Stories is a completely unprecedented flagship destination spa, committed to total body wellness. This brand new space is beyond impressive-once you walk in you will immediately feel at ease and definitely go into a more zen-like mode.

The 4,000 sq/ft spa is a monastic, deeply tranquil space, intensively curated to take clients on a truly unique journey through the senses of Asia: carving their own SENSASIA Story. Combining authentic Asian architecture; exclusively natural materials; a muted colour palette and textured tone-on-tone.

Developed around a central courtyard, punctuated by contemporary interpretations of traditional Asian arch structures, SENSASIA Stories comprises six unisex treatment rooms, one couples’ suite offering total privacy, separate male and female changing rooms and therapeutic relaxation areas, complete with heated beds.
Bespoke facilities include experience showers, an ice fountain, herb saunas, steam rooms, a Jacuzzi and virtual reality headsets, which can be incorporated into treatments to offer complete, customized escapism and guided meditations, transporting clients to the world’s most beautiful destinations – from the idyllic beaches of the Seychelles or the sweeping mountains of New Zealand.

The creative process continues into SENSASIA Stories treatments. As well as offering the award- winning massages, facials and body treatments that long-standing SENSASIA clients have been flocking to the 16-year-old spa chain’s locations to enjoy time after time – such as the targeted, deep tissue ‘Knead-IT’ and The Ultimate Recovery massages; Warm Milk & Honey body wrap and The Essential Spa Ritual, combining a prescribed, personalized facial with a full body massage – SENSASIA Stories guests can also carve out their spa own experience from the very beginning, with the option to book time as opposed to treatments, and allowing the expert team of therapists to script a tailored, transformative journey, just for them.

We opted for the Natura Bisse Diamond Life Infusion Facial as our skin has been congested and stressed out. This treatment not only left our skin glowing but also helped get rid of the active spots in the next few days. The treatment included a facial massage, mask and exfoliation.

Once the facial ended we felt completely relaxed and walked over to the quiet section where the therapist brought us some ginger tea, water and a few vegetables to munch on. We ended up staying in that area a lot longer than planned-but that was because the entire experience was so blissful that we really didn’t feel like heading back to reality.

Sensasia Stories is located at Kempinski Mall of the Emirates.
