With positive energy and eventually to rediscover yourself as well as your lifestyle, The Retreat Palm Dubai MGallery by Sofitel - the region’s first family-friendly wellness resort - offers a wellness retreat and service that is designed to suit your wellness goals and lifestyle, combining a thoughtful comfort as well as contemporary design tucked away in a sanctuary on the east crescent of the Palm Jumeirah Dubai.
You may also have to get used to the intended closed curtain service even during the day to block the high summer heat from outside the long balcony that is overlooking the swimming pool as well as the Palm Jumeirah sea view with the distant Dubai skyline.
Premium one bedroom suite
There is a beachfront infinity pool from where you can just chill and look at the views of the Palm and beyond, although when the hotel is very busy, the pool is not large enough to accommodate the deluge of guests. There is also a roped off area for swimming in the sea water, but the water in Dubai is not our favourite thing when it comes to enjoying a swim.
As the temperature was over 40 degrees, the climate controlled pool water was just the tonic for cooling down! Incidentally, adjacent to the pool is a foot reflexology stone path, walking on bare feet on the uneven sharp stones may seem quite tense at first but its helps to stimulate your blood flow circulation – no pain, no gain, as they say and quite equivalent to a good cardio warm up, we highly recommend that you give it a try on this ancient method of natural healing.
Aniban then adjourned us to the Wellness Lounge for a InBody analysis with complete assessment with body composition balance, muscle-fat, water composition, segmental lean/fat, BMI analysis and even estimating the ration of waist and hip, diagnosis of obesity and internal age test to increase longevity. I was happy to score 83/100 that reflects the evaluation of my body composition with a normal BMI, a balance on upper and lower body balance evaluation that really made my day.
