Roving reporter Sarah Morris recently visited the Warwick Doha hotel spa for some much-needed R&R. Here’s what happened…
The Warwick spa, on the seventh floor of Warwick Doha hotel located near the old Sports Roundabout, is an undiscovered gem of a spa, with a cozy feel and welcoming staff.
Seeing as it is February and with that special romantic celebration looming, you might want to perk up your winter bodies with a chocolate wrap and head massage, available until the end of the month and priced at QAR480 per couple.
It may sound a bit gooey but honestly, I was surprised at how the treatment made my skin feel smooth and refreshed. This was due to the expert massage technique of head therapist Azza. She was unfazed when I asked for strong pressure and was able to deliver, unlike some other massages I have experienced. This really seemed to get out those tightly wound stress knots. I asked her to concentrate around my shoulder area and along with the invigorating head scrub, Azza was able to help me leave with a bounce in my step. She genuinely wants people to enjoy the spa experience and her skills ensure that they do.
Once covered with melted chocolate and wrapped in clingfilm Azza worked her magic, before finishing off with aromatic oils, which she advised to leave on and not wash off to benefit more from the moisture-retaining layer on the skin.
The pressure of urban living means that the effects of treatments can be short-lived. Warwick Doha spa has a great promotion package for this very purpose, a ‘buy 5 and get 1 free’ option. How tempting!
If you have more time, there are other options with pool, steam and sauna access included. I was surprised to find it has an expansive rooftop and pool area, which is available to members as well as spa guests. The Warwick Doha is in a convenient location, so the next time I am stuck in a long traffic queue, I may just revisit Miss Azza and wait for it to subside.
The Warwick Doha is on Al Rayyan Road and has a number of packages and promotions available. Call the spa direct on 4456 3337, the hotel on 4456 3333, or visit warwickhotels.com/doha-hotel/ for more information.
