The luxury Banyan Tree Al Wadi resort in Ras Al Khaimah has launched what it claims is the first and only complete hydrothermal experience in the UAE.
Launched at the resort's newly opened Banyan Tree Spa, "The Rainforest" boasts "invigorating hydrothermal experiences infused with time-honoured Asian wellness philosophy".
Spanning 2,080 square metres, The Rainforest at Banyan Tree Spa Al Wadi is the largest within the Banyan Tree Group, with the facility first launched globally in 2008 at Banyan Tree Spa Sanya in China.
Banyan Tree Spa Al Wadi features ten indoor treatment pavilions with twin spa beds, including six deluxe pavilions with attached shower room with steam and four royal pavilions each with a hydro-jet bathtub, among other facilities.
Located in Wadi Khadeja in Ras Al Khaimah, Banyan Tree Al Wadi is promoted as the first luxury desert spa resort in the UAE that offers "an all-pool villa concept and a 3,960-square metre Asian-inspired hydrotherapy spa within its own nature reserve, as well as a beach club, an 18-hole championship golf course and extensive recreational facilities".
