The crown jewel of the Corniche waterfront, Emirates Palace Abu Dhabi is all about the 79th element — from its gold-flaked cappuccinos and gold-dusted camel burgers to its gilded suites and lobby. Expect no less from the hotel’s bedazzled spa, where the fabulous Day of Gold treatment lasts for more than five hours. The top-to-toe treatment pairs full-body massages with a showstopping facial, in which 24-karat gold-leaf sheets are micronised and massaged into the skin while an ultrasonic nano-mister permeates the metallic glow with constant hydration. By the end of the treatment, you’ll be glowing.
