Fascinated by traditional medicine and cosmetics, Nathalie and Jean-Louis Poiroux journeyed around the world in search of the best beauty rituals. Their discoveries provided the founding principles for the creation of Cinq Mondes, the French spa located in Emerald Palace Kempinski Dubai.
Through its treatments and products, Cinq Mondes is all about the deep regeneration of the body and mind to recreate a state of perfect balance – even inside skin cells – for naturally happy, well everything. Tucked away within the luxurious Palace, the spacious spa is an urban sanctuary of peace and wellbeing. An enchanting décor with multiple alcoves sets the stage for a warmly intimate and bright atmosphere.
Cinq Mondes is 3,000 square metres of pure bliss, and comprises 23 treatment rooms, including two double suites, four Cinq Mondes traditional deep soaking Japanese wooden bathtubs – two of which are double facing – and seven scrub rooms. The Spa also has two hammams (separate for women and men) boasting Arabian-inspired décor.
For the Balinese massage, we were immersed in a world of tranquillity with this ancient experience. The sensorial escape includes gentle Thai stretching and traditional smoothing movements, in addition to a tropical nuts melting body balm to provide the ultimate treat for the skin.
Not to be missed are the spa facilities, which include a warm room, a sauna for the more daring and a tropical shower experience with everything from drizzles and mists to full-on rain, complete with mood lights and bird sound effects. The relaxation room is cosy, with cream curtains draped over every bed for privacy and you’re bound to find everything you need in there, from micellar water to quality hair dryers and moisturiser – not to mention some Salvatore Ferragamo treats.
Cinq Mondes is, to put it simply, an ode to luxury, set within the world of opulence that is Emerald Palace Kempinski Dubai.
