Living in Egypt is quiet stressful. Long hours of traffic jams, polluted air, hectic working hours, stressful working environments and very short weekends make it an absolute must to pamper ourselves every now and then.

I’ve been to many spas in Egypt, but the one I always keep coming back to is the one in Four Seasons Nile Plaza. With its unbelievably breathtaking view of the Nile, luxurious set up, a team of certified beauty professionals and outstanding treatments, this place is a little slice of heaven for those who need to recharge their mind and soul once or twice a month.

The minute you step inside, you literally feel yourself detach from the busy world outside. The warm atmosphere, beautiful aromatherapy smells, enchanting fusion of brewing herbal teas and the dim lights relaxes you immediately. You are welcomed with a delicious cold drink and asked to choose the kind of body/ facial treatment you require.

The two treatments I constantly come back for are: Nefertari Herbal massage and Moroccan Bath Ritual. The Nefertari Herbal is the perfect massage for people suffering from insomnia, jet lag or emotional imbalance. The massage is targeting achy joints all over the body, with a beautiful blend of chamomile and mint. The relaxing smell of chamomile and the rejuvenating smell of mint completely loosen up any physical or mental tension.

The Moroccan Bath Ritual is a body treatment that is specifically tailored to enhance the body’s glow. The original Moroccan body loofah and natural olive oil soap refreshes the skin and increases better circulation of the blood, while vigorously exfoliating dead skin cells and cleaning up the pores. This is followed by a Dead Sea deep cleaning mud mask treatment that leaves the whole body feeling smooth, soft and supple.

But, that’s not all. Finishing off the treatment is only the beginning of this pampering day. After your treatment you then get the chance to jump in the pool and top it all off with the most delicious lunch.

Afterwards, you are invited to use the rest of the spa’s facilities, like the Jaccuzzi, steam room, sauna and, if you dare, have a dip in an ice-cold water tub. After two hours of soul feeding, you are escorted to a wonderful panoramic-view living room to enjoy a soothing herbal tea while overlooking Egypt’s most spectacular treasure: The Nile.

A day full of treatments, a delicious lunch, and a sip of warm herbal tea during sunset is the perfect end to a hectic week. Four Seasons Nile Plaza’s Spa is always at your rescue whenever you find the urge to pamper your body and recharge your exhausted mind.
