Default Massage in Abu Dhabi

Hi

Is anyone able to recommend somewhere for a good full body massage. Preferably somewhere which allows men and women?

Not hotel based if possible

Thanks

Why is everything you ask always non-hotel based?

I would say either 'Al Falah' on Airport Road, or 'Zen' at the Al Diar Regency Hotel on Salam Street.

Both reasonably civilized affairs but if you ask nicely they will also do your nuts.

I think its also fairly obvious why i want non hotel. They charge you a fortune when you can easily get the same standard and service at other places

Thanks for your recommendations though :-)

I think both Al Dair and Al Falah were around 150dh/ hour. Balls extra.

"Touch Sense" Spa , not 100% sure about the name; right behind the 5 storey New Medical Centre building in Madinat Zayed; 150 for 1 hr

Millhouse, where exactly is the Al Falah one?

Airport road -- 500m from junction with corniche. Same building as Crafty Corner (I think). First (or second) floor.

one of these two buildings:

Are you related to Meantalist?


EDIT - to those that have asked: yes, that misspelling is deliberate.

Blitz bar, Ally Pally or 49ers all have 'masseuses' available and they are not to fussy if its a man and woman at the same time. About 300 chips for the night apparently.

They cover the whole body for you and really get into those seldom used muscles.
