Rest is essential to health and wellbeing, and key to feeling rejuvenated. We pick eight ways to guarantee the best night’s sleep on your next Jumeirah stay.


Relax with a sleep improvement massage

Float off into a relaxing dream state at Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort and Spa, where a signature 75-minute sleep massage uses acupressure to stimulate the pineal gland, the body’s sleep centre. This calming massage has been said to induce a centring sense of inner peace and balance, and is perfect for resetting sleep patterns following jetlag or periods of restlessness.

Try out sleep support therapy

This signature programme, available in Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort, is based on clinical research and ancient practices and designed to help address sleep concerns and solve insomnia. Tailored treatments begin with guided meditation and yogic pranayamas – breathing exercises said to positively impact the energy within. This is followed by a full-body ‘Blissful Marma’ massage, which releases tension and brings the body’s rhythms back into balance, and finally the ‘Facial Marma’ massage which stimulates the pineal gland. This holistic sleep support treatment aims to bring emotional and hormonal balance, and also includes a Subtle Energies Sleeping Kit to take home.


Discover the soothing experience of eiderdown comforters 

Rest in feathery luxury at Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, where these ultra-luxurious duvets can be found on every bed in every suite. The whisper-soft down is harvested from abandoned eider duck nests in Iceland, and is extremely rare. One nest provides about 15-20g of eiderdown, and only 2000kg is allowed to be harvested each year. Pair this with one of 17 types of pillows available – from revitalising silk to hypo-allergenic – and you’ve got a recipe for the perfect night’s sleep.

Rest easy in a bed made for maximum comfort

The finest cedar wood, Swedish steel, organic latex and Egyptian cotton, have been combined with the Pascal system, an international unit of pressure, to create the exceptional Dux bed at Burj Al Arab Jumeirah. What makes the Dux bed stand out is the option to customise your sleep pressure preferences, so the mattress offers the exact amount of support you will need throughout the night to help you wake up feeling relaxed and refreshed. At Jumeirah Al Naseem the super-soft mattresses on all beds are by Hypnos – the official supplier to Buckingham Palace


Make jet lag a thing of the past

If you are a frequent flyer then you will know the toll that travelling through time zones can take on the body and mind. The floatation therapy room at Talise Spa, Jumeirah Emirates Towers offers a great way to help you get over jet lag quickly. Sixty minutes floating in this sensory pool is said to be as good as eight hours’ sleep. Emerge feeling deeply relaxed and ready to enjoy your holiday.
