Abu Dhabi, 3 February 2021: The inaugural Abu Dhabi Beauty Week (ADBW), running 4-14 February, will present beauty lovers with the opportunity to discover the latest beauty trends from industry leading experts and offer a range of exclusive deals on beauty products, treatments and many more.

Celebrating beauty inside and out, Abu Dhabi Beauty Week presents the Beauty Retreat, the first ever 3-day beauty and wellness retreat at Saadiyat Island, offering a wellness journey with celebrity instructor-led itineraries, mindful eating menus, mat-based practice, physical conditioning, restorative meditation, and the finest brands in the beauty world.

Hosted at Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi, the Beauty Retreat presents the ultimate self-care getaway, the perfect opportunity to revitalise, recharge and rejuvenate. Scheduled to take place 11-13 February 2021 at Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort, this retreat is an opportunity for participants to reconnect with themselves, rejuvenate, and go deeper in their well-being.

With ‘wellness’ being a major cornerstone of fitness worldwide, the retreat will deliver a well-rounded experience that fully encompasses the concept, offering three days of restorative balance, beauty regimen, cardio workouts, and shots of green juice.

The Sweat Studio will offer 5 packages led by top influencers from across the country varying from yoga and meditation to high-intensity cardio workouts including foam rolling, gong and sound bath meditations.

Kicking off the Beauty Retreat, the first package includes a flexibility session with calisthenics and mobility coach, Marina Violinha (mar_violinha), set to take place on 11 February 2021 from 16:00 to 17:00. From headstands to forearm stands, at this session, participants are invited to explore their pliancy, test their strength, stability and endurance limits and learn more about hand-balance and calisthenics.

The next two packages, a HIIT session with Nike Run Club Coach & Ambassador, Manal Rostom, in the morning, inclusive of breakfast, and Sunset Yoga and Restorative Meditation led by Stephanie Millman-Mulet (tranquil_steph) will take place on the following day on 12 February 2021, from 07:00 to 10:00 and 17:00 to 18:00, respectively.

The session with Manal would consist of one-hour-long High Intensity Interval exercises, popularly known as HIIT, beginning with a 2-minute warm up to get heart rates slowly rising and ending with a relaxing stretching session. The full body HIIT circuit will include three sets of exercises targeted at the core, lower, and upper body, with each set being repeated three times with one-minute breaks between each set.

Australian yoga instructor, Stephanie, will host a relaxing and fun Vinyasa Yoga class. Focused on alignment and deep breathing to relax the muscles, participants can experience their mind, body, heart and souls open up during this session as they admire the beautiful sunset over the Saadiyat sea. To finish off this session, enjoy a relaxing restorative meditation to let go of any stress or worries and leave feeling utterly rejuvenated.

The fourth package is scheduled for 13 February 2021, the final day of the Beauty Retreat, and will see Sara Al Sayegh lead an incredibly energising box session. Enjoy a fast-paced 45-minute fusion of boxing and Muay Thai fitness, incorporating all aspects of the Muay Thai boxing art and all the fun that comes with combat sports. Participants will get a quick introduction to the "Art of 8 Limbs" and how it can be incorporated into an exciting and dynamic workout.

Finally, the fifth will offer a fully inclusive Overnight Spa Retreat package available during ADBW from 11 February 2021, for AED 2800 per person and AED 4000 for two.

Guests can check in for the retreat at 3pm and enjoy some time by the pool or beach, followed by Sunset Yoga, Sleep Support Session and end the day with a hearty dinner at the newly launched Lobster Lounge. The second day begins with breakfast at the resort’s contemporary restaurant, White, followed by a fitness class at Bodyism Gym. After the intensive workout, guests can experience a revitalising spa treatment, Royal Hammam Ritual, and end the retreat with a relaxed lunch at Mare Mare or TEAN.

Following the launch of ADBW, the Spa Retreat will be available all year long at Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort, offering a tailor-made itinerary and experience. Based on individual preferences, guests can craft their own package and choose between a three, five or seven-day package.

Prices for the packages vary with discounted fees available for members of the resort’s in-house fitness outlet, Bodyism Gym and full prices for non-members. To take advantage of the reduced price, participants can get a monthly or annual membership at Bodyism and enjoy many other amazing benefits available, from a free night’s stay to spa treatments, beach passes and food and beverage discounts, all depending on the membership type and duration.

The gym offers wide ranging amenities, classes and sessions suitable for users of all fitness levels and a selection of membership offers ranging from all-inclusive membership packages, class-focused memberships, or, for those that require one-on-one guidance, a personal training package.
