Number of luxury spa hotels in Dubai set to increase by 2021

A new report by Colliers International has revealed that the number of five-star spa hotels in Dubai is set to increase by 11 per cent annually by 2021. The Spa & Wellness Travel was produced exclusively for the Arabian Travel Market.

According to data released by Colliers International, the number of five-star spa hotels in Dubai is expected to increase from 107 in 2017 to 157 in 2021. New openings include The Spa at Palazzo Versace Dubai and The Bulgari Spa. Both upscale spa hotels are set to bring projected annual spa revenues of US$495 million, to the emirate by 2019.

Simon Press, the Senior Exhibition Director of the Arabian Travel Market, commented: 

“Regionally, the spa sector is multi-faceted and sensitive to events and developments in many other sectors, including global health, beauty and wellness trends.

 “In 2017, we saw focus increase across these areas and Dubai was quick to capitalise and innovate, with the debut of a number of luxury-branded hotel spas. However, spas are no longer associated exclusively with the luxury market."

Mr Press explained:

“As a result, we see more choice at various price points, a diversification in treatments, competitive marketing techniques and an increase in the number of spa management courses available to professionals.”

Data from spas that made up a total of 369 treatment rooms across Dubai and Abu Dhabi was analysed in the Spa & Wellness Travel report. The number of wellness trips to the GCC in 2015 increased by 44 per cent, compared to 2013. The number of spas in the region increased by 27 per cent, with Bahrain and Oman seeing the strongest growth in spa visitors. Bahrain also recorded the highest rise (17 per cent) in revenue during this period.

In 2018, the United Arab Emirate will open a total of 83 new hotels in 2018, with many offering upscale spa and wellness amenities. Throughout the Middle East, an additional 500 new hotels are scheduled to open by 2020.

Dubai is home to some of the world’s most luxurious hotels and resorts. Some of the most lavish spas can be found in properties including the dhow-shaped Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, The Shangri-La Hotel Dubai, Armani Hotel Dubai, Raffles Dubai, and Bulgari Hotel & Resorts Dubai.
