The Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont The Palm has always been a favourite for its slightly more obscure treatment offering, and its most recent addition – involving a bed of warm quartz sand – continues the theme. Known as psammotherapy (hot sand therapy), guests lie on a bed of warmed quartz sand that contours the body in a cocoon effect. Gentle wave-like sensations flow through the sand during the treatment while aromatherapy capsules diffuse a scent to softly swathe you into bliss. This multisensorial experience is best preceded with a 15-minute visit to the sauna followed by the ice fountain – well and truly worth it.
