WARNING: STAY AWAY family men and women.
I researched hard a place with good reviews for a clean massage but alas THEY ARE NO DIFFERENT.
Bottom line: Only go to places offering Moroccan Bath that have same gender therapists.
During the treatment they ask you if you want extras and I was disgusted. Unfortunately being part of a 4 to 5 star Majlis Grand Mercure Residence Hotel, they still seem to be similar to other scam spas around the city. Hard to find a clean relaxing place in Abu Dhabi/Dubai. Never going back.
I went to this place seeking a relaxed experience. Tried the Moroccan bath for the first time. Was told it was a sauna followed by a srub. I was told only female therapists were available and having taken massages world over, I was not too bothered thinking it is like a standard massage and scrub.
Had a oil massage prior to Moroccan bath. The lady asked if I wanted to remove my disposable underwear which should have been the first flag.
She was good and kept her limits but never bothered to care to cover me and I had to keep covering my self and she kept asking to relax.
She then handed a bathrobe and we proceeded to the Moroccan massage. She applied soap all over the body and proceeded to tear the disposable underwear. I was not ok with it and had to ask for a towel.
She got the message and respected my limits. I struck a conversation saying how this would be a no no in most places in US and she asked if they give extras there and I said I don't care nor do I ask about it. She they explained how most spas here give extras and body to body but she limits herself to a hand job. Her husband back in Thailand was aware of it and what a shame how these people are exploited. I kept the towel on throughout and finished my treatment feeling how these rackets are run openly even in named chains.
I mentioned to the front desk how they should have male therapists for male customers atleast for Moroccan baths and the lady smiled and said they don't have it at any of their places.
Seeing so many positive reviews from both Male and Female customers, I feel its an open secret and people in fact pay for such services, what a Shame and Sham.
