Tekmida Body Ritual at Iridium Spa


St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort

Time to be refreshed and rejuvenated this Holy Month with Iridium Spa’s bespoke ‘Tekmida Body Ritual’, a unique, nourishing and therapeutic treatment that balances and invigorates the body and soul.

‘Tekmida Body Ritual’ is a very special and unique treatment that effectively balances the body’s energies, promotes relaxation, and relieves stress.

An invigorating, therapeutic and refreshing treatment, the ‘Tekmida Body Ritual’ is ideal for those who are fasting or anyone who is feeling low on energy.
