The Retreat Palm Dubai MGallery by Sofitel
We love a good staycay – it’s in our DNA – and with a break at The Retreat Palm Dubai MGallery by Sofitel, you’ll learn a bit more about your genetic makeup, too.
The wellbeing resort on the Palm is offering free state-of-the-art genetics testing when you go for a staycation.
The wellness experts will then decode your results and provide personalised recommendations for how you can make your lifestyle more healthy, including nutrition tips and wellness treatments.
As well as deciphering your body’s mysteries, you’ll also be able to enjoy a beachside staycay in a secluded retreat, which is just what the doctor ordered.
