Trade dinner and drinks for some me-time at your next girls get together…

Some nights, we just don’t feel like putting our heels on and battling our way into crowded bars for the sake of three free drinks. Step forward spa-based ladies’ nights, which offer a discounted deal in a more tranquil setting.

So this week, in place of free-flowing cocktails and bottomless glasses of grape, why not go for massages, manis and hair makeovers?

Here are five Dubai ladies’ night spa deals you need to know about.

Fairmont Dubai

Every Tuesday, The Spa at Fairmont Dubai provides a full day of pampering for ladies. It starts with pool time, an a la carte lunch and light refreshments, followed by a 2pm yoga and meditation hour. Then ladies are invited to calm the muscles in the sauna and steam room, before picking from a choice of two 30 minute treatments which includes massages and facials.

The Spa at Fairmont Dubai, Sheikh Zayed Road, 2pm to 10pm, Tuesdays, Dhs365. Tel: (04) 311 8800.

Silk Spa, Habtoor Palace

Okay, so this one does include drinks, but as it’s got a spa element too, we reckon it deserves a mention.
