We here at TheFashSet got the privilege of experiencing an absolutely heavenly facial at none other than the Heavenly Spa, located at the the Westin Golf Resort & Spa in Abu Dhabi. The Heavenly Spa is the first spa in the UAE to bring in the world renowned Elemis skincare products that originate from the UK. In addition to the products, they have introduced an array of facials given with Elemis products, which are labeled Biotec Facials. We were able to experience one of these facials and the results were just astounding! Let us elaborate…
What is a Biotec facial? Elemis states that a Biotec facial is a procedure that combines a unique high-potency activator and specially designed ELEMIS Skin Lift Touch. Using the power of hands-on therapy, the Skin Lift Touch softens and prepares the skin. Significantly improving skin function, it enables it to convert energy from each technology and “receive” the actives more effectively, whilst re-balancing the skin’s micro-flora. In addition, it uses targeted enzymes to accelerate the skin’s biological exfoliation process and the treatment helps to effectively remove the thickening layer of the epidermis to leave your skin feeling brighter and smoother.
Elemis offers different Biotec Facials, depending on your skin type and what you are trying to achieve. They have a selection of six different Biotec facials for ladies and even one for the lovely man in your life! The selection includes:
- Triple-tec Anti-Wrinkle Facial

I chose to have the Sonic Skin Radiance Facial and it really was amazing! The facial lasted one-hour and after my skin felt so incredibly soft and I felt like I could really see results from just that one treatment. And the luxury didn’t end there. After the facial, you are led to an adjacent room where you can relax on their luxurious white leather sofas sipping ginger and camomile tea as well as enjoying an array of fresh homemade juices and healthy goodies, like granola cookies, almonds and more.
The facial was really top notch and we plan on going back again soon! I loved the outcome so much, I even purchase the Marine Dream Collection skincare pack which includes:
- Pro-Collagen Marine Cream 100ml SUPERSIZE
- Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream 100ml SUPERSIZE
- NEW Pro-Radiance Illuminating Eye Balm 10ml FULL SIZE
- Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm 105g FULL SIZE
- Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks 2 sachets
- Luxury Cotton Cleansing Cloth
In addition to the facials, the Heavenly Spa offers an Elemis Facial Assessment report, which I tried as well, which will give you a complete facial analysis of your problem areas, such as wrinkles, spots, pores, etc. and will then give you an Elemis Skin and Lifestyle Programme which will advise which products you should use according to the results of your facial assessment report.
All in all, I must definitely recommend visiting the Heavenly Spa at the Westin and trying one of their Elemis Biotec Facials. If you want extreme luxury and high-end service and products then I promise you will not be disappointed. Actually, you will thank me for it ; )
