It was like a Royal welcome as its located in one of the posh Villas in Jumeirah, it was a fantasy land for me where you will only get pampered more and more. The sacred architectural design of Tirta Spa is a fusion of different Asian styles, borrowed from spiritual cultures and temples. With attention given to even the minutest detail. The influences are primarily Thai, Indonesia, Indian and Middle Eastern. The cogon roofs, the extensive use of indigenous Narra wood, red bricks from Vigan and Mactan stone. Capiz lights made from oyster shell , 3 rooms comprises of the Arabic, Japapnese and Phillipines culture where each room is decorated according to the respective cultures imported all with love and care.

I was lucky enough to try their Hot Puka Shell Massage but to start with it let me first tell you how they welcomed me with a drink dipped in crystals like AMETHYST, AVENTURINE QUARTZ & ROSE QUARTZ.

Welcome Drink

I had to fill up a form of my various health issue, my stress level. anxieties and pains etc which was helped the Therapist to figure out the pressure points in my body along with all abnormalities.

Hot Puka Shell Massage : AED 550

To start with as according to their rituals I was Foot Scrub in Stones and Scrubs, even if you come for any Salon treatment this ritual is given to everyone as complimentary. So enjoy your Foot Scrub along with a cup of refreshing green tea.

They also offered me a Steam Bath which is worth AED 50 for 15 mins, you get all drenched out and get ready to pamper yourself with the long 1.5 hour Massage with Hot Shells.

I chose to go with the Carrot Seeds instead of the Mandarin Oil oil which  can be attributed to its properties as an antiseptic, disinfectant, detoxifying, antioxidant, anticarcinogenic, carminative, depurative, diuretic, emenagogue, stimulant, cytophylactic, tonic, and vermifuge substance.

Carrot Seed Oil

At the beginning and end of each treatment, cymbals and singing bowls are used by the therapists to create mantra, or a sound for enhancing meditation. Incense burning in the villas not only creates an exotic aroma, but also serves to drive away demons and release bad spirits.

The clam shell provides warmth and, in turn, emotional healing and deep tranquility for your soul. The natural, self-heating technology, dried kelp and algae from the underwater forests that they use inside the shells, create a constant, reliable and powerful heat, without the use of electricity and emit the scent of the ocean, allowing your mind to drift off to thoughts of the mystery and wonders of the sea. All of the ingredients and products used in this innovative and most therapeutic of massage tools are, in keeping with their ‘green’ concept, biodegradable and recyclable.



Each original clam shell that they use has been collected in an eco-friendly way. Tirta Spa Tiger- Striped Clam shells, gathered from the shores of The Philippines, have historically only been harvested for their meat. Recycling the shells in this way, without waste, for use as one of our the therapeutic tools, enhances this innovative new feature of our holistic treatments and is just one of the ways that at Tirta Spa play our part in helping the environment.


The LAVA GEL tea bag that is placed inside the shell, contains calcium and iron and has been developed using self-heating technology.

When you lie down on the massage bed, the therapist will begin by performing on you the
Tirta Spa traditional stretching, whilst waiting for the sea-shell to heat up. Once it has reached optimum heat, the hot shell will be used to massage your skin. The warmth that the sea-shell transmits will penetrate deeply into your body, whilst, at the same time, absorbing all the cold and imbalances from your body, encouraging the flow of the chi energy in order for you to once again experience a sense of re-balance. How long the heat in the shells lasts for depends upon how cold your body is inside – if you require a lot of heat, the shells


Hilot is an ancient Filipino therapeutic massage. The treatment begins with the therapist scanning your back, searching for imbalances in your body. Then, any tension detected in the body will be relieved by the therapist slowly applying pressure to those specific pressure points of the body which need to be de-stressed. This will bring balance to one’s entire being. Applying the therapeutic oil that you select supplements the Hilot treatment and helps to regulate the body’s temperature. Combining chiropractic methods and ancient Filipino meditation techniques, the Tirta Hilot not only helps to alleviate muscle tension, but is also a remedy for easing painful joints and generally assists in preventing illness.

My therapist Miss. Olive has got magic in her hands, she knows my pressure point and all the imbalances in my body. I am all stress free after taking this wonderful and magical treatment and all thanks to Olive.
