Spa Tapas?


by Jeanne Sutton
08th Jul 2014

First, add the word ?spapas? to your beauty lexicon, then ask the questions…

The Marker Hotel on Grand Canal Square is pretty much one of Dublin’s best spots with it’s rooftop bar and Le Drunch – that’s a Parisian brunch and means you imbide cocktails later than usual – and now the Hotel is cornering yet another demographic with it’s spa tapas menu.

What is spa tapas? The so-called spapas menu is a selection of affordable beauty treatments for beauty lovers on the go and includes up to fifteen express treatments that do all the pampering without the costly weekend away. Treatments come in 15 and 30 minute express slots. For €10 you can partake in a 15 minute treatment of an eyelash tint, eyebrow tint, eyebrow shape, lip wax, chin wax or underarm wax. The 30 minute spapas are priced €25 per treatment and include californian wax, half leg wax, file & polish hands, file & polish toes and long lasting polish. There is also deluxe 30 minute spapas which are priced €45 per treatment and include Pro peel facial, back massage, indian head massage, brazilian and Hollywood waxing.

We’re already devoted fans of the award-wining Marker Spa and Wellness Area so can see spspas becoming a payday essential. And with the Hotel being right in the centre of IFSC and Docklands action we can see a lot of office and tech gals making some productive lunchtime appointments. And while you sit back and get beautified you can enjoy a Coco Face Coconut Water which is delicious fresh coconut water straight from the shell and priced €6.

Spapas are available Monday – Friday, from 11.30am – 3pm.? The Marker will give a complimentary 15 minute Spapa on every ninth Spapas visit. See here for more information.
