Massage /Spa therapist conditions of working in Dubai

Hi there!

I'm interested in job offers for the position of a spa/ massage therapist in Dubai.
First of all, I'd like to ask if they make a difference between a massage and spa therapist and what the requirements are accordingly. I don't have a medical degree in massage therapies, I've  taken courses and the rest I've learned through my  working experience. My managers have themselves been qualified massage therapists.

So, another question I'd like to ask is about salary. I've recently signed in a site called SpaStaff and I see salaries ranging between 1800-2000 AED. Isn't that too low for a salary?

Thanks very much in advance!
All the best,


Good Massage Therapist ranging in UAE is between AED 3000/- to AED 7000 in a good Spa company.


Thank you!

Yes it's too low.. not worth it at all

For which job do you mean?

Have you applied for any job in Dubai?

Yes, I have- on, but it was too soon, so I'm waiting for reply (if it happens at all)

I also work for Hospitality for MENA region, you can send me your papers

2000 is very less. you have experienced person who can look into international hotel spas where they give minimum 5000.

I wouldn't recommend you to engage in that field, I'm talking about massage, basically this is due to awful reputation and prostitution. On the other hand, Spa for recognized hotels (4-5 stars) are way better and offer acceptable salaries. If you are student, get higher education in health or similar to your interest to expand your chances.
