Only In Dubai: World's First Hello Kitty Spa Opens

hello kitty spaA hot pink spa with a Parisian theme in the middle of Dubai designed by someone in Japan – it sounds like a spot with an identity crisis, but for lovers of the cult favorite Hello Kitty brand, it's practically purr-fection.

Sorry, we couldn't help ourselves.

Newly opened in Dubai's Jumeriah Town Centre, the Hello Kitty Beauty Spa caters to both young girls and women alike with a variety of treatments ranging from hand massages to "kitty-cures." Ratings of "queen" and "princess" denote if the treatment is meant for kids or adults.

More of a beauty salon and less of a true day spa, the treatments focus on the aesthetic – haircuts, blowouts, up-dos and mani pedis – than the true "spa" treatments like facials or body massages. But, if you want, you can get the famed Hello Kitty "Kitty White" character painted on your nails, or snack on an organic cupcake post-treatment at the cafe.

Thanks to the Daily Mail
for initially tipping us off. We'll pop in for a kitty-cure next time we're in Dubai.

What do you think about this new spa? A great treat for devotees of the famous cartoon brand, or a creepy place for anyone but kids and teens? Frankly, we're just shocked Japan didn't get one first.
