Luthan Spa

Ladies! I went to the Luthan Spa for the first time this week and it was more fabulous than I thought it would be and just had to share. I went with a very dear girlfriend of mine, which made it a lot of fun because we got to dissect the experience as it happened. Ok, so the first remark I have to make is that this spa was very nice. It had that mmmmm spa smell and it was decently decorated.


Here is the locker room where we took off our clothes and took pictures of each other. Now now, we had robes on. I know this might sound ridiculous to some of you, but my friend and I had a discussion on how much clothing we thought we should wear under our robes. In the end, it was no different than any other spa in the West.


The photo snapping came to an abrupt halt in the lounge area after we were told to put our cameras away, which I suppose should have been obvious. Due to my deep commitment to this blog and to you, my dear readers, I secretly took pictures anyway ha ha ha suckers. Check out the relaxation room! It had individual water beds where you could rest from all the hard spa work!


We got a tour of the facilities and there was an impressive collection of specialized treatment rooms for an array of therapies, like Ayurvedic treatments, Balinese massages, and Mermaid MRI. Ok, it wasn't a Mermaid MRI, it was a heated waterbed massage thingy, but the full body machine was in the shape of sparkly shell. I swear it on my life. They also had quite a selection of steam and sauna rooms in the pool area with different themes, like a Moroccan Hammam and an herbal sauna that smelled like heaven. None of the treatment rooms were set up for more than one person, so that's something to keep in mind if you go with a friend. You ain't gonna be yapping through your mud wraps unless you make good conversation with walls and ceilings (I admit this happens at home sometimes). You will also want to book in advance if you are getting a package done because even though the spa looked pretty dang empty when we got there, they insisted it was a busy day.

Anywho I had a wonderful massage there, a hair treatment, a facial, and a back mud wrap. They were all very nice, barring the painful bits during the facial, and it really was a wonderful day, made even better by the company I had with me!

I envy you!hehe.getting massage is one of my guilty pleasures back in the Phils. But to get a massage here? Impossible! I'm sure it's way expensive so that leaves me massaging myself, pressing and rubbing my very own sexy body here and there.lol! I know it's obvious but is this spa for women only? Do you know of a men spa where I can get a good but not costly thai/swedish or holistic massage? Fine if there's none coz even if there is I still can't and won't go not until I have a buddy to go with. hehe

Pretty sure it's gonna be expensive though!

What were the costs like?

Om lujain it's too bad you don't go anymore, I think you deserve a nice treatment there right now!

AAF - shoot I threw away the flyer already. but I remember they had "express" packages where you could get two treatments for 500 riyals. Like a massage and a back wrap, or a facial and a hair treatment. So I imagine a massage on its own will probably be in the 300-400 riyal range. It seemed like standard Western prices.
