Looking for the best women-only spas in Riyadh?

Luthan Hotel and Spa
This spa is based in the city’s diplomatic district and is one of the few to double as a women-only hotel. There’s only 25 rooms in the boutique property, but that certainly doesn’t affect the number of facilities available. There’s an aqua meditation room, herbal sauna, Turkish bath and an ice fountain pool as well as a range of other well thought out spa rooms. Popular treatments on their menu include their ‘gommage the au Nepal’ award-winning body scrub and their purifying facial.
