Luban Spa Dubai: An Omani gem dedicated to Frankincense

Join The Huntr as we present a closer look at homegrown Omani gem – Luban Spa Dubai. A relaxing oasis dedicated to frankincense in the heart of Umm Suqeim

Luban Spa’s two Omani-born founders had been working in the spa industry for over a decade before they decided to open the doors to their own homegrown gem in late 2017. Located inside a converted villa, the beauty haven offers a range of face, nail and body treatments using its prized aromatic resin – frankincense. But this isn’t any frankincense – this is Omani frankincense from the Dhofar region, which is thought to be the best quality frankincense in the world.

‘Luban’ in Arabic literally means ‘gum’ but is also the common name given to frankincense, which has been celebrated and used for centuries for its health and beauty benefits. Frankincense essential oil has been incorporated into all of the spa treatments alongside other special ingredients that are unique to Oman such as the Jebel Al Akhdar roses (which can be found in the rose clay mask). There are also a range of own-brand Frankincense products available to purchase for at-home use (and make the perfect gift).

On the ground floor the relaxing space features a room for manicure and pedicures complete with just three nail stations for the ultimate in boutique luxury, the reception area and the beautiful candle-lit, greenery-flanked stairs which lead up to the treatment rooms. Upstairs the rooms are prepared for various body and face treatments including facials, scrubs and massages and there is a peaceful relaxation area for post-treatment refreshments. The Huntr booked in for a full body scrub and massage. Our therapist was polite, professional and keen to make sure that we were comfortable. The scrub left our skin as smooth as a baby’s and the massage was just what we needed after a long hard week. After the treatments we were treated to healthy and delicious date energy balls and a restorative ginger and lemon tea. We can’t wait to return to try out the facial treatments next…
