Let me begin by saying that Yibreem Spa is amazing! I went in to trim my hair, but ended up doing 8 more treatments excluding the hair cut.
Yibreen is co-owned by Princess Reema bint Bandar. You might know of Her Highness from her efforts to increase breast cancer awareness in the Kingdom. Located just off Takhasussi Street, Yibreen has a gym, personal training sessions, a café, an outdoor swimming pool, a retail store, a salon and spa. I guess the idea behind it was to provide an all in one service in one location for women. It seems to be super successful as the place was packed and I went on a weekday!
When you walk into Yibreen, you’ll notice that it’s similar to a compound. There are various villas located along a middle promenade, with each house providing a separate service. The whole set up is aesthetically pleasing and very calming. The layout is perfect and will transport you away for a few hours.
The majority of employees are from Lebanon and the Philippines, in addition to a few American and English personal trainers .
Now on to the treatments. The following is a list of all the treatments that I had. I booked them over two days. As I mentioned earlier, the trim is what I initially booked as it was least risky option to test out the salon. (I did the same thing at Luthan and I didn’t like the way they handled my hair, so I had to switch hairdressers. In case you’re wondering why I left Mariyah, I found the set up too depressing to keep going back every 5 weeks, and the staff started to look too homesick.)

For me to spend 2 days at a spa consecutively means that I loved this place! The only other place that exceeds Yibreen’s is probably the spa at the Park Hyatt in Jeddah, which is AMAZING!
My favourite treatment at Yibreen was the Shiffa Hammam Ancienne. It was so relaxing, perfect after a whole semester of crouching over books studying.
Shiffa Hammam Ancienne
Shiffa hammam is based on ancient methods, therapeutic science and the secrets of hammam. Indulge yourself in an exotic cleansing ritual that includes herbal steams, traditional soaping, clay body mask, perfumed waters, heated sand bag and hydration. Each step in the treatment has historical background and a physiological action on the body. This action, combined with the products therapeutic value, leave your mind and body feeling cleansed and relaxed, yet alert and energised.
Shiffa is a Dubai-based beauty brand, and offer one of the best pregnancy oils ever! My sister used it on her stretch marks, even though she wasn’t pregnant, and it made her stretch marks disappear. (Of course, she eats healthily and nothing processed.) It could be the massage effect but do try their pregnancy body oils for your stretch marks. If you don’t want to buy their oil but still want to get rid of stretch marks, melt equal amounts of cocoa butter, aloe butter, coconut oil, shea butter, a little avocado oil and essential orange oil into a mixture. Use it twice a day on your belly and other stretch marks. The natural mix is what one of my aunts used and she had 5 children (naturally) but zero stretch marks. Combine this with a good diet and adequate exercise, you should notice a difference in the visibility of stretch marks.
Yibreen’s offer eyebrow threading and eyebrow waxing services. My friends use the lady at Yibreen’s for their eyebrow maintenance, and their eyebrows look great all the time. I think that threading looks too painful so I can’t add my experience about this. I would suggest making a visit to Yibreen, and see how comfortable you feel with the beautician before going ahead with the eyebrow threading.
They also offer membership options, which provides you with a discount on all treatments and sessions, along with access to the Yibreen compound. Currently, membership costs 9,500 SAR per year, but there are 6 month and monthly memberships available. Yibreen is closed for August, but keep an eye out for their special membership options when they reopen in September.
Please find below an overview of the treatment and price list at Yibreen. (The prices are more expensive than Mariyah’s)
P.S. I just found out that Ameerah, one of the best hairdresser in Riyadh, has left the salon after 11 years. I am not sure who the new hairdresser is, but I hope they are at least half as good as Ameerah!
