Marrakech Spa experience
Even if you are not normally into visiting spas, if you
go to Marrakech we 'd highly recommend you think about this experience as one
of great things to do whilst here. So you know what you're letting yourself in
for, here is an idea of what it's like.
- What you need to take: Nothing! Not even a swimsuit. On arrival you will be given some disposable pants to wear, and your belongings will be kept in a lockable locker. Ladies, tops are not used. Don't wear makeup, and remove jewellery (rings are OK). Towels, slippers and a robe will all be provided.
- How long it takes: This really depends on what treatment you choose, if any. You can simply go for a hammam, and most of these will be for about half an hour or so. I'd very much recommend going for the hammam and body scrub as a minimum though. A lady (usually) washes you then scrubs you with an abrasive glove, so you end up with silky smooth skin. If you want you can add to this with a treatment, such as a massage. A 30 minute massage makes a lovely end to the whole experience. There is usually a long list of treatment options at various rates.
- What you pay: Again this very much depends on where you go, but the better places will cost around £30-40 for a hammam and scrub, and roughly the same again for a short massage.
- Is it communal? Most places offer a private experience just for you or you and your partner or friends. This means you will be in the hammam by yourselves, so you can really relax and modesty or embarrassment is not an issue.
- When to go: It really doesn't matter, you'll find it more comfortable if it's not after a big meal. If you are in town on a Sunday that is often a good time to go, as many shops and some sights are closed this day.
All in all, if you're looking for a bit of relaxation on
your time in Marrakech, a hammam or spa experience is well worth it.
where to go
There are public hammams (hot baths) all over the city, but we would rather recommend you head for a spa in a riad or hotel, or a specific spa establishment. Perhaps try Les Bains de Marrakech, or La Sultana, or La Maison Arabe. And remember to book in advance.
