THE RITUAL AT MARRAKECH SPA
The ritual begins with hosing you down with buckets of warm water. After, your body will be slathered with a luxury black soap made of olives and eucalyptus. Once fully soaped you are left for 10 minutes to relax and breathe the lovely smell of eucalyptus and mint in the steamy Hammam. After few moments another wash with buckets of water and then the exfoliating begins.
Loofa-like gloves called a Kessa is used to clean the sweaty skin of the entire residue accumulated during the day. Every inch of the body is thoroughly scrubbed to remove the dead skin before you are washed again.
The next stage is the application of ghassoul clay on the entire body, a ritual very specific to Morocco that you can only find in the Middle Atlas. You are left to relax for a further 5 or 10 minutes, while the mask takes effect.
The last phase of the luxury Marrakech spa treatment is the sugar and Argan oil rub with a real intense sweet and wonderful aroma. Argan oil comes from the fruit of the argan tree, which grows only in Morocco. This ensures the final remaining roughness is removed and hydrates the skin at the same time.
After the Hammam treatment, one of our Moroccan and Cypriot specialists will reward you with a relaxing soothing massage session. You will be asked which oil you would prefer, but we suggest Argan oil for its benefits reputation.
At the end of your Hammam session, you will be offered Moroccan traditional tea and exquisite pastries, cakes in the cooling area while watching a video projection documentary on Morocco.
