Indulge In A Spa Tradition
Spa De Marrakech is the only Melbourne day spa to offer you the opportunity to experience the ancient tradition of Hammam rituals at a luxury resort. A Hammam is a Turkish bath or Turkish bathing ritual, and is a method of bathing the body involving steam and deep cleansing organics and oils, that rejuvenate the skin.
Derived from a culture where the climate is harsh, Hammam rituals use techniques of exfoliation and massage to pamper the body from head to toe. Steam brings about relaxation, increases circulation and eliminates toxins. Exfoliation gently removes dead and flaky skin to reveal a smooth, glowing, full-body complexion. The skin is left rehydrated, with improved elasticity, softness, and nourished with vitamins and minerals.
Hammam rituals also have benefits beyond cleansing the body. This traditional treatment is an opportunity to relax the mind. Experience yourself floating on air and your mind released, as you enjoy each moment of pampering. Hammam rituals at Spa De Marrakech can also be experienced as a couple or with a friend.

In keeping with Marrakech tradition this basic purification treatment of the Hammam uses Beldi black soap, perfumed with eucalyptus.
