Begin your holiday with the ancient rite which is a traditional hammam. Water is so important in Morocco and a hammam is normally taken at the end of the week before Friday prayers. This is an excellent way to start your holiday and scrub away impurities of the body and allowing deep relaxation.
The skin is one of our biggest organs. The hammam not only cleans you but the ritual is an active way of washing away the old before beginning the new. It begins with the warmth and relaxation of the marble and tadelakt, as you unwind and let go. Next black soap made from olive oil is applied to your body, you are then scrubbed by our hammam lady with the local kiss or mitt. This detox clears all the debris and pollution from your pores and gets the blood rushing to your skin. Doused with warm water and left with beautifully soft skin, Rhassoul mineral rich mud mixed with Argan oil or eucalyptus for sore muscles and clearing is then smoothed over your body to nourish and hydrate your skin. Ending with a rinse of orange blossom body wash. A nourishing hair treatment can also be requested.
Our massage ladies, Touria and Samira are expert massage therapists, with our fair trade organic Argan oil, rich in vitamin E sourced in Tiznit from a ladies co-operative . Our superb team are miracle workers at relaxing, unwinding, unknotting your body with their deep tissue work. Following this lymphatic cleanse you are encouraged to relax further whilst sipping a cooling lemon, mint and honey spritz prepared fresh by our chef.
Water is an important feature of Morocco. There’s nothing nicer than a rest in the cool pool at Zamzam with your book. Zamzam is the holy water (spring) initiated by the Angel Gabriel. This holy spring is part of the Haj or pilgrimage to Mecca.
