Hammam & Massage in Marrakech

Many people hear about “Hammam” and “Hammam Marrakech“, but most folks don’t really know what others are talking about exactly. Basically a Hammam is the Moroccan version of the Turkish Bath, a place to relax, treat your body and clean your skin through some natural products, hot water and hot steam.

The biggest difference between a Hammam in Morocco and the Turkish bath is that in Morocco rooms are not usually heated with steam, but heated through hot water taps and heated floors (which will eventually create some steam also). Most normal hammams in Marrakech will be places where people go to deep clean their body and spend some time socializing with friends (specially women hammams).

In Marrakech you can also find some quality hammams where you can enjoy a full body treatment, massage, skin cleansing and exfoliation with natural soaps and oils which leave you with beautiful skin and body.

The hammam health process is combined with ancient traditional beauty rites using techniques such as soft soap body scrub and purified clay body poultice. Bath-salts and fumes can be of cedar wood, orange blossom, rose petals and other herbs found in Morocco.

Les Bains de Marrakech is one of the most known places. There, couples can go to Hammam together in a private room. You can also choose between different kinds of massage that are available. There are treatments that may last from 30 minutes to a whole day.
Other recommended places for massages or Hammam: Hammam Dar el-Bacha, Hammam Bab Doukkala. Saint Tropez, Hammam Ziani and Les Bains de Kabira, etc.
