Best Spas for Hammams in Marrakech, Morocco

If you really want to become one with Moroccan residents, it’s a good idea to get in tune with their rituals. With that said, visiting a hammam is an ancient ritual that’s integral to the Moroccan lifestyle as tagine and mint tea. This is a perfect way to get a deeper understanding of the culture and people. Moreover, hammams are a weekly tradition amongst many Moroccans. The hammam is popular because water is a very important symbol of purification and cleanliness in Islam. And Islam is the dominant religion practised in Morocco. But without further ado, take a breath and relax as we visit the best hammams in Morocco.

What is a Hammam?

Essentially, a hammam treatment is a relaxing and cleansing Moroccan ritual that is centuries old. The treatment uses hot steam in an enclosed room to encourage a deep cleanse of the skin. However, it should not be confused with a thermal spa which uses thermal waters. Traditionally, many hammam treatments are done with vitamin E-rich, olive-based soap. This kind of soap is known for nourishing and exfoliating the skin.

Furthermore, a hammam includes the use of rhassoul clay: an antibacterial mineral that effectively removes toxins from the body. Rhassoul clay also reduces sebum and tightens your pores. Overall, a hammam is super relaxing and wonderful for the skin.

Now that you know what hammam treatments are, let’s have a look at where you can experience this calming treatment in Marrakech, Morocco.
