When I first had the idea to create The Spa in Dolphin Square, I wanted to bring my Moroccan experience to London, but needed to adapt it for a Western market in a busy urban environment. I took what was important to me living in London and fused it with the traditions I had observed in Marrakech.
I love tradition but in my opinion, it often only works in the environment where it was created. Factors such as climate and natural daylight all influence the outcome of the experience. Although The Spa has a strong Moroccan influence, we made a conscious decision to mix ancient spa rituals with modern touches, such as express treatments and Wi-Fi, to suit needs of the clients it would service.
