Moroccan Rituals

Unleash the purifying and detoxifying secrets of regular authentic Moroccan Hammam and Rhassoul rituals. Rituals are completed with a refreshing glass of Moroccan tea.

Cleansing & Purifying

Authentic ritual performed by a Tellak who applies Savon Noir, traditional cleansing soap made from crushed olives & olive oil, infused with Eucalyptus. Provides antibacterial & antiseptic properties to cleanse pores before exfoliation with a Kessa glove. Leaves skin hydrated & soft.

Self-administered treatment
An age old beautifying remedy, Rhassoul historically means ‘a substance that cleanses’. An exotic, purifying & detoxifying ritual using lava clay sourced from the Atlas Mountains in Morocco with unique properties to draw out toxins & impurities in skin. Upon entering the heated chamber, Rhassoul mud is applied to the body and face (and hair). Steam is interjected into the chamber to allow the mud to soften and be rubbed over the body. The bather relaxes in the heat while the active properties of the mud work. To complete the ritual a shower washes the mud away.

Salt Infused Steam
The Salt Infused Steam Room is a humid chamber that mimics the benefits of the sea air. Salt helps the healing process of a variety of skin & respiratory conditions.

The Tepidarium is a lukewarm lounging area to unwind and take light refreshment.

Benefits & Origins

Combine your choice of ritual with a Hammam to cleanse and exfoliate the skin leaving it hydrated and soft, a Rhassoul to draw out toxins and impurities or Salt Infused Steam to benefit respiratory conditions and soothe weary aching bodies.

Ideally followed by a massage with oil for relaxation & regeneration or as part of a detox or regular maintenance programme. Perfect to prepare your skin before honeymoon or holiday.

The Hammam is an ancient and time honoured institution of cleansing and bathing with roots in Roman and Arab cultures dating back to 600 AD. Originally for men only to gather and socialise, women were only allowed to use after an illness or after they had given birth. Eventually, the men opened the pleasures of the Hammam to women who, before then, had virtually no other opportunity to socialise with anyone outside the home. It wasn’t long before the ‘privilege’ became a ‘right.’

A Turkish Bath differs from a Moroccan Hammam as The Turkish Bath is heated by steam and a foaming soap is used.
