Hammam El Basha, Marrakesh Reviews
The staff at Riad Zalia recommended this hamman . It is a very few minutes walk from the riad and I went alone . I am an older woman but was new to the hamman experience. All staff were extremely courteous and one spoke good English explaining exactly what to do. The hamman was clean and well decorated, the bathrobes were pristine . The scrub was carried out thoroughly, the room was delightfully warm and the water hot. The darkness allowed perfect relaxation. The foot massage was initially gentle but became much more rigorous and extended to my full body. As good as any massage anywhere and better than most. I'm still not sure whether next time I would forego the pleasure of the head massage just to avoid oils on newly shampooed hair. I enjoyed the friendly company in the relaxation room with tea and biscuits. I paid for the Hamman Rose , it lasted 90 minutes and was very good value.
Most amazing massage ever. Probably not the most instagram worthy Hammam in all of Marrakech, but the service and experience was impeccable.
We have booked for the Tour of Morocco, a package with Hammam and Massage. Hammam has been done not quite good, with soap and oil distributed by a woman with lots of rush. Indeed the massage experience was very great in all of its parts, although it did not last one hour. Very good indeed!
Nice experience, the Hammam offers a wide variety of packages and services. They have traditional Hammam which is a sauna and body scrub type service, where a lady scrubs all the dead skin and applies argan oils and creams afterwards. It feels great and you feel so relaxed afterwards. My only problems was with the massage side of the experience, the ladies that worked on me was very soft and even when asking for a heavy touch it was still quite soft.
Nothing special (the 3 stars is purely for the hammam itself as the massage receives no stars). We came here based on the high reviews and opted for the hammam and massage packaged which isn't cheap at 900 MAD each. We were whisked into the hammam section as a couple and the scrub was lovely however we were just left sitting in the hot room for too long at a time. However, the hammam was the best part of this experience. We were then whisked to our couples massage and it was nothing special at all. The ladies were way too soft, at times it felt like she was just brushing the skin and couldn't be bothered to put in effort. She kept yawning (which is completely fine as I'm sure they work long hours) however I would appreciate it if they put in more effort into the massage especially after I asked her politely to please use a bit more force. Afterwards I expected to be lead into a sitting area to enjoy some mint tea before getting changed however we were rushed into the change rooms and prompted to leave. For the price we paid, I expected more service and a better experience so I would highly recommend to go elsewhere.
