SPA | MOROCCAN LUXURY AT THE SPA ROYAL MANSOUR IN MARRAKECH

The vibrant energy and culture of Marrakech is enough to attract millions of visitors to Morocco annually. For those in search of a little R&R while exploring such an exciting and bustling city, the Spa Royal Mansour welcomes guests to experience Moroccan luxury in the form of curated spa treatments, chic spa cuisine, and immaculate surroundings.

In the last two years, the Spa Royal Mansour has been awarded with two prestigious awards – The Gala Spa Award in 2016, and the Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Travel Award in 2017. As a destination in itself, the spa’s entrance consists of citrus groves and the scent of flowers wafting through the air. Once inside, the magnificent white-iron bird cage atrium bathed in natural day light welcomes you with an array of soft colored sofas. The hammam, the treatment rooms, and the Spa restaurant ("La Table du Spa") are scattered carefully, while an indoor heated pool spreads like a lagoon in an old world orangery greenhouse.

With its skilled team of experts and a commitment to health and beauty, the Spa Royal Mansour embodies pure Moroccan traditions. Every guest is invited to enjoy an exceptional level of wellness in an enchantingly luminous and peaceful setting. Tailormade treatments represent the epitome of Moroccan luxury with various skin treatments, body wraps, massages and more. The Atlas Mountains provide purifying ghassoul clay for the dynamic energizing wrap. Roses from the Kalaat Megouna valley are essential for the relaxing regenerating wrap. And saffron, historically grown at Talouine, is a key ingredient in the gourmet glow wrap. The personalization of these hammam treatments represents a return to Morocco’s roots, and each symbolizes a journey into the heart of Morocco.

To emphasize your day of pampering, multi starred Chef Alleno presents a healthy and refreshing menu at La Table du Spa, served in a cozy wood paneled dining room. The menu includes dishes like quinoa with vegetables and shrimp; a heritage tomato creation; vegetable minestrone; couscous with seven vegetables; or cow’s milk berretta with cherry tomatoes and basil. Care for a cup of tea? Select a flavor from the tea dresser drawer, offering a large variety of herbal and cleansing blends.

Should you wish to enjoy Morocco’s balmy climate, the Spa Gardens is the perfect place to fully take in your surroundings and experience a moment serenity after your spa day.
