Marrakech is best known for its historic medina and souks filled with spices, colorful textiles, and leather goods. The tourist-packed streets can sometimes be more of a source of stress than pleasure, but luckily, the city is also filled with luxurious spas to offer visitors a respite from the hustle and bustle. After a busy day at the markets, indulge in a moment of peace at one of Marrakech’s most outstanding spas.
Le Spa at Four Seasons Resort Marrakech
Inspired by Middle Eastern traditions and contemporary treatments, Le Spa offers salon services, facials, massages, and signature treatments. The sumptuous hammam also offers teen and kids' treatments specifically designed to introduce a younger generation to the benefits of relaxation and proper skin care. Le Spa has two suites located within their spa pavilion, each with its own private garden, Watsu pool, used for aquatic bodywork and passive aquatic therapy, and Rhasou, a clay mineral found in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco used in bath rituals to clean the body. The use of the spa pavilion is available for half- or full-day spa experiences.
