The Hammam Signature Ritual

Inspired by traditional Turkish and Moorish architecture, this spa casita features arched portals, high vaulted ceilings, a private grotto and accents of hand-painted ceramic tile and marble. Treatments follow a five-step detox and cleansing regiment including steam, massage, exfoliation, soaping and relaxation.

The Heat
Wearing a linen head wrap and body tunic, enter a Harara hot room where aches, pains, fatigue, and physical and spiritual impurities are driven out of your tired body.

Massage
Once the body is relaxed, it's time for a vigorous Turkish massage featuring stretching, twisting, kneading, pulling and pummeling. Afterwards, retreat into a solitary nook to rest and recover.

The Peeling (Exfoliation)
After recuperating, return to the treatment room where your therapist will remove dead and loose skin with help of a coarse Kese glove, paying special attention to the soles of the feet.

The Soaping
The entire body is soaped and rinsed by pouring a basin full of water over the head one cup at a time. From there, enjoy another rest period in the garden pool area.

Relaxation
The last step is a massage and facial mask infused with Argan oil, leaving the skin soft and nourished.

The Traditional Moroccan Signature Hammam Ritual

3 1/2 HOURS*

Duration


180-minute treatment time and 30 minutes of refreshments and relaxation.

In creating Mukul’s Hammam, which means “spreader of warmth” in Arabic, we studied the sensual history of the Middle East and its ancestral beauty rituals. Guests walking into the Hammam will feel as if they are walking back in time as they enter the spacious and ornate sanctuary, a quiet retreat in an atmosphere of half-light, seclusion and heat. Silence is an integral part of the cleansing process and helps the body and spirit liberate itself from excess and the superfluous. Guests come out of the Hammam session with a glow of sublime peace and euphoria.

The Traditional Hammam Ritual is simple, but it involves several steps to cleanse and help you relax. First, your body is seasoned with heat while lying on the “mother stone”. Once your body and limbs are relaxed, you are stretched by your therapist to take away aches and pains. As one of the world’s most ancient traditions, a black-soap massage followed by a cascading-water rinse prepares your skin for the scrub using the traditional Kessa mitt which leaves your skin soft and free of accumulated toxins and impurities. After another rinse, a Ghassoul mask of Moroccan volcanic clay is applied to the body, face and hair. After the Ghassoul has been washed off, you are enveloped by a sensual and refreshing mist of floral rose water. The last step of this centuries-old practice of purification is a relaxing massage using pure argan oil – Morocco’s precious elixir of youth.

*Sessions include a “calm time” as nurturing as the treatments themselves.

Enjoy the difference.
