“The best budget hammam with private treatments”
Review of Aabla Spa

Aabla Spa
Ranked #52 of 111 Spas & Wellness in Marrakech
Attraction details
Reviewed 24 November 2013

I've been in Aabla Spa 2 times, and the best thing about it is that they do the gommage really well, which is the main reason to go to Moroccan hammam. Hammam cabin both times was not hot, but when I asked them to fix it, they did immediately. This time they even gave me disposable slippers and panties in addition to bathrobe and towel which shows that they care about improving their services.
The impression from massage last time was mixed. It was not bad in general and the girl was trying to do her best, but I was totally naked in a totally dark room, which gave me a weird feeling, and the worst thing was the smell of girl's underarms that I could feel... So I think I wouldn't repeat it again!
The guy fishing for customers for the Spa in the street was really annoying. Followed me all the way to the door even though I told that I know the place already and have an appointment.
I would recommend this Spa for a real hammam experience rather than more expensive and classy places that offer beautiful décor but often low-quality "touristic" treatments (like "Les bains de Marrakech").

Traditional Hammam which we just came across..unusually I had not consulted trip advisor first! We were greeted nicely and taken to a room to change..given robes and slippers ( and paper pants!)..given mint tea and biscuits and then taken to the Hammam where a woman who spoke no English gave 3 of us the Hammam together..so you can't be too shy...she washes you all over with soap and then scrubs you with a strong scouring mit ...all over...including boobs! She taps you to turn over and does the back..then washes your hair and then covers you in a kind of brown mud....then washes it off....I did fell very clean...and feel as though I did experience a truly Moroccon experience.....excellent...everyone should try it once!

We had our first Hammam experience in this lovely and traditional spa, located very close to Jemaa El Fna square.
Initially we did not know what to expect, but the staff were very reassuring and made us feel comfortable all the way through. The lady who applied the Hammam was very experienced and really got stuck in, exfoliating our bodies.
This was followed with a full body massage by a masseuse with a delicate but firm technique.
Mint tea coupled with delicious almond biscuits was served on the top floor sun patio and deck after our massage with no pressure to leave any time soon.
A special thank you to Aziz, who greeted us and made us feel so welcome to his family run business. I have a new friend in Marrakech.
