Concierge.com's insider take:
Les Bains de Marrakesh is an elegant spa center, occupying one half of an old townhouse in the southern Kasbah quarter of the Medina. A full range of treatments, from water massage to shiatsu, plus gommage (loofah scrub) and steam cleaning in a traditional hammam, are on offer. Figure on spending about $70 for a 45-minute gommage plus an hourlong massage. Unlike some other local hammamswhich we don't recommend visiting unless in the company of a Moroccan who knows the placeLes Bains de Marrakesh is very Westernized and the staff guides the uninitiated through the process (steam, cold-water rinse, perhaps more steam, another rinse before the gommage; then a massage; and lots of time to cool down with a glass of mint tea). Reservationsas far in advance as possibleare a must.
Open daily 9 am to 8 pm. By appointment only.
