Pretty good hammam with great massage

The steam area was good, although as it was small, you were restricted to only one aroma..not a big deal I guess. The gommage was gooooodd...so tough, not sure if I have any skin... read more

Step through the wrought iron doors of Miraj and embark on an exotic voyage without traveling. The lovely owner Surinder has brought the best of old world hammams in the Middle East and Paris to S. Granville: adding a touch of modernism for the utmost in comfort and enjoyment. Business suits and street wear are traded for the dress du... More

I've visited Hamm am's in Morocco and Turkey, both were such calming, relaxing and cleansing experiences. I suppose being in a country whose culture created this wonderful treatment makes the whole experience really worthwhile as they really know how to deliver a great practice In Vancouver the Miraj is fine but cannot be compared to a true Hamm am, everything...

I've been to many spas and even lived in Turkey for a while. My experience here was spectacular. If you have tender skin, you might want to ask for the exfoliation to be a little more gentle. The hammam steam was so pleasant...great to be able to control the steam yourself and to find the hotter and colder parts of... More

This "hammam" was a delight. Of course, not even close to the ones in Turkey, but nevertheless an amazing experience. Relaxing, well designed and welcoming. Take time to chill afterwards. Will go back for sure.

My partner and I received a hammam gommage for us both as a gift. It was so relaxing and we felt so pampered getting massaged, steamed and oiled up. We also got tea and a sweet in very comfortable seats. Such a treat and the staff were lovely.

If you are looking for a fully relaxed spa experience but are limited on time, this is the place to go. I came here with a travelzoo voucher and got the Hammam & Gommage with 45 Minute Massage experience. At first, you're placed in a steam room where you sit and relax for 15-20 minutes. The room is hot but... More

My husband and I went to Miraj as a birthday activity. Would have appreciated being told beforehand how to control the steam because the room got too hot and I had to take a break. The steam room was very nice and pleasant-smelling. The scrub-down felt great. We also had massages that were very relaxing. The oils they used felt... More

I had the pleasure of attending the Miraj Hamman Spa, I honestly almost forgot what country I was in. It's hard to believe this spa is located on busy Granville street when it is so tranquil inside. I was a little nervous about getting scrubbed down 'au naturel', but Darlene put me completely at ease. It was like I had... More

I am always a bit surprised to see reviews that are not positive about the Miraj. This is one of the first hammams in Canada and is very similar to the experience you will have in a hammam in Paris, North Africa, Turkey or the Middle East. The difference I have found is the personal focus on you by the... More
