Made an appointment here for a body scrub and a massage. My first time getting a spa treatment and they really put me at ease with the experience. Would recommend this experience for all travelers, especially those traveling as a couple.

We were fetched from out road and escorted to the spa. Absolutely beautiful riad. The hamam and massage costs 60€ and is followed with free drinks and cookies. Between the two treatments you receive nuts, raisins and water after a refreshing shower. The hamam is beautiful, and is not unbearably hot like the others I have been to. The scrub... More

Thoroughly recommend Riad Laroussa for the hammam experience. It's so relaxing, the women giving the scrub and then the massage are absolutely lovely. I could have stayed there all afternoon. I'd been to a hammam in Marrakech a few years earlier but this was way better. I went with a friend and we had the treatments together - so much... More

I've now stayed at Riad Laaroussa twice and my partner three times. It is outstanding: relaxed, beautiful, stylish, and good value. Of the many hotels I stay in each year it is one of the few I would want to go back to again and again and would heartily recommend to friends or colleagues. Cathy and Fred, the owners, have... More

Riad Laarousse is where I went for my first hammam (I opted for a private one- mostly because I wanted more individualized attention) and it was heavenly. You are asked to strip to your underwear (no bra) and then taken to a steam room with dark blue plaster and slight window openings up high where you lie on a hot... More

A second Hammam in a week but no regrets. We loved that the history of this hammam and the women who scrubbed and massaged us could not have been more pleasant. We left with soft skin and a smile on our face. We highly recommend treating yourself to this hammam.

My partner and I went to the Spa at Riad Laaroussa at the start of our trip in Morocco. The porter came and collected us from our Riad so we didn't get lost, which was much appreciated. However, as soon as we arrived in to the Riad we were ushered straight in to the spa and it wasn't really clear... More

Dear guest, Thank you for sharing your experience with Spa Laaroussa. It is a very polite way to express such disagreement. I apologize sincerely as things shouldn’t have gone this way. As you mention, attention to details is a key issue and our therapists should have let you know what was supposed to happen when you got in. Our Spa... More

The best thing we did during our week in Morocco. Incredibly relaxing and a really romantic way to spend a couple of hours out of the hustle and bustle of the medina. Had a massage and hammam with my partner for 60 euro each, and (although we were on a tight budget) it really was worth every penny. Can't wait... More

We read all sorts of reviews while staying in Fez, to try to help us find our way around what the old city has to offer. We went to a public hammam which was an experience, although quite brutal (the men's one I went to left me with cuts and grazes, and the women's one my partner went to left... More
