good massage!

i hope someone can help me. husband and i will be visiting marrakesh for the first time at the end of september.

i was looking through the hammans and spas and have also read all the posts on the forum on the subject.

a lot of the reviews i read mention that experience was wonderful bu that the massages weren;t so great. i was looking really for us to have something more of a deep tissue or sports massage and of course a relaxing time to boot.

i wonder if anyone had a good experience and can recommend a place.

Avoid the spa type hammams. Expensive, touristy, and not local. For a deep massage try the local ones listed here on TA. You will not be able to do this with your husband: he will need to find his own place.

Hey, we have just returned from another fantastic holiday in Marrakech, we found "Hamman Mille & Une Nuit" 58 Place El Fna - it was in one of the lanes leading off the main square, We had fantastic Hamman and an amazing massage, defiantly deep tissue, Well worth a visit!

Hi,

I know you have read all the relevant posts but just want to remind you about Tqsal which is a traditional Moroccan massage done on the floor of the hammam after you've had the exfoliation and your body is warm. It involves a lot of stretching and bone cracking and is really only suitable for flexible people with no injuries or back problems. It's also at your own risk :-) You can ask for gentle, normal or strong (doux, normale or forte). Not for the faint hearted but a real experience!

Hi,

Local hammams don't have a list as there are many spread through the medina. Your hotel or Riad will recommend the one closest to them.
