recommendations for a good reasonable price spa in Marrakech

I am looking through the recommended spas by trip advisor as I would ideally want to go for a massage but they usually start from 550 dirhams.We travelling on a tight budget. Anyone know any other clean and tidy spas which offer reasonable prices. Maybe some hidden gems that are not listed on tripadvisor

Hi,

Hammam Ziani, sorry not a hidden one but good value.

Local hammams will be a fraction of that price and a *lot* more memorable.

shimmin and Tim offer good advice - a local hammam offers great services including massages. Around 100 dirhams. What area of Marrakech are you staying in Marz11 as somebody may know a hammam close to your accomodation?

The closest local hammam (not a spa) is just inside the ramparts (medina walls) at Bab Doukkala, less than five minutes walk from your hotel.

We are staying near Zone Touristique Agdal, Marrakech 40000. Never been to spa or hamam and certainly cant afford MAD 500 plus per person for hamam and massage...

so what is your suggestion for someone like me ?.. dont know whats a "local hamam" means... but i do want a pleasant experience, but not too tourist one either..

There are no local hammams in the Zone Touristique Agdal, rands2009,

as it is a very modern site, far from walking distance to the medina. However your hotel there may offer spa like facilities. Not traditional ones. For a Moroccan experience I would support the suggestion of shimmin above by reading previously posted remarks and reviews.

PS A hammam is a Moroccan bath house and a hamam is a pigeon. Strange but true!

Ryad Mogador Opera is opposite the theatre royale on Avenue Mohamed VI.

Ryad Mogador Marrakech is at Bab Doukkala.
