Best Hammam + Massage Experiences.

I have been Morocco five times but yet to find a hamman in Marrakech that really did hit the nail on the head. I did like Hammam Ziani but found the men too close for comfort at times! Would anybody like to shed light on places where there are highly skilled masseuses? Some of my friends that i am travelling with this time are quite touchy on masseurs and would prefer female therapists even though this would go against hammam tradition. Any light shed on this would be appreciated. Iv got on Les Bain D'Azahara on my list vist and wanted other options.

Trouble is, you're going to tourist spas. Try the local hammams.

If your male friends want female masseuses you'll have to stick to the tourist spa type places and miss the real hammam experience. Hammam de la Rose and Les bains de Marrakech are two very popular spas.

I went to les bains on my recent trip to morocco. The massage was a let down. I'm used to Thai massages and the moroccon version of a massage was just the lady rubbing her palms on my body.

it's better to use the touristy one as shimmin has suggested, the real moroccan one is not what you might like, might be a bit hot and busy, and the massure can rub your body roughly, make your own experience in this side of your trip and enjoy the real morocco on other sides, like culture, living the real morocco, like cuisine hidden location..

have fun.
