I usually don’t write reviews but when you find a gem like the Miraj Hammam Spa at the Shangri La Hotel, you have to spread the word! This place is the epitome of luxury. Here’s why:
Their signature hammam steam room is a wonderful way to get into the “zone” before another service like a massage or facial. Most spas only have a steam room or sauna but the “hammam” is a different experience entirely. It’s a high intensity steam room that’s intended to cleanse and de-stress. I’ve done it a few times and can attest to the fact that it definitely does just that. They have 2 private steam rooms to cater to different needs. A small one for personal use (or a couples retreat!) and a larger one that’s perfect for bigger groups.
The standout part of the manicure and pedicure for me is definitely the black Moroccan soap scrub and exfoliation. It’s infused with eucalyptus so it smells exquisite and leaves your skin feeling super soft. The facials are equally fantastic. The best facials I’ve ever had have always been from the ladies at Miraj Hammam – they’re incredibly skilled and they use the exceptional Caudalie Paris products which are divine. Seriously – you won’t get a better facial anywhere else. They’re amazing.
The atmosphere is one of my favourite things about this place. They’ve gone for the whole “Moroccan” thing, and they’ve done it quite well. Dim lighting and marble abound, just setting foot in this place makes you feel relaxed and pampered. The lounge is the perfect oasis to unwind after your treatment. It’s made up of cozy cabanas full of plush pillows and blankets and is the perfect place to bask in that warm and ‘glowey’ high you get after a massage or facial (you know the one I mean!). In keeping with their whole Middle Eastern theme, while you’re relaxing after your treatment, the spa girls serve you Moroccan style tea and Baklava. Yes, Baklava. Honestly, could you think of anything better after being pampered during a massage or a facial? Well done ladies. Well done.
A luxury spa would be nothing without luxury service and these guys have it nailed. Though not at all pretentious, the staff pampers you through your entire visit. They know exactly how to make you feel welcome and comfortable and they certainly spare no luxury.
I know most reviews should have a “the only bad thing was….” part, but I really don’t have a single negative thing to say. All my visits to the Miraj Hammam Spa have been perfection. This place is hands down my fave spa in the city (and I’ve been to many. Too many maybe!) If you haven’t gone, you need to immediately! You won’t regret it. But you will be heartbroken when it’s over.
