“Fantastic hidden spa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Great spa and great service! I went in a group for my Auntie's birthday and we all had the Hammam plus massage, which was incredibly relaxing. The owner's parents were visiting and I spoke to them in French - very lovely! They also organised a birthday cake for my Auntie with all the staff coming out to sing Happy Birthday. Very accommodating and above all, a really relaxing day! I will definitely visit this spa again!

Merci pour votre avis très sympathique. Nous conservons un souvenir précis et enthousiaste des moments passés ensemble autour d'un gateau d'anniversaire pour votre tante où toutes nos masseuses ont chanté en son honneur les traditionnels "youyou" marocains. Nous espérons peut-être vous revoir un jour dans notre spa ?
Bien amicalement,
Damienne maman de Florent le propriétaire

“Experience a little Moroccan magic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We can only add our voice to the chorus of approval for this gem of a hammam in the heart of Marrakech. The local children clearly are used to tourists making their way to the spa as they called out the number of the house as we approached in case we were not sure which door to knock. The welcome was warm and friendly and with a quick explanation of what to expect, we got started. Refreshments first and a chance to choose which scent for massage and bath, then a lovely foot massage to start the ritual. Washed with savon noir, steamed, scrubbed till pink and tingly then wrapped for the rassoul, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Became so relaxed, even dozed off a couple of times as the relaxing experience took effect. The massage was sublime and we were treated to refreshing tea and pastries as a final treat at the end of a wonderful experience. Would I recommend Mythic Oriental Spa? In a heartbeat. Very reasonable compared to London prices and delivered with warmth and care by the lovely staff. Hubby had never tried anything like this before, so he was well impressed. I've done a fair few spas and Mythic Oriental is way up there with the very best in my opinion. Felt so much better for the experience. Highly Recommended!

“Couples Package”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

After a full day at Faim d'Epices, we were shuttled to Mythic Oriental Spa and this definitely ended the day on a perfect note. Aside from being blown away by the decor, friendly staff, and elegance of the spa, the services were fantastic. You are provided with everything you need and are relaxed throughout. Our session included a selection of scented oils for the massage and bath salts. We were then lead to a room contaning two bathtubs where we soaked for 30 minutes in relaxation. Afterwards we had a cleansing, scrub, hamman, wrap and finally the massage. At the end we were served mint tea and then finished. Absolutely amazing experience and would love to go back.

“Hamman experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Wife visited this spa - this is what she said; I chose Mythic Oriental Spa following reading the positive reviews on trip advisor. This was the first time I had been to a spa in Marrakech, but had previous experience of others in Thailand, Vietnam and the UK of course. It was a bit of a risk as, rather than go with my husband, I took my 66 year old mom instead, leaving my husband to look after our two children (by the way, I don't think there would be anywhere for someone to sit and wait for you if they were not also having a spa session). We didn't know what to expect at the spa other than what I had read on trip advisor. I had pre-booked in the UK via email, and had received a prompt response in English and confirmation of our booking. The spa would have been difficult to find on our own, but we were guided by a teenage Boy (followed by his friends, obviously checking we were going to hand out money). For those yet to visit, from the square, where you get dropped off by a taxi, take the alley off which has a no entry sign for cars, walk slightly up hill, within just a few minutes, you will see a small general " shop" on your left, and opposite a turning to the right, the wall has a bold sign pointing the way to the spa; follow the alleyway down and round to the left, then right, the only route you can take if I remember correctly, the spa is on the corner before the alleyway turns again sharply to the left. As the other reviews say, don't let the alleyways and outside worry you, once you get into the spa, it is a different world! The girls were lovely, and spoke enough English to make it easy. We really enjoyed the experience - once I got over sitting next to my mom in nothing but a paper triangle thong! Not an experience to go through if you are at all body conscious! Not that the girls take the slightest bit of notice. You may well end up with wet hair (you can wash your hair if you need, but don't think there is an opportunity or facility to dry it), also, if you are like me and can't face the world without your lippy, take everything you need with you. Overall, I would certainly go again. Can't say how this compares to any other spa in Marrakesh, but certainly was as good as others I have been to.
