We had the cheapest treatment but it was absolutely relaxing!
The Les Bains de Azahara were the second spa that we went to and we had the same treatment as before but it was half price of what we had payed at the other spa.
Comparison and description:
We didn't get free slippers and underwear. (So, bring a second slip! Shoes are optional. You don't need them.)
My boyfriend and I had a private hammam and the lady who did the treatment was amazing! Instead of using a water jet she scooped water on us. That was so much more relaxing! The room was very nice and traditionally decorated. The srubbing was really intense. In the more expensive spa it was more relaxing - but only because she did hardly scrub half of my body. In this spa the lady scrubbed every bit and was very accurat. I loved it, although it makes your skin burn. :-)
Before standing up we got a bucket with cool water and rose peddals to put our feet into. That way my blood circulation was stimulated and I didn't have any problems when I left the room. (I nearly fainted in the other spa.)
We were brought to a relaxation area. and got some tea. After a couple of minutes two younger woman came to give us a foot massage which is included. It was really relaxing and I liked the fact that they treated my boyfriend and me at the same time. Although the girls were chatting while doing the massage, I didn't feel disturbed. I think it was more authentic that way.
The only negative things:
- There was no hair dryer, although they had a shower in the private changing rooms. I was glad, our hotel was only about 100 m from the spa.
- You could here the people and cars on the street while being in the spa. It wasn't very loud, but I which, they had a door to seperate the reception an dhallway from the other parts of the spa to keep the noise out.
