Après les travaux de restauration, il est devenu le premier hammam marocain chauffé par énergie thermo solaire. A l’intérieur, les méthodes les plus typiques de l’art du bain au Maroc vous seront proposées (relaxation, massage, etc.…) selon la thérapie Gnaoua.

“Best Experience in Essaouria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

I asked a local what hammam to visit and they recommended Lalla Mira. For 180dhs, I got 3 fabulous 30 minute treatments (it actually took 2 hours). If you research typical hammams so that you know what to expect, you'll be very pleased with this one. It was beautifully decorated but not overdone, clean and RELAXING. I was scrubbed down with black soap, got a body mask and was then massaged with argan oil. Not bad for $20.

“Good for women, bad for men”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

The interior of this Hammam is really beautiful, but the temperature was actually quite cold for a Hammam. My boyfriend and I went for the full treatment (one hour and a half for 1800 drh). My treatment was okay, the girls working there really did their best to keep us satisfied, but the Hammam - which is cosy but small - was too full. Average massage. My boyfriend's experience was quite disappointing, since five clients were being treated by one single person at the same time, who could only devote about 20 minutes to each client (5' body scrub and 15' massage instead of half an hour for each treatment ). Bad massage. The price for the whole treatment is of course probably the best in Essaouira, but with such a service... do you really want to spend 1800 drhs on a bad experience? I would definitely recommend a public Hammam for men.

“Small hamam, don't think Turkey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

My wife and I tried the hamam experience at the Lalla Mira because it claimed to be the oldest in Essaouira, it was reasonably priced, and it uses solar power to heat the water. The facility is quite small not like the big public baths I experienced in Turkey. Consequently, the social aspect of the bath was completely lacking. The lights were dingy, and the massage was done on the floor and was not especially enjoyable.

All in all, I would give this place a pass.
