Individual and group treatments are offered beneath a stunning mosaic stained-glass ceiling, with a menu full of expert treatments to choose from. Opt for the Hammam Rose Ritual, where your senses are enveloped with the soothing aroma of rose and mint while enjoying a pure clay body wrap to rejuvenate dehydrated skin. It's followed by a gentle honey face mask, and a tension-relieving head and body massage.
