Wanting to experience a Hammam while in Morocco?
There are dozens of hammams hidden around the medina (all of varying quality) - you just need to be able to read arabic to find them. Ha! Here is where we can take that hassle away. You tell us whether you are after a local, luxury or private couples hammam and we will tell you the best ones in Chefchaouen and handle the booking for you. You will just need to turn up and enjoy the “pampering” (read scrubbing).
If you are a little nervous, we are more than happy to meet you, show you to the hammam and introduce you to the ladies so that you are comfortable and all organised for your Hammam.
A scrub at a local hammam is like nothing else. Prepare to be in a basic concrete, tiled, sauna like room with other local women. Busiest on weekends, women use hammams to catch up and gossip so be prepared for a lot of chatting, laughter and scrubbing. It is certainly an experience! Men, I can’t say I’ve experienced yours but from guest experiences… it’s a little eye opening!
After stripping down to your underwear, you will be taken into the hammam by a lovely hammam lady who will instruct you where to sit. She will then cover you with hot water, lather you in hammam soap and scrub you down, hard! After washing your hair and giving you a light massage, you will come out feeling as soft as a baby and a little lighter!
All you need to bring is your towel, a scrubbing mit, flip flops and a change of underwear.
Time: Men: 6am-12pm & 8pm-10pm; Women: 2pm-6pm.
Price: 100dh (plus 20dh+ tip money for your hammam lady)
If you are wanting more of a private spa treatment then a luxury hammam is for you!
Experience a traditional hammam scrubbing with natural moroccan cosmetic clay and hammam soap in a beautiful luxury setting.
Additional services including massage, facial and feet treatments can be added or enjoy a relaxing swim in a pool afterwards followed by a fresh juice or hot mint tea.
Time: 12pm onwards
Price: Approx 300dh for hammam. Price confirmed on inquiry.
Very few places in Morocco allow for couples to have a hammam together. If you are after a couples hammam there are two options. Enjoy a luxury hammam together or hire out a local hammam room.
If hiring a local hammam room, you will need to bring all your own soap, clay, scrubbing mits and shampoo and you will need to scrub each other. There will not be a person to assist.
Time: Luxury hammam: 12pm onwards; Local hammam: 8pm onwards
Price: Provided on inquiry
