There are many great hotels in Marrakech, but for a really exceptional spa treatment, the Kenzi Menara Palace is unbeatable. Located just south of the city centre and close to the Agdal Gardens and airport, the hotel is ideally located for visitors wanting to explore the city without being caught up in the hustle and bustle of downtown. The Spa by Terrake is a truly unique feature of the hotel. It covers 1,800 sq m of relaxation space, where guests can enjoy oriental care such as scrubs, massages and a Turkish Bath, or treatments using Terrake’s own brand wellness products.
Among the best choices are four ritual treatments guests can undertake for a truly exceptional experience. The Liana Contour ritual is a body refining treatment, where the spicy plant is wrapped around the guest’s body to refine and sculpt the figure, while the Breath of Pure Air ritual combines a range of gentle and purifying scents using mountain herbs, which drain toxins out of the body, as well as a series of hot and cold sensations. Undertaking the Marina Wave Ritual might sound like something to do on a boat, but in fact it is about simply having the sensation of a wave rolling across one’s skin as it is saturated with moisture to make it soft and supple.
The other great treatment to try is the Body Antistress and Relaxation Ritual. This uses immersion in water filled with a myriad of herbs and red jasper, which has been heavily polished before being laid on your body to leave it relaxed and eased into place. All this takes place in a hotel that is already an outstanding one by any standards. The rooms are decorated in tasteful browns and beiges, with maroon and orange furniture, lots of space and great comfort, with widescreen televisions featuring over 100 channels, broadband internet and air conditioning.
Another great feature is the dining, with three restaurants, serving French, Spanish and Moroccan cuisine respectively. So whatever spa treatment you choose, you can be sure of a wonderful stay in an exceptional hotel.
