The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Find Luxury for Less in Marrakech


4. Insider’s Tip

The Pearl Spa at the Delano offers a refined alternative to traditional hammams.  

Marrakech’s hammams are famous, but rough, scratchy mits and cold water hurled from metal cups can leave you feeling waterlogged and miserable. For a more refined take on the traditional treatment, book an hour-long version ($93) at the Pearl Spa at the Delano, where warm water is applied with even pressure and black soap (made with olive kernels and black paste) is lathered and gently scrubbed away with a goat-hair mitt to remove dead skin before you’re massaged with a moisturizer of honey, rose, and clay.
