Wellness Taken to a New Level at the Award Winning Es Saadi Marrakech Resort
· Winner of Best Luxury Resort Spa of Morocco
· New Spa Suite and new gut and hydro-therapy treatments
· New slow food philosophy throughout
When Es Saadi opened its stunning 3000sqm Palace Spa it brought the best in health and wellness to the heart of Marrakech. Having recently won the Best Luxury Resort Spa of Morocco at the 2016 World Luxury Spa Awards, the spa has taken this offering to the next level with a new Spa Suite, new gut and hydro-therapy treatments, a new slow food philosophy and Yoga Retreats in partnerships with Le Tigre Yoga Club.
Es Saadi fully encompasses mindful wellness throughout, meditate in the gardens surrounded by beautiful trees and plants, enjoy healthy slow food or visit the spa, enjoy a manicure or pedicure in a private salon whilst taking in the views of the city. Designed and built around a 100-year-old eucalyptus tree the spa offers a welcoming and calm respite from the city’s dusty souks. Stretching over three floors the spa is home to the Oriental Thermae, a range of traditional and contemporary treatments and the only Dior Institute outside Paris. The spa also welcomes guests with its marbled Moroccan Hamman’s, natural herb saunas and large hydrotherapy pool.
The new treatments available at the Spa include a new Hydrotherapy Massage, which combines a hydrotherapy system of five pivoting shower heads with a four-hand massage. The effect on the body is immediate, plunging you in to a deep sense of relaxation, whilst awakening the senses through various movements. The therapist’s touch paired with the hydro massage encourages a number of wellbeing benefits, promoting drainage and lymphatic circulation to relax tense muscles, whilst the rain effect tones and purifies the skin. The gut massage is another new treatment on offer at Es Saadi. This type of massage was inspired by Chinese medicine, where the stomach is often referred to as the ‘second brain’. Entirely developed on the idea of circulating vital energy, the massage is an ideal remedy for relieving fatigue, stress, anxiety and digestive issues.
The brand new Spa Suite is the ultimate indulgent spa destination in the privacy of your own capacious suite. Your own Spa Suite features a Moroccan Hamman, hydro massage bath for two, two massage tables and a private changing room. After your treatment relax on the king-size waterbed by the open fireplace, whilst sipping on herbal infusions and tea freshly cut from the garden.
The Oriental Thermae offers a series of hot and cold rooms to purify, detoxify and revitalise the body. The seven different rooms vary by offering a different scent or lighting, as well as temperature. The design is splendid with an Ice Foundation sculpted out of marble and then embellished with zellige mosaics from Fez.
The “ultimate luxury experience for pure beauty” is the philosophy of the Dior Institut, which defines their beauty enhancing experience as similar to that of Haute Couture in the world of fashion. Inspired by Christian Dior, “the architect of design”, the Dior Institut treatments are created, structured and redefined for each woman, step by step, for instant and long-lasting rejuvenating results. The Institute has only two locations in the world, one resides at the Plaza Athenee in Paris, and the other at Es Saadi. An exceptional destination that whisks you away from your daily life, the Dior Institute at Es Saadi offers style in very tranquil and exotic locale. Each Dior treatment follows a certain structure: A one-on-one consultation and an in-depth skin examination with a therapist to ensure effective results. This is followed by a customised back massage which will help the posture of the head and figure. This process accompanies all treatments at the Dior Institut.
New to the resort this winter are Es Saadi’s Yoga Retreat’s in partnership with Paris’ exclusive “Le Tigre Yoga Club”. The retreats are designed to rest, restore and revive. Over the course of three days, guests practice the art of yoga with renowned instructors with a focus on healing body and spirit in one of the most beautiful and tranquil settings in the world. For 2017 the retreats will run from 3rd – 6th February and 24th – 27th March.
When it comes to wellness even the cuisine has been enhanced with the introduction of a slow food philosophy. This food is based on healthy and balanced recipes that are rich in fibre and boost the body using low calorie and low fat ingredients. All the dishes are prepared using local produce from the Marrakech Tensift-Al Haouz area or the coastal cities of Oualidia and Dakhla. As well as the introduction of slow food, the new salad bar, located in the Lagon & Jardin restaurant brings a choice of light and delicious vegetables and herbs grown in the family’s organic vegetable plot. To accompany this delicious cuisine the Juice Bar has 21 different juices to choose from, full of minerals, vitamins and fibres with antioxidant properties.
