The reception at the Rituels d’Orient baths is both a select and colourful boutique of natural beauty products and the place that unites the outside world with the magical experience that awaits us as we step through the door. A warm welcome, preferential treatment and the resolution of any doubt will be there to meet you so that you can embark on the experience with serenity, at our urban steam spa.
Intimate and beautiful, the changing rooms at Rituels d’Orient day spa invite us to prepare ourselves for the Turkish baths circuit or for the selected treatments. We have lockers to leave our personal things, in which we’ll discover all the necessary items we need to enter the cabin or for the hamam circuit: a bathrobe, some slippers and a traditional handmade wrap.
The circuit begins in the temperate room, the first and largest area of the Hamam bath, at 37ºC and 80% humidity. Dressed in just a wrap, following a lukewarm shower, we lie or sit on the warm stone benches and begin to relax, while our bodies get used to the steamy air. We can refresh ourselves in the baths with water when our bodies ask us, in the pool, in the shower, or from the carved metal basins.
46 ºC, 100% humidity. In this room, each person freely decides their own rhythm, according to their body’s needs. The body and mind relax among the clouds of steam in the hamam bath, the pores of the skin open, toxins evaporate and tensions disappear…
With our pores open, it’s the ideal moment to receive the traditional eastern treatments of the spa hamam: the eastern scrub, followed by moisturizing wraps, with rhassoul or shea butter. Lying down on superb marble benches, with the murmur of water in the background, we leave ourselves in the hands of a specialist in these millennial techniques, who cleanses our skin with black soap and exfoliates it with a kessa glove. Relaxed and almost sleepy, like a child in the hands of its mother, we complete the process of purifying our bodies and minds.
In inviting cabins with soft light and mystical Eastern music, we receive a face or body massage or beauty treatments, which we have selected according to our tastes and needs of the moment. In combination with the hamam circuit or independently, we lose ourselves in the exquisite wellbeing and beauty rituals of a thousand and one nights at the Rituels d’Orient spa, a place to which we will always long to return.
The perfect ending to our visit to the centre can be found in the relaxation room. The colourful décor of this room makes us feel welcome from the first moment. Sitting or lying down among its multiple, colourful cushions, while we savour a mint tea and an Arabian pastry under candlelight, is an unbeatable culmination to our time in the Arabic bath or in the cabins.
In Rituels d’Orient spa hamam boutique, we exhibit and sell all the products and cosmetics that are used in its various beauty and health treatments, mainly from the exclusive brands: La Sultane de Saba, Tadé and El Papier d’Armènie, all based on the beauty wisdom from generations that came before us.
Shea butter, essential oils, elixirs, clays, gorgeous soaps from Aleppo, or made of olive paste, cosmetics for the face and body… In the store, and under the guidance of our specialized personnel, everything has been prepared so that you can enjoy the benefits of high quality products and cosmetics used by Eastern women, be they for yourself or as a very special gift.
We invite you to travel through the inviting and ethereal world of the Rituels d’Orient bath spa, and to discover, step by step, what constitutes the traditional hamam circuit and the different spaces within it.
