This is my first spa review and it really should be my 30th or so! I have been enjoying visits to “the spa” for decades. I have a lot of writing to do to catch up! (Correction, I have reviewed Ste Anne’s and totally forgot – you can check it out here)

Today my other half and I visited Miraj Hammam Spa at the Shangri La  for facials to celebrate the Valentine’s weekend (sure, why not make a weekend of it!) and it was as wonderful as expected (I had very high expectations).

Our couples room

We were greeted in the exotic lobby by smiling attendants who took our boots and coats and led us to the change rooms where we changed in to our robes. Once ready we were taken to our couples room for the most blissful facials I have had (and I have had dozens). My skin is rehydrated and happy, my hands and feet were massaged and I am totally relaxed.

After our facials were were given Moroccan tea, grapes and baklava. If you are looking for a staycation retreat the Miraj Hammam is just perfect. It will be my new place in the city for facials.  I can’t wait to go back to try the Hammam and Gommage and see how it compares to my hammam experience in Istanbul.
