Relaxation might be an understatement when you visit the Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie Paris at the very prestigious Shangri-La Hotel in Toronto!
When you enter the hotel, right away there is a scent of mystery and sensuality in the air. The hotel staff, decor and lighting all suggest a type of atmosphere that relates to a form of luxury and grandness!
The spa itself is not far from that train of thought. The Arabian/Moroccan theme of the Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie Paris is a visual treat in itself. The decor is well thought out, very inviting and the slow beats of the Arabian instrumental music was just the perfect touch!
FW was offered two services:
1- A 30 minute Hammam and Gommage which is a steam & body exfoliation from part of the authentic traditions of the Middle East.
2-A 30 minute Prenatal Massage especially designed for pregnant woman, to relax and rejuvenate.
The Hamman & Gommage was a super relaxing almost detoxing experience that left the skin feeling soft and new. The process was interesting where you sit in an intense steam room for 10 minutes or so till you are transferred to lay and relax on Jerusalem gold marble as you experience an invigorating full body Gommage (exfoliation) using eucalyptus infused black Moroccan soap. The staff was very helpful and detailed 🙂
The Prenatal massage was in the popular Marrakech room with authentic Arabian style detailing in decor, calm colours and soothing lighting. The masseuse was well versed with how to give a prenatal massage and worked according to the demands asked prior to commencing the massage. The difference in this massage and others we have gotten, was that there was attention to detail, more effort put into every zone and it really felt well worth its value!
After the whole process, we are guided to the relaxation room where we were offered warm mint tea and small snacks. It was truly an experience to remember and we highly recommend you to either go with a loved one or book a service for a special someone as it is a unique ambiance and luxury all the way is a treat! And who doesn’t enjoy pampering right?
