While staying in the luxurious Palais Amani in the old town medina of Fez, Morocco we were able to relax and enjoy a Royal Hammam Experience. Though this video doesn’t capture the full event, it does give you a sense of what this spa-like experience is all about.
Though this was a fun and cultural experience for us, traditionally, Moroccans (perhaps countrywide, but certainly in Fes) visit a hammam on a weekly basis. We even learned that the men that work in the tanneries are provided daily access to a hammam by the government. We really enjoyed the experience and would recommend making the Royal Hammam Experience part of your activities while visiting Palais Amani.
It should be noted that public hammams are traditionally a single-sex experience. Palais Amani’s Hammam provides a private, romantic, candlelit ambiance where couples can experience the event together. Not knowing what to expect, this was perfect for us!
