The city’s other completely female-free spa, The Lounge, is located in a smart villa in Khalidiyah that is completely devoted to the fine art of male grooming. There’s a rather VIP vibe and a comprehensive list of spa and salon services, with hamam treatments a specialty.
The Lounge gives you all sorts of options for a therapeutic hour or so, whatever kind of massage you’re in the mood for. Busy gents can pop in for the 30-minute relaxing massage, while those who want to take their time unwinding should book in for the spa’s eponymous massage –The Lounge – which is an intensive 90-minute session. Plenty more options are available, and Time Out readers get a generous 20 per cent of all the spa’s services until the end of September. Just bring your copy when you visit.
Fancy something a little bit different? Try the traditional Moroccan Bath, which begins with a therapist rubbing Moroccan Black cleansing soap all over your body, then applying a scalp mask. The hamam room then fills with steam and allows the skin to soften for a final exfoliating scrub so you’re left squeaky clean .
