If you live in North Africa, the hammam is an integral part of your routine. And if you’re in the Levant or the Khaleej—spas are an essential.
And whether it’s the UAE, Morocco, or Jordan your options are endless, and picking the right spa to cater to your needs unfortunately can be a daunting task. But we’ve got you sorted. These are some of our favourites in the region.
