I was delighted to return to Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie last week in Toronto for some much needed pampering after having been under the weather for a few days.

I always enjoy visiting this spa at the Shangri-La Hotel because it is incredibly luxurious. Every treatment I’ve ever had there has been of utmost quality and the service is always outstanding.

On this particular visit, I tried my first ever Hammam & Gommage. This 30-minute treatment starts off with 15 minutes of stress relief and relaxation in the high intensity and low mist steam chamber called the Hammam. What I loved about being in my own private Hammam, is that you can really clear your thoughts and relax. It’s like meditating in a really warm and cozy environment. The 15 minutes I spent sitting in the Hammam flew by.

Once the relaxation portion over, you are escorted out of the Hammam and into a warm room of Jerusalem gold marble as pictured above. The Gommage starts off with the rubbing of oil over your body as you lay on the luxurious marble. The spa attendant will then, using small exfoliating gloves, scrub your body with eucalyptus infused Moroccan soap, taking off all the excess skin. Once that step is complete, you will be rinsed fully. The entire process is very invigorating and uplifting. The experience felt detoxifying and left me feeling a lot better than when I arrived.

Following the Hammam & Gommage, I was escorted into their beautiful Alhambra Relaxation Lounge and offered their signature homemade baklava, grapes and mint tea. It’s the perfect setting to spend a few minutes relaxing after a treatment.

Every time I visit the spa, I am always appreciative of their exceptional facilities and change rooms. I thoroughly enjoy also being able to access Caudalie skincare products, complimentary of the spa.
