Shangri-La Spa Day: Hammam & Gommage At The Miraj Hammam {Video}

August 21, 2014

With just once glance at the Shangri-La Hotel in downtown Toronto it is clear this decadently chic hotel is a haven of East Asian luxury. There are so many decadent aspects of this beguiling hotel from their delectable high-tea menu to their world famous swimming pool and fitness centre. This past week, I had the pleasure of spending the day at the Shangri-La Hotel to experience another gem this hotel has to offer: its spa. The Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie Paris is tucked away on the fifth floor of the Shangri-La hotel. Toronto’s striking city landscape unfolds around the Moroccan inspired relaxation retreat. The Miraj Hammam spa draws on traditional Middle Eastern Hammam and Gommage treatments and has been a go-to spa desitantion for over twelve years.

The look and feel of the spa is reminiscent of Marrakech and Istanbul with distance French influences. Stepping into the spa truly does transport you to another world, one that is as welcoming, peaceful and eternally blissful as heaven. The Miraj Hammam spa offers many wonderful spa treatments ranging from the signature Crushes Cabernet Scrub to the Honey and Wine Body Wrap to the Vinoperfect Facial however, one of the treatments they are best known for is their classic Hammam & Gommage

The Hammam & Gommage treatment is a steam and body exfoliation that ties back to authentic traditions of the Middle East. Designed to relieve stress and anxiety, reduce muscle pain and leave skin soft, clean and renewed this treatment is an excellent way to revitalize without even leaving your city! The Hammam & Gommage treatment is made up of two segments, the first is called Hammam and is a private high intensity and low mist steam chamber.  The Hammam cleanses your body while stimulating your senses and imagination. As you lay relaxed on cool Jerusalem gold marble you can hear water trickling in a nearby fountain and feel your pores giving way to the airy steam that envelopes your body. Following your time in the steam room, you will undergo a total body exfoliation in a lower intensity chamber for fifteen minutes. It is amazing how many wonders exfoliating can do for your body. My lovely massuese informed me it is best to exfoliate yourself at home once a week and get a professional total body exfoliation once a month for perfect skin.

Following my immensely divine spa treatment I was escorted to the incredible relaxation lounge! This lounge is decked out in the most beautiful Eastern inspired furniture featuring large cushions, lanterns and an endless supply of reading material an refreshments. After each massage guests are brought a tray of delacacies and have the option to order additional food off the official spa menu which features incredible gourmet post-massage treats!

As I sat back in the corner of one of the beds in the sumptuous relaxation room only one thought was running through my mind: “I guess this is what being royal feels like!” The truth is, everything about the Miraj Hammam is designed to make you feel like a princess (or prince.) From the amazingly welcome and soothing staff to the superb quality of the interiors to the mastery of the treatments offer. Everything about the Miraj Hammam embodies the royal treatment!

The whole time I was at the spa I kept wishing I could share the magical moments I was experiencing with my family, friends and all of my lovely readers! Take a look down bellow at photos of the spa and a special spa day video I created to help inspire you to book your appointment at the Miraj Hammam today!
