The Ô de Rose Spa at Mövenpick Hotel Mansour Eddahbi Marrakech has been voted “Best Luxury Hotel Spa in Africa” and “Best Luxury Wellness Spa in Morocco”.

The distinctions were awarded by the jury of the World Luxury Spa Awards 2017 at a gala ceremony in Hanoi, Vietnam.

The World Luxury Spa Awards recognise the best luxury spas around the world for their high levels of service, expertise and excellence, as acknowledged by votes from the public and industry professionals.

Ô de Rose refers to the rosewater perfume preferred by Moroccan nobility during the 16th century Saadian dynasty. Among the five-star highlights in this two-floor wellness destination are soft steam showers, a jacuzzi, sauna, outdoor pool and seven treatment rooms, as well as a hammam complex for men and women.

A nail studio with Semilac products and L’Oreal hair salon complement the spa, which benefits from the expertise and know-how of Cinq Mondes. Authentic Moroccan products such as argan oil, beldi black soap and rhassoul mud are also used. 

“As a hotel team, we are delated about these distinguished awards. I believe the way in which our Ô de Rose Spa combines fragrance, design, history, service and skill is what makes it such an unforgettable venue for spa experiences,” says Peter Schönenberger, general manager of Mövenpick Hotel Mansour Eddahbi & Palais des Congrès Marrakech.

The hotel and spa reopened in October 2016 after three years of renovation by Parisian architecture and design firm MHNA Studio. It is linked to the Palais des Congrès Marrakech, which is also managed by Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.
