With twinkling Moroccan lanterns, the lingering scent of jasmine and the sound of the rippling Roman bathhouse, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were indulging your senses in Dubai or Morocco – not Melbourne’s Spa de Marrakech!

This luxurious new retreat has just opened its doors in the picturesque Yarra Valley, providing couples with a luxurious and unique option for a romantic getaway. Presenting exclusive traditional Moroccan treatments and products, prepare for your senses to be taken on an unforgettable journey, designed to purify the body and relieve the mind.

With a range of treatments from aromatherapy massage to radiant facials, couples can also experience the spirit of the Roman Bathhouse, relaxing in the hot mineral spring water and comforting the body and easing tension in the steam room.

The owner of Spa de Marrakech, Deborah Quitt said, “Spa de Marrakech opens the gateway from Melbourne to Morocco. Our Moroccan Spa and Roman Bathhouse offers luxury and pure relaxation featuring hammam rituals and steam rooms in an authentic setting.”

“Our spa packages, facilities and treatments are unique and all designed to give you an experience that has not been available anywhere in Australia before.”

When it comes to attention to detail, no Moroccan stone has been left unturned. Everything from the interior design and the decorative floor and wall tiles to the Egyptian stone camels that guard the grand entrance has been sourced directly from Morocco, Dubai and Egypt.

As well as experiencing a touch of Moroccan spa culture, you can also indulge your taste buds and savor some Moroccan cuisine before or after your treatments. The spa’s private Moroccan booth seating is perfect for couples seeking a more intimate dining experience. For those who’d like to extend their stay, the resort also features oriental style accommodation. Combine all three for your next romantic retreat and you will leave feeling like you have lived the life of Moroccan royalty.
