The whole of Malaga is steeped in history and it´s clearly apparent as you meander through the city streets. The Moorish and the Romans left their stamp on Malaga, and remnants of their presence can still be seen throughout the city today.
If you want to enjoy a little bit of history and indulge yourself at the same time, then we highly recommend a visit to one of Malaga’s Hammams. These can be found in the heart of the city and offer a relaxing, rejuvenating cultural experience.
The Hammam bathing experience is considered to be a type of purification ritual that has been around for centuries. It´s a place where men and women come to take sooth their mind, body and soul.
You´ll feel like you have stepped back in time. Picture a large, ornate, steamy room, atmospheric lighting and a superb massage, all finish off with a cup of fresh mint tea on the sunny terrace. Sound appealing? This is the authentic Hammam experience.
If you want to experience the bathing tradition with a slightly modern twist, then the Hammam Al Andalus in Malaga is the perfect place for you.
The Arabic baths offer a 1.5 hour session, where you can explore and enjoy the services on offer. From the thermal steam room and icy plunge pool, to the superb massages and oil treatments on offer; you´ll be spoilt for choice.
Everywhere is richly decorated in colourful tiles and marble, and the doomed rooftop has star-shaped skylights, which is typical of the authentic Arab baths found in other parts of Andalucia.
We do recommend booking in advance as treatments are subject to availability.
If you´re visiting Malaga and looking for a place to stay, then we highly recommend Malaga Luxury Suites. The apartments have been recently renovated with luxury and style, and its central location in the heart of the city makes it the perfect choice for a city break.
