Moroccan Bath Bliss at The Heritage

The award-winning spa at The Heritage, Co. Laois, part of FBD Hotels & Resorts, has always been an oasis of pampering and relaxation. They have added two new therapy rooms for guests to enjoy their new selection of Moroccan Bath treatments inspired by traditional bathing rituals, which provide a holistic experience benefitting both body and mind.

The Hammam is a treatment influenced by the bathing ritual of the Ottoman nations. Relax on a warm plinth in absolute humidity, where steam and warmth help to open up the pores and prepare your skin for the exfoliating massage that follows. After the ESPA Salt & Oil scrub, the therapist will give you a nourishing massage with an ESPA Body Oil of your choice. This 45 minute treatment helps to relieve muscle aches, promotes a sense of calm and leaves your skin toned and moisturised (€100).

The Rasul treatment is made for two, so it’s perfect for a couple or friends to enjoy together. The treatment starts with a self-application of carefully designed mineral muds. Once the mud is applied, you and your guest can relax on heated mosaic “chairs” in the exotic Rasul suite whilst the room gently fills with herbal steam. As the room heats, the mud’s natural ingredients absorb the toxins from the body to aid the detoxifying and exfoliating process. A choice of different salt and oil scrubs are also provided for you to apply over the muds on selected areas. The 45 minute ceremony closes with a tropical rain shower from the star-lit ceiling to wash away the mud, leaving your skin beautifully clean, detoxified and soft. (€90 for two people sharing).
