What to do in Malaga: Relax at Hammam Al Andalus


Looking for the best spa in Malaga? I have found it! Actually, it would be wrong to call Hammam Al Andalus a spa, because it’s not. It’s so much more than that. It's a whole experience - it feels like going into a time machine and enjoying the original Arab baths that date back to the days of the Roman empire. The Hammam is probably the oldest surviving bath tradition in the world. And the popularity of this ancient steam bath ritual has only grown over the years. And after visiting the Hammam Al Andalus in Malaga I completely understand why.

The whole experience at this stunning Arab baths in the heart of Malaga is really one of a kind. It is because before Hammam Al Ándalus Málaga opened its doors in 2013, they spent several years studying and developing a carefully detailed Moorish- inspired architectural project. The Hammam is located in the centre, in the old Medina, very close to the ruins of the city's old Arab wall. They are infused with the warm and luminous atmosphere that is so characteristic of the area, and it really helps to recreate the social ritual of Andalusia and this is what the whole idea of this Hammam is about. It’s about keeping the tradition - from the design and feel to the aromas and music.

How long is the Hammam circuit?

The circuit lasts 1,5 hours, including the time of the massage if you have booked one. It’s completely up to you how long you spend at each point of the circuit inside the Hammam that features three water rooms: a warm room at 36 °, a hot room at 40 º and a cold room at 18 º. You can also enjoy the steam room and the rest room where you can continue relaxing while savouring the tastes of a traditional Arabic drink produced from a smooth and aromatic blend of green tea with mint.
