You could go for the traditional hammam experience in a
long-standing, authentic spa. Or you could get the jet-set, super-deluxe
version at the spa at the Edition hotel. Spread across five floors underground,
the superior Ian Schrager designed spa would fit perfectly in Darth Vader’s Imperial
class Star Destroyer, and who doesn’t want to cross over to the dark side?
Leather floors and horsehair walls not only suck up any negative energy, but
also show the Edition is only about the best. The hammam experience here,
taking place within a private treatment room, includes warming-up in a sauna before
a scrub-down so serious you will be left with one last layer of skin, being
drenched in milk and honey (it tastes good if you get hungry) and quietly
recuperating in one of the ‘relaxation pods’ in the lounging room stacked with
herbal teas, fruits and fashion magazines, all leaving you feeling like a
cleaner, softer version of yourself. Aside from the Espa treatments and lounging rooms, there’s a snow room and a water jet pond.
