Spa Facilities

The quintessential Babylonstoren Garden Spa experience is the Private Hammam Water Ritual in the marble hammam. Choose between the full hour water ritual with traditional scrub, dynamic stretching and massage or the intense Babylonstoren honey and salt scrub.

There is also an excellent selection of classic treatments to be enjoyed in our light and spacious spa rooms. Visit the steam room, sauna, heated jet pool or cold plunge pool and then unfurl and relax in our chill room or bamboo garden and select something wonderful to eat. Sip fresh juices and enjoy whole fruits from unusual varietals as well as mouthwatering salads and beautiful bowls of lentils or soba noodles. You'll leave our spa feeling refreshed and replenished!
