The Arab Baths of Granada offer moments of blissful relaxation in a wonderful, evocative setting. Located at the foot of the magnificent Alhambra Palace, and just behind the Church of Santa Ana (once the site of one the city's mosques), the baths were the first of their kind to reopen in Spain for almost 500 years, and are thought to stand on the exact same spot as the original, 15th century Hammam.

In designing the baths, every attempt has been made to recreate the splendour of Granada's Moorish past. The lavish arabesque architecture, the scent of fragrant oils and candles, the soothing notes of traditional Andalusian music, all combine to create a heavenly ambience which will transport you to the distant, magical era of Al-Ándalus.

This experience consists of a one and a half hour circuit of the baths' three water rooms (a warm room of 36º, a hot room of 40º, and a cold room of 18º). As you move between the different areas (at your own speed and in whichever order you like), you can also pause in the steam and rest rooms, and enjoy a delicious cup of traditional Arabic green tea infused with mint.

Finally, the session concludes with a traditional Kessa treatment and a relaxation massage.

  • For the Kessa treatment, the masseuse lathers and rubs down the body using the traditional Arab "Kessa" glove and red grape soap, clearing away dead cells from the skin and stimulating the circulation of the blood.
  • Next, you will be treated to a slow, ultra-relaxing massage using scented, hydrating oils and firm, continual pressure along the back and legs.

A truly memorable, sensual experience that will leave you feeling brand new!


The Hammam Al Andalus in Granada is located in the historic centre of the city, next to Plaza Nueva.
