Massive 4,000sq m Moroccan thermal centre now open
POSTED 14 Aug 2018 . BY Jane Kitchen
The Vichy Thermalia Spa and Hotel in Moulay Yacoub, Morocco has opened its doors.

The complex is located about 20 kilometres from Fez, and the thermal area includes 4,000sq m (43,055sq ft) of space devoted to health and wellbeing, with more than 50 treatment rooms.

A new 100-bedroom hotel, designed by Casablanca-based architect Omar Alaoui, has been added, while an existing health spa facility was completely remodelled in a project that broke ground in 2015 and is estimated to have cost US$30m.

The spa has a large thermal pool with water sourced from 1,500m underground, as well as a pool and relaxation area reserved exclusively for women. The Moulay Yacoub thermal waters are said to be beneficial for rheumatology and joint pain, particularly osteoarthritis and chronic tendonitis.

The thermal baths also include 33 individual cabins with baths, jet showers, vichy showers, underwater showers, and special thoracic and lumbar therapy areas.

A further 18 cabins include areas for traditional massages, as well as Gharieni MLX Quartz beds, Iyashi Domes and Vichy cabins. There is also a hammam, and facials are offered with Laboratoiries Vichy products as well as treatments from Moroccan luxury skincare brand marocMaroc.

The Trilogie Soins Signature Experience combines hydrotherapy and Vichy treatments, and includes repetition of a hydromassage bath, hot vegan-mineral clay wrap with Vichy minerals, and a Vichy shower massage with two or four hands.

The hotel itself includes 100 bedrooms, a heated outdoor pool, kids club and fitness centre. A Satisform Centre includes machines designed to improve flexibility and mobility by stretching the spine.

A glass gallery connects the hotel to the spa, and showcases a testing bar with the latest Vichy Laboratoires products, as well as traditional products from marocMaroc.

The restaurant offers a menu curated by the dietician centre Vichy Celestins in France, and includes signature dishes created with Vichy Celestins water as well as traditional Moroccan dishes.
