MARRAKECH ISN’T JUST A CITY. IT’S A POEM. A BEAUTIFUL POEM, TRANSLATED INTO MANY LANGUAGES: ITS SCENTS, ITS ARCHITECTURE, ITS MYSTERY, ITS ELUSIVENESS, ITS SHADOWS. I WAS BORN INSIDE A POEM.
~Rachid Mansoum, “Fils de Marrakech”
A simple description is that a beautiful custom-made wooden box arrives and within you find reusable beech wood canisters filled with fragrant Moroccan tea, savory black soap, and a beautiful book that takes you into Morocco and shows you its rich past and vibrant present while accompanying music guides you through the bustling streets and into the calm and restorative public baths, known as Hammams.
A more veritable description is that you will embark on a journey to discover Marrakech through sight, sound, texture, and the gorgeous scents of moroccan tea and black soap. Before entering the most intimate of public places—the hammam—you will open your senses and experience crowds juxtaposed by havens of peace, the souk and the riad. Let yourself be swept away, following the light and colours, which change every hour.

You will dive into the experience by listening to an original musical score created using music and sounds recorded in the city, as well as by trying all of the essential high quality locally sourced products that allow you to reproduce the ritual of the hammam in the most authentic way possible.
Fascinating Marrakech is nestled between the desert dunes and snow-capped Atlas Mountains, and while it remains a medieval town that must be discovered by foot, from its back alleys to its small squares, you can explore it through Zhestia’s Traveling Moments.
