If you are looking to spend valuable time with a friend or partner, a rasul mud treatment for two is our perfect antidote to the stresses and strains of everyday life.
This centuries-old Arabian cleansing ritual is one of our favourite spa treatment experiences. Using mineral-rich Moroccan mud, heat and steam, a rasul (also spelled ‘rhassoul’) mud treatment can be a fun and intimate experience for up to four guests. Mud therapy takes place within a rasul chamber – a dimly lit, tiled mud-steam room – and often complements invigorating heat and ice experiences at our spa hotels.
Slather yourself in different coloured thermal muds. As the mud starts to set, relax on heated mosaic chairs while the rasul chamber gently fills with herbal steam. As the mud softens, it exfoliates and draws out toxins from your skin. Rinse the mud off with a warm shower to leave your skin feeling nourished and your muscles soothed. The rasul mud treatment is a great way to prepare your muscles before a massage.

Your therapist will prepare the finest sea salt scrub and rasul mud for you to lavish over your face and body. As you relax in the glow of mood enhancing lighting, natural aromatherapy oil infused steam softens the mud before you shower it off. The luxurious rasul experience lasts for 90 minutes and includes a body exfoliation and an oriental scalp massage.

Rasul mud therapy and hammam experiences can be savoured at Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf and Spa. Lie on a heated stone bed in a mosaic-tiled hammam suite and enjoy a divine blend of muds, soaps and oils; from a traditional Turkish soap massage, to a ‘Red Island’ exfoliating ritual.
Whilst you don’t have to be four-legged to wallow in mud, we appreciate that the idea of bathing in mud won’t appeal to everyone. Don’t worry, our spa hotels have a full range of pampering spa treatments for you to choose from.
