Located at the foot of the Alhambra, just past Santa Ana Church, sits the tranquil Hammam Al Ándalus Granada. This is where after a long day of exploring the Alhambra’s gardens, palatial buildings and fortress, you’ll want to rest your feet and relax your muscles.

Follow the lead of Granada’s Moorish ancestors by stepping inside and enjoying 1.5 hours at your leisure. The tranquil baths are beautifully designed with resplendent Arabian decor featuring candle-lit walkways, vaulted ceilings, marble benches and atmospheric chambers.

Change into your bathing suit and help yourself to a cup of fresh mint tea or water. Then, relax your muscles in the hot thermal bath, followed by a dip in the cold one to stimulate your senses. Luxuriate in the warm pool and imagine times-gone-by when the Moors would bathe in pools such as this, discussing their daily lives. After, maybe unwind in the steam room and breathe in its calming vapors, infused with aromatic essences.

When the time comes, wander over to the bath’s Aroma Corner for a massage. Choose from oils scented with lavender, rose, amber or pomegranate flower essences, and then relax as your masseuse applies gentle pressure to your back, legs or both during your 15- 30 or 45 minute massage.

Alternatively, opt for the 30-minute Midra 30, which combines a 15-minute relaxation massage with an exfoliating scrub using a traditional Kessa glove and red grape soap to remove dead skin cells and stimulate blood circulation. For the ultimate experience, upgrade to enjoy the 45-minute Midra 45 which includes an exfoliating scrub and a 30-minute relaxation massage.

At the end of your session, head to the showers and then leave the baths feeling relaxed and revitalized.

Seriously, we could have stayed here all day. Warm tub, hot tub, delicious tea, cold tub, steam room and repeat. Then get a massage. Then repeat. Why is this not available in the USA? Each tub was in an immaculate room that had high ceilings, gorgeous tile work, and had carvings modeled after Alhambra. So beautiful. Not busy with other tourists, my husband and I often found ourselves in rooms alone. Get to your appointment early- I think this is why we had more privacy, because we started the circuits a touch before others. Omg schedule an Arabic bath. Treat yourself. I'm back in Spain and need to schedule again!!

Wonderful to experience, pools were great but add on the massage to make it ultra relaxing and peaceful. But people...don’t bring your kids to go swimming and do handstands in the pools! That is not what this experience is about! silencio was the motto of the day as the hamam guide repeated numerous times to people! Massage therapist were skilled, environment authentic and cool!

This was exactly what I needed at the end of my visit. You enter the baths were they have three pools at different water temperatures...cold, warm, and hot. The masseur comes and gets you when they are ready for you and treat you to an incredible body rub. I was so relaxed, I fell asleep.

y wife and I weren't sure what to expect going to an Arabian Bath when the outside temperature was +35 C (Hot). When we arrived, the staff is very polite. The experience 4 bath pools ending with a massage, where you start with a warm bath, then moving after 5-10 mins. at your own time between the other hotter pools eventually ending at the very cold bath, which at first was a bit of a shock but yet stimulating as your experience is tranquil. Then repeat the cycle, where the 2nd and 3rd time in the cold pool isn't bad at all, quite nice! Your time doing this is 1.5 hrs and the last 30 mins. is your massage where they find you and bring you to the massage area. We would do this again as it was a great experience. Important to note, you must be Quiet during the whole experience.

We had spent close to 6 hours today walking around the Alhambra, Albacin and Socromonte. This was the perfect way to end our day and we really enjoyed soaking in the tubs and having a 30 minute massage

A wonderful and relaxing experience. Perhaps the front desk could provide you information on what to expect before you head back.

This was one of the highlights of my time in Granada. A truly magical experience from start to finish. The baths are beautiful and you feel as if you are stepping back in time. The staff are friendly and hospitable and the ambience is divine. I had a lovely massage and felt really good afterwards. I would recommend this place and will visit again

If you're in Granada this is a MUST! My friend was a little skeptical to take a few hours to relax because when we travel we try to see everything we can and are constantly on the go. After spending five minutes at the baths she said it was the best decision ever. The atmosphere is so soothing. After booking, you choose a time frame. We chose noon. Once we arrived we changed into our swimsuits and were led into the dimly lit cave. The attendant explained the four baths and steam room process and then left us alone. There were only six other people in the entire baths which was the biggest plus. We rarely shared a bath with anyone. It was the most untouristy thing because they didn't cram 50 people in the area. Anyway as we were going through the baths we had an attendant call us for our massages. after the massage we sprawled out on a hot stone before returning to the baths and finished by drinking a sweet mint tea. It was fabulous!!! I would go back to Granada just to do this again!!!

This was awesome! I went directly after having a great5 time at the Alhambra straight to this and it was just what I needed. They were great and it's one of those things you need to experience at least once. I really recommend it! It's totally worth it.

This was a very unique and lovely experience , especially after our tour of the Alhambra. It was clean, professional and relaxing. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys hot tubs, saunas and massage. I went with my husband and daughter 17 years old. We all loved it and would return anytime.

One of the best experiences in Granada. The Arabian baths were very relaxing. The ambience, the music, the soft lights are just amazing!! You can just be transported to another world, a world of perfumed baths, warm pools, hot slabs, and luxurious massage!! Not to be missed!

A very relaxing experience - two hours goes by in a flash. We could easily have spent more time here!

We weren't sure what to expect at the Arabian Baths -never having been there. From the moment we stepped into the reception we were in a different culture totally. So atmospheric with low lighting, candles and mint tea in big kettles. We were taken downstairs to the changing room which is very dim and I needed help to see the number pads on the lovely wooden lockers! Then you go through to the baths - each one a different temperature including an ice cold one at the end. We had a 15 minutes massage with our choice of oils, which was very relaxing. There was an area where you could sit and have tea again. You can just wander at your leisure but the atmosphere is a hushed one and you are encouraged to speak very quietly. You do not need to take a towel. We finished before our allocated time was up so there is no rush. An amazing experience which was perfect after a long busy day walking around the Alhambra!
