A rasul, also spelled "rhassoul", is a kind of steam room that you enter after applying mineral-rich muds to your body. This traditional Arabian body treatment is ended by showering the mud off with cool water.
The treatment soothes and warms the muscles, so is ideal preparation for a massage. The mud deep cleans and the minerals moisturise, resulting in a softer skin.
At The Twelve Apostles Hotel, a Traditional Arabic Rasul is offered, either privately, or with a partner.
The traditional Rasul treatment has been updated to create a luxurious skin smoothing treatment which blends mineral rich mud, steam, and heat to provide an experience that cleanses, releases toxins and rejuvenates. The mineral rich mud is self applied to the body, hair and face.
Dry heat dries the mud and allows the skin to draw out impurities from the body. As the mud softens, its beneficial ingredients and natural minerals are absorbed by the body. A gentle rain showers signals the end of the program
