This year, Royal Mansour Marrakech has partnered up with celebrated foot virtuoso Bastien Gonzalez to offer guests and non-guests the opportunity to unwind, relax and revitalise with specialised foot and body treatments in one of the world’s finest spas.

Royal Mansour Marrakech has welcomed the Rolls-Royce of Pedicures into its spa. Bastien Gonzalez is internationally renowned for his glamorous and unique approach to foot treatments. The unrivalled passion for his profession has brought him to the highest levels of perfection in terms of quality, innovation, expertise and subsequently has earned himself the privileged status of foot virtuoso. He currently works with the most exclusive hotels around the globe, in Paris, London and New York, and now Marrakech, where his clientele are regularly won over by his highly reputable nature, specialist skills and his dedicated team.

Bastien Gonzalez has over the years focused and dedicated his work to wellness and beauty and has developed professional treatment protocols under his distinguished signature. Bastien Gonzalez recruits and trains every member of his team to his treatment etiquettes, guaranteeing excellence within his PEDI:MANI:CURE STUDIOS by Bastien Gonzalez across the globe. Bastien also develops products for his “Révérence de Bastien” line and distributes them to the high-end companies partnered with his brand.

The exclusivity of his concept lies in the fusion of both wellbeing and beauty and medically designed procedures complemented by a buffing technique passed down to him by his grandmother. The result of this has generated an unrivalled wellness experience. The additional secret to these unparalleled treatments is their spectacular element of massaging: whether during a pedicure or a manicure, the massage technique releases all tension in fingertips and toes.
