For a cleansing spa experience in Istanbul, a Turkish bath at a hamam is perfect for those looking for calm and relaxation on their holiday. Indulge yourself with a body scrub and soap massage as you enjoy one of the most unique traditions in Turkey.
What to Expect
The hamam is an atmospheric world all its own in the midst of cosmopolitan Istanbul. If you are stressed-out, tired, or just want to visit a place where time seems to have stood still for centuries, step inside for an authentic Turkish bath experience.
Immerse yourself in the long-established hamam experience at a luxurious hamam carved out of a cave, granting the best of both worlds: old-world tradition in a modern, luxurious setting. To help you relax after your daily tours of Istanbul, the professional masseurs offer a variety of services in addition to the traditional hamam ritual.
After changing, you will be taken to the Hot Room where your muscles will loosen up. You will proceed to the Warm Room of the bath,where the staff (tellak for men and natir for women) will scrub you down using Turkish soap and a special cloth.
Once you have finished there, you will be taken to the Cold Room and given towels to wrap yourself in. Here you may choose to enhance your experience with a massage, or simply relax with tea or other drinks.
After you get dressed, you will feel your skin renewed from the magic of the Turkish bath.
