A Turkish bath, Hammam, is a place of public bathing associated with the culture of the Ottoman Empire. The process is similar to that of a sauna. Female and male sections are separated in traditional hammams. Yet the bathing rituals are similar between the sexes. The hammam experience is about leaving yourself in the hands of your tellak or natir, the male or female attendants respectively, who guide visitors through the progressively warmer sections of the bath until the cooling process.
Packages vary from traditional body scrubbing in the Sultan' s Quarter, moisturizing body clay mask, relaxing bubble wash ritual, head and neck massage Aromatherapy Massage, facial mask with face massage, oil foot massage in the Sultan’s Massage Room.
