TURKISH BATH (HAMAM or HAMMAM)

The Turkish bath, also known as hamam or hammam, is one of the ancient world's most widely exported customs. The tradition of the Turkish bath was born generations ago, adopted from Romans and Byzantines and then perfected by the Seljuk and Ottoman Turks and has continued even until today.

We offer the long-established hamam experience in a luxurious modern hamam carved out of a cave – allowing our guests the best of both worlds; old-world tradition in a modern, luxury setting. To help you relax after your daily adventures in Cappadocia, our professional masseurs offer a variety of services in addition to the hamam ritual. Our luxury hamam also features a sauna.

"What happens in a Hamam?" Well, the ritual is simple. You will find yourself in the Sicaklik. Sicaklik (also known as Hararet), a room filled with the sound of splashing water, the scent of soap, and wafting steam through which daily concerns and worries cannot penetrate. In the gentle moist heat your body relaxes, and your nerves are soothed. You sit down at one of the marble wash basins which line the walls, and adjusting the temperature of the water to a delicious warmth, dip the copper bathing bowl into the basin and tip the water over your head and body. Waves of relaxation seem to pour right through you as the water envelops your body.

Laying on the warm stone in the center of the room, your attendant (tellak for men and natir for women) will pour hot water on you and begin to scrub every square inch of your body. Basically, every millimeter of dead and dirty skin is scrubbed off, even the skin between your fingers and toes.

Afterwards you are lathered with liquid soap and shampoo and given the choice of massage options (a little bit painful for the first time, but said to be well worth it). After the massage, the attendant will wash you from head to toe again as if you are a small child. One last shower and then it is time to leave the Sicaklik.

Then you are given fresh towels and again brought to Sogukluk (the cool room) to rest, dry off and marvel at your glowing, soft as a baby’s skin.

We offer several packages in our hamam. Here are the rates.
