Marmaris Turkish Bath
Marmaris Turkish Bath is the Turkish version of the Finnish sauna or the Russian steam bath, but its difference is that its characteristics emphasises the use of water, not steam.
The history of Turkish baths goes back many centuries and shows similarities to the baths of ancient Greece and Rome. It also gained popularity during the Victorian era, being one of the best ways to cleanse and relax the body.
The best thing to do, would be to visit the hammam during the first days of your vacation, before plunging yourself into the local traditions, forgetting about all of your problems and therefore enjoying your holiday. It will also prepare your body for long days full of sunbathing.
To this day, the hammam wasn’t just a place to wash, it’s atmosphere will give you an unforgettable experience, acting on your body and soul. You cannot claim to have been to Turkey without paying a visit to a Turkish bath, no way!
In the hammam, you can warm yourself up in a sauna or soak up in a jacuzzi. After that you’ll enter a huge marble room, which is very warm itself and equipped with a pre-heated marble centre which you may lay upon. After you lay down for a while, you have to prepare your body for peeling. It is believed that the marble will help heal to heal minor ailments. This belief has stuck to us for many for a long time since the ancient era. The secret to it is that the heat works on the human body when conducted through the marble, therefore helping to relieve pain and stress in certain pressure points. The temperature can also be adjusted accordingly. This makes it one of the most important reasons to visit a Turkish bath.
After the ready-up process for peeling is done, a special mitt with a rough surface (kese) is equipped by an experienced massagist who will remove dead skin particles from your body and ease you with a massage using foam soap after the peeling session. Feeling rejuvenated and at ease, you can either relax at the lounge by the bar or enjoy an oil massage.
