The temperature in a hammam varies between 25 and 50 Celsius degrees. Whenever you feel too hot, you may move to a colder room to chill.
Our massage therapists are from the Far East, mostly from Thailand. Traditional hammam full-body scrub and foam wash are performed by Turkish bath attendants called “tellak”.
Most of the hammams are not mixed, so you can join a male or female section of a Turkish bath. However, you may book a private event in our hammam and invite both male and female guests.
