The hamam – a cleansing meeting place
The word “hamam” means “murmur”. This might sound like a strange name for public baths, but it actually explains a great deal.
The traditional Turkish baths were a place where people came to meet, talk and share ideas. In other words, this was a social arena just as much as a place for bodily cleansing, with ancient roots. Originally, the tradition came from the Roman Empire, but there the baths fell into disrepute after the arrival of Christianity. However, the tradition remained in what subsequently became the Ottoman Empire and eventually Turkey. And it still lives on to this day.
Our version of the Turkish baths is a pleasurable meeting between tradition and modernity, east and west.
Our hamam treatments can be booked as duo treatments together with a friend, in the same room each with your own therapist.
