The tradition of Turkish bath is presented as a ritual at ARMAGGAN Bosporus Suites. Following a 45-minute head and body massage with natural hazelnut oil; the hamam attendant leads you to the warm, steamy marble room surrounded by bathing alcoves. You lay or sit on the heated marble surface to sweat. The tiles remove static electricity from the air, and help to relax the mind and body. The light, diffused through the ceiling is soft and relaxing.
The attendant then leads you to one of the basins, and performs a thorough and deep scrub. She uses a coarse mitt (kese) to remove layers of dead skin and your body is completely exfoliated. Then comes the soap. She uses a lacy cloth, like an icing bag, and blows through it to create bubbles so you’re covered from head to toe with white frothy bubbles.
After an amazing bubble massage, you get doused in warm water again and the attendant wraps you in towels and leaves you to cool down and have a rest.
