Asked Questions

Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions we’ve received from our guests.

You will wear a special hammam towel called peştemal, made of organic cotton or linen. It’s a tradition coming from the Ottoman Empire to the modern days.

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.

Massage therapy is well-known in many cultures. It can improve blood circulation, relax muscles, and decrease joint inflammation.
