About this Marmaris tour
Marmaris is a great place to experience a Turkish bath. This kind of bathing is still a very popular and is a major part of Turkish culture, a kind of spa for not only cleansing and relaxing, but it is also considered to be very social.
Ottoman Turks took the Roman bath idea from its existence within Asia Minor, along with its architecture and tradition. They changed certain procedures to suit their own culture and called it ‘hamam’.
Your ‘hamam’ will start upon arrival, where you will be taken to the sauna for a relaxing steam bath that will open your pores and soften the skin. After this, you will get a full gentle body scrub to remove dead skin. A foam massage, followed by an aroma therapy massage, before retiring to a cooling room for that important period of relaxation and a refreshing beverage.
With Hamams, You Get What You Pay For
When it comes to hamams, you get what you pay for. Generally, hamams offered in luxury hotels are pricey but come with premium offerings such as free drinks and a range of traditional Turkish aroma therapy oils. On the other hand, historic hamams are less expensive but offer fewer services.
Most people think the hamams are simply traditional forms of massage and body scrub. However, there is more to them. In the past, mothers visited hamam houses to examine potential brides for their sons. These houses were the top places for socializing in old Turkish society, apart from mosques.
