A Turkish bath or Hamam is similar to a Scandinavian sauna but is closer to a Roman bath. It is based on the same principles as the steambath but the focus is on water rather than steam. At Spa Experience, we combine all of these relaxation and bathing techniques from around the world for your enjoyment. In Turkey, the hammam is a gently heated, tiled room with a heated marble slab called göbek taşı (tummy stone). Visitors lie on the stone slab and are scrubbed for exfoliation, then massaged with oils and finally washed clean with hot water. Hamam is a warm seating area where visitors can relax between uses of the steam rooms or sauna. Many of our beauty treatments also take place on a warmed stone slab, on which you can be massaged by our trained beauty therapists.
The Turkish bath combines the techniques of the Roman bath with that of the central Asian steam bath. The Turks called the Roman baths, hammam, which is actually an Arabic word meaning bath. The Arabs built versions of the Greek-Roman baths that they encountered following their conquest of Alexandria in 641 AD. By the 15th century, the Turks had completely conquered the formerly Christian Byzantine empire. It was during this period that the Hellenized Roman and Turkish cultures heavily influenced each other and gave birth to cultural fusion that is the Turkish bath.
Many baths were built under the Ottoman empire, particularly in it’s capital Constantinople but were also present in every Ottoman city. Unlike Scandinavian saunas, there were separate quarters for men and women, in smaller baths, men and women were admitted at different times.
