A work of the Ottoman master architect Mimar Sinan,
and nearly five-century-old Turkish bath, “Haseki Hurrem Sultan Bath House” was built by order of Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent (one of the greatest rulers of the Ottoman Empire) and named in honor of his wife Hurrem Sultan, commonly known as Roxelana.
Deep cleaning for body and mind during a 2-hour traditional Turkish bath experience. As authentic as cultural experiences get, a Turkish bath experience remains much the same now as it was during the Ottoman era.
Go inside a private cubicle to change into your bathing suit and, if you wish, a peştamal (traditional robe). Then, walk into the hammam chamber: a hot steam room with marble platforms, benches, and basins. Relax on a marble slab in a steamy bath chamber, have a vigorous and exfoliating scrub to strip away dead skin cells, and then relax in a cooler room.
After a massage and after cooling off, return to the changing rooms to dress and then leave the bathhouse feeling renewed, revitalized, relaxed, and rejuvenated.
If you’re planning on getting a tan during your stay in Turkey, it’s a good idea to have a Turkish bath at the start of your vacation, so your skin is perfectly cleansed and ready for the sun.
