This marvelous tour starts with a complementary pick-up transfer from your hotel in the lovely city of Icmeler. Once we reach the hammam building after a short and cozy ride, our delightful Turkish bath escapade can begin.
One of the members of the staff will show you into a changing room where you will change into your bathing suit and leave your personal belongings in a safe locker. Once you’ve wrapped yourself in a traditional Turkish white towel which is called “pestamal”, you will move into a sauna-room.
Sauna treatment will help you sweat and thus open up all of your skin pores, so that the upcoming treatments will have better effect. Once you’ve spent about ten or fifteen minutes in a sauna, you will continue your treatment with a delightful body scrub. The scrub is good to improve your overall blood circulation, especially circulation close to the surface of your skin. After this great treatmentnext step will be a gentle foam massage.
This, as well as all other hammam massages are done by professional masseuses who are specially trained in order to give you the best of what this kind of treatment has to offer. Next, you will receive an oil massage.
The main focus of this massage is to nourish and protect the skin, and also give it the natural glow. After this massage you will move into a room furnished with marble seats, where you can relax and unwind before you leave the hammam. Hammam visit lasts for approximately two hours. After your session is over, our licensed driver will come and pick you up, and take you back to your accommodation in Icmeler.
It is important to note that hammam visits are not a novelty or a matter of trend. Hammams have been an integral part of the Turkish culture for centuries and hammam treatments are known for their useful and rejuvenating properties.
Icmeler Ottoman Turkish Bath Tour starts with a pick-up from your logging in Icmeler. Our driver will take you for a short and comfy drive to one of our prominent hammams. Once you arrive you will be welcomed by the hammams cordial staff, who will escort you to the changing room. There you can change into your swim-suit and leave your belongings in a locker. Once you’ve covered yourself with a huge white towel, you can proceed into a sauna room.
Sauna room treatment aims to prep your skin for all of the treatments that are yet to come. Hotness of the air causes your pores to spread, and the humidity further cleans the dirt which has accumulated within them. Sauna treatment lasts for ten or fifteen minutes.
Body Scrub Tratment
Body scrub is actually a rough massage performed with abrasive gloves. Gloves are made of silk and horse hair, and their main use is to rub of the excess dirt and oil without damaging the skin surface. This scrub also improves the blood circulation and causes cellular respiration. It rids the pores of unnecessary oil and filth so your skin is easier to nourish with the treatments that are ahead of you.
Next you will receive a nourishing and replenishing foam massage. This technique requires some higher competence and skill-set from the hammam attendants. The foam used during this treatment is made of a unique handicraft soup, which is made by following a secret ancient recipe.
Oil massage is carried out by a professional who uses cold-pressed olive oil to massage your fully-prepped skin. This last treatment basically covers your skin with nutrients and necessary protection. Once this massage is over, your skin is fully prepared for sunbathing, swimming and other beach activities. This is why we recommend that you pay visit to an Ottoman Turkish hammam within the first day or two of your vacation.
After your two-hour session at the Icmeler Ottoman Turkish Bath, our driver will wait for your in front of the building. He will take you back to your lodging in Icmeler, so you can make the best use of the rest of your vacation.
