A delightful afternoon! Booked this for our last day in Marmaris, and if I knew I would have booked it earlier to enjoy it twice. The experience is mind-blowing! Better than the modern-day spas! I’ve been told that this tradition goes back in the ottoman times, and I was so curious to experience how it feels. The staff was so professional, and they offered me 5-star services. Once they washed my skin, after the scrubbing, it was like an explosion of relaxation and freshness. Oh wow, I will never forget that feeling. I feel blessed for being part of this ottoman Turkish bath.
