If you are staying in our charming little town Turunc, and you want to have an authentic Turkish vacation, then you must visit Turunc Ottoman Turkish Bath. Turkish Baths are part of the historical and cultural heritage of the Turkish people.
The word “hammam” originated from the Arabic word “hamma”, which means “ heating up”. Although the concept of hammams dates back to ancient Greeks, Byzantines and Central Asia’s Turkish people. After he conquered Istanbul, Sultan Mehmet the Conqueror ordered the construction of nineteen baths in the city. Baths were most often built as an integral part of kulliye, which were big religious charity building structures. They usually included either a mosque, soup kitchen, hospital, school, library or student dorm.
Our visit to the hammam starts with a complementary transfer from your hotel to the hammam building. Once you change into a bathing suit in the changing room, you will be shown into a sauna. The humidity and hot air will help your pores relax and widen, so that other treatments could be more effective. Next comes the body scrub treatment,there you will get rid off your skin of all the dead tissue and excess dirt and oil.
After the scrub, you will get a delightfully gentle foam massage. This full-body massage is done with a special foam gathered from a nourishing hand-made soap. The next step will be the oil massage, which has the role to further protect and nurture your skin. It is valuable to mention that all of the massages are carried out by the hands of skillful professionals, so you can be completely certain that you are in great hands. It may seem that the main focus of these treatments is on skin rejuvenation, but their effect is actually much broader. Once you receive a full hammam experience, you will feel both spiritually and physically uplifted.
