A Turkish bath or hammam (Turkish: hamam, Arabic: ḥammām‎) is the Turkish variant of the Roman bath, steambath, sauna, or Russianbanya, distinguished by a focus on water, as distinct from ambient steam.

In Western Europe, the "Turkish bath" as a method of cleansing and relaxation became popular during the Victorian era. The process involved in taking a Turkish bath is similar to that of a sauna, but is more closely related to ancient Greek and ancient Roman bathing practices.
The Turkish bath starts with relaxation in a room (known as the warm room) that is heated by a continuous flow of hot, dry air, allowing the bather to perspire freely. Bathers may then move to an even hotter room (known as the hot room) before they wash in cold water. After performing a full body wash and receiving a massage, bathers finally retire to the cooling-room for a period of relaxation.
Sultan Hamam Turkish Bath (Marmaris, Turkey)
Overview
Enjoy an indulgent local experience with this 1.5-hour visit to an authentic Turkish hamam, including hotel pickup and drop-off. Your rejuvenating Turkish bath includes a toxin-releasing steam, a relaxing soap massage and a vigorous exfoliating body scrub, as well as an optional oil massage. You’ll leave feeling squeaky clean, with silky-soft skin ready for that perfect vacation tan.
What to Expect
Start your Marmaris hammam experience with a hotel pickup at a time to suit your schedule, and then travel to one of the city’s beautiful Turkish baths to enjoy 1.5 hours of pampering and relaxation.

Head inside with your entrance ticket, change into your bikini or swimming shorts, slip on your peştamal (traditional cotton robe), and leave your clothes in your locker. Then, step inside the bath chamber where a heated marble platform covers the floor. Lie on the marble slab to encourage your body to sweat, and splash yourself with hot water from the bathing basins that fringe the room.

After relaxing and building up a sweat in the steamy bath chamber, one of the baths’ attendants will exfoliate your body, scrubbing you down with a loofah mitten and hot, soapy water. Halfway between a slippery massage and a vigorous rub with sweeping strokes, the scrubbing has well-documented benefits; clearing your pores, removing dead skin cells and regulating your blood circulation are just a few of them!

Rinse away the soapy suds with hot water from the bathing basins, put your peştamal back on and then visit one of the baths’ cooler rooms to relax. The duration of each stage of your Turkish baths experience varies, but most people find 10 minutes on the marble slab, 20 minutes of exfoliation and 30 minutes of relaxation time to be the norm.

If you want to really enhance your relaxation time, upgrade to include an oil massage, too! Using firm pressure, your attendant will smooth away any knots, aches and pains and relax your muscles.

Feeling relaxed and rejuvenated, return to the changing rooms to dress and then leave the bath house to meet your driver. Your experience finishes with a drop-off at your Marmaris hotel.
