Experience luxury Turkish Hamam (Bath) in this ladies only facility. As you walk into the camegah (lounge), you will be enchanted by the grandeur of the building and the impressive main dome, considered among the largest Hamam domes in Istanbul. While our colleagues explain to you the details of our service/the ritual, you may enjoy the mystical environment and sip our traditional home-made şerbet (sherbet). Once you feel ready, you will be guided to the dressing rooms to do your peştamal (the classic cotton hamam wrap) and to start your Hamam experience.
A special attendant, – natır – who will be assisting you all along your journey inside the Hamam, will be welcoming you at the entrance of the hot room. To relax and soften your skin as well as helping your body to adjust to the heat of the Hamam, first you will lie down on the Göbektaşı, the hexagon heated marble in the middle, for at least 10 minutes. Then, your attendant will take you to the next to the Kurna (the marble water basin) where she will exfoliate your body with a special scrubbing mitten, the kese. After rinsing, the final step of the ritual – Köpük (bubble soap wash) will start and you will be rubbed with a loofah, leaving you with a feeling of purification.
If you want to treat yourself further, you can enjoy the ambience of the Hamam as long as you may require. And those guests preferring to leave the hot rooms right after the ritual, camegah is the area where you may rest on the comfortable sofas and taste the traditional refreshments and delicacies of the Café Menu.
