Traditional Hammam

Oriental scrub and soap bag massage

A traditional hammam treatment is a lavish and relaxing experience deeply rooted in the rich history of Middle Eastern bathhouse traditions. Originating in the ancient Roman baths, the hammam has evolved into an art form of cleansing and rejuvenation, with every element imbued with symbolism and careful attention to detail.

It was later adopted and refined by the Arab and Ottoman cultures, becoming the traditional hammam we know today. This ritual is a body cleansing and therapeutic experience.

    The ritual of the hammam is very relaxing and can reduce stress.

The steps of this hammam treatment

  • Steam and Rinse

    All Treatments
    You will be rinsed down by the Tellak with warm water while you lie in the steam room. This will open the pores and the first relaxation will take place.
  • Savon Noir

    With 90 minutes
    The Tellak uses a special soap, often made from olive oil, to soap your body. This soap is known as "Savon Noir" in the Moroccan tradition. It creates a smooth base for the next step.
  • Warm Rinsing

    With 90 minutes
    After the Savon Noir soap treatment, your body is thoroughly rinsed to remove all residues of the black olive soap.
  • Scrub Treatment

    All Treatments
    The Tellak uses a rough glove (kese) to thoroughly exfoliate your skin. This process removes dead skin cells and impurities, leaving your skin feeling silky soft.
  • Warm Rinsing

    All Treatments
    After scrubbing, your body is thoroughly rinsed to remove all remains of dead skin cells.
  • Soap Bag Massage

    All Treatments
    The Tellak will now cover you with a warm blanket of soap bubbles. When you are completely covered, the Tellak starts the massage and the soap bubbles are used to ensure that the massage feels smooth and supple.
  • Washing Hair

    With 60 & 90 minutes
    After the soap bag massage, the Tellak will rinse your head with warm water and then lather it with traditional Turkish olive shampoo and massage it in smoothly.
  • Cold Rinsing

    All Treatments
    After the body wrap, your body and head are thoroughly rinsed with cold water to remove all traces of soap. The cold water ensures that your pores will close again and gives your "resistance" a boost, which ensures that you are less susceptible to temperature differences and colds among other things.
  • Disinfect

    All Treatments
    We close the treatment by lightly disinfecting you with a traditional Arabic eau de cologne. This way you are resh and fruity to go along the day.
