After a hotel pickup, sweat out any toxins on a traditional heated stone, have a vigorous exfoliating scrub, relax with an oil massage and enjoy a hair and body wash, too!

Start your Bodrum hammam experience with a hotel pickup at a time to suit your schedule, and then travel to one of the city’s traditional Turkish baths to enjoy 1.5 hours of pampering and relaxation.
Head inside the baths 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 main bath parlor where the heated gobek tasi
(raised central platform) covers the floor. Lie on it for roughly twenty minutes to encourage your body to sweat, and splash yourself with hot water from the bathing basins that surround the room.
After building up a sweat in the steamy parlor, one of the baths’ attendants will exfoliate your body, scrubbing you down with a loofah mitten and hot, soapy water to open your pores and clean away dead skin cells. With sweeping strokes, hammam scrubbing has well-documented benefits; clearing your pores and stimulating your blood circulation are just a few of them!
Finish up with a hair and body wash (you can provide your own shampoo if you prefer), and then dry yourself off with a clean towel. Enjoy some free time to relax in the lounge with a hot or cold drink (own expense), return to the changing rooms to dress, and then leave the baths to meet your driver.
Finally, finish your Bodrum hammam experience with a hotel drop-off.Please note:
if you plan to tan, this experience is best done at the start of your vacation so your skin is left perfectly prepped for the sun.Highlights
