The Hammam, or Turkish bath, is a middle eastern practice whose roots go back to ancient Greek and Roman traditions. The Hammam ritual we offer our guests makes use of Moroccan products for deep-down skin cleansing and provides a harmonious combination of beauty and wellness, bodily purification and mental relaxation.
Black soap, Argan oil and Rassoul are the main products used in the Hammam, which originates in Morocco. This bath is in turn connected to a series of rooms with different temperatures and humidities: the tepidarium (Westya), calidarium (Beit el sakhin) and frigidarium (Beit el barid) allow the body to acclimatise gently and naturally.
The Hammam is open to both men and women and is a useful and pleasant practice all year round. During the winter it helps prevent cold-related problems, it frees the airways, counters muscle pain and thanks to the peeling, it eliminates toxins for a more elastic, firm and relaxed skin. During the summer it reduces body temperature, to give a refreshing action and, together with the peeling, it renews tans to lend a lasting glow.
