Experience a traditional spa treatment at the Grand Hamam Marmaris, and enjoy the pleasures of a Turkish Bath. Transfer from your hotel in Marmaris or Icmeler to the Grand Hamam Marmaris, and enjoy the sauna facilities, along with peeling, foam massage, and oil massage treatments that will leave your skin feeling amazing. A Turkish Bath is the Turkish variant of a steam bath, sauna, or Russian Bath. It is distinguished by a focus on water instead of ambient steam. In Western Europe, the Turkish Bath became popular during the Victorian era as a method of cleansing and relaxation. The process involved is similar to that of a sauna, but more closely related to ancient Greek and Roman bathing practices. The history of the Hamam extends far back in time, but it is still as prevalent as ever. It has never been a place to just cleanse the skin; its special atmosphere provides an enervating e...
We will depart from Izmir in the morning and two and a half hours later arrive at Pamukkale which means the cotton castle in Turkish. These white rock formations, known as travertines, are world famous and have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The water of Pamukkale is famous for the benefits it gives to the eyes and skin. It is also said to cure illnesses such as asthma and rheumatism. It is possible to swim in certain areas, so be sure to bring your swimsuit. Many centuries ago the Romans, aware of the powers of Pamukkale’s water, decided to build a large spa city called Hierapolis nearby. We will visit Hierapolis after lunch, which will be provided.

Hierapolis has a well preserved 12,000 seat amphitheater and the massive Necropolis wh...

The Roman rulers of Turkey used to use the natural spas in Turkey as Turkish baths. The Seljuks and Ottomans built large Turkish baths in the most populated areas of Turkey for the Turkish people to use. Baths have been part of Turkish society for centuries, and the reason they became so popular during these days was that Turkish people didn’t have facilities in their own houses. The local public Turkish bath became a social gathering place. People in Turkey in those days would view a visit to the Turkish bath as a day out and prepare picnics to take with them and eat after they have finished bathing. This tour offers a combination of the traditional hamam experience in a modern setting. Let yourself relax and unwind in an impressive hamam carved out of a cave, providing old-world tradition in a new and luxurious setting.

Was a great day trip. The service was nice and not pushy. The music on the ship wasn't disturbing either. Since the season was almost over, the ship was not as full. It was very pleasant. Unfortunately, there wasn't much time for swimming on the turtle beach. The children enjoyed the mud bathing a lot.
We had a great experience. Started out with sauna, followed by body scrub in the hammam and then 45 minutes of massage including face mask. Some of the best massages I have received thanks to 2 skilled masseurs from Uganda. Highly recommended to have a luxury experience!
On arrival staff very helpful, will offer extra add-on to the package. But they are worth it. Very relaxing. Would highly recommend. Will diffently return.
Great price-performance ratio. Was a little skeptical at first, but is really recommended.
Our guide was excelente and very knolgeable and nice
