- How can I go there?
The Sultan Hamam is an old traditional Turkish bath in Marmaris. It is visited by thousands of tourists from all over the world annually because of its authentic Turkish bath atmosphere and a wide range of bathing opportunities. The bath is divided into two sections – one for men and another one for women. There are three bathing rooms – a cold room, a warm room and a hot room. There are also dressing rooms and rooms for rest.
Paying a visit to the Sultan Hamam you will be introduced to the cold room. In this section you will change your clothes and prepare yourself for the bathing experience. You can place your clothes and possessions in the special dressing rooms known also as cubicles that will be for your private use during your whole stay in the bath. As soon as you enter the Sultan Hamam you will feel the hospitality of the staff. They will give you detailed information about the experience itself and the facilities in each room.
After the cold room you will go in the warm room. In this section you have to adapt your body to the temperature change that awaits you in the hot room with the help of regular hot steam flows. You can stay here as long as you want and feel well. The temperature in the warm room will help your body to open its pores and to start sweating. Meanwhile you can take the advantage to drink some traditional Turkish drinks!
The authentic Turkish bath experience in the Sultan Hamam starts in the hot room. Lying on a large marble platform, you will have the chance to enjoy the traditional Turkish bath procedures such as washing with original Turkish soap and peeling with a harsh cloth. If you aren’t in a perfect health condition you will not be allowed to enter the hot room because of the high temperature there that is about 55 -60 C! In this case you should let the staff know so that they can provide you an alternative experience in the bath! In the hot room a team of therapists will take care of you by providing you all the useful information about your health condition and the best procedures for you! You can also try one of the various massages there so that your stay in the hamam can be complete! In the hot section you can stay as long as you want!
After the hot room you may feel exhausted so you can go for a nap in one of the rest rooms. They are spacious and will provide you the atmosphere you need for your nice stay. You can also proceed with the procedures by visiting the sauna or by having a cold shower.
