The Turkish Baths Experience: A Journey of Serenity
The Turkish Baths experience is a multi-step journey that takes you through various chambers, each offering unique benefits for your body and mind.
- Relax in the Frigidarium
Your journey begins and ends in the Frigidarium, a beautifully designed relaxation room adorned with intricate Italian mosaics, Islamic arches, and Moorish-inspired décor. Here, surrounded by the elegant ambience, you will acclimatize to the warmth of the baths, setting the stage for ultimate relaxation.
- Steam Room: Unwind and Detoxify
Step into the steam room, where high levels of humidity combined with eucalyptus-infused steam create a haven for relaxation. As the steam envelops you, tension melts away from your muscles, and your pores open, allowing toxins to be eliminated. Feel the purifying effects as your body detoxifies and rejuvenates.
- Heat Chambers: Embrace the Soothing Warmth
Gradually make your way through three heated chambers, each offering a different temperature range from 40°C up to 70°C. Feel the soothing warmth seep into your bones as your muscles relax, releasing any tension and promoting a sense of deep calm. Allow yourself to fully embrace the therapeutic benefits of the heat.
- Plunge Pool: Reinvigorate your Senses
Intersperse your time in the heat rooms with a plunge into the invigorating cold plunge pool. The sudden change in temperature stimulates circulation, flushes out toxins from your muscles, and provides a toning effect. Feel a renewed sense of energy as you emerge from the plunge, ready to continue your spa journey.
- Repeat and Refresh
Throughout the Turkish Baths, showers are available to wash away any impurities from your body and prepare your skin for the next experience. Embrace the cycle of heat, steam, and cold as you repeat the steps, allowing the therapeutic benefits to deepen with each iteration.
