During my stay at the Grand Hyatt Istanbul (which you can read about more in a separate article here) I went for a Turkish Hammam Treatment at their Gaia Spa. Turkish Hammam Treatments are something truly special and I would highly recommend trying one if you visit Turkey. The time for my appointment had come and I couldn’t wait to get started!
The Gaia Spa is located on the mezzanine floor of the Grand Hyatt Istanbul. The glorious Turkish Hammam experience began with a 10 minute steam or sauna. I went for the steam and allowed my pores to open in preparation for the treatment.
After stepping out of the steam room, I stepped directly into the Turkish Hammam, which was the largest I’ve ever been in. The design of the room was gorgeous and could fit several guests at the same time. The Turkish Hammam Treatment started with a body scrub, followed by a bath with lots of bubbles, and finished with a brief massage. All in all the treatment lasted for 30 minutes and I enjoyed every second! I left feeling refreshed and energized. Once it was over, we had the option to relax in a relaxation room.
If you visit Turkey, a Turkish Hammam Treatment is a must. It’s something truly unique to the Turkish culture, and lovely all around. My experience at the Gaia Spa inside of the Grand Hyatt Istanbul was fantastic and I can easily recommend it to you!
