Turkish Bath Experience in Cappadocia
Indulge in a unique and rejuvenating Turkish Bath experience in the heart of Cappadocia, set within a distinctive “cave” hamam.
- Location: Immerse yourself in the charm of a hamam carved into the Cappadocian landscape.
- Ritual Entrance: Upon entering, find yourself in the camekan with changing cubicles. Attire includes a Pestemal, a large fringed towel wrapped around the chest, and nalins (clogs) clanking on the marble floor.
- Sicaklik (Hot Room): Pass through a semi-transparent door to enter the core Sicaklik, a high room filled with the sounds of splashing water, the scent of soap, and soothing steam. Daily concerns and worries dissipate in this tranquil space.
- Attire Suggestion: For enhanced comfort, we recommend guests bring their swim-suits.
- Relaxation: In the gentle moist heat, your body relaxes, and your nerves are soothed.
- Marble Wash Basins: Sit at one of the marble wash basins lining the walls. Adjust the water temperature to a delightful warmth, dip the copper bathing bowl into the basin, and tip the water over your head and body.
This Turkish Bath ritual provides a serene escape, allowing you to unwind and rejuvenate in an environment where the cares of the day simply melt away.

Experience the Bliss of a Turkish Bath in Cappadocia
Let the waves of relaxation wash over you as warm water ripples down, creating a serene atmosphere that transports you to a world of tranquility. Opting for the peeling & soap massage, known as “Kese” in Turkish Bath culture, takes your relaxation to new heights.
- Exfoliation (Kese): Your attendant, known as tellak for men and natir for women, pours hot water over you before meticulously scrubbing every square inch of your body. This thorough process removes dead and dirty skin, even from the skin between your fingers and toes.
- Lathering and Massage: Following the exfoliation, you are lathered with liquid soap and shampoo. Choose from various massage types, including classic, aromatherapy, medical, shiatsu therapy, and more, in special massage rooms accompanied by relaxing background music.
- Relaxation Guaranteed: The massage is designed to leave you in a state of complete relaxation. A final shower marks the end of the Sicaklik, the steam room experience.
- Rest and Socialize: After the treatment, you’re provided with fresh towels and guided to Sogukluk (the cool room, lobby). Here, you can rest, dry off, and socialize with other guests who have experienced the rejuvenating ritual.
- After resting as long as you desire, it’s time to leave. As you walk to your room and pass by the mirrors, catch a fleeting look at yourself. Your skin will be glowing with a rosy hue, soft as a baby’s skin.
