    I totally appreciated this one, thank you!!

  2. A bubble massage? While I generally don’t like being touched by strangers, and don’t care too much for massages, the bubble massage sounds fun! It sounds like you and your family had a great experience. I’d love to hear what the boys thought of that!

  3. This sounds AMAZING! Thanks for the great write up – I’ve never heard of a bubble massage but I WANT one :D!!! Clay masque sounds really fun – can’t believe it doesn’t melt in the sauna – that’s one hot steam room!!

    So glad you had a fab time – thanks for the note on clothing, I was wondering that about the baths, and assumed locals probably went naked, though I would likely stick to my bathing suit. Even though in a bathing suit it’s probably us that look like the odd ones out!!

      You know, it is funny you say that because I would expect that we do stand out if we wear a swimsuit, but no one seemed to mind. It was fantastic and I can’t recommend it enough! I wish we had options like this in the states. I would be there with bells on! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

    That sounds so relaxing! I have never actually had a massage anywhere, but I’ve always wanted to do this since it’s such a unique cultural experience. Thanks for the behind the scenes look!

    I have done a few turkish baths in various countries, but this seems to be a much nicer experience than i have had in the past! I usually leave feeling like i was beat up in there! haha. Love the clay masque addition too!

    […] Now an authentic 100% real deal Turkish hammam visit includes what the locals call a ‘bone crushing’ massage. We asked a local guide if they basically ‘beat on you’ and he shrugged and said, “Yes, of course.” Now I don’t know about you, but a bone crushing beating isn’t on my bucket list – even as a part of a fantastic Turkish adventure. LOL! So, in this case my daughter and I were very happy with what the hammam staff called a ‘soft massage’  which was clearly a tourist version of the real deal.

    […] The bathroom is LARGE and had all the comforts of home including soaps, shampoos, a hairdryer and scrubbing mitts. (The Turks are big fans of exfoliation! You’ll see these mitts everywhere, most importantly in the hammam for a traditional Turkish bath.) […]
