HAMMAM - STEAM ROOM

Our "Hammam" consists of a single octagonal chamber based on a Moroccan style steam room with characteristic blue and red tiling and recessed bench-seats. The bath has a moist, aromatic atmosphere that is both purifying and detoxifying. Benefits of steam bathing have become increasingly popular in modern society.

The hammam originated from the days of the Roman Empire, when Greeks placed a high value on washing – citizens made weekly visits to the local bathhouses to cleanse themselves. The importance of cleanliness saw the development of these bathing rituals quickly adopted into Arabic culture, predominantly centered around the ablution before prayer. The lack of plumbing in homes in Morocco created a need for the bathing houses where this ancient treatment could be found, hence the development of what we now recognize as a social spa treatment.
