Resting, fully relaxed, on a heated marble slab, an expert masseur attends to every need of the body, rejuvenating the skin and invigorating tired muscles.
Known locally as tellaks or tayebs, the masseurs are masters of their craft, hailing from Morocco, Tunisia and Turkey. Under their gentle guidance (the English word ‘massage’ is derived from the Arabic mass, or ‘gentle touch’), even the most hesitant guest cannot fail to entrust themselves to the care of the masseur.
The treatment begins with a vigorous exfoliation, starting with the back and moving on to the face, neck, shoulders, chest, stomach, hips, legs and feet – care is taken over every inch of the body, leaving the guest, in fact, with a new skin.
Please note that the Oriental Hammam operates separate hours for men and women.
