Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum is delighted to introduce the Quintessential Hammam Experience.

Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum is delighted to introduce the Quintessential Hammam Experience. The offer combines one of the most authentic Turkish experiences with luxurious accommodation, a gourmet tasting menu to sample delicious Turkish cuisine and a sightseeing tour to discover the rich cultural history Bodrum has to offer.

 

 

The Spa at mandarin Oriental, Bodrum is modelled on authentic Turkish baths, and guests are initially invited to a workshop to discover the history and secrets of the centuries-old ritual of communal Turkish bathing, whilst experiencing the domed ceiling havens of tile and marble.

 

 

The diligently created journey starts with an invigorating body scrub from head to toe with a glove known as a “kese” using all natural olive oil soaps while guests relax on heated marble. During this time they wear authentic cotton towels known as “peţtemals”. Once the skin is deeply purified and cleansed with water, guests are then treated to a full-body foam massage using all natural soaps with aromatic rose essences and designed to ease muscle tension. The treatment concludes with a personalised, intense hair conditioning. Guests are then encouraged to relax in the cool room “sođukluk”, where a traditional Ottoman sherbet of tamarind and delicious fresh fruit will be served. As a memento of this ritual and cleansing experience and reminiscent of the rich hammam culture of Turkey, guests will be also presented with an authentic essential cleansing set, which includes a kese, loofah, pestemal and oil soap along with a natural pumice stone and traditional silver-coated bowl.

 

 

A fresh and delicious menu to accompany is served at Sofra Restaurant, which exudes a warm ambiance in a soothing colour palette and where highlights include hand-crafted fire places reflecting the silhouette of an olive tree at night. The four-course tasting menu is crafted by the talented Turkish Executive Sous Chef, Metin Isci. “The menu is prepared with fresh, seasonal and mostly local products including wild herbs and spices from the Aegean mountains” says Chef Isci.

 

 

Guests are also offered a three-hour sightseeing tour of Bodrum’s historic city centre, which has a lively vibe throughout the year. The tour is designed to discover the remarkable sites left behind by the Romans, Byzantines and Ottomans including the Great Mausoleum, one of the original Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, 15th-century fortress, Bodrum Castle and the amphitheater, which still hosts concerts during the summer.

 

 

The Quintessential Hammam Experience package is valid for a minimum of three nights until 31 March 2015, and includes:

 

 

• Luxurious accommodation

• Daily sumptuous breakfast for two, served either in the privacy of your room or at Sofra Restaurant

• Spa workshop on the history of hammam and two 45-minute Invigorating Hammam Experiences

• Two take-home hammam gift sets
