When preparing to visit a Turkish hammam at Tattva Spa, it’s important to keep in mind the traditional and practical aspects of the experience. Here’s a guide on what to wear:
Tattva Spa provides guests in hammams a modesty towel or a traditional pestemal, a thin cotton wrap, for cover. This ensures privacy for the guest during the hammam ritual.
Flip-Flops or Sandals:
It’s common to walk barefoot or in flip-flops within the hammam area. Bring a pair of comfortable, water-resistant sandals to protect your feet from the warm marble floors.
For additional coverage, you are also provided a disposable underwear as well. At Tattva Spa the ritual is designed keeping the indian sensibilities in mind.
Hair Tie (for Long Hair):
If you have long hair, bring a hair tie to keep your hair secure during the hammam experience, especially during the water-based rituals.
Personal Care Items:
Tattva Spa may provides premium amenities such as shampoo, conditioner, and a comb for your use during the hammam ritual.
Loose, Comfortable Clothing:
After the hammam experience, you may want to change into loose, comfortable clothing. This will allow your body to continue relaxing and breathing comfortably.
Robe or Towel:
Tattva Spa at their hammams provide robes or towels for guests during the hammam ritual.
Staying hydrated is crucial, especially in the warm and humid environment of the hammam. Bring a water bottle to sip on between the various rituals.
