Insider's Tips
  • Be sure to try the Hammam ritual - Each Hammam ritual begins with a warm-up phase in the steam room with a basic ritual (Hamam Basic) consisting of a full-body scrub and soapy full-body lather and a hair wash. You can keep the exfoliation gloves after you have finished. Then, depending on the ritual you have chosen, you are given either a short or an intensive massage either with soapy lather or with oil. Some rituals include a facial mask. The treatment is rounded off with the traditional Hammam refreshment Kolonya, a fragrant Turkish lemon water. Of course, you can also order fresh fruit and champagne with any of the rituals.
  • Combine your stay with some skiing or one of the other wintersports offered in the area for the ultimate fitness break.
