Spa Profile: Hammam Bathing House Athens
Whether you’re a local or traveling abroad, experiencing a traditional Turkish bath is something you won’t regret. With roots in ancient Greek and Rome, Hammams are open bathing areas that focus on the elements or water to cleanse the mind and body.
With stunning marble facilities, Hammam Bathing House of Athens offers a wide range of services, from the traditional self-service Hammam option to body treatments, massages, and even manicures and pedicures. They also have a second location, Hammam Bathing House of Thessaloniki, which is located in the Greek port city of Thessaloniki on the Thermaic Gulf of the Aegean Sea. We caught up with Efie Spiropoulou, Supervisor of Hammam Bathing House Athens, for a closer look inside the world of Hammam:
Why You’ll Love It: The first thing our guests notice upon arrival, right from the entrance, is the fresh smell of our soaps! They love our environment because we always try to have the warmness and the welcoming element they deserve. Guests fall in love with the high-quality services we provide.
Key Features: We provide everything one can need during their visit. We provide the towels, disposable underwear (if they don't have a swimming suit), and flip-flops for a comfortable service. Our boudoir area has a selection of products for use, including body milk, face cream, hairdryers, etc.
Insider’s Tip: We would suggest with your hammam or massage service to combine an extra beauty treatment, such as a facial, cleansing or hydration, or a manicure and pedicure as well. What a lovely opportunity to treat yourself in the best possible way!
Bonus: Since hammam helps to deeply detox, alcohol should be avoided during the visit. We do have a selection of tea guests can enjoy after their service, while further relaxing in the lounge area.
Snacks Served: After each service, guests are welcome to enjoy tea and Turkish Delights we offer in the tranquil lounge area of Hammam Bathing House.
Unique Treatment: We have a service called The Ancient Greek Massage based on the principles and teachings of Hippocrates. It’s an exclusive certified service and a unique experience that combines tradition with innovation! The use of powder, brush, suction cups, and essential oils provide excellent results on the nervous, muscular, and circulatory systems.
Splurge Treatment: The most luxurious service is the Tatli Deniz, which is known as the bridal service. It's provided exclusively in the hot area and includes double exfoliation—one with a body glove and one with a scrub, body and hair wash, full-body massage with the foam of natural olive soap, and face and body masks with green clay, flower water, and honey!
Insider’s Favorite: We love all our services because each one provides a different aspect of hammam and relaxation in general. One that is most popular is the Ali-Mama Hammam service, since it is very similar with the service that is traditionally provided at the Turkish hammams.
Featured Products: Hammam Bathing House has its own brand and carries several products as shampoo and conditioner, body milk, and shea butter, as well as massage oils and savon noir. We also carry a selection of soaps, most of them olive oil-based.
