If its one piece of advice I can give, its start your holiday day1 in here!! Having a Turkish bath helps with your tan and rids the body of impurities before you start sun worshipping, but also more importantly its just the most relaxing experience ever. From the moment you walk through the gardens up to the Baths you can... More

After Ephesus, this Turkish way, massage, was very relaxing... Plus it was so reasonable for the excellent 20 minutes traditional soap bubbles hand massage...

It's a amazing experience and the guys who work there are so nice. I will strongly recommend this and it is much cheaper than Istanbul's. Trying message, too.

This is a fun thing to do while you are in Turkey. A nice cultural experience. You will come out feeling squeaky clean!

Massage and bath were so traditional. You will be amazing a the dead skin that comes off you body. I had an hour massage which was the best massage I have ever had.

While I'd had plenty of massages and visited baths elsewhere, I had my first tradition turkish scrub and massage in Selcuk. It was great. After the soapy massage, I had an oil massage for just 15 TL more. All the attendants were male and I felt kneaded as never before. The building itself is the traditional dome with light holes.

This was my first experience in a hamam, so I had to be guided by the non-English speaking locals. I also chose to go at the women-only time, which is Friday afternoons. I enjoyed the lack of body consciousness, the sense of camaraderie between the locals. I was rubbed with a loofah (do i have any skin left?), soaped, then... More

The turkish bath was great and does give a better longer lasting tan. However paid the extra to have a full body massage afterwards which was awkward and uncomfortable as it was done by an elderly gentleman who repeatadly kept massaging my groin. It was not in the slightest relaxing! My partner also had a full body massage which he... More

We went to the Hammam knowing it was mixed. It was a bit seedy looking, but we did realize how old it was. Despite being mixed, the staff were all male. My husband and I both wore bathing suits. The exfoliation, scrub and rinse all went as I thought they would. I opted for the oil massage and he had... More
