Based on the Turkish health philosophy of wallowing in hot steam (then rinse, repeat), the 500-square-foot co-ed steam room with black slate surfaces here is like a ‘natural grotto’. Essential oils are pungent yet fragrant, in a room that cloaks its clients in darkness.
First use the hammam (meaning ‘ritualistic bath’) to detoxify your pores, and then follow with a treatment in a seductive maze of rooms. The spa offers everything from Dermalogica facials to Reiki massages and algae wraps.
The mani-pedi room has a sultry sultan’s tent vibe, with personal flatscreens showing Cirque du Soleil on silent (surprisingly mesmerising).
