The Hammams You Have to Try in Dubai
What’s more relaxing then getting a traditional hammam? Dubai has plenty of spas that offer amazing hammams that will leave your skin feeling refreshed and smooth. Below we’ve picked our 4 favourites that offer the full experience.

Anantara Hotel Spa

The Anantara spa offers a Turkish bath, which is as close to the real thing you can get without going to Turkey yourself. Lie down on a lovely slab of heated marble, while one lady scrubs you down and another washes your hair. Then comes the best part of the bath, the cloth that’s passed over your body which produces tons of bubbles. At the end, you’ll be covered in thick oil to keep you feeling fresh and silky smooth.

Address: Anantara, The Palm, Palm Jumeirah, Dubai, daily 10am to 10pm.

One & Only Spa

As shown in the picture above, when you enter the spa you’ll see the communal area which is open to everyone. Further in there are seperate areas where you’ll find more privacy. The masseuses who work here are from Turkey and Morrocco the birth places of the hammam so you know you’re in good hands!
Address: One&Only Royal Mirage, Al Sufouh Road, Dubai, daily 8.30am to 10pm

Palazzo Versace Spa

A Versace hotel is quite literally the most Dubai thing that could open in the city. We know what you’re thinking, Versace is usually associated with gold over the top patterns. However, the design in the spa is different from the usual Versace style. Following the typical hammam decor, you’ll see the main colour scheme is pale coloured walls and marble. Whether you’re staying at the hotel or you want a real treat for yourself, the experience at this spa is unparalleled with any other.

Address: Culture Village, Al Jadaf, daily 9am to 11pm.

Talise Ottoman Spa

This spa also offers the traditional Turkish hammam experience and full access to the facilities in the spa such as the steam room and sauna! The main area usually has a total of six people at a time, but can also be rented out if you’re looking to come in with a group of friends (which depending on your personality can either make you more or less comfortable)

Address: Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, The Palm, Dubai, daily from 9am to 9.30pm
