Inspired by Roman baths, the hammam is a part of the Ottoman art of living that Jordanians have widely adopted. Experience pure relaxation in one of the two best hammams of the capital: the Al-Pasha Turkish Bath or the Marrakech Hammam. The full treatment takes about two hours and starts with steam, which prepares the skin for the application of the black soap. You stay a few extra minutes in the heat before the scrubbing session, performed by strong hands that leave you with skin like a baby's. Then it's time for your massage with olive oil while lying on a hot marble slab. Simply divine!
These two steam rooms are usually full, so it is advisable to book. Generally, they are open to women in the day and men at night.
