CLUB KASTALIA HAMMAM AND SPA – RELAXATION WITH ALL SENSES
The Origin of Hammam (Turkish Spa) comes from Roman Empire. Roman baths affected Anatolian and Ottoman culture and Turks made some modifications of taking bath according to their own culture, beliefs and traditions. In Roman baths there were “still water” to wash your body but for the Muslim society still water was not clean enough to take a bath. The water had to be running water in order to remove the dirt from the body so Hammam and Turkish baths became popular in Anatolia and in Ottoman Empire. In the course of time, Hammams became one of the socializing areas for Ottomans where business talks are made and women gather and make celebrations with musical instruments before their weddings. Today in Turkey these traditions are still very popular. In Hotels and resorts in Turkey there have been always a Hammam and relaxing rooms. Later on these Hammams become Spa Centers with the mixture of European countries’ modernizations.
”Sanus per aquam” is the Latin word for ‘SPA’ and derives from the town of the same name, Spa in Belgium. Spa in Belgium has been a bathing and health resort since the 16th century. In those times, especially the British visited the Belgian Spa. As a result, the term spa was primarily created in the UK. The British used to call it mineral springs, and in modern times Spa’s. Today, Spa is no longer the only place. The Americans gave the term the International meaning of health and wellness facility.
