Turkey may be more than 5 thousand miles away from Manila, but you can find traces of its culture and traditions here in Makati. One of which is the Hammam, the traditional Turkish bath designed to soothe, cleanse, and re-energize your tired body and soul.

Located at the 3rd floor of Discovery Primea is Terazi Spa, the only place in Makati where you can experience this unique treatment. Not sure what to expect? Here are a few insights and tips on how to enjoy your first Hammam experience.

Leave the stress at the door, and open yourself up to a relaxing and revitalizing treat. Your journey to a Hammam experience starts off with a warm welcome and and equally warm cup of tea. Make sure to complete the forms and inform your therapist of any medical conditions or limitations, as the heat of the Hammam may be too much to handle for some.

Terazi Spa’s Hammam bath room houses a traditional, marble-lined Turkish bath, the only one of its kind in Makati. A real tourist attraction you need not travel far away to.

Common Hammam etiquette includes wearing thin clothing, which will be provided by the spa for you to wear during the treatment. No need to be shy!

The treatment begins with a full body steam with servings of ice cold lemon water to keep you hydrated. The steam allows prepares your body for relaxation and opens up your pores. Laying down on the heated marble bed, a professional therapist will begin the Hamman ritual with gentle dousing, followed by a deep body exfoliation using the traditional ‘kese’ mitt. Don’t be surprised to see copious amounts of dead skin cells from your body! It only means the exfoliation is effective. The cloud of soapy bubbles that follows is a real treat to the senses, leaving your skin soft and silky smooth. The treatment is concluded with a shower and a cold, refreshing drink to cool down your body.

Eager to try the Hammam? Visit Terazi Spa at Discovery Primea to experience the wonders of the Turkish bath. Want to stay a bit longer for more pampering treats? Terazi Spa offers a well curated menu of therapeutic massage treatments and facials. For inquiries and reservations, please call +632 9558888.

Reviews

  • “It feels like home! Truly a service with a heart .. Keep it up!”

    Shan D., Tripadvisor

  • “Stayed at the Discovery Primea Makati for two nights in May in their Two Bedroom Primea Suite. This is truly an above and beyond hotel which after its soft launch I would be surprised doesn’t get fully booked straight away! Will now always make the Discovery Primea my hotel choice in Manila. Will be back next year!”

  • “I have stayed at many hotels in the City and have by far enjoyed this stay the most. From the moment I arrived I was greeted by warm and friendly staff who were very accommodating. The stand out for me is the apartment style facilities. A home away from home. Spacious rooms and modern appliances with a vast array of Chef inspired menu options. Will be back soon.”

    Stephen W., Tripadvisor

  • “A truly exceptional hotel. Very friendly and accomodating personnel, luscious food to die for, exceptional facilities with an exceptional view of BGC, Makati and Ortigas Skyline, and top notch accessibility. We’ll be back for sure.”

  • Great ambiance, service and food. From the lobby to our room, the experience was beyond words could describe. Kudos especially to housekeeping for the upkeep of the room. I would definitely recommend this hotel chain to my family and friends.
