Relax, Unwind and Indulge in Ciragan Palace Kempinski Spa, Istanbul
To call Istanbul’s Ciragan Palace Kempinski “luxurious,” would be the height of understatement. This former Ottoman palace is like a scene from a fairy tale, and the spa offers treatments that are fit for a sultan.
Some examples of the Ciragan’s royal treatments:
Below is a sampling of four distinct treatments that will leave you relaxed and feeling like true royalty:
The 1001 Nights Hamam – 90-minutes of pure relaxation where two therapists pamper you step-by-step. First enjoy a peel of sweet treats including cinnamon, Turkish coffee, honey, milk and olive oil. Following, enjoy a sherbet palate cleanser and begin the second stage. Guests are treated to a massage while covered in olive oil soap for full nourishment from head-to-toe. End the treatment with a relaxing scalp massage.
Rose Care (Rose Oil Aromatherapy) – This whole body package is sure to leave you smelling and feeling beautiful. Begin with a body peel of rose petals and brown sugar followed by a milk bath. Then snuggle under a thermal blanket for a full body wrap that includes rose oil to allow the skin to absorb the minerals. A massage begins and allows the body to stretch and revitalize ending with a delicious cup of rose tea.
Turkish Coffee Body Scrub – This 25-minute peel is sure to leave the skin glowing afterwards. A mixture of Turkish coffee, mineral salts and vanilla oil, it offers a invigorating scrub that removes the dead skin and along with the effects of caffeine it boosts blood circulation and revitalizes. It is also a good cellulite treatment.
A Package for the Senses – This 90-minute treatment appeals and will heighten all five senses! As you enter the Hamam, you will HEAR the enchanting sounds of a Turkish (Sofi), a traditional live performance. You will be lead to a treatment room for a relaxing body scrub (TOUCH) where warmth from the hot stones will surround you. Following the scrub, guests will drift into a light sleep as their eyes are covered with rose water soaked patches. As you relax and drift off, the aroma of rose oil fills the air (SMELL) and is applied near the guest’s nose to clear the passage as well as applied to the neck and shoulder massage. The massage is then completed by rinsing of the hair and body. Guests are taken to watch (VISION) the authentic dance show and served (TASTE) traditional Turkish coffee and delights.
