Aux Gazelles – a true traditional Arab hamman, or steam bath, in the heart of the city. Guests are clothed in body towels and first lounge on hot marble slabs in three temperature zones before moving on to an invigorating full-body scrub, then final soap and oil massage. After your hammam, enjoy a refreshing cup of mint tea or turkish coffee at the Oriental Salon de ThÃ© & Bazaar.
