About
The Turkish bath starts with relaxation in a room (known as the warm room) that is heated by a continuous flow of hot, dry air, allowing the bather to perspire freely. Bathers may then move to an even hotter room (known as the hot room) before they wash in cold water. After performing a full body wash and receiving a massage, bathers finally retire to the cooling-room for a period of relaxation.

Mohammed Abu Dallah was an excellent therapist with good knowledge of physical therapy. And the spa was warm on a cold day.

We followed the reviews and from what we can tell, this is the same place as the Al Yaktour spa.

We got a steam and a cursory hammam scrub followed by a massage. the place was very busy with at least 15 people in the room. not exactly private and while there was a private room for a woman massage, as it was so busy, most of the women had male masseuses and we all had the hammam scrub in public view. there didn't seem to be any restriction to access. if you turned up they sent you in.

We went at 5 pm obviously a busy time and it may be more relaxed and private at other times.

On a positive note, if you have spent 4 or 5 hours walking in Petra, a good steam and a bit of a massage was welcome and it was not expensive in comparison to a real spa. but don't expect Six Senses.

Perfect to relax yourself after days of walking around Petra. I booked at another hammam that was incredibly disappointing, and walked into this one on the off-chance that they could squeeze me in. They not only made time for me, but made me feel like a queen!
The male masseuse was very respectful and I felt 100% comfortable the whole way through (even as a solo female traveller and the only woman in the hammam at the time). Afterwards they made me a mint tea and we chatted for a while.
Can't recommend enough :)

We enjoyed the massage very much, and pulled our tight muscles back into shape, the scrub was glorious and felt so good! The steam was great too after being on the dry desert all day. All in all was a refreshing experience.

Nice people, steam room 30min, hot stone ca 10min, scrubbing 5min were ok. Massage was a little short...only 3 or maybe 5 minutes. Expected a little longer, but maybe this was the common way. The girls had a little longer that day. Price was ca. 45 euro per person... we were 3 adults, one kid. Seperation male/female was good.

After a long day at Petra this was just what the doctor ordered. Ziad was a great host. He picked us up at our hotel, walked us down the street, gave us tea and coffee while we waited and then . . . Steam room, hot stone beds with cooling water poured over you periodically, an exfoliating scrub, and a phenomenal massage. I feel like new. Wish I could end every day this way!

Thank you Ziad!

After three days of hiking and climbing hundreds of stairs, my legs were starting to pack it in. Our guide suggested a Turkish bath and arranged for me to visit the Nabatean Turkish Bath in Petra. I was already wanting to try one, so jumped at the chance. Not only was the price very reasonable (much less than a massage in Australia), I was picked up from the hotel and driven there - a good thing because even though it was very close I don't think I could have walked. Lots of steam, then lying on a warm stone slab having cool water poured on your forehead and stomach, followed by a great massage concentrating on my aching legs. Wonderful! Felt so good I walked back to the hotel. I don't think I could have done as much walking as I did in the next couple of weeks without my visit to this bath house. All the staff were lovely and spoke good English. Also it is not segregated so couples can go in together. Very highly recommended.
