Hammams, or Turkish Baths, are an authentic and traditional Middle Eastern experience and there are several places to try it in Sharm (ask your hotel for recommendations).

It starts in a heated room, promoting perspiration, followed by a full body wash, exfoliation and deep cleansing, and massage. Options usually range between 1 and 2 hour treatments.

Known for their relaxing and rejuvenating properties, these baths are great for skin health and overall well-being, as well as a chance for some welcome cultural immersion.
