Moroccan Month – October
A collaborative initiative of four Victorian spas: Aurora Spa, Hepburn Bath House and Spa, Peninsula Hot Springs, RACV Torquay spa
The Peninsula Hot Springs Hamam is the centrepiece of our Moroccan Month activities.
The Hamam, also often referred to as our Turkish steam bath, offers the warmth, atmosphere and cultural experience of the traditional Turkish experience. Built into the side of a hill at the base of the bathing gully in the Bath House, the dome-shaped Hamam uses steam and heat to help the body open pores and release toxins as part of a traditional cleansing ritual. Hamams (or sometimes spelt Hammam) originated in the middle East and have thousands of years of history.
