Tibetan singing bowls are instruments that are common fixtures in sound healing practices. These instruments create enchanting sounds that can accompany a variety of rituals and practices. The singing bowls are to offer relaxation and powerful healing properties. Scientific studies show that brain produces beta waves in everyday conscience, alpha waves in state of meditation and delta waves only during sleep. When the singing bowls are recorded to be compared with alpha waves produced by our brain it was seen that the alpha waves produced were the same.

Sacred and unique, the hamam has been an integral part of local culture since the early days of the Ottoman Empire. This marble bath was for ritualistic ablutions, but it soon became a favourite place for socialising and business transactions – and for mothers to find potential brides for their sons! Today, the hamam remains a beloved spa tradition in many parts of the Islamic world.

Raffles Spa offers three separate hamams  – one for women, one for men and the special Katre Lounge for bridal parties, celebrations and other special occasions. This exclusive hamam experience begins by gathering in a private suite, where everyone enjoys delectable meze and beverages. From there, a few guests at a time pass through an anteroom before entering the communal hot area for a foamy wash, body scrub and all-over massage while lying on gently heated marble.

The Turkish hamam confers holistic benefits, cleansing and purifying the whole body while restoring the mind. If you have never experienced one, our spa staff would be more than happy to give you more information and introduce you to this ancient ritual.
