You probably know this situation: you are walking around town, visiting cute stores and suddenly you end up in a location you absolutely love. This also happened to us during one of our last trips to Las Terrenas. We discovered Hammam Kef, a haven of tranquility in the heart of the city. You can go here for a traditional Arabic bath, Signature Treatments, Massages and even facials. So be sure to add it to your to-do list when being around.


It's a place to disconnect and stimulate the senses

When you arrive at Hammam Kef soon, you immediately imagine yourself in Arabian spheres. Not only the aromas, but also the interior and the tea they serve you, give you a hint of the Middle East. Think about Mosaic tiles, copper candle holders and lanterns.


Upon your visit, they provide you with a locker, a Turkish towel, bathrobe and slippers. So you don't have to worry about anything! Sit back, relax and enjoy your chosen treatment(s).

Signature Treatment: Classic Hammam

To give you the best information about the Spa, we share with you our favorite treatments and start with the Classic Hammam. This steam and body scrub treatment is part of the authentic traditions.


First, your body will be lathered with charcoal or Aleppo soap and you will spend time in the hammam steam room to relax the muscles and detoxify the body. This is followed by a bathing ritual that combines exfoliation and deep cleansing, along with hot and cool water techniques. It is delightful! Finally, the treatment concludes with a brief but full body massage with scented oil or cream. This treatment cleanses the body and soothes the mind. In total, this ritual lasts about an hour.


This treatment is US$40. You can book it here.


Deep Tissue Massage

In their catalog of massages, there is a huge choice. But the ultimate winner remains the Deep Tissue Massage. Thanks to this powerful massage, you recharge the body. Deep-seated tension and muscle tension are relieved using deep movements and stretching techniques concentrated on specific problem areas. Ideal when you spend hours at the computer or don't always work in the ideal posture.


Fun fact: you can choose how long your massage lasts. 30, 45 or 60 minutes. And you can combine at will! Tell them your preferences when booking and they will organize the best experience for you.


For a 45 minutes of Deep Tissue Massage, you pay US$50 and can be booked through this link.
