Known as Arab Baths, an Arabic Hammam is the term given to public baths. These baths have great historical and architectural importance and were constructed near mosques so that devotees could purify themselves before heading into the place of worship. They also became spots where men would socialize and discuss political and social issues. Arabic Hammams boast traditional architectural design and include domed shape ceilings, a changing room and an inner courtyard. Many of these Arabic Hammams can be found in the Middle East and those looking to visit the region and stay at luxury hotels can choose from the variety of accommodation options offered by Anantara Hotels Resorts & Spas.
