Madaba Turkish Bath information
If you’ve had just about enough mosaics for one day, you could always enjoy closely knit tiles of a modern kind at MadabaTurkish Bath. These small and cosy baths are clean and intimate but opening times, like elsewhere in Madaba, are flexible. Call ahead to reserve the baths for an hour or so. Women can choose a female or male attendant and couples can share the facilities if they wish. You begin with a shower, sweat it out for a few minutes in the steam room, relax on a heated marble slab, lounge in the Jacuzzi and finally lie down at the mercy of the masseur. If you behave nicely, you’ll be rewarded with mint tea in the comfortable majlis (lounge) area.
