Just thought i would post this for anyone heading to marmaris or around there ho has now been put off going to the hamam. I would say do not be put off in the slightest it is a really nice low cost way to pamper yourself.Plus at the end of a hot day you come out feeling squeaky clean. I have been to the 'touristy' one in marmaris, the non touristy one in Marmaris and the non touristy one in Bodrum as well as a tourist one in Olu deniz and have never felt uncomfortable in any of them.
I have generally found that when you go in you are ushered to a changing room where you can change into your bikini or bathing costume, bikinis are better when it comes to the massage later and to the scrub down but my bikini wearing days are over and my tankini did not pose a problem.

I have been to the 'touristy' one in marmaris, the non touristy one in Marmaris and the non touristy one in Bodrum as well as a tourist one in Olu deniz and have never felt uncomfortable in any of them.
I have generally found that when you go in you are ushered to a changing room where you can change into your bikini or bathing costume, bikinis are better when it comes to the massage later and to the scrub down but my bikini wearing days are over lol and my tankini did not pose a problem.
once changed you are taken to the steam room where there are little sinks all around the room where you can obtain cold water and use the little dishes provided to douse yourself in water. Once you have spent some time in here relaxing yodelling ( yes I have heard it all done) and generally carrying on in the fantastic echoing room the man or woman but my experience is its generally a man, comes in and then scrubs you down using a loofah cloth. Dont worry yout tan is safe but it does get rid of the burnt bits! After that he then fills what looks like a pillowcase with soap and uses this to cover you in foam and give you a gentle massage. This is when the ability to undo your bikini strap is useful as you then get the most out of the back massage.
Once that is done you are left to shower, still wearing your bikini etc and if you want take my advice and take in some shampoo and do your hair too.
After that you are wrapped in some what look like dishclothes, I am sure they have a proper name, and are taken to an area where you can relax and have a clod drink to replenish the liquid you lost in the hot steam room.
You are then led to the massage area where again usually a man will give you a very good massage using baby oil ( hence the reason to do your hair so you don't then have to shower and wash of the nice oil)
Do not worry about it being a man they are all very nice and totally professional. I have sometimes been on my own when I have gone and have not felt at all uncomfortable. If you do meet a chancer who insists you bare all at the front a nice smile and firm no usually is the answer.
I don't like the touristy ones they do have a jacuzzi you can also use but that is not the traditional way and also you feel like you are on a conveyor belt and it is generally a noisy rabble and not at all relaxing.
Sorry to have gone on at length but I hope this helps and if in Marmaris I highly recommend the one nearest the marina with the parrot outside called Pasha, please say hi to it if you go!!
