A few weeks ago we published our Top 5 pampering tips for women.
Here, as part of our continuing Top 5 series, are our great pampering ideas for men.
A close shave…
Ask men what makes a trip to Fethiye special and many of them will tell you that it’s the thrill (or is it fear) of sitting in a comfortable chair at one of the town’s barbers and having a traditional shave with a cutthroat razor.
The lather, face massage, and shave with an old fashioned cutthroat razor, is only topped by the removal of whiskers in the nose and ears with a flick of a flame, conjured up by the barber from a sprig of cotton wool and a drop of cologne.
To finish it all off there’s a splash of Turkey’s legendary lemon cologne – but that isn’t on fire! Now you’re ready to start the day!
Get a haircut!
Don’t just have a shave… Fethiye’s barbers have not only mastered the art of the closest shave, ever, they also have a world-class skills when it comes to a haircut.
Turkish barbers also excel at head massages, so no matter what your style you’re guaranteed to leave these temples to male pampering feeling totally indulged.
All scrubbed up
Alternatively many of the larger hotels have more modern versions. Either way, this has to be a unique experience for any visitor. It’s a great way to detox and get scrubbed up at the same time. It doesn’t stop there. Afterwards, you’ll relax with a glass of tea afterwards, wrapped from top to toe in towels.
The ultimate massage
While at the hamam why not have a full body oil massage? These will unlock even the tightest stress-induced shoulder muscles, drivers back or computer users neck.
A wonderful alternative to sitting in an office, don’t you think?
A meaty feast
Meat is still considered to be a luxury in many parts of Turkey and when it is on the menu this carnivorous feast is really done in style.
Whether it’s the delicious, and amazing value for money döner kebab, wrapped in a flatbread (durum) in the town’s everyday market, or as part of a luxurious spread with kebabs a metre long at one of the local köfteci, this will certainly be a feast to remember.
