Morroccan Month in October is a collaborative initiative of four spas in Victoria which have steam room facilities:
- Aurora Spa
- Hepburn Bath house and Spa
- Peninsula Hot Springs
- RACV Torquay Spa
Peninsula Hot Springs Packages: The Hammam
The Hammam, also often referred to as the Turkish Steam Bath, offers the warmth, atmosphere and cultural experience of the traditional Turkish experience. Built into the side of the hill at the base of the bathing gully in the Bath House, the dome-shaped Hammam uses steam and heat to help the body open pores and release toxins as part of a traditional cleansing ritual. Hammams (with the spelling Hammam in Morocco and Hamam in Turkey)originated in the middle East and have thousands of years of history.
The Hammam is an incredibly important part of Moroccan culture and life. Men, women and children will visit their local Hammam at least once a week, and spend two or three hours there (sometimes even longer!!), catching up on gossip with their friends, and following the long rituals for cleansing their bodies until their skin glows.

Based on an ancient Moroccan ritual, this steam treatment includes an olive soap wash, full body exfoliation, mud cocoon and warm Argan oil scalp massage to cleanse, detoxify and relax. Traditional techniques and herbal elements provide an authentic experience. Duration: 60 minutes
