Hammam with oriental tradition


Very present in the countries of North Africa, the hamman emits moist heat that encourage physical and psychological relaxation. The hammam of Dihan, private for our guests, makes you dream about travel, thanks to the natural beige and pink hues stone mosaics. Our hammam is, of course, a traditional one, which includes a refreshing shower unit.


Hammam offers a variable temperature between 5 ° C and 50 ° C, and fine droplets drip from the ceiling. The steam gives the impression of being in a fog. For these reasons, the hammam seems more bearable, but in reality, because of humidity, we feel more intensively moist heat than dry heat because water is a better conductor than air.


Sauna from Finnish origin


Just like the kota, wooden chalet of Dihan, the sauna comes from Finland and its heat is dry. Our sauna is private for our guests and is made of a small room, a sort of intimate cabin of untreated wood with terraced benches of clear wood. To maintain a good temperature (around 90 °C), the room is heated with a stove of volcanic stones which keep and diffuse heat. You can occasionally throw water on the stones. It evaporates instantly, to increase the intensity of the dry heat. A private space which allows you to change and alternate your sauna sessions with cold showers in the bathroom intended.
