The Indonesian Archipelago has a long history of contact between Chinese and Arab traders, who introduced plants, herbs and spices; bringing insights from Indian Ayurvedic, Chinese and Greek medicine and Arab healing practices. The traditional Indonesian Jamu sellers are a result of these enormous influences and today these people are best described as “walking-talking pharmacies”.

 

Cultural traditions were adopted as the traders traversed the region and one such ritual is the Hammam. With its origins in Turkey, MesaStila is proud to house South East Asia’s only authentic Hammam, where steam bathing combines functionality with decadent cleansing rituals.
