The beet soup is insanely delicious. Went full-on relaxation mode with a banya, whisking, honey salt massage, and oil massage. Super chilled out.

Yasmin Mahmoud

I had a great experience and would highly recommend Banya! The staff were attentive, the steam room did wonders, the food was delicious and my massage was fantastic! Will be coming back!

Sherina Downes

Went for a spa day with my girls and had a lovely experience, we would recommend having a range of their treatments.

Tatyana C

It was amazing and exactly what you needed after a long weekend of walking! Massage, steam, sauna and plunge pool – wow! It was so invigorating and relaxing at the same time that you felt like you were flying away to another planet.


Had a great birthday here, very good food, friendly staff (important as it was my first time), plenty of time given overall.

Johanna Rhyins

Love love love this Banya! Clean, friendly, traditional. Just go. The sauna is hot hot and the waters are cold cold! The way they should be.

Bruna Giribaldi

MAGICAL! I did this for my birthday and now I’m obsessed. The sea buckthorn tea is DELICIOUS, the food is so wonderful, the massage was exactly what I wanted and the perenie and honey&salt scrub were such a different and amazing combo – and really perfect together! Everyone was lovely and unb…

Silje Therese Løken

An incredible experience. I always tend to explore different spa / sauna places when I travel and this was without a doubt one of the best and most exciting experiences I have had. Recommends everyone to take the full experience package.


Great experience – friendly staff – clean – peaceful – parenie was a fantastic experience – best honey and salt scrub (felt lighter afterwards)! Would definitely return.

Rhiannon Llewellyn

Absolutely outstanding experience. Went to Banya with my husband and we left feeling like we’d had a week’s holiday. Had the most incredible scrub/massage with Mikhail – probably the best I’ve ever had.

Amanda Forsyth

We had a fantastic first visit! Highly recommend the parenie experience (very unique and invigorating), and their massage therapist was incredible. The space is quite small, so the capacity is low which makes the experience much more relaxing than other spas I’ve visited.

Claire Plastow

Really loved my spa at Banya No.1. The first time i’ve had a russian spa and i really enjoyed it. The vibe is relaxed but great quality. The staff are plentiful and very on it, you don’t need to worry as a first timer. From the fun sauna hats to the birch branch routine and the delicious food eve…

Jennifer Houghton

Amazing Banya experience super clean, friendly staff highly recommend.

Tatiana Titova

Not sure what I love more – the banya itself or the food there 🙂


What can I say … I had given up on enjoying myself in the UK, but that was until I visited this banya. I had such an AMAZING time from start until finish.

Will Irlam

Had such a great, relaxing morning here. Will definitely be back. Thanks guys!

Nico M

Fantastic experience at this typical Russian spa. I’ve been wanting to come for years and finally came after being gifted a Gold package voucher.

Heathrow Apartments

Always relaxing atmosthere. Great place to meet with friends.

Ezgi Sarikcioglu

Probably the hottest and definitely the best spa of the UK!

Petar Agbaba

Great experience as ever at Banya! Very welcoming and more importantly very relaxing! Getting the Parenie is a must! But now I would also suggest adding the massage too… You will leave the Banya so relaxed and happy believe me!


What is Banya?

Simply the best place to come and relax!

Banya is a Russian way of sauna and is the ideal way to relax, release tension and stress. It promises to leave you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and full of energy.

You are always welcome to visit on your own, but banya is best experienced as a shared time with family and friends.

A typical visit to a banya incorporates various treatments – and all are great for your total relaxation and wellbeing.

First, you will have a time in the steam rooms, warming your body and starting the detox process. Next, this will be following by one or several treatments – Parenie, massages or other body treatments are all available. Finally – and equally important – you will end your visit spending time relaxing in our lounge area with food and drinks.

What are the benefits of Banya?

The health benefits of banya are both physical and mental.

– Boosting the immune system
– Improving blood circulation
– Muscle recovery
– Healthy skin
– Detox
– Weight loss
– Reduce stress
– Improve sleep
– Improve mental health

Is Banya the same as Sauna?

A banya is very similar to a sauna. Russian banya and Fninish sauna are both traditional forms of bathing and relaxation. However, there are several differences between the two: Banya (a Russian type of sauna) has a high humidity of around 40-60%. The Finnish sauna, on the other hand, is very dry. Humidity is kept very low, 5-10% only. However, the temperature inside the sauna can be much higher – typically around 90°C. Typically, the temperature in Banya is kept around 70°С. Read more in Blog.

What can I expect when I visit?

A warm welcome – whether visiting us for the first time, or as an old friend, banya is always an inviting and open place. It is a place of relaxation and rejuvenation and our friendly staff are always on hand to advise, so don’t be shy, especially if this is a new experience for you. They can advise you on the best treatments for you, and guide you through your visit.

Allow yourself 3 hours or so for your visit – you will not want to leave in a hurry!

Have a look around the website and please do call us if you have any particular questions or concerns.

How hot is the banya?

Banya steam rooms are maintained at around 70°C – a little cooler than an average sauna, but remember that it is not a ‘dry’ air – there is high humidity.

It is this combination of heat and steam that creates the ideal banya environment. You can come and go from the steam rooms as you wish, to ensure you remain comfortable at all times.

What is Parenie?

Parenie is an invigorating leaf and steam treatment, massaging with bunches of oak, birch, and eucalyptus leaves (these are called veniks). Sweeping movements with the veniks draws down superheated steam across your body. Directly after this, you plunge into icy cold water; the sudden contrast in temperature improves your circulation, relieves muscle tension and helps the body detox. Many find it incredibly mentally stimulating.

What other treatments are there?

We have a full range of massage, and body and skin treatments, which will leave your body and mind feeling amazing. Here are more details on all our treatments.

Is it best to book in advance?

Usually, yes to avoid disappointment, as we limit visitor numbers to ensure that everyone has the space to relax and fully enjoy their experience. We take bookings for individuals and groups of all sizes, so give us a call and let us know when you want to come along.

Can I book a treatment on the day?

We understand that plans change – so we will always do our best to accommodate any last minute requests. In return, we ask that you be understanding if we cannot always accommodate these during busy periods.

It is always best to book treatments in advance, to ensure you receive all the treatments that you are wanting.

Can I book a private booth in the relaxation lounge?

We have a variety of booths and seating areas in the relaxation lounge. We do our best to accommodate specific requests, but at busy times, seating will be allocated according to group sizes, to ensure everyone is comfortable.

What should I bring when I come to banya?

Come along with your swimming costume and, if you have them, a pair of flip-flops. Swimming costumes are required for all mixed sessions (no exceptions). These are optional if you have booked a single-gender visit – for those you may wear your costume or not, however you feel most comfortable. Flip-flops may be purchased from Reception if needed – they are required as the wet floors can be slippery.

You may also bring toiletries such as soap or shampoo if you prefer, but this is not necessary as everything else you need is provided.

Can I bring children?

Banya sessions are available to anyone over the age of 16. Children over the age of 16 are welcome in Banya, but please remember – parents/ guardians are responsible for them and their behaviour during your visit and must fill a consent form for minors.

Can I visit if I am pregnant or have another medical condition?

If you have any medical concerns – including pregnancy – then please consult your GP before visiting us. We are not able to advise on specific conditions.

Do you have parking?

We do not have our own parking area, but you can find on-street parking close by. We are also situated conveniently close to Chiswick Park tube station (a 3-minute walk).

Where can I find your food and drink menu?

Our full menu of food and drinks can be found here.

Do you have a bar on the premises?

Yes, our relaxation lounge has a fully licensed bar. Whilst a little alcohol with food is a most enjoyable way to end your visit, please do not drink before your booking.

We reserve the right to refuse any of our services to anyone appearing intoxicated, for the safety of all our guests.

Do you take bookings for parties and other events?

Yes – we can accommodate private parties corporate events and many other group bookings. Please call us to discuss your requirements.

We also have our exclusive Karelia Lounge package which can be booked for private events.

What are your cancellation and booking policies?

If you need to reschedule or cancel a booking, please call us as soon as you can. The earlier you let us know, the easier it is for us to accommodate your requirements.

What happens if I am late for my booking?

Please call us and let us know! If it is at all possible, we will amend and extend your booking. At our busiest times, this may not be possible, but if we can – we will.
