Dan Taub

An oasis in the middle of Central London. Amazing Banya with very hot steam from water but dry heat. The Parenie is great to get your blood circulation flowing. Go Banya!

Theo Llewellyn

Such a fantastic experience.  The Banya was exceptional, one of the most relaxing spa Ive experience. It did not feel at all pretentious and instead really felt like a real therapeutic place to rest, rejuvenate. The parenie was amazing. Will definitely be back.

Maria Milko

We recently visited Banya No.1 in Chiswick as a group of eight, a mix of men and women, and had a fantastic time in the Karelia Room. Our experience  was exceptional. The combination of excellent service, high-quality facilities made it unforgettable. We also enjoyed the lovely food menu, which o…

Kate Brown

My partner and I visit Banya No.1 regularly! It’s about favourite place to relax, the staff are all so friendly and the food is so delicious too! Highly recommended!

Debra Luker

My daughters and I had the most fabulous time. The experience was so unique, we loved everything. We felt reborn and left energised and happy. I had booked the wrong day, everyone went out of their way for us and worked so hard. Friendly, caring, explaining clearly the process.

Rachael Monaghan

Great experience, including face mask and massage. I particularly loved the ice bath and how well looked after I was throughout my time there, as I was on my own and didn’t quite know what to expect! Will definitely be back again!

Susan Signorile

What an experience and enjoy every moment. The staff were really friendly and looked after you throughout the experience. I’ll definitely come back.

Danuta Nicole

My son had bought me a voucher towards a Banya experience and I was not quite sure what to expect. I went on my own on a Wednesday (ladies’ day) and was impressed with both the experience and the professionalism of the staff. Will be returning.

Joseph Gorzeman

This was my first visit to Banya and let me tell you it is #1. Everything from the booking process to the final steam was perfect. I opted for the full experience and it was brilliant. A must try for any occasion.

Limareva Ella

What a marvel was this experience in Banya No.1.- Chiswick. It offers a cosy atmosphere and fantastic food. Parenie, which is the ultimate banya experience topped with a massage are the must-dos. I loved the rejuvenating temperature contrast (from heated sauna to ice tub).

Irina Shmakova

Visited Banya No1. in Chiswick and had an absolutely authentic experience! From Parenie and massages to the delicious food, every aspect was spot on. The borsch, salmon, lard with garlic, pies, and pelmeni were all bursting with flavour🤪But the ultimate highlight was definitely the cold shower bu…

Anna Evtifeeva

It was our first experience in London banyas – and it was the best. We were delighted to receive great service and support. Shouldn’t forget about the menu, which was fingers-licking-good. Highly recommended!

Jonathan Monk

Superb! I will be back.

Banya No.1 in Chiswick is superb. By all means it’s worth paying it a visit to get your body and mind cleaned from everything. Massage is great by the way, best recommended.

Lucy Rosa

Banya rocks! They’ve got a great set up, lovely staff and all the services were fantastic. Honestly one of the best massages I’ve had in my life.

Serena Bolton

As always I enjoyed a wonderful experience at the Banya and the Parenie, salt&honey scrub, massage treatments are fabulous.

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

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.
