Holistic Wellness & Spa Experience

Thank you for your continued loyalty and support, even during these uncertain times. Our thoughts go out to all of you who have been affected by this unprecedented situation.

We have kept Banya No.1 open as long as possible. Due to the unfolding situation with Coronavirus, we’re very sad to have to let you know we have temporarily closed Public Main Banya No.1 until further notice.


Any unused bookings can be re-scheduled when we re-open or a voucher can be send to you if you prefer.

Vouchers, certificates, gift cards

If you have a Banya No.1 certificate or gift card, please be informed that we will extend the expiry date by 6 months. All cards purchased after 20 March 2020 will expire after 1 year (instead of the usual 6 months).


We will automatically freeze your membership for the duration of an official UK lockdown due to Covid-19 or more if required.


If you have any questions, please contact us at info@gobanya.co.uk or 02072536723.

Take care of yourselves, your loved ones and your communities. 

Please check back in a few weeks for the re-opening announcement of the Main Public Banya. 

When the time is right, we look forward to welcoming you back to Banya No.1.

“May the steam be with you”.

Banya No.1 is the first of its kind in the UK and brings Russia’s oldest and most popular wellness traditions to the capital. Being not your typical spa experience, it features authentic Russian steam sauna, plunge pool, hot stone and treatment rooms and a R & R area with traditional food & drinks. It’s social as well as private. The service is friendly and personal and Banya is open to both members and non-members. We offer a selection of wellness & spa treatments, with ingredients strictly natural and organic and prepared on the premises.

The key signature treatment is Parenie – an invigorating thermal massage, that uses leafy and fragrant bundle of birch, oak or eucalyptus twigs.

This process is quite intense and it’s not about slashing you with oak and birch leaves, but rather working the steam around you to warm you up so deep that you feel the need to plunge into the chilled water afterwards. The contrast causes release of adrenalin and stress hormones and immense invigoration that follows. It boosts your blood circulation and relieves tension and stress.

“And then it happened, the weird but natural high, a mind-expanding, worry-numbing, explosive exhilaration that surges through your being all the way to your core. It’s authentic, unexpected and will leave you buzzing so hard you’ll want to book the whole place for your next birthday party” – review by Emma Freud, LUXX Magazine, The Times.

Apart from Parenie we offer traditional and organic treatments such as Honey & Salt Scrub, Coffee Scrub, Body Wash, Aloe Vera Body Mask, Mud Wraps and Russian Healing Massage.

Russian Banya Etiquette


  • Use the wristband to secure your belongings in a locker and then, covering yoursellf in a towel, head to the Banya / wet area.
  • Put on a felt hat to prevent overheating and then enter the steam room for no more than 10 minutes on the first go. Sit or lie down on your towel.
  • Afterwards, take a luke-warm or cool shower and head to the lounge area where staff will show you your table. Relax, cool down and re-hydrate.
  • Over the course of your session our therapists will invite you to your treatments.
  • Repeat the10-minute visits to the steam room with 20-30 minute breaks in between.
  • After Parenie or your 2nd visit it is the right time for a splash of refreshing cold water from the buckets or an electrifying and invigorating dip in the icy cold plunge pool (please take a shower before).
  • After your treatments, you can order and enjoy traditional Russian food and drinks, to keep your hydration and electrolyte balance.

Do not rush and don’t overdo it. Take regular breaks from the steam room to rehydrate and cool down  in the lounge.
