At Banya No.1, we take wellness to the next level. Our exhilarating thermal experience combines ancient wellness rituals, authentic facilities and a bespoke service. Based on the thermal cycle of hot, cold, rest, and repeat – a centuries-old wellness tradition practised in Northern Europe – you will have the opportunity to learn the secrets of this unique experience and leave feeling distressed and reborn.

The workshop is perfect for socialising and learning new wellness techniques, plus it can be an engaging team building experience as a part of the corporate workshop.
