Our objective was to select a unique spa experience; fortunately, Banya fit the bill. The three-hour routine was relaxing and left us refreshed. We changed into bikinis, and were ushered to the hot sauna. After a bit of cooling down in the Lounge area, one by one, we experienced the (detoxifying) Parenie treatment. All the perspiration from and the heat built up within our bodies were cooled down with contrast bathing and a plunge into an icy 8C pool. Unbelievably refreshing! We chose another treatment, the full body and face mud wrap, and this is recommendable too. What complements the therapies is the warmth of every member of staff. The spa also has a modest kitchen that serves Russian dishes, drinks and alcohol. In my opinion, a simple meal caps this spa trip nicely. All in all, about 90gbp per person off-peak for this set of treatments and a simple meal. Tips: Bring shampoo, conditioner, personal skincare. The experience is more fun when shared with good company. Will return!
