Nevsky Prospekt, Mikhailovskaya Ulitsa 1/7
Treatment and facilities: The Russian banya is a traditional style of sauna that dates back hundreds of years involving a steam sauna and ‘whisk bathing’, in which guests are lightly stroked with bunches of dried leaves and branches called a venik, a process designed to improve the blood circulation.
These uniquely Russian experiences are available at the Saun Club; one of the premier spas in St Petersburg. The club is available for hire for a completely private experience, and the helpful staff will go to great lengths to ensure that everything is to your satisfaction. The club also offers more traditional types of massage and saunas, as well as a large pool and Jacuzzi. In order to secure a private session advanced booking is recommended. Special treatment: Traditional Russian banya with whisk bathing.
Treatment and facilities: Bliss Spas have established a worldwide reputation for cuttingedge health and beauty treatments.
A trip to the Bliss Spa at W St Petersburg promises to be a unique experience; jazz music plays out of the speakers and ‘movie-while-you-mani’ stations provide entertainment while you wait, providing spa guests with an atmosphere that is as fun as it is relaxing. Of course, there are still plenty of ways to relax, with steam rooms, saunas, a Vichy shower and elegant B&B Italia furnishings, as well as indulgent services such as the superrelaxing Blissage 75TM and red carpet Triple Oxygen Treatment. Signature treatment: Triple Oxygen Treatment, hot salt scrub and the hot cream manicure.
