Embrace World Wellness Weekend

World Wellness Weekend is an annual global celebration that unites individuals in pursuit of better health and well-being. This year’s event promises enriching experiences and activities that enhance physical, mental, and emotional wellness.

An exhilarating thermal experience

Discover a haven of authentic thermal wellness at Banya No.1, where ancient rituals and bespoke services create an unparalleled experience. Step into our traditional banya-inspired bathhouse, the first of its kind in London, and immerse yourself in the art of Parenie – our signature thermal ritual using leafy bundles of birch, oak, and eucalyptus twigs – designed to rejuvenate your senses and leave you feeling refreshed.

Global ambassador

We are delighted to announce that the founder of Banya No.1, Andrei Fomin, has been appointed as the Global Ambassador for Banyas at World Wellness Weekend. This prestigious role recognises Andrei’s dedication to promoting wellness and his commitment to fostering community through transformative thermal experiences.

During the World Wellness Weekend, our three locations, including an international branch in Tbilisi, will host a diverse range of events.
