Rixos Royal Spa
A gorgeous swimming pool, fitness club, Finnish sauna, Turkish hammam, solarium and three Thai masseuses make up the Rixos Royal Spa, a true oasis of calm and relaxation at the centre of Astana’s Left Bank. The relaxation room and Vitamin Bar only add to its impressive list of amenities. Massages start from 7,900 KZT, but fork out a bit more and you can have two pairs of hands working on you at the same time. There’s a Zen-like atmosphere, and the attached hotel is ideal for those who can’t be bothered to leave after being pummelled to within an inch of their lives. Entrance charges range from 7,000 KZT during the week to 11,000 KZT at weekends.
