Hg2 : The Hedonist

Sandunovsky Baths

The oldest and most famous of Moscow banyas, Sanduny, as it is nicknamed, is also the most expensive and prestigious. Its clientele ranges from politicians and businessmen to show-biz personalities. In terms of quality and variety, it is unrivalled.
rnThe antique interior is sumptuous and decorated in a flamboyant mix of Gothic, Baroque and Moorish styles, with Romanesque columns, chandeliers, stained-glass windows and mosaics. It is possible to rent a private cabin or room (a curtained-off area resembling the first class compartment of a train).
rnAn attendant brings you anything you need, from vodka and tea to towels and vennik (birch twigs, for beating yourself with…). They will also arrange times for a haircut, massage, pedicure or manicure. Best to get a Russian speaker or someone who is experienced in the ritual to accompany you!
rnThere is a great atmosphere of bonhomie at Sandunovsky and a visit is de rigueur for the hedonist. Prices for a two-hour session range from 400 roubles to a private banya for 3,700 roubles (for 12 people) per hour.
