Enter WORLD SPA’s Grand Banya – the largest banya in the US – and be prepared for a completely new experience. What you’ll hear is a near-constant thwack of venik, bunches of fragrant birch or oak tree twigs, against skin. This is key to an authentic banya experience. The venik massages the body, opens the pores and releases essential oils. A sensory experience not to be missed!
Don’t enter our Grand Banya expecting absolute peace and quiet. This is a communal, rejuvenating sweat experience to invigorate mind, body and soul. (The Petite Banya next door is recommended for those looking to sweat in peace.)
Banyas are Eastern Europe’s answer to the Finnish sauna. As is tradition, WORLD SPA’s banyas are constructed from rough kelo wood, a pine tree that naturally weathers into a rare piece of art and gives off a unique, relaxing scent. And banyas have much higher humidity levels and a lot more action.

How to use
Before entering the banya, please have a quick shower. We recommend starting with a 5-10 minute session, followed by a cold bucket shower. The second session is when you’ll want to use the venik. Massage yourself or have someone else do it. If you’re new to it, there’s no need to be too aggressive. In fact, the venik can simply be used to waft hot air and humidity towards you without any actual “thwacking! Then enjoy a cooling off period – you’ve earned it! And PLEASE drink plenty of cleansing water/ tea.
Benefits
  • Opens and clears the respiratory system
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Stimulates the immune system
  • Reduces muscle tension and pain
  • Deeply cleanses the skin
  • Detoxifies the body

If you’re looking for a more private and peaceful banya experience, the Petite Banya is the place for you. You’ll still want to use the authentic venik, bunches of fragrant birch and oak tree twigs, to gently massage your skin and increase circulation, but we ask you to be mindful of those around you and keep conversations more muted here than in the Grand Banya.

How to use
Before entering the banya, please have a quick shower. We recommend starting with a 5-10 minute session, followed by a cold bucket shower. The second session is when you’ll want to use the venik (hit yourself or get someone else to do it!). Then enjoy a cooling off period – you’ve earned it!

In Europe, sauna is rarely a solo pursuit. Instead, it’s an opportunity to relax and unwind with family and friends. Mind, body and spirit are enriched by spending time together in the dry heat of a traditional Finnish sauna.

At WORLD SPA, our Event Sauna takes communal sweating to a new level. Sauna Masters perform the theatrical ritual of sauna aufguss, artfully swirling and twirling towels that push warm, aromatic bursts of heat around the room. Essential oils and music are carefully curated to create a completely unique experience. Your senses awaken as invisible clouds of energy catapult towards you, creating an unbelievable inner and outer body experience.

When the aufguss ritual is not in session, the Event Sauna should be enjoyed like any traditional Finnish sauna.

How to use
Before entering the Event Sauna, please take a shower, then find a comfortable position (the higher up you sit, the hotter it will be). Aufguss rituals are not only soul enhancing but have the added benefit of distracting you from the heat. However, don’t ever hesitate to leave the sauna if you’re feeling at all uncomfortable. After 10 to 15 minutes, the session will be over and you will leave the sauna sweat drenched. Please head straight to one of the experiential showers nearby to cool down. You may want to follow that with a cold plunge or a visit to the snow room for a gentle cool down.
Benefits
  • Stress reduction and better sleep
  • Improves cardiovascular and heart health
  • Regular sauna use can reduce the risk of hypertension
  • Soothes aches and pains in muscles and joints
  • Detoxifies the body
  • Improves mental focus
  • Opens and cleanses pores

The Clay & Hay sauna needs to be seen, felt, smelt and even heard. This is as close as you’ll come to finding a Temazcal, the popular sweat lodge made out of clay and hay adobe found originally in South America, right here in New York. The thick adobe walls are handmade and infuse the sauna with the genuine warmth of Mother Nature.

This sauna is equipped with a specialized heater custom made for WORLD SPA in Germany. A mesmerizing, ceremonial bucket rotation will be performed every 3 hours by attendants, pouring water infused with healing and therapeutic herbs over the hot volcanic rocks, creating a hissing and cracking sound, while increasing the humidity and intensifying the aromatherapy impact.

The natural scents combined with the heat reflected off the clay and hay walls is incredibly curative. In Mayan cultures, this special steam bath ritual is said to purify the body and soul and is used to this day in rituals for improving both physical and mental health.

How to use
Before entering the room, please take a shower. Then do a 5- to 10-minute session followed by a shower and a second session and another shower. If at any time you feel too hot, feel free to step out.
Benefits
  • Increases blood circulation
  • Stress reduction and better sleep
  • Improves cardiovascular and heart health
  • Regular sauna use can reduce the risk of hypertension
  • Soothes aches and pains in muscles and joints

WORLD SPA’s infrared sauna is pretty as a picture, crafted artfully from Alder wood with infrared heating elements placed under the benches and targeted to treat your back and spine with maximum heat and minimum sweat.

And, because infrared saunas are not as hot or as humid as our saunas or banyas, this is the one room where it’s okay to grab a selfie of you and your friends enjoying your spa day. (Please be mindful not to impose upon our other guests as you “strike a pose”.)

Infrared saunas use light to create heat at a lower and more comfortable temperature. The infrared band of light penetrates your body directly, without warming the air around you. Because it’s not red hot inside an infrared sauna, most are able to withstand the heat longer, getting even more of the therapeutic effects of this deep heat penetration.

Benefits of infrared sauna bathing are extensive, including helping to relieve inflammation, stiffness and soreness by increasing blood circulation. The deep, penetrating infrared heat relaxes muscles and delivers oxygen-rich blood to the muscles for a faster recovery.

How to use
Because this room doesn’t get as hot as a traditional sauna, you can enjoy it for longer periods of time (25 to 45 minutes). Before, during and after, be sure to drink plenty of water or tea. If it’s your first visit, you may not necessarily break a sweat but it will still be good for you! After visiting the infrared sauna, it’s important to relax and cool down and then take a shower.
Benefits
  • Natural immune system booster
  • Relieves inflammation
  • Eases muscle tension, aches and pain
  • Increases blood circulation
  • Quicker muscle recovery

Enter the Moroccan Hammam and be transported to an authentic Marrakesh bathhouse, complete with the musky, earthy scents of Morocco. Handmade, brightly colored tiles imported from Morocco adorn the walls, benches and the center “belly stone.” This room is airy and bright and has less humidity than the Turkish Hamam, making it feel slightly less intense.

You’ll notice a shower inside this room that can be used at any time to cool down during your session or on your way out to prep you for your cool down of choice.

How to use
Though not as hot as our saunas or banyas, the Moroccan Hammam offers similar benefits but with less intense heat and should also be followed first by a shower and then by an even more cooling treatment, like a cold plunge or a visit to the snow room.

The word “hammam” literally translates to “bathroom” or “bathhouse,” which were introduced by conquering Romans centuries ago. Once the Romans departed, the Turks made these bathhouses their own, focused on cleansing both the body and soul for religious rituals. WORLD SPA’s Turkish Hammam is a modern take on the original, featuring beautiful Carrara Blanco marble and traditional Turkish tiles. At the center is the “belly stone,” an area traditionally reserved for scrubs and treatments, but ours features a large, magical sphere that releases steam, sound, aroma and colored light therapy (or chromatherapy). Bask in authentic Turkish music while enjoying the healing properties and energy-rebalancing effects, of light therapy.

While the original purpose of Turkish hammams was for cleansing, socializing and relaxation are integral to a full hammam experience. The hot air temperature and warmth of all the surfaces help relieve muscle pain and promote mental relaxation, while the high humidity of WORLD SPA’s Turkish Hammam should produce intense sweating, encouraging detoxification.

The aroma sauna is one of WORLD SPA’s hidden treasures (once you find it, you may never want to leave). The scent of the room hits you first. A natural spicy, woody aroma of juniper infuses the room, thanks to juniper wood cuts positioned on the wall near the heater, while bunches of herbs hung from the ceiling, give off a symphony of glorious, natural scents. The room is constructed of no less than four different natural woods, including cedar benches and oak panels.

Water infused with healing and therapeutic herbs are regularly poured over the heater’s hot volcanic rocks, creating a captivating hissing and cracking sound, while increasing the humidity and intensifying the aromatherapy impact.

Snow Room

14°F To 32°F

An important part of the sweat bathing cycle is cooling down – not everyone loves the shock of dipping into a plunge in an icy, cold pool. If that’s you, then the gentle cooling effect of our snow room is just what you’re looking for!

The philosophy behind our snow room stems from Finland, home of the sauna. Finns would typically end a sauna session with a cleansing and invigorating “roll in the snow.” There are many health benefits to incorporating hot/cold contrast therapy into your spa visit, including a boost to your metabolism and immune system. In addition, the cold dry air of a snow room offers additional health properties by promoting respiratory health, improving blood circulation, and alleviating sore, inflamed muscles.

How to use
After spending time in a hot sauna, your body will be fully warmed and muscles mobile and relaxed, perhaps leaving you with a feeling of fatigue. Heading to the snow room to cool down will reinvigorate your senses, and bring your body back to its natural temperature. This is an important and necessary step in the experience. Let your body gently cool down for 3-5 minutes, feel free to pick up the powdery snow to rub on your legs and arms. Then relax or lie down for 15 to 20 minutes while hydrating.
Benefits
  • Speeds up metabolism and burns fat
  • Decreases inflammation
  • Improves circulation
  • Soothes sore muscles
  • Supports respiratory health
  • Helps build immunity
Himalayan Salt Room

Himalayan Salt Room

The origins of salt therapy, also known as halotherapy, dates back to medieval times when ancient healers recommended salt inhalation to treat respiratory problems. It gained more credibility when doctors observed that salt mine workers in Poland exhibited fewer respiratory illnesses.

The benefits of halotherapy are wide-ranging. Salt levels effect our cell activity, energy, blood and sugar levels. A natural disinfectant, salt is antimicrobial and antibacterial and contains 84 elements and trace elements found in the human body.

Enter WORLD SPA’s Himalayan Salt Room and experience the benefits of dry salt therapy. The microscopic, naturally antibacterial salt particles are gently inhaled, cleaning out the lungs, reducing inflammation and breaking down mucus. Salt inhalation therapy is used to treat asthma, allergies, bronchitis, sinus congestion and even COPD. In addition, salt particles can improve skin conditions, like acne and even eczema.

And here’s a fun fact: salt can make you happy! Salt particles produce negative ions which, in turn, cause your body to release serotonin, something that is known to improve overall mood.

Halotherapy increases blood circulation, delivering oxygen-rich blood to all muscles and joints, stimulating the healing process for all joint and muscle related ailments, providing pain relief.

How to use
  • Supports the immune, nervous, and lymphatic systems
  • Clears lung passages; promotes better breathing
  • Improved physical fitness and mental wellness
  • Stress reduction
  • Improves sleep
  • Treats skin conditions
  • Removes of toxins and allergens from the body
