Our Facility 

Banya 5 is an environment which promotes wellness, vitality and rejuvenation of the soul in the tradition of Turkish hammams, Russian banyas, Finnish saunas and Japanese bath houses. Join us at Banya 5 and immerse yourself in this unique sensory experience.

parilka oven


Tons of concrete and brick generate a rich, radiant heat offering an experience that far exceeds traditional saunas.  The deeply penetrating heat relaxes muscles and regulates breathing to provide long lasting relief of stored tension.  Oak leaf “veniks” are provided* to perform the traditional “platza”, a treatment that tones the skin and stimulates circulation.   *When available, veniks are provided by Banya 5 on Sunday and Tuesday evenings, after 8pm.  

steam room

Turkish Steam Room

A robust steam brushes over fresh eucalyptus boughs to produce a nourishing, moist 113 degree heat providing significant benefit to the skin and respiratory system.  The moist heat decreases respiratory congestion to soothe, relax and ease breathing.  The steam also opens skin pores to help the body expel toxins and rehydrate dry skin.

salt water tepid pool

Salt Water Tepid Pool

Mimicking the salinity of Puget Sound, the 87 degree mineral salt bath provides many benefits. This pool decreases muscle tension and increases relaxation by being “held” in the buoyant, mineral infused water. The salt water also increases the absorption of minerals lost in the sweat while increasing circulation.

cold plunge

Cold Plunge Pool

The internal organs are particularly rejuvenated by the contrast of radiant heat and invigorating cold. Cold water plunging is an important part of hydrotherapy, greatly benefiting the circulatory system. Immersion in the cold water constricts skin pores and blood vessels that have been dilated from the heat to create an invigorating pumping action of the venous system to flush metabolic wastes and toxins.

hot pool

Hot Pool

Powerful hydro jets penetrate joints and muscle groups. 104 degree water soothes the entire body whether you appreciate it for sports medicine benefits or simply relaxing.

tea lounge

Tea Lounge & movement Room

Complimentary custom blended herbal teas and lemon water are provided in this relaxing escape from the heat, cold and steam therapies.  Read, play board games or just relax before preparing for one of our specialized body treatments or simply returning to the spa area for another round.  For a more serene environment, you can stretch or just relax in our nap room.

Despite its stylish steel columns, glittering glass tile and ribbons of mahogany, Banya 5 is intended to be a social, communal experience open to all and guests are welcome to linger for hours.
