The Bath House

Bath would no longer deserve its moniker if it weren't for the ultimate spa experience that is The Bath House: pampering the body and soothing the spirit has always been the town's raison d'ȴtre.
The Romans were very good with roads, but even better with knowing where to soak away stress. While the ancient spring still delivers 250,000 gallons of therapeutic waters each day through the original Roman tanks and drains, the pool is no longer in use. However, in its handsomely converted stable, The Royal Crescent hotel houses The Bath House, a multi-million dollar addition to the property, that is well worth every penny.

The Bath House is an unusual concept: a fusion of Bath and Japanese onsen styles, furnished with natural wood, bamboo, stone, and of course, the ubiquitous flow of water. The whole thing is unsurprisingly very Zen and peaceful - wholly conducive to unwinding and feeling very "at one" with the world. There are a number of cleverly tailored massage therapies, body wraps and a healthy range of complementary therapies up for grabs. Treatments can be combined to create a tailor-made retreat.

On the ground floor there is a large, heated relaxation pool, cold plunge tubs, steam and sauna rooms as well as dry and wet Karahafus (take a dictionary as well as a stressed body).
