Hyatt Regency with Russian banya opens in Moscow

20 Dec 2017
Hyatt has opened its second property in Moscow, the Hyatt Regency Moscow Petrovsky Park, with a spa featuring traditional Russian bathing rituals.

The hotel's Olympus Fitness & Spa will offer treatments from skincare brands Thalgo and Clarins, as well as traditional procedures in the Russian bath with Natura Siberica cosmetics.

The ancient Russian custom of taking a hot steam bath combined with the contrast of an icy plunge tub is encouraged.

The spa promises “steam-bathing Slavic style”, with guests lying on hay with juniper, birch, oak and linden bath brooms, as well as “lordly” steam-bathing on meadow hay and juniper twig beds.

A fitness centre offers Pilates, cycling and yoga, as well as exercise rooms with the latest equipment from Technogym.

A 25m swimming pool features a steel-basin deck, custom-made by Bradford USA, along with a glass dome to provide natural lighting and space.

Located near the historic Petrovsky Park, the hotel offers 298 bedrooms and is Hyatt’s fourth Russian property.

“The hotel is designed to foster the connections that matter most, so our guests can work or play, collaborate or recharge, with everything they need right at their fingertips,” said general manager Jean-Francois Durand.
