Thermal Spa Experience

Thermal Spa Experience

Our thermal spa therapies are at the heart of Spa Experience by Better, providing health benefits that have been enjoyed for thousands of years.

You’ll find the combination of heat followed by cold can help to destress, relieve aches, pains and stiff joints, relax your muscles, detox your skin and aid respiration and blood flow. We offer a wide range of traditional thermal bath spa therapies, including:




A relaxing heated seating area, the Hammam is the perfect introduction to the thermal spa experience and can also be used as space to enjoy in between experiences.

NOT available at Kensington.

Relaxation lounge


An oasis of calm. This quiet sanctuary is a designated area for pure relaxation while taking delight in complimentary infused water and fresh fruit.

NOT available at Swiss Cottage


A ‘dry’ heat treatment in a wood-lined room with a temperature reaching 90 C, designed to induce perspiration in order to cleanse the body of impurities.



It is recommended that you alternate heat treatments with brief immersion in the traditional Plunge Pool. Each dip in the icy pool will improve circulation by cooling the body; this can also improve cardiovascular health.

Available at Bethnal Green and Old Street only.

Spa Experience Monsoon Shower


Several jets release scented water, creating contrasting shower experiences. These jets range from a warm tropical downpour to cool water, releasing a fine Scotch mist. 

NOT available at Swiss Cottage or Welwyn
Spa Experience Ice Fountain


The Ice Fountain produces ice flakes to be rubbed on the body which stimulates circulation and facilitates the cooling of the body.

NOT available at Epsom, Swiss Cottage & Welwyn Garden City


Based on a system dating back to Roman times, these hot, dry air rooms vary from moderate to intense heats (you can move from the Tepidarium “warm room”, to the Caldarium “hot room” and Laconium “hottest room”) and are designed to relax the muscles and relieve the pain of rheumatism.

Available at Bethnal Green and Old Street only.

Hydrotherapy pool


Multiple jets working on different muscle groups to pummel away any stress and fatigue from the body.

Available at Belfast | Epsom | Kensington | Waltham Forest | Welwyn | Wimbledon 

Crystals Square
