What you'll do

Welcome to Chill House Nudgee!

Upon arrival you will be greeted with traditional Russian tea made from cranberry (klukva) or black current (smorodina). I have got this recipe from my babushka, it’s very tasty! While you enjoying your tea you will learn you how to use authentic Russian Banya. Traditional Banya is very important part of Russian culture. I will tell you about history, traditions and significance of Russian Banya.

The Banya will be prepared for you with traditional blend of essential oils and unique twist of my own recipe addition. This aromatherapy will help you rejuvenate, refresh and cleanse your senses.

For full authentic experience the “venik” (Banya broom made of oak leafs) could be used (I would highly encourage you to try). I will personally prepare it and show you how to use it. This experience will show you the healing power of the special Russian whisk. And of course you will wear famous Banya Hat.

Once your body warm and relax it’s the time for refreshing pool or outdoor shower! This contrast of temperatures will help you to relax your mind and body and is the most important benefit.

There will be 2-3 sessions of Russian Banya and if you feel like more there is always an option to extend your stay, use Siberian body scrub or start fireplace (and shushlik).

I am so excited to share this unique and authentic experience with you!

See you soon

I am from Siberia and I love Banya! It’s such an important part of my life! It helps me relax and rejuvenate. I have over 15 years of experience organising and participating in Russian Traditional Banya sessions.I have been looking for authentic Banya experience in Australia for a long time and with no luck me and partner have decided to build our own Banya/Sauna.

Originally we did it for ourselves but with all our family and friends absolutely loving it we have realised that we have to share this experience with others!

No matter what nationality you are, you will love our Banya!
