Malaysian Spa Festival at Thermae Bath Spa Wednesday 22 April - Sunday 17 May 2009


There are no membership or joining fees to use Thermae Bath Spa. Spa sessions in the New Royal Bath cannot be booked in advance unless you are a group of 8+ (6+ in the Cross Bath).

Treatments can only be booked along with a spa session and should be booked in advance by calling our Reservations team on 0844 888 0844. We require full payment at time of booking.


If your treatment is at the beginning of your spa visit, please allow 30 minutes to enter the Spa and to change before your treatment. The time allocated to a treatment is in addition to the spa session - e.g. a 2-hour spa session plus an Malay massage = 2 hours + 50 minutes.

An additional 15 minutes is provided for changing and drying hair at the end of each spa session. An extra 30 minutes is also added to your spa session if you have something to eat or drink in the Restaurant. Beyond these times, there is a £6 charge for per half hour that you overstay your spa session.

The changing suite is mixed. After changing in a private cubicle, there are lockers of limited size to store your clothes and personal belongings. For security reasons, we cannot store large bags or suitcases.

No responsibility can be accepted by Thermae Bath Spa for the safety of money or valuables, whether placed in a locker or not. Thermae Bath Spa will not be liable for damage, injury or loss caused to our guests or their belongings.

The Smart Band

The 'SmartBand' which is given to you on arrival at the Spa acts as the key for your locker and registers the times that you enter and exit the Spa. The SmartBand is also the means of ordering food or drink in the Restaurant, which is then payable on exit. There is a £10.00 charge if you lose your SmartBand.
