Thermae Bath Spa is Britain's only natural thermal Spa and benefits from the warm, mineral-rich waters which the Celts and Romans enjoyed over 2,000 years ago. Located in the heart of the World Heritage city of Bath, Thermae is a remarkable combination of five historic buildings and the contemporary architecture of the New Royal Bath. Highlights include the open-air rooftop pool with wonderful views over the city of Bath, the flowing curves of the Minerva Bath, an innovative series of steam rooms and a choice of over 50 spa treatments and packages.

Did the twilight experience with 3 girly chums. we felt out of place . it was full of couples getting up close up in the water as dusk fell and the mist rose . Some moments were nice . Food was OK after we managed to discuss options with staff . Layout for changing and showers bizarre . Felt like... More

Thank you for your comments. We are disappointed to hear that you felt that Thermae Bath Spa was more of a mass production rather than luxury experience. As a World Heritage Site, Bath is a popular destination for days out and short breaks meaning school holidays and weekends tend to be the busiest days at the Spa however; there can... More

Love the spa, have been three times now and it's always brilliant. The steam rooms were being re-furbished this time which was a bit of a shame but didn't hinder our session. I think it is worth mentioning that we received complimentary vouchers for a return visit before November this year by way of an apology for any inconvenience. As... More

Positives: it's very clean and you get to keep the flip flops when you're done. The steam rooms were being refurbished when we visited, but we knew that ahead of time. They did give coupons for a return trip because of it. The lower level pool is warm, has a circular "river" course, with a central jacuzzi-like area. It's relaxing... More

We went on a Saturday evening at 4:30pm and queued for 1.5hrs. It was a little crowded but not too busy. There were only 2 pools open so we received a voucher to return on a weekday. Changing rooms are on 1 floor and showers on a different floor. There is shampoo, shower gel and conditioner provided and you get... More

The spa was overcrowded with not enough room to relax. It was very expensive especially as the steam rooms are closed. Although we were given a voucher to return we probably won't as we live to far away. The water is beautiful as are the views from the roof top, it's just a shame it was so overcrowded.

Thank you for taking the time to review Thermae Bath Spa. We are pleased that you enjoyed bathing in our thermal waters and enjoyed the beautiful views from the Rooftop pool. We are sorry to hear that found the spa crowded. Whilst the weekends tend to be our busiest time at the spa, on certain occasions we may also become... More

Both times I have visited with my partner on a Wednesday. The rooftop pool has been "busy" with couples on both occasions. I was unsure whether this was a coincidence however after giving it a google Wednesdays seem to popular night with adventurous couples. Will avoid Wednesday's in the future. Visited the cafe on both occasions as we had he... More

My wife and I loved our visit to the Thermae Bath Spa. The facilities are excellent and the staff are lovely. As an amputee I had reservations about visiting the spa, but need not have worried at all. The unique rooftop bath - which enables bathing underneath the stars all year round - and the indoor bath both provide winch... More

We booked the bamboo massage about a month ago and we could not book for the weekend as they were fully booked from Friday onwards. We went on a Thursday and I think the place was kind of busy still. The rooftop pool is really nice. We could catch the sunset. The place is overall clean. We had to exchange... More

Enjoyable twilight package which included excellent food. The experience in the steaming waters of the rooftop pool was memorable. My only complaint was the badly designed front entrance which was totally inadequate for the volume of people, including those, like us, that had pre-booked. However, once inside we were able to relax and enjoy.

For anyone who needs a little bit of a pamper this is definitely the place to go in Bath. For the basic package you can use the steam rooms, with 4 different aromas to choose from (tea tree is my favourite), as well as the indoor pool with lazy river and the outdoor pool that is heated. No better way... More
