The Babylon is split into 2 very distinct and seperate parts, the B&B and the Suana,
We stayed in the Barracks again as have already done the Penthouse Suites, the Barracks are twin bed basic rooms and all NON-Suite with the communal showers and sinks located on each floor, the rooms and B&B as a whole are cleaned to a high standard but do watch the air-con as it can be very tempremental and leak in some rooms.
As the Babylon is targeted at a gay clientele there is a more relaxed and imformal attitude to dress code and dont be surprised to find someone wandering to the showers in just a towel, yes there is a certain amount of crusing that goes on but if your not interested all you have to do is say a polite no.
The suana is run as another seperate business and again this is aimed at a gay / bi clientel, there are the usual steam and suana rooms and a small jacuzzi, the open air pool is nice but naked swimming is not permitted to so bring swimwear, there is also a full poolside gym and a restaurant and coffee shop.
For me staying at the Babylon is all about the spa and massages on offer, the whole of level 3 is dedicated to these and its really worth paying for.
You can have anything from a 30 min foot massage to a 3 hr oil massage including a foot massage and salt body scrub of which i always have on my last day before flying home.
If you do book a massage it is NOT a massage with a "Happy Ending" the staff are well trained and professional so please respect this, if you want that there is the rest of the sauna to try, if you persist they will ask you to leave straight away with no refund and will charge you the full amount of the massage as well.
