the best place to relax

This sauna is real big, with a great garden. The outside pool is nice and warm. So many different ways to enjoy sauna. Also a very good beauty salon.

What a wonderful place. We hadn't managed to get back for a couple of years and were very pleased to see even more facilities have been added and that the complex has been well maintained. You can get there at 09:30 and on some days (inc Saturday), you won't be kicked out until 23:30 - and you won't be able... More

For a lazy weekend in Holland we spent a full day at Elysium - you couldn't spend any less with the number of saunas, pools, hot tubs, steam rooms, plunge pools, hammam baths etc! It's a lovely place, very relaxing and plenty of "quiet saunas". The website isn't available in English but the staff is very welcoming and helpful. We... More

I like this sauna, especially russian banja and special sessions. We booked also a diner, but it was very very bad. The food was terrible. Lunch was tasty

We haven't visited Elysium in Bleiswijk (near Rotterdam) for a while, but on Sunday 14 October 2012 we went there again. There is an explanation for the decline in service, quality of food and tidyness. Elysium is acquired by a group call IWR (International Welness Resorts). Although it was a relatively quite day, last Sunday they were short on staff.... More

Elysium takes me out of the stress of day to day life. It is an oasis. There are many choices of pools, baths, sauna's and treatments and the best part is that the way it's set up, it never feels crowded. The food is great and I love the fresh juices. The outdoor area is also very nice. In a... More

This is a typical Dutch spa, but better. Typical, because everyone is completely nude, but no one cares, and it is not a sexual experience. The spa is beautiful, with manner saunas, Jaccuzzi-type pools, salt baths, swimming pools, water falls, infra-red saunas and many more, both indoor and outdoor. Resting and eating facilities as well. But it is hard to... More

So when I first became acquainted with the European spa/sauna-world culture, two names kept coming up again and again; Therme Erding (near Munich) and Elysium (near Rotterdam). Took us a while to get to Elysium, but we finally made the trek last month which has elicited this admittedly somewhat mixed review. The place is big. In fact, Despite the fact... More

It's not too cheap, often crowded (especially on the parking), but offers pleany of possibility to relax: different kinds of saunas, massage (better book in advance - Lomi Lomi fully recommended), swimming pool, jaccuzzi and restaurants.
