After a year of my friend telling me about the sauna he goes to I decided to try it out (not entirely convinced it might not be just a wee bit dodgey).
My experience was fantastic. Had I realised it was a proper Europeam type spa I don't think it would have taken me so long to attend.
The finnish sauna is great very clean and as hot as you would expect. There are plenty of showers, a nice cold plunge pool, drinking water freely available. Loungers and relaxation areas with up to date magazines and newspapers. All in all I was pretty impressed.
Being my first visit I was provided with a full tour and explanation of the premises. Being a mixed day I decided to wear a swimsuit but next time would feel comfortable in a towel. If you are a prude be warned unless it is Tuesday (women only) then you will likely see naked men but to be honest you need to look to see anything. The day I attended there were three other women in bikinis and one man wearing swimming briefs so it is really up to you.
The retreat also has yoga and massage as well as a spa menu with healthy smoothies and snacks.
If you are in Wellington on a cold blustery day or night this is the perfect activity to do. Enjoy the finnish sauna in down town wellington today!
