Some information for First-Time Spa Users:

Sauna – Get the most out of your visit

  • Please shower before visiting the sauna.
  • We ask that you place a hand towel under your body and feet in the sauna. Sit or lie down in a relaxed posture.
  • Pouring scented water over the hot stones increases sweat production.
  • As a guideline, you should sweat for 10-15 minutes during your sauna visit. Enjoy the pleasant effects as long as you like, but sit quietly for about 2 minutes before leaving the sauna.
  • Alternating cold and warm water in your post-sauna shower will refresh your circulation and improve your immune system.
  • Give yourself about 15 minutes to recover in our relaxation room after a sauna.
  • Rinsing your legs with alternated cold and warm water can relieve and reduce the appearance of varicose veins.
  • Drink water when thirsty.
  • You can use the waterfall shower or massaging whirlpool between saunas or after a sauna visit.
  • Repeat this process one or two times as desired or to relieve a specific condition.
  • Finish your sauna visit with a period of rest and relaxation.

Solarium -  Recommendations

  • Do not use tanning lotions or bronzers.
  • Visit the solarium only once per day.
  • Select the length of your solarium session based on your skin type.
  • You must wear the provided protective goggles and close your eyes while tanning.

Massaging whirlpool

  • Purchase your token at the reception desk and insert it into the whirlpool.
  • Wait until the whirlpool has filled with water. You may enter the whirlpool when the light inside the tub turns on.
  • Please use only the non-foaming concentrated scent available at the reception desk.
  • The light will turn off after approx. 10 minutes. Please exit the tub quickly (the tub will clean itself automatically)
  • You may insert another token when water has drained completely from the tub.
