Pool is 17m x 13.5m

Spa

Heated to 37 degrees and fitted with varying pressure jets, it’s the perfect spot to unwind.

Spa

Sauna

Heated rocks radiate temperatures of up to 85 degrees within the room and have a vent that continually brings in fresh air to limit the humidity build-up.

Saunas are a good choice for people with conditions that can be aggravated by humidity, such as rheumatoid arthritis.

Steam room

A steam generator boils water (to approximately 45 degrees) into steam and releases it into the air. It is nearly airtight, so the humidity builds to 100 percent. The air is so damp that water condenses on the walls.

Steam rooms may be more comfortable for people with allergies or congestion in the chest or sinuses.

Benefits

Both the steam room and sauna have fantastic therapeutic benefits, including;

  • Reduces muscle tension
  • Promotes relaxation and general well-being
  • Helps improve circulation
  • Promotes sweating, which opens the pores and cleanses the skin
What to bring
  • Sweat towel
  • Drink bottle
  • Swimsuit
  • Sandals/thongs
  • Temperatures can fluctuate depending on movement of people in and out.
  • Limit your time to no more than 15 minutes, prolonged increase in body temperature can be dangerous.
  • If you start to feel dizzy or nauseous, remove yourself and drink some water and cool off.
  • Drink plenty of water to replace the fluids lost through perspiration.
  • Pregnant women should seek medical information before using the sauna, steam room or spa.
  • Children under 16 are not permitted to use the sauna or steam room unless approved via a medical professional.
  • If you suffer cardiovascular problems, we recommend not using the sauna or steam room.
