Our wellness section’s whirlpool, sauna, infrared sauna and steam room allow guests to relax on site, while the building’s indoor pool and steam bath complete the day. The pool area is lit by natural light streaming in through a dome in the ceiling.
The sauna has a history going back more than 2 000 years. Its origin is not clear, but it is certain that it was known among the Finno-Ugric peoples. We can call the Finns the pioneers of sauna culture, because they are the ones who have preserved the ancient tradition of this. It can be used to achieve both mental and physical fitness, or vice versa; it can be used to both exhaust and recharge after a stressful day or week.
The operation of infrared sauna cabins is very simple: the built-in infrared emitters produce wavelengths of radiation that heat your body rather than the air; more precisely, they transfer their thermal energy to the water in your body. Since most of our body is made of water, the whole body is evenly heated. Unlike a Finnish sauna, this one works directly on the tissues under your skin, so it will make you sweat at a much lower temperature – it operates at a temperature between about 45 and 60 degrees. Using an infrared sauna is very easy, but there are a few things to be aware of to make your time more enjoyable: for beginners, start at a lower temperature – 45-50 degrees – and don’t spend more than 20 minutes in the sauna! The temperature and the time spent inside can be increased with each day. In general, do not stay inside for more than 50 minutes! Drinking adequate amounts of fluid before and during the use of an infrared sauna is very important.
