  1. Enlighting

    “Excellent venue. Could be alot cleaner and reception staff more inviting. Some very rude people not respecting others. Didn't need hear commentary from some clown while watching videos. Left after a hour.“

  2. Great on hot days

    “This is one of the best saunas I've been to and fantastic on a hot day given the outdoor pool, garden and jacuzzi. I've been three times and it's always been spotless, with a decent number of cabins for play, all with locking doors, condoms, cleaning spray and paper towels. There's also douching hoses in the toilets, which I've never seen outside NZ but is very welcome if you haven't had time to prep beforehand.

    The jacuzzi is hot, not lukewarm like at other saunas, and the pool is clean and vast garden well tended. The garden has secluded bits for outdoor play but no one seems to mind if you have fun in the open on the lawn.

    I've only ever been during weekdays day time, so most clientele seem to be older and retirees, though a younger crowd starts to appear after work. The entry price is low for a sauna, so I'd highly recommended the place even if all you want to do is a bit of nude sunbathing and a splash in the pool.

    Bear in mind though that it's outside the city centre, so getting there might be an issue if you don't have a car.“

  3. Creepy

    “I went there in early 2017, and was thoroughly nauseated and left after a few minutes.

    The guy at the entrance tried his best to convince me to get together with him before I'd even found the locker "room".

    The place was a mess. There was a stale odour, and the showers were grimy and dirty.

    I felt seriously uncomfortable there! Absolutely shocking place!

    If you want a decent sauna, pay the higher price and go to Beresford Square.“

  4. Fully re-opened

    “The rebuilt facilities were opened on 23 May 2015. Nice and clean and now a good crowd, many in their 30s and up. Some younger and still quite a few older. Now has 2 jacuzzi s (one inside and one outside), large dry sauna, steam sauna and 12 private rooms. Large outdoor area with swimming pool makes this a great place in sunny weather. Much cheaper than the other one in the city.“

  5. For the more mature gay guy

    “One of the last saunas in the Auckland region. More of a club for the older gentleman. Average age must be 60. And it goes a lot higher. Really is like a club, they all seem to know each other. Fire was probably a good thing. Was getting very grubby. At least when it reopens it will all be new and clean. Cheap compared to the other sauna in Beresford St. Its also not a body beautiful sauna like Beresford St. Main downside is while there are showers some of the patrons appear to have never showered. Not much fun while going for it and having to hold your breath. But I suppose that's not the clubs fault. Just be aware as at April 2015 not all facilities are open yet. Regardless of what the blurb at the top of the page says.“
