The Storm-Watching Sauna

Private, Beachfront, Wood-Fire Sauna Experience

A Nordic Spa – with a West Coast twist!

Our new onsight Beachfront Sauna amenity is brought to you by Tuff City Saunas.

This wood-burning stove replicates the authentic 9,000-year-old wet-sauna experience. Splash temperate water over hot rocks to create löyly (steam – ”spirit of life”) and lämpömassa (heat: gentle, yet intense) in a luxurious cedar-setting.

Treat yourself to wood-fired heat therapy, then feel the sand under your feet and kelp on your skin as you wade out into the waves of the Pacific Ocean… travelling energy generated from a distant storm of the past… yours for the taking!

Enjoy a 2-hour PRIVATE barrel-sauna rental onsite overlooking the famously stormy Cox Bay with cold showers and Adirondack lounging chairs.

Bookings Open 9 am-6 pm: $199/Two Hours* – For Up To Six People.
*price per group! (not per person)
