First time Finnish sauna and you should try it!
Oct 2015
Our main reason coming down here today was to enjoy the swimming pool. But my in-law advised me to take the sauna time. She did warn me earlier about getting naked in the sauna, was pretty reluctant before and got dillema between curious-reluctant. Btw there's this parking lot in the next building from the club holiday. Take P4 if you're not members. We paid €2.5 for 1 hour. We paid in total €45 for 1 child (7 yo), 1 adult and 1 senior citizen. That to include : one big changing room (and to keep our stuff as well), sauna and pool. First thing to do was go to the changing room and undress completely. Just wrap your body with towel and bring your swimsuit with you, just don't use it yet. Pull your hair all together as the Finns can be very concern about hair in the pool, concern in a good way. The section for ladies and gents were separated, so not to worry about nudity. In front of the sauna room, there's this rack where you can put your towel and swimsuit. There's this sheet roll in front of sauna's door, take it and use it as it is your butt's cover. It prevents you from getting burning from the hot sauna bench. Pls remember it's impolite to stare at others private part. There are 2 sauna rooms : ladies only (i believe they also have gents only) and ladies+gents altogether. After coming to the sauna, take shower and afterward put your swimsuit. If you want to skip the sauna it's ok, but do shower before the swimming pool. The Finns consider sweat from human body might not be good for the water and for other's comfort. Which make sense since some people prefer to take less shower time. And don't forget to put on the swimsuit before get into swimming pool. They have 1 big pool, 1 small cold water pool, 1 kids pool and 2 small jacuzzis (the other one was mineral pool). Unless the cold water pool, the water in the pool was warm and nice. In the big pool, enjoy massage by the fountain or the massage pool. Totally recommended.
