Customer briefing

Firstly, thank you for your interest in Sawna Bach - The Scenic Sauna. The following is for your safety whilst using our sauna. Should you disregard the brief or we believe you are putting other users at risk we have the right to remove you from the sauna.

  • Every individual must read and agree to the Sawna Bach waiver form (see above) prior to their sauna bathing session. If you are booking on behalf of a group, it is your responsibility to seek consent from your fellow sauna bathers

Before entering the sauna


  • You must bring with you your swimming bathers, 2x towels (1 for sitting on whilst in the sauna, 1 for afterwards/cold dip) and a water bottle

  • For the safety of your personal belongings please keep them to a minimum when coming to the sauna, ensure they are not obstructing doorways/entrance & exits. You must take off all jewellery to avoid metals heating up and burning you. There will be a safety box provided, but we cannot take any liability for losses.

  • Please make sure you stay well hydrated before, during and after your sauna visit.

  • Please be careful when walking in and out of Sawna Bach, be aware of hazards such as water on the floor. Take extra care when using the steps and use any handrails provided.


Inside the Sauna Room

  • Please sit on your towel and wear swimwear whilst using our sauna.

  • In the sauna there are benches on low and high levels. The high benches are much hotter than the lower, so place yourself according to your comfort level. It is important to note that a sauna can make you feel hot, light headed and faint. Should you feel these symptoms are beyond your comfort/control please notify another sauna bather or the sauna operator immediately so they can help you.

  • If you are new to sauna bathing, we would advise that you start off with short sessions of sauna bathing (5-7 minutes) on a lower level bench and slowly build up to a longer session and sitting on a higher bench. Keep an eye on the thermometer and clock in the sauna room. In between sauna bathing intervals, make sure you stay hydrated, you can relax on our deck chairs, go for a little stroll, pour water over yourself or even pop into the sea for a quick dip before coming back for another sauna session (that’s our favourite combination)

  • The operation of the wood burning stove is STRICTLY for staff members of Sawna Bach. If you would like to change the temperature or add wood to the stove please ask our friendly members of staff and they will be happy to help. Typically our sauna temperatures will range from 55-80℃. Please do not touch the stove, stones or chimney at ALL times.

  • You are welcome to pour water over the stones using the ladle & water provided, just check with your fellow bathers first as it will increase the heat! Use caution when adding pouring on the stones as hot steam will rise and could burn your arm if you are not careful. You should start by pouring steam at the back of the stove and bringing the ladle forward so that your arm is never in contact with the steam.

  • Please do not touch the vents. If you feel the sauna room needs more or less ventilation, kindly reach out to our friendly staff members, who will be happy to help.

  • No items except your towel to sit on and a non metal water bottle are to be taken into the sauna room, and all items must stay away from the stove.

  • The sauna space is an opportunity to relax, refresh & reset. Please respect other sauna bathers whilst using. Any disorderly behaviour is not permitted and the sauna operator reserves the right to remove disorderly users at any time.

  • Should there be a fire please leave the sauna immediately via the sauna door followed by the external door, the emergency exits. In any emergency our member of staff will advise you on what to do and where to meet. In case of an emergency exit the sauna trailer & notify the operator immediately for further instructions.
