For people from all walks of life, we will take you to whatever goal you can imagine... Finnish Sauna | Tory Urban Retreat

Much has been made of the health benefits of sauna bathing. With good reason. Physically, nothing is more reinvigorating than a deep, healthy sweat every day. Tension fades. Muscles unwind. Mentally, we emerge relaxed, revived and ready for whatever the day may bring. The body’s response to gentle, persistent heat is well-documented and proven day in and out by people all over the world. 

Our large & spacious Finnish sauna will relax, improve your overall health, and enhance your well-being.

The Finnish sauna is complemented by our beautiful, tranquil super large plunge pool set in lush surroundings for the perfect sauna experience.
