“Deco Sauna - steam dream”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

If you want to get away from the tourist buzz of the more crowded streets of Amsterdam and de-stress, then pay a visit to this well appointed spa. It's discreetly situated on a beautiful canal and very welcoming. You should be aware that this is a mixed spa, so don't be shy about shedding your clothes in a uni-sex dressing room, shower, and sauna areas. However, this being Holland it's no big deal and quite liberating. The sauna is beautifully decorated with (surprise!) beautiful art deco features and you really feel that you have stepped back into a more elegant era in the sitting areas. After a few hours of rest and quiet, I guarantee that you'll be refreshed for the bustle of this most beautiful and popular of European cities. Try it!

“A wonderful relaxing spa”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

This is a naturist spa, very relaxed and no problem whether you are a single male, female or couple. Really warm and relaxing with a great range of facilities, try the hydromassage bed if you get the chance.
Little cafe as well so you can have a light snack or drink and plenty of areas to chill out and relax.
Well worth the entrance fee and we lost track of time while there, it was so chilled out.

Absolutely Beautiful decor. Lovely relaxing surroundings.

Great Sauna to spend a relaxing afternoon. We went here twice during our stay in Amsterdam.

The sauna is lovely and clean, the staff are very friendly and helpful.

Try the food too, very nice and reasonably priced.

Will be back again.

“A Perfect Place to Relax”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

I read the reviews on TripAdvisor before our last trip over to Amsterdam (usually an annual event with the wife as it was where I proposed many years ago!). As we've been to just about every museum and tourist attraction in Amsterdam I thought that this would make a nice change (especially as we'd just been to a Spa in the UK a few months ago).
I knew what to expect - a mixed sauna - although neither of us had been to one before.
All of that will change from now on as we intend to revisit this little place of relaxation whenever we can get back there !!
Yep... all rooms are mixed (except for the toilets)... no-one really cares that the only dress code is a towel (at most)... the smell of eucalyptus everywhere... the soft, mellow music... the wonderful steam room and saunas... relaxing areas to crash out... the cleaniness... just thinking about it makes me pine to get back there !

We spent about 5 hours in their during our visit and loved every minute !!
We wanted to go back before we returned home, but just couldn't fit it into the schedule.

It's not seedy (and it should definitely stay that way). There were definitely more males than females during our visit but never felt it was an issue.

A perfectly, wonderful, relaxing experience ! Enjoy the peace, don't ruin the experience for others.

“Great experience, in a clean, professionaly run, nude mixed sauna.”
Reviewed 19 January 2012

This was our first visit to a mixed sauna, where everyone is nude and what a great relaxing experience it was. It was a birthday treat for my girlfriend and we both had a lovely time there. It's open from 12 midday till late, just looks like an fairly ordinary building from outside, however the interior is fabulous and the staff are extremely helpful and kind.
Even though every visitor is naked, no one seems to take any notice and no one stares or bothers you at all. There was a good mix of ladies and men and towels are normally worn whilst you move through the building, to the different areas.
All rooms are mixed, which are the changing room, showers, steam room, both saunas, cold plung pool, hot foot spas, small radiation sauna, quiet relaxing area, mezanine area for laying down, and the main seating area for relaxing.
My partner had a massage which she loved and after 2.5 hours we came out totally refreshed, I would recomend it to anyone. It was 18 Euros each, extra for towel hire and the massage.
