The sauna is suitable for people of all ages. As soon as you enter, you will be prompted to take off your shoes and put them in a locker. An entrance fee of $25 applies to all adults, and $15 to all children (ages 3-6). Once you've paid, you'll be handed a set of sauna shorts and a shirt that you'll wear during your visit. It is recommended that you bring a towel with you wherever you go, since the facility is set to a high temperature all throughout.

Guests are encouraged to bring their laptops, books and games with them to enjoy in the lounge areas. There are also TVs, arcade games and seven mineral saunas that you can use. Each sauna room is equipped with baskets of charcoal to enhance the benefits of each mineral. It is said that the mineral therapy has many beneficial effects on ailments such as diabetes, liver disease, skin inflammation, high blood pressure, stress, fatigue, muscle aches, and much more.
