I bought this SAUNA for my guy as a Christmas present. This is a guy who has everything and finding just the right thing for him year after year gets harder and harder. I found this at a great price and was told to expect delivery in 6 weeks. So keeping my secret until "Santa" arrived seemed impossible and it was because just a week later the delivery company was calling to DELIVER! So I had to give up and tell him his present had arrived early and when the truck pulled up I thought he was going to jump out of his skin! We immediately unwrapped all the boxes and began to assemble the unit in our home gym. It was very easy to put together and exceeded all of my expectations. Every night after he works out there is this huge smile on his face when he says "Babe...I will be in the sauna if you are looking for me!" WIN-WIN-WIN! How will I ever outdue this gift next year?? If you like to sauna and can afford this unit.....it's a MUST!

Delivery was super fast! I had it less than a week after ordering. 3 boxes on a pallet, very heavy!! Once boxes were opened , the base's legs had cracks in the wood! Couldn't continue with assembly, unfortunately....Called Overstock and still waiting for them to contact manufacturer to order part. I spoke with the manufacturer and they just need the order from Overstock...I used some wood filler on the legs and some wood glue for now and assembled the sauna. The overall finish of the wood is OK, not luxury. Blemishes in the wood and some sloppy trim work and inconsistent stained finish. The heaters work great! Very soothing! The size is great for one and OK for two. Love the floor heater, feels great on my feet. Chromotherapy is very nice with multiple color choices and color scrolling...Stereo is OK, very simple but does have Aux!!! Sound is alright but could use better speakers. I want to upgrade the stereo with Bluetooth! Back rest's are flimsy, but work. Not the most comfortable. The magazine rack (very small!) I haven't used. I might install the cup holders. I love the ozone machine to clean the air!! Works great!! For the money this is a great sauna! Enjoy!!!
The Sauna heaters are great and work real well. The unit heats up to 135 in about 15 minutes.I don't know about the therapeutic benefits but the physiological effects are great. The difficulty is finding a position to be comfortable in so I can read or just relax. I am 6' and 240 lbs so I hit my head when entering unless I bend over stretched out on the bench My knees are bent to far so I sit a little crooked and try and get my legs on one of the flimsy backrest in the corner. I should have bought the 3 person unit, my fault not the saunas. The sauna faults are numerous enough. the inside walls wood slats are flimsy and I have cracked a few of them when leaning on them in stead of the terrible backrests. Ergonomically horrendous and again very thin wood and poorly made. The radio is adequate but the speakers are garbage. I know you get what you pay for but I wish it was just a little more usable for me. For people with less size it would make a really good sauna and If I could just sit on the bench for 30-40 minutes it would be okay for me also. Just so I use it my self. Next one will be a 3 person corner unit or straight one and I will then be able to give it more stars.
We love it!! This gets so much use, everyone uses it! The Infrared is better for you then the typical steam sauna for detoxification purposes. The radio sound is great. Was simple to put together, just plug it in. The size is small, so you don't want to be in there with another person. I would buy a larger one next time.
I am truly enjoying this, I just wish someone would tell me what the different colors mean as they do have meaning as to detoxing, relaxing and all. I called the company but they never got back with me. It used to be up there but it has somehow gone into sauna land, Other than that, for the price of this, it is truly wonderful.
I've recommended this sauna to several friends. After researching for the items I wanted in a sauna (fir not cedar, oxygenizer, stereo, light therapy, heated floor/reflexology, this one covered all. It arrives on an 18-wheeler UPS freight truck and they would not come up my driveway or go on private property. We met the truck within minutes with our pick-up truck and helped the driver unload the pallet of three boxes. It took approx. 2hrs with two guys to assemble. I think the hardest part was lugging out all the cardboard and styrofoam that this was packed in out to the dumpster.
