Sauna Deco has been known for relaxation and rejuvenation in Amsterdam for over 30-years. The iconic institution is decorated in an Art Deco style.
The interior, part of Paris’ Au Bon Marché department store, was saved from demolition and relocated to Amsterdam.
The department store was built in 1920 and the 1970’s renovation of the of the famous store destined the interior to be sent to scrap.
By luck, the plans were over-heard and an agreement was made to have the interior ornaments delicately removed, numbered (similarly to an archeological excavation), and shipped to Amsterdam. It was a delicate job relocating the stunning interior.
The delicately hand-crafted stairs and railings, sandblasted glass, gilded decorations, paneling, and stained glass is now housed in the interior of the Sauna Deco Spa since 1979.
The 1890 Dutch building also became the new home to gray-green wall tiles from the old Twentsche Bank on Spuistraat, incorporating the important cultural heritage of the Dutch into the spa.
The almost 2000 ft² spa and wellness space offers a luxurious and unique experience in the heart of Amsterdam.
The grandeur of the main lounge area is impressive within itself. Several experiences and treatments are available including a cold-water plunge pool, a foot bath, a hydro-massage bed, tanning beds, steam rooms, facial treatments, and body wraps.
With two Finnish Sauna cabins, you can experience the benefits of hot and cold to stimulate circulation. Additionally, to improve your circulation, relieve aching muscles, and stimulate your metabolism, you should try the in-fared sauna.
The Turkish steam bath will soothe your tensions and the eucalyptus aromas with open your respiratory system, leaving you feeling tranquil and rested.
Several types of massages are available. They include deep tissue, classic, Shiatsu, hot stone, and sports massage. If you have tired feet then you will enjoy the feet reflex therapy. It is a foot massage that incorporates pressure points to help revitalize the feet and body.
Inside the spa, you will find a small café. It offers delicious and healthy snacks and light meals. Smoothies and freshly squeezed juices are also available. Sauna Deco’s healthy items include sandwiches on ciabatta buns, light salads, toasties, quiche, and soups. For those who like something a little sweet, they offer pies.
