The Portland Steam Bath That’s Everything You Need For Fall
It only takes a few cool mornings in Portland before my mind begins to wander to snuggly robes and slippers, warm luxurious baths, and other relaxations that involve heat. This wonderful spa is just one of those great places to warm up and take in the lovely atmosphere as the days turn cooler.
Named Loyly, after the Finnish word for the steam that surrounds you after water is tossed on hot sauna rocks, this spa is everything you need this fall.
Featuring beautifully appointed waiting rooms, relaxation rooms and saunas, this spacious spa has two locations to serve you.
The cornerstone of the experience is the sauna. Each visit consists of 2 hours of sauna time that you may divide between the sauna, showers, and lounge room.
Everything you need for your visit, such as towels, robe, locker and lock is included in your admission, making it easy to pick up and go.
A warm and inviting reception greets you at both of the eastside locations.
Choose between a Basic Sauna Visit, or upgrade your experience with the Head to Toe Package that includes an aromatherapy foot soak, face mask and cleansing tea.
You will change out of your daily wear in the locker room, where changing stalls are available.
The locker room is shared throughout the day, and will feature both single and mixed genders, depending on the time you visit. During mixed gender times, swimsuits are required.
There is plenty of space to move around, and you will not feel rushed or crowded in the facility.
Featuring minimalistic design and warm wood throughout, the interior is relaxing and you won't want to leave anytime soon.
Depending on individual tolerance, visitors stay in the sauna for 10 to 20 minutes at a time, taking breaks in the lounge room in between to cool off.
Take a cool shower and sit back and relax in the lounge, styled after traditional Scandinavian saunas.
The typical guide is to spend as much time cooling off after the sauna as you were in it.
Stay hydrated while you relax by sipping on the provided water, or purchase kombucha, tea, sparkling water, or light snacks while you relax.
Once you have had a few trip back and forth from sauna to lounge, your time will be up, and you should feel a higher level of calm and relaxation.
Refreshed is the best way to describe emerging from a sauna and that is exactly how you will feel after a trip to Loyly.
