  1. A little play plus a relaxing massage

    “I visited NZ only once during my first stay in Amsterdam. I should have stayed longer and I should have gone back that night. Great place. Friendly staff. Clean (in fact we were ejected from the steam room for a scheduled clean, which was fine). Loved the Sauna and the one-way mirrors. The ages, sizes and shapes of the men varied, which was a ‘menu’ for all. This is going to sound parental, but the drinking fountain just outside the sauna was very convenient. I am not a cruise kind of guy, but the crusing spaces were fun and interesting. If I was a bit more adventurous, then I might have gotten an even better experience, or at least gotten off. The bar area is really nice. Comfortable and open. I sat with my welcome drink and chatted with an older fellow. The locker area is well set up and minus my glasses I could still find my way about. I don’t smoke, so the smoking area seemed like a good place to stop for a ‘drag’ (not the queen type). The BEST part of my stay, however, was my (non-sexual) massage. I booked the massage on arrival and only had to wait 1.5 hours… a great time to enjoy NZ. My man was fantastic. He asked me how strong I wanted the massage and left me very relaxed. Unlike a massage in a parlour, he gave me extra information about how to cap off the massage… the hot spa and the sauna to relax my muscles… it worked a treat. He even played a CD of Maria Callas arias and chatted with me (the point here is that this was all round a great experience). All in all a great place to stop and rest and have some fun. Hello to the beautiful milk chocolate skinned man who chatted with me for quite a while before I left. I wished I could have stayed longer with you.”

  2. One & Only

    “Being the one & only sauna in Amsterdam has made it became a very hot cruise place as it meant to be. strategic location right in the hear of the City where everything almost legal, condom container, lube dispenser and enough wipe tissue is always smart when it comes to run such business. During its peak time they always short out of rooms, which is one thing that could be improved on but so far one of favorite in its kind.”

  3. the best sauna:)

    “I was in a lot of gay saunas in Europe … This sauna is the best, not too big, but not small. Very nice staff, new, clean, free condoms and lube. A lot of guys of all ages, the best place for action in Amsterdam. Best on Friday and Saturday afternoon and evening.”

  4. NZ sauna

    “Very impressed! Got there and chill out area almost empty, that’s because everyone in there was in the cruising areas. Really busy and was 2pm on a Thursday. I know everyone puts this but honestly a real mix of ages and guys. And action everywhere! Definitely worth a visit guys! I thought area of sauna was big. Nice smoking room, guys were smoking pot as well.”

  5. Dutch's touch

    “Being the one and only gay sauna in the big city of Amsterdam, NZ still able to facilitate the clients because it is a big sauna, from the Jacuzzi and the cozy dry sauna which allow you to sneak a peek the shower through the glass wall. Entrance fee with include of one round drink so it is cool to give a try. Over all experience was nice, a bit of tip perhaps, silver daddies will out after 6pm jut so in case you guys aren’t daddy kinda guy. LOL .
    Although the towel changing is inconsistent, got once free but next is chargeable. Do not bother anyway!”

  6. Hot, clean and friedly

    “What a nice surprise, I heard good comments about NZ but they run short of credit. It’s superb, maybe I was new flesh, but I met some of the best guys ever. Hot, nice and well endowed, what else can you ask for?.
    The staff is very nice and helpful, the place is the cleanest and best organised I’ve been. And believe me, I’ve been to many.”

  7. Very VERY HOT

    “I thoroughly enjoyed myself at NZ. My goal was to have as much horny fun as possible, and I was not disappointed: There were all types of guys and none of the attitude that you can experience at some of these kinds of places. Once I got past the brightly lit changing area, and into the labrynth of hallways and opportunities around each corner, I got my enjoyment several times over. Well worth it and highly recommended.”

  11. Lots of fun

    “The best gay sauna I’ve been to. We had to queue to get in but once inside the place is packed with guys of all ages and nationalities. We met some nice people and had a lot of fun! The venue was very clean. Spent 3 hours here, lots to see and do! Bit expensive but you get a free drink.”

  12. NZ: the place to be!

    “In the meantime I have visited NZ several times and every time it was great: friendly staff, good food and drinks and everything so clean and well taken care of. So every time I go there I enjoy the steamroom, the bubblebath , the good food and drinks and … the cinema! Great adult movies and great cabines to withdraw with horny guys for some hot fun. What more can I say? Keep up the good work guys!”

  13. clean, modern, small

    “Visited twice, nice environment and facilities but no action. Maybe late afternoon is not the best time to go. I left out of boredom both times. Will try again in the evening. I do miss Thermos.”

  14. Good sauna

    “Good sauna. Crowded on Sunday. We had to wait to get in. Inside the sauna is clean (although there were so many people). Actions in steam room, sauna and cabins. Friendly staff.
    Only one room to relax (in front of the bar). All the cabins are a bit too dark.”

  15. Fun times - small crowd

    “Of the two saunas in Amsterdam NZ has a nicer environment. Visited twice since it opened – both time had fun, although not a huge number of other customers – so you need some luck and careful timing.”

  16. Descriminatie

    “Ben er in de avond/nacht van goed vrijdag geweest, met mijn Nederlander beste vriend, slecht service aan de bar, te lang wachten terwijl zij alleen maar bezig zijn met kletsen en steeds helpen wie ze wilen behalf mij, mogelijk door mijn Marocaans uiterlijk, ook bij het verlaten van de sauna met mijn nederlande beste vriend, hebben zij mij 1 euro berekend voor een extra handdoek die ik gevraagd had, mijn beste vriend zelfs 3 handdoeken gebruikt en niets hoefde te betalen, heb toch gevraagd waarom ik 1 euro voor moest betalen, had ik beter niet moeten doen, ben erg onbeschoft beantwoord, dit weer mogelijk door mijn uiterlijk, toch bedankt NZ voor deze prachtig service.”

  17. Short visit in Amsterdam

    “I booked a one-hour Thai massage by Alessandro to unwind my travelling stress and continued with sauna, steam room and small talks at the lounge bar. At least 2-3 lads of my taste, but I was not in horny/cruisy mood. I would recommend going there on a weekday between 8pm and 11pm.”

  19. Alex

    “Great place, very stylish, friendly staff and they do their best to keep it clean (it’s the people who make such a mess). It’s more the (Dutch?) guys who are afraid to make a move. If you make a move you usually can get a lot of fun, even on a quiet night (older guys come during the afternoon).”

  20. Touchey feely

    “The facilities are nicer than the Thermos but less plentiful, my boyfriend and I spent more than an hour trying to get a little bit of privacy all the while a bunch of guys followed us around touching me any chance they got. We were open to doing stuff with other people if only they had used their voices instead of just pressing their semis into my back.

    So, if you’re the youngest guy there or just young enough to get the discount (23 years or below) be prepared for a lot of attention, some less welcome than others. But in the end, maybe that’s what it’s all about.

    Rated creepy but fun/10”

    • places to look for privacy

      “If you go with your boyfriend to a gay Sauna looking for privacy, sorry dear but I think you have your priorities well mixed. Stay at the hotel, apartment or if not rent your own place. You have made me laugh, looking for privacy in a place where guys go to have fun. Then you were almost abused by others, wake up and better go shopping with the BF for god sake.”

    “Went there last night. A guy behind the bar was laden with tattoos, stank of swear and not really friendly. Sitting area too small when busy. Lots of older obese guys. Even though modern, its too small so I left disappointed after an hour.”
