  1. Has been to better places!

    “I have traveled many saunas around the world. This place was very modern, clean and looking good. But It's full of older men of all ages above 40. I'm not against of having mature men in saunas, everyone needs to have fun, but they were not even a handful of young men! My search went on for hours but no-one under 30 were anywhere to be seen and I get bored and left after 3 hours! Maybe younger men comes in late night I don't know... it was a daytime in Sunday when I was there. I am also surprised to find out that this the only sauna in Amsterdam :/ I had more fun at Church Club on Friday night to be honest.“

  3. book-keeping?

    “My experience of about 2 weeks ago. When one enters one gets a button for a consumption, I took a glass of beer, When I left this guy asked me to pay 2.75 Euro. The price of a beer, that however, I never had asked for and never had drunk either. This caused a very unpleasant talking between me and the guy who gives you the permission to leave the place. Of course I didn't pay for something I never got. " Finally he let me go, but he was still very angry with me.. And me ?? I was very upset and thinking what to do first when eventually, I will go there again come. Must I control first the administration that is linked to the number of the locker??“

    “Get packed during the weekend, ID to present at the entrance however has been done inconsistently which is one of their renewed act at the sauna right after the renovation. The faces of the new staffs looked friendlier than my last visit here which is the way it supposed to be.“

    “If you go to an Italian restaurant to order sushi you are a bit mad. You just wouldn't do that.

    I give you a piece of advice plan your visits to the saunas, I have been to several around the world and they key is to go when they are busy or on an event time when the city is hosting something big.

    I went to this sauna earlier on Easter weekend and the place was so packed full of the hottest guys you could not imagine the fun I had. I visited from 12 midnight to 4 am.

    Totally recommend one of the best saunas in the world! Don't let anyone tell you different.

    Go on a Saturday night or Sunday daytime and you will see.“

  6. Ignore the bitching, whinging trolls and go

    “The piece de resistance is the central lounge area featuring leather loungers and flanked by a bar at one end and a conservatory-style smoking room on one side. Friendly (mostly) bar staff dish out food and drinks to the quiet strains of somewhat chilled music. I suggest to management that they tweak the music more towards lounge/chillout such as Deluxe Lounge Radio. Thankfully it was not the loud doof doof music some gay operators think is de rigueur.

    The establishment is thoughtfully designed, built to exacting standards and clean and well managed. A dedicated cleaner was running around cleaning up after the boys.

    I enjoyed the steam, spa and sauna. Perhaps the steam and showers could be a degree warmer but this is a matter of personal taste.

    The demographic changed over time starting with the more mature aged at opening time and getting somewhat younger as the night progressed. There was a boot for every foot and a lack of attitude resulting in a fun time for me.

    Entry included one drink, which by way of example could be a gin or tonic, but not a gin and tonic. This example of teutonic exactitude appears mean spirited (no pun intended) and should be reviewed by management. To us foreigners it just appears strange.

    To the bitchy, whinging trolls who write excessively negative reviews to trash a businesses reputation just because they didn't get laid I say get a life.

    To the rest of you reasonable gay men, go, enjoy, have fun. Five stars from me.“

  7. Crazy small

    “I was there at 5 pm on a Monday and I have never seen such a collection of old people.

    The place was very small (just dry sauna) and an overcrowded jacuzzi. No steaming room and nothing else so I wonder if a floor or an area was closed.

    Very expensive. I never saw anyone cleaning anything. Maybe the time was not good to have decent looking young (under 45) customers.

    I live in Paris and can say that there sauna like suncity are 10 better (location and crowd). Don't know if improved after because I left after 40 minutes.“

    • Stay in Paris

      “The person complaining that NZsauna isn't as good as his Paris ones needs to take a deep breath & realise that men over 45 appeal to a lot of men of all ages. Thank goodness we have saunas that don't shun men based on age. Now, if we could only discourage our Parisian man, we'd all have a better time.

      NZ sauna is excellent. A bit too bright in some spots for my liking but dark enough in others. Most guys like dark I find. Less inhibiting. There's plenty of light in lots of places to check for perfection! Come here. You probably won't be disappointed.“

    • Suncity really?

      “Well, I am in Paris quite often and I have tried more or less all the saunas and cruise clubs there. Suncity is indeed well equipped but every time I spent time there, it was boring to death, with people walking around, watching or showing their (supposedly) well defined body to the admirative world. But no action at all.“

  8. Disappointed since the renovation.

    “I was hoping that the steam room at least would be as good as or better than it was. Unfortunately, it's worse! The red lights are too bright and they've put this stage area in place of what used to be a nice dark privacy seedy area! I once had a wonderful moment there but I'm not going to do it now in full view of everyone on a stage!

    Anything that goes on now is pretty much in full view of everyone where as before, you could enjoy the steam room at a distance without being bothered by what was going on in the dark area, or you could go join in but now it's all in your face, so to speak. So disappointed! :/“

    “I went there without my residence permit to show that I'm under 26, and the staff was friendly to me, until the manager staff came to me and told me that only residence permit could prove my age, and told me I have to pay the full fee. Long story short, the manager staff was very unpolite and his reasons for his refusal do not make sense.“

  10. Renovated!!!!

    “Re-opened at 21June 17, visited a few days after they completed the renovation. Clearly the touched up was only made in the Whirlpool which was using sensor system instead of push-button to reclaim the other round of water current and it was very hard to be done, need to place your finger-tip gently and slowly. People started to loose patient by do it over and over again, we are missing the point of having relaxation but turned to working hard on that system.

    Steam room has Red Light illuminated that surely gives you the feeling of sensual and beyond, and just a few relax/playing cabin has added right behind the whirlpool, but still could not cater the weekend peak hour. The visit that i did last week was packed with lack of rooms, then again we are missing the sense of having fun, since not everyone enjoy the fun at the steam cabin, more playing cabin should be there.

    Not sure if the idea of showing your ID at the entrance is consistently done but its a brilliant one. The Sauna chain in Rotterdam is planned to open by Mid of this year and hopefully they can chase the target on time to experience the difference of their touch.“
