How to use a sauna
- Take 2 hours of your time.

- If your feet are cold, take a warm foot bath to prevent heat buildup from developing in your body.
- Place a bath towel on the bench and sit or lie down on top of it
- In the steam bath, flush your seat with the hose.
- A bath lasts between 10 and 15 minutes. You may sit or comfortably lie down.
- Just before the end of the sauna bath, sit on the bench for about 2–3 minutes.
- After that, get out of the cabin and breathe fresh air.
- Cool off in the shower with cool tropical rain or with the water hose. Use fresh water!
- Lie down on the lounger in the relaxation room and relax. If necessary, cool down again.
- Before the next bath, a warm foot bath promotes blood circulation. After thorough cooling down, the second somewhat shorter and possibly third even shorter bathing session follows – depending on your mood.

Remember to dry your body thoroughly before entering the heat cabin. Body moisture on the skin causes an unwanted cold feeling when exposed to heat.

For the best relaxation, heat is as important as cold. Use a refreshing shower to your taste, the enlarged blood vessels will so constrict again. This leaves the body feeling healthily fresh and pleasant until your next cycle.
The sauna – The Sanarium ®
The sanarium is operated on request in the sauna cabin.
As the Finns say, “A sauna without steam is like sitting under the sun of the Sahara” Anyone who has experienced the original Finn sauna with its intense infusions can confirm this. The traditional Finn sauna is preheated by an open fire with a large amount of stones for hours. Shortly before the start of bathing, the fire had burned out and smoke was allowed to leave the cabin through the open door.
The result of this laborious heating up was a very soft, even heat, not only from the oven, but from the entire cabin. The large amount of stones in the stove collect heat and allow intensive infusions, called Löylys, and let the temperature in the sauna fall slowly. With further infusions, the temperature is decreased and humidity increased
The Klafs Sanarium® offers the same experience as the original Finn sauna and is milder than the traditional sauna and at least as healthy. According to a study by the renowned Charité in Berlin, high blood pressure and circulatory problems under medical observation can be alleviated by the gentle warmth in the Sanarium® and often cured. Also, the positive influence on the immune system has been demonstrated.
The salutary effect in combination with pleasant aromas and gentle heat is experienced in the Sanarium®; this cabin may be operated also as a hot air bath, a soft steam bath, a climate similar to the tropical regions, and classic sauna. The cabin installed at the Hotel ADLER Carezza as in addition some extra wide and comfortable benches.
The Sanarium® – The Aquaviva
Resembling the outside environment of hotel ADLER Carezza with wood, rushing water and bird songs, the Aquaviva is integrated in the Sanarium® giving a similar feeling as experienced outside. The handmade, green glass object decorating the cabin wall stimulates optically and acoustically and relegates to an increased relaxation with a meditative mood. You feel like you’re sitting outside the hotel on the river in front of the hotel.
The steam bath
The steam bath has an ancient history. Greeks and Romans already knew about the benefits, and as a “Sudatorim” it was part of their bathing culture. The Romans brought this bath to the Eastern World, where it has survived to these days as a Turkish steam bath, and in Northern Russia a variation of the steam bath, the Banya.
Steam is a universal force. It drives locomotives, smooths suits and gives the coffee a foam head. With all of these modern applications, we often forget a much older benefit from steam: Like no other medium, it can increase well-being.
Experience a comfortable sweat, similar to the sauna, but with a totally different climate, not too hot and much more humid. In effect, it is still comparable to the sauna. For many, the very low temperature between 42 and 46 °C and a relative humidity of about 100% as ideal for relaxing. Steam also helps to alleviate respiratory problems and rheumatic ailments under a medical supervision. The effect of the steam is increased by the addition of fragrances and flavors from herbs and spices. Furthermore, it enhances blood circulation and cleanses and tones the skin.
Our Klafs steam bath has an easy-care acrylic body in white and bordeaux-red. Before you sit down, take the water hose and flush your seat. The seats are molded seamlessly to the walls and are comfortable to lay down, if no other bathers are present.
The sun gives us energy, and changes our mood quite a bit.
These positive characteristics of the sun can be enjoyed any time of the day on the sun bench. Through the principle of immediate pigmentation, the solarium tans particularly intense. This creates a natural, long-lasting tan for a beautiful skin.
