🌟 Saunature Spa: Igniting Wellness, Connecting Community 🌟

Greetings, beautiful souls!

I'm Gerda, your friendly neighborhood sauna enthusiast, and I'm on a mission to bring the authentic Baltic Sauna Experience to the breathtaking landscape of Holme Farm in Surrey. With your support, we're creating Saunature Spa—a haven where nature, sauna, and well-being dance in harmony.


Why Saunature Spa?

Saunature Spa is more than just a sauna; it's a movement to reconnect our community with the profound healing power of nature and the age-old remedy of the wood-fired sauna. In the midst of life’s pressures, cost of living crisis, and mental health challenges, we're offering a sanctuary for escapism, relaxation, and a much-needed return to nature.


Meet Gerda: Your Sauna-loving Guide

I'm Gerda, a Lithuanian mum of three, daughter, wife, personal trainer, dance and yoga teacher, and, well, just me. Born and raised in Lithuania, where saunas outnumber people 3:1, I carry a passion for authentic Baltic sauna culture. Sauna life is simple in Lithuania - a weekly ritual that brings people together, providing a blissful state of peace and leaving you feeling revitalized.


The Vision: Mind, Body, and Soul Healing
Sauna isn't just about heat; it's a holistic experience. Connecting with nature, immersing in cold plunges, socialising in the steam, and adopting a new way of healthy living—Saunature Spa aims to weave these elements into the fabric of our community. Picture golden sunsets, crisp morning breezes, and moody skies—all within the gentle embrace of our nature-inspired sauna.


The Sauna Movement in the UK 

What we're planning is not new, but it's revolutionary for Surrey. Inspired by local wood-fired sauna pioneers, I've been in creative conversations to elevate this project. The sauna experience isn't just about sweating; it's about improved sleep, reduced pain, enhanced exercise performance, and even protection against diseases.

Crafted with Love

Imagine an inviting space with guided Baltic sauna rituals, maximum comfort, and efficiency.
