... large one and a smaller one with metal arm rests and jets. There was also a steam room decorated with tiny blue tiles. Upstairs was a series of saunas and a fantastic outdoor bath with views of the river (and the shell garage!). Kim landed the jackpot on the ladies side though, as Satonoyu has a penguin sauna (one that is ice cold). Just the ticket after a scorchingly hot bath!
