An Opportunity To Think Bigger

The Scandinavian designed and crafted Merivale Barrel Sauna delivers in relaxation, refreshment, rejuvenation and also size. A truly unique expression of style and character that will enhance any New Zealand outdoor living space.

The Merivale Barrel Sauna whispers quirky Northern European architecture with natural timber grain and shapely curves.  Spacious enough inside to house all your close friends, growing family or local netball team. Requiring no expensive foundations or construction headaches, this barrel will turn your garden into an sanctuary of peace.



As with our other Saunas, the Merivale is constructed from durable 45mm thick Thermowood.  Measuring  a generous 3 meters long, by 2.05 meters wide, 2.05 meters high. In comparison to the St Albans, this sauna has two front windows and a canopy to offer protection from driving rain. Still seating up to 8 people across two benches, the extra 30cm offers a little more personal space. The increased interior space requires a more powerful Huum 9KW heater, which is included in the price. The package also includes under bench mood enhancing LED lights, ventilated benching, thermometer, timer, water bucket/ladle and outdoor cushions.

Under the curvy shaped canopy, the porch offers two seats with built in drinks holders. The sauna has a lockable wooden door with stylish glass panel and no large steps to cause obstructions. Other great features include a level ventilated floor through out and stylish trim. Essential ventilation to ensure safe usage is provided through under bench vents and adjustable wall vent. To protect your investment from the harsh elements, bitumen roof tiles add a rustic charm.

For a more rustic experience, try a wood burner heater instead of the electric heater with another upgrade option. Enhance the appeal by adding a full or half window to take advantage of a mountain or lake view.



Our Saunas are made in Northern Europe, hand crafted from 45mm thick Thermowood. Other similar barrels available elsewhere, are actually made in China using 38mm thickness timber. Canterbury Saunas visited Estonia, Finland and Sweden to seek out the best products and longest lifespan – we know Sauna!
