An investment in relaxation and solitude for tired or stressed bodies. 

Ease aches and pains away in your own sanctuary of solitude and rejuvenation. The New Zealand made ‘Tartu’ Sauna Cabin is a sanctuary of calm and inner peace and offers what your body needs after a hard days work.



The Tartu Sauna Cabin will compliment any New Zealand garden and offer years of enjoyment. Crafted from New Zealand grown thermally modified timber (TMT) with Terra Lana wool blend insulation for a superior, natural experience. The sauna has been designed with energy efficiency, healthy and sustainable materials in mind. Added to this we use Foreverbreathe™ exterior timber oils and paint from the Natural Paint Co.

The ultimate in relaxation, this stylish cabin is quick to heat up and easy to use – you too deserve this luxury. Splash some water onto the Huum Drop heater for soothing hot steam or add some of our scented sauna oils into the bucket for a more sensory experience!



The Tartu Sauna Cabin comfortably seats up to four people across a two tiered bench seat, which gives users choice in their comfort levels. The sauna comes equipped with the award winning Huum Drop 4.5 KW heater, stones, mood enhancing LED lighting, ventilated benching and stylish black bucket and ladle. Interior linings are sustainably sourced dressed tongue and groove TMT, with breathable, vapour permeable Magnum board. Exterior walls are clad with textured TMT with a choice of eight Foreverbreathe™ oil shades.

In between sessions, cool down and relax outside on the outdoor terrace. The sauna also features a lockable safety glass door, outdoor bench seat and no large steps to cause obstructions.



Other great features include a level ventilated false floor and stylish facing trim on the bench seats. Essential ventilation to ensure safe usage and a good internal environment is provided through an intake air vent, waste air vent and adjustable exhaust vent. The cabin is protected with a black five rib steel roof, with matching flashings.

Regardless of rain or shine, hail or snow, relaxing in the The Tartu Sauna Cabin is an all year round activity. The temperature inside is set to exactly what the user chooses, guesswork is removed by the digital UKU classic control panel. Through smart design and materials The Tartu will offer superior levels of comfort.

This sauna cabin comes almost ready to go, as we have done the hard work. The Tartu comes fully built, includes a Huum Drop pre-wired in, along with the temperature probe, UKU control panel and LED lighting. An external power isolator outlet, allows your electrician to easily connect the cabin to your properties power supply. Sitting on three ground contact rated bearers, the cabin is ideally placed onto a solid foundation – we recommend Ground screws . We have a close relationship with Stopdigging NZ, who can install Codemark approved Ground screws at your location and secure the sauna to them.



For a more rustic experience, we can offer a wood burning heater instead of the Huum Drop heater as an upgrade option. We recommend pairing this with ‘The Helsinki’ Sauna Cabin option, as it is slightly larger internally, which matches the wood burners heat output. 

Our Saunas are proudly crafted here in New Zealand and paired with the finest European made heater brand, we have ever used. Our team visited Estonia, Finland and Sweden to seek out the best products, know-how and functionality – we understand Sauna and aren’t simply selling a container load of a product we know little about.

The Tartu Sauna Cabin has been designed for 2-4 people. By keeping the cabin to a proportionate size, using wool blend insulation and thermally modified timber, allows for a heater with a smaller power requirement. Larger heaters can require up to 37.5 amps, which can be difficult for some properties with a restriction on available amperage. The 4.5kw Huum drop heater only requires around 18 amps, which makes it a viable option for most NZ homes. The quirky shaped window has been kept to a minimal size, again, as a larger glass surface requires a heater bigger output.



The Tartu Sauna Cabin comes with peace of mind. We offer a 5 year guarantee on the electric heater unit and 5 years on the cabin structure (subject to residential use, correct installation of foundation and maintenance schedule is adhered to).
