Vista Front Glass
2-3 Weeks Delivery
The Vista Front Glass Outdoor sauna barrels were designed and engineered by sauna enthusiasts to be the most comfortable, durable, and attractive barrel saunas you can buy.
Barrel Sauna Comfort
Bathing comfort cannot be overlooked when investing in an outdoor sauna barrel. The diameter of the barrel and the bench/backrest configuration must be considered. Barrels with a small diameter may be priced lower (less materials), but the tradeoffs are door height, bench comfort, and headroom. Smaller diameter barrels have a tighter arc which can create seating posture challenges, impact standing upright, and require one to duck upon entry and exit. Sauna Barrels benefit from a 6’5” interior height. Due to its large diameter, benches can be contoured and formfitting. The generous barrel arc can support an expansive and arched backrest for true lumbar support. Touch and feel were not ignored when selecting the knot-free, silky-smooth grade-A Thermo-Aspen seating material designed to hug most any body size.
Full-glass front wall
Nothing adds to a spacious feeling like expansive windows. The Vista Front Glass features bronzed, full-height, tempered glass sidelight windows that, combined with the matching tempered glass door, create a full glass front wall. The natural light will open up the space to create an incredibly airy and relaxing sauna while providing amazing views of the outdoors.
Durability – A lifetime of outdoor bathing pleasure
Did you know that Thermo-Spruce lasts up to 2X longer than Cedar wood? Every Salus barrel begins with industry-leading 1.65” thick full-length staves that encapsulate the sauna and provide exceptional thermal resistance (R-value). This chemical-free, eco-friendly wood is dimensionally stable and ideally suited for outdoor saunas. We even build showers out of it! Wood thickness provides bathers with crafted benches and backrests from Thermo-Aspen (1.1” thick and 3-1/2” wide) nearly 50% thicker than most.
Ingenuity - Engineered to exceed expectations
Don’t let the simple design and installation process fool you, this series is jam-packed with barrel sauna innovation. Go ahead and splash the water, these beautiful outdoor spaces are built to thrive with water! It begins with industry-leading 1-7/8” wide and 1/8” thick stainless steel barrel bands that compress the massive staves and create your wellness retreat. Then, a watertight DIY shingle kit (a necessity for every barrel sauna) with side-mounted drip edges provides exceptional rainwater management. Inside the barrels are dual floor drains. One is purposefully placed under the sauna heater for your water-tossing pleasure. A second drain is near the door, where cold plunge or pool water may collect. Should this barrel shift out of level, these dual floor drains have you covered.
Illumination – Inside and out
Illuminating your barrel showcases the beauty of the wood and enhances your sauna experience. Only low-voltage and waterproof LED lighting will do. Salus provides a superior white LED lighting system that is Wi-Fi app-based and allows one to set the ideal scene prior to entering the sauna. A hand-held remote control is also provided for on/off/dim operation. Salus’s white LED fixture is heat and water certified (IP67) and is dotless so it provides an enchanting, even glow. Expandable up to four white fixtures, explore the available E Sconce+ Package which provides two striking out-door LED wall sconces and a secondary interior LED lightbar for ideal outdoor sauna ambiance. For the ultimate backyard sauna party attraction, consider adding E MOOD Lighting Package for both the inspirational and relaxing visual effects that an infinite range of color affords.
Beauty – A compliment to most any outdoor oasis
Salus sources the highest quality Nordic Spruce and dries it to a rich golden color that accentuates its distinctive grain and rustic tight-knot charm. The barrel interior benefits from designed benches and backrests of ultra-smooth Thermo-Aspen, a grade-A wood species that is rich in color, and free from knots. A complimentary bottle of paraffin oil, a natural wax, is provided to enrich and preserve the interior luster.
The Vista Front Glass home sauna is designed and precision-crafted in Northern Europe where sauna bathing is a healthy part of everyday life. Enjoy a lifetime of wellness in your own backyard!

I had a great experience working with Salus Saunas and specifically with Jeff. He was extremely patient, kind, and answered all of my questions throughout the process, including prior to and even after delivery. I decided to purchase the Vista Barrel Sauna with the glass front and I am extremely satisfied: it is the perfect size for four people, it fits nicely in our backyard, and the red cedar is really beautiful.|
I’m picky, so I’ve been told. But this experience could not have been better. Well engineered, great material, and Jeff was great to work with!|
Great product, excellent customer service. I had a panel show up that was warped and they replaced it within a week as part of their warranty. Currently roasting daily at 170 degrees.|
Extremely happy with my barrel sauna. Easy to install and a great functioning and well built sauna with nothing left to spare. It’s become the jewel of my home and an essential part of my routine. I don’t know how I went without one for so long. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made for my health and enjoyment.|
After looking online for a Barrel Sauna, I stumbled on Mark at Salus Saunas. I am a try before you buy kinda guy, so I finagled a showing.On first appearance it's exactly what you're looking for in a barrel sauna. Good cedar, super hot, comfy and steamy. Mark offers great customer service, and you can tell that up front.The Sauna I viewed had been in the Northwest Rain for 3 years so far, and looked and worked great. The only complaint I would have was the door clasp, which Mark said they had fixed in newer models.But as this is a first review, I'll keep it short. I just ordered one that will arrive in January of 2019. So I'll update everyone then. They've set the bar pretty high so I look forward to writing a second review when it arrives.|
