Beautiful place, but not all was completed yet (part of the garden outside). The scrub session in the sauna is a nice and unique experience!
We took a facial cleaning as an option. This was nice and relaxing, but not very effective for the cleaning part.
We had diner as well. The food was really good. Also the fresh milkshake and yoghurt with fruit were good and had a nice presentation on the plate and in the glass.

Minus point: the water is expensive. In my opnion still water must be cheap in a sauna complex. Here it was above 2€ for 25cl, which is a lot. If you order water, you 'd better say if it should be 25 - 50 or 75cl otherwise they bring the largest bottle.

Hello Chantal

Thank you for the nice review. In the meantime a lot has changed again and the gardens are in full growth. We receive many nice compliments on the garden.

The scrub session is indeed rather unique as we invented it ourselves. By now it has become a real attraction at Katara. As far as we know we are the only sauna offering it. Not to forget that you can enjoy it twice every day and for free.

We also try to turn a visit to our sauna into a culinary experience. Glad you liked the food and drinks. Regarding the consumption of water, it is not a habit in belgian saunas to have water for free or to be able to bring your own drinks. Therefore we try to keep our prices on an acceptable level.

We hope te see you soon again in our sauna !

I went here with my fiancée, we chose the 'sweet lovers' arrangement. We had a wonderful day - great massages and treatments, superb saunas with lots of extras and great fresh food in the restaurant. The personnel is very friendly and professional. We got all this for a good price, comparable with other saunas, but here you get a lot more for your money.
The only reason not to give 5 stars is because we missed a quiet room, there were too many people talking in the different relax rooms.

Hello Jc

What a nice review, thank you! Your review is the perfect description of what we stand for : nice settings, good treatments and massages, a nice culinary experience and a friendly and personnal approach and all that offered at reasonable prices.

Right now we have a small rest room. We are preparing bigger rest facilities which should be ready for next winter season. You know the story : Rome neither wasn't build in one day ...
