About Kishtey Çheh

Kishtey Çheh (Hot Box in Manx Gaelic) is a professionally crafted, thermally treated wood fired barrel sauna.


Our home for ‘23 is right on the beach front in Port Erin, with immediate access to one of the best swimming & dipping spots on the Island.

Inspired by travels around Europe - particularly Ireland and admiring the bathing culture there, we decided to bring a slice of this unique experience back to Manx shores.


What does a session look like?

  • Kishtey Cheh is a manned sauna, we’ll always have someone looking after everything so all you have to do is enjoy yourself.

  • Sessions in Kishtey Cheh last an hour - what you do with that time is up to you. Our favourite method is to swim before the start of the session, then head back in for a dip every 15 minutes or so. WARNING! Be prepared to experience a natural high like no other.

  • You can use the public toilets to get changed, we also have a semi-private area to the side of the sauna.

  • We have a fresh water cold shower so you can rinse the sea water off at the end of your session.

  • By default our sessions are shared, so you’ll be using the sauna with other users. You can privately hire the sauna if you’d like to share it with friends or family.

    Anyone over the age of 16 can use the sauna, anyone 5 and over can use the hot tub. Please consult with your doctor before using any sauna or hot tub if you have underlying medical conditions or are pregnant.

  • Is there accessible parking for the Kishtey Çheh sauna?
    Yes there is, we are based on Shore road, Port Erin - with ample nearby parking. During busy periods during summer these spaces fill up fast and you may need to park away from the sea front, so please take this into consideration.
  • How accessible is the Kishtey Çheh spa site for disabled users?
