A Finnish-Inspired Spa by Way of Portland, OR
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Löyly is the Finnish word for the steam that rises up when water is poured over hot sauna rocks—it's also the apt name of a stylish spa located in southeast Portland, Oregon. Owner Jessica Kelso was inspired by the sauna culture of Scandinavia when she created Löyly; working with architect Brendon Farrell , Kelso created a serene sanctuary featuring a polished concrete floor, simple red lockers, and stainless sinks. Prices are reasonable, and there's a tiny adjacent bar offering tea as well as wine and beer; go to Löyly for more information. N.B.: This post is an update; the original story ran on August 2, 2010.
