#5 Alta Series Sauna

The Alta Sauna Series by Amerec is absolutely stunning to look at. It features some of the finest craftsmanship in the industry as well as a functioning interior. They also provide a transparent front that is pleasing to the eye and catches the attention of many buyers.


Each Alta Sauna is crafted from hand selected and finished boards of the finest quality woods. Unique angles and curves, precision finished doors and windows, and abundant use of glass give these saunas an elegant and upscale feel. The appearance of the saunas echoes the company's own words, “Once you step into an Amerec Signature Sauna, you’ll feel like you’ve entered your own private paradise.”

The features of this sauna are limited. It has all of the basic features of a regular sauna but prioritizes luxury over functionality, although we really do think they knocked it out of the park appearance wise.

Highlighted Features of the Amerec Sauna Series

  • Interior and exterior of clear Western Red Cedar
  • Elegant exterior lighting
  • Interior lighting
  • Angled benches to complement the neo angle wall
  • Headrests and curved backrests


Our obvious complaint about this sauna is that it tries too hard to get by with looks alone. This is a cause for concern because you miss out on the many health benefits a sauna can provide. Notably, these saunas aren't infrared, which a big red flag. Because infrared saunas are the benchmark for sauna healing therapies, we wonder the reason why some companies still hold on to making steam saunas.
