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, massages and facials are available by appointment, and there’s a tiny adjacent bar offering tea as well as wine and beer; go to Löyly for more information.
