we currently have four saunas available for private rental, each with different seating arrangements, natural light features and decks and stoops for lounging and sitting. we hope you try them all! our saunas fit 1-6 people, with 6 being doable but definitely cozy. sauna #4 is more spacious and can fit up to 8 people.
we charge a flat rate per session. a visit is more affordable when shared with friends.
sauna #1-3: $120 for 1.5 hr session (6 ppl max)
sauna #4: $140 for 1.5 hr session (8 ppl), or $120 for those requiring ramp access.
[if your party exceeds the maximum capacity, you will be charged for the cost of an additional sauna rental]
you can purchase a gift certificate by sending a venmo payment of $120 to @goodhot. please include your name & email in the notes section, and we will send you the gift certificate and instructions that you can forward to the recipient.
there are changing cubicles, two communal showers for rinsing off, and a porta potty on site. we also have open cubbies for stashing your belongings.
beach & water
there is a small beach next to the saunas, accessible by a short stairway, perfect for a cold plunge after breaking a sweat inside (it’s possible to access the water most of the day except for very low tide so if you’re set on getting in the water, be sure to check the tide charts before reserving your slot!). we ask that you not go further than 20 feet offshore and discourage swimming, as there are often strong currents and there is no lifeguard on duty. currently, the beach is not accessible for wheelchair users.
we ask that guests come with their pods or all vaccinated people only. if you are feeling sick or having any symptoms, we ask that you do not use the saunas. because our communal facilities are exclusively outdoors, we do not require guests to wear masks. in between each use, we wipe down all surfaces, and air out and let the saunas run at 175 degrees for 10 minutes. we wear masks while cleaning the saunas.
parties, events, retreats
we are happy to make our space available for private parties. please contact us for more info on pricing.
unfortunately, children are not permitted up at good hot (18+ only).
the area is an active industrial site with tenants coming and going, so unless your dog can comfortably and quietly hang out in your car, we ask that you leave them at home.
we are open on thursday, saturday and sunday, from 9:30 AM - 8:00 PM. visits are all by reservation only, there is no drop-in bathing.
we release reservation dates in small batches, for up to 3 weeks out. we unfortunately cannot hold spots in advance (unless you are planning a party - see below for more info). we are a small operation and this keeps things manageable for us :)
what to bring
swimsuit (disrobing permitted in the saunas but we ask that you wear a cover in the public areas), a towel (2 is even better, one for drying off, one for lying on), sandals or water shoes for the beach (a requirement for getting in the water! it is a bit rocky on the way out), and plenty of drinking water. feel free to bring snacks for after your session.
our venue, point san pablo, is an active industrial park we share with our fellow tenants; truckers, contractors, a potter, and campers spending a night in the open air. it’s a beautiful corner of the bay made all the more special by it’s eclectic mix of activities and history. you will receive specific instructions with a gate code and directions in your confirmation email. we are a no-smoking facility.
we will issue a full refund up to 48 hours before your reservation time, after which there will be no refund. if for some reason we have to cancel (high smoke advisory, severe weather) we will try to contact guests 24 hours in advance of their reservation and issue a full refund.
sauna #4 is our wheelchair-accessible sauna. our booking site price is $140 because of its higher max capacity, but is offered at $120 for those requiring ramp access (apply the code ADA_ACCESS at checkout). if possible, please contact us in advance so that we can remove the benches from the sauna to accommodate a wheelchair.
we offer worker-owners of other cooperatives a discounted rate to support them and their work building economic justice through workplace democracy. email us with the subject line “worker-owner” for the coupon code.
reduced rate sessions
we’re experimenting with different ways to make visits accessible to more people! for the month of march, we are offering a limited number of 50% off reduced rate visits for QTBIPOC who may not be able to come otherwise. first come first serve, limit one per person per month. please fill out this form to receive a coupon.
