SaunaLife EE8G Upper Bench Barrel Sauna

1 review|1 answered question

Experience truly elevated heat and steam with the extra large SaunaLife EE8G barrel sauna kit.  Its remarkable 91″ in diameter and included flat floor creates an inspiring space for stretching out or enjoying the views without bumping knees with the person across from you.

Upper benches mean your feet will rise above the cool floor and take comfort in ergonomic clear aspen benches, approximately 20 inches in depth to invite laying down.

Like all SaunaLife barrel saunas, the thermowood is sourced and milled in Northern Europe with thermally modified Nordic spruce, resulting in a beautiful warm tone that lasts longer than cedar without expanding and contracting.

The EE8G comes standard with a full glass front wall, extra thick 1.65″ staves, asphalt shingles, flat floor kit, and an LED light kit.  The SaunaLife EE8G may be the best performing, longest lasting barrel sauna ever.


Choose an Electric Barrel Sauna for a cleaner, more controllable environment with Wi-Fi options. Choose electric controls if on a budget, or for simple installation with less parts. Choose a wall controller for Wi-Fi options and more control. Daily User? Consider a Harvia Forte. Steam Lover? Consider a Harvia Virta Combi or Saunum Air. Like it HOT? Consider any HUUM option. Want the optimal conditions throughout the sauna with the most control? Consider a Saunum Air. All electric heaters include stones and free shipping.

Protect your controller, power box, and other outdoor elecrical equipment

Wood stoves provide unmatched traditional charm. The SaunaLife EE8G is the most recommended wood stove barrel sauna, with plenty of room to safely operate the fire.

SaunaLife EE8G

The Ultimate in Durability, Comfort, and Performance

ee8g barrel sauna with upper bench and thermowood

The experts at SaunaLife thought long and hard about what the perfect barrel sauna would look like.  A dream checklist was made.  No one thought it was possible.  The SaunaLife EE8G Delivers.

Everything is Elevated, Starting With Your Feet

The biggest criticism about barrel saunas is they don't get your feet high enough.  Ideally, you want the entire body elevated on an upper bench where sauna conditions are improved by physics.  

Other barrel sauna companies have tried to achieve this by putting an upper bench on the back wall.  The problem, then, is the heater has to go off to the side along the front wall and necessarily rises along with the benches, negating the effect.

The SaunaLife EE8G is the first barrel sauna available in North America that keeps the heater in the optimal low position while providing an upper bench on both sides.

The result will blow you away.

Q & A

How hot will the SaunaLife EE8G Upper Bench Barrel Sauna with Havia 8kw? I can not find a temperature on the site. If we move forward with the full front window option have you all seen that the window doesn’t hold heat as well as wood? Tucker Burke asked on

Hi Tucker, the glass absolutely has an effect on the heat retention but that's always considered. We would never sell a sauna combination that we don't expect to reach 180-194°f in your climate zone.
