ME1 Sauna and Steam celebrates 10years at the top!

This year, ME1 sauna in Rochester celebrates 10 years in business and serving the LGBTQ community of Kent and London. We chatted with owner Tim Basset who told us all about the last 10 years!

Tim says..

From day one we knew the Medway Towns, in fact Kent as whole was crying out for a place where the gay community could relax, unwind and feel safe, This was the Birth of ME1 Sauna and Steam!

Finding the right premises was not the easiest thing, it needed to be perfect , in terms of layout  and location and most importantly, discretion. 

We really went to town on making sure ME1 Sauna and Steam had everything our customers needed. Packed across three floors we have a state of the art, fragranced Digital Steam Room, traditional Swedish style Sauna with mood enhancing lighting, a Huge jacuzzi “Chill Space” with blissed out video visuals and music to enhance your experience along with two floors of relaxation zones to explore – there really is something for everyone!

We have always been at the heart of Customer service! from day one we have always provided FREE tea and coffee, which only adds to the great value for money entrance price ME1 Sauna and Steam offers. Our Standard entrance price is an amazing £13, Other venues struggle to compete with us!

10 years really has gone by so quickly and, as with any business it’s not been without its difficulties. Covid-19 was a particularly hard time for us, Thankfully we have a strong and loyal customer base who stuck it out with us and soon returned after an extended period of Closure. ME1 Came bouncing back, with the necessary protective measures in place ME1 Sauna and Steam went from strength to strength.

I think the key success for ME1 Sauna and Steam has been our ability to listen and engage with our Customers. We’re always striving for new and innovative ways to make sure the Customers experience is a great one, every single time. 

We invest a great deal of time and money in making sure our staff teams really do “go the extra mile” Too often Male Saunas can be quite a daunting visit. from the moment you set foot in the door, customers are made to feel welcome and as our motto says, “With service and a smile!”

Our reputation is built on our standards of hygiene and cleanliness and our team are fully invested in making sure our high standards do not fall short during your visit.

Over ten years we have developed in leaps and bounds, introducing new and exciting events to cater to everyone. The first of these events, “strictly naked” which gives our customers the chance to experience ME1 Sauna and Steam as nature intended – In the buff! this has always been one of our busiest and liveliest events and just keeps getting better!

“Furry Friday” which predominately welcomes Bears, Cubs and Chasers, started life as a monthly sauna Social, however we soon realised, it was fast becoming one of the biggest and “Furriest” events in the south east. Furry Friday now runs twice a month on the Second and Last Friday of the Month.

Bi-Monthly is our unique event, catering to Male and Female Couples, Single Guys and Females looking for something “a little extra” We literally turned the swinging scene upside down and took away the Stigma and “Clique” that sometimes is apparent on the swinging Circuit. A relaxed atmosphere, Great music all set in a super-sexy environment which strips out any uncomfortable barriers and instantly makes you feel relaxed. Bi-Monthly takes place on the Second and last Saturday of the month.

Afternoon T anyone? this event offers our growing T-girl community the chance to feel safe and relaxed in friendly, welcoming space. Launched in January 2022, this event rocketed and now attracts T-Girls and their admirers from all over London and the Southeast. It really is the “must have” on any T-Girls Social Calendar. 

Offering dedicated changing areas and a uniquely mixed soundtrack for the day, it really is the opportunity to be yourself and make some great friends.

ME1 Sauna and Steam has always been proud to be gay owned and operated and this will never change. ME1 is more than just a Sauna, its a community, which has blossomed over 10 years into something rather special, its kind of hard to put into words what makes ME1 Sauna and Steam so unique, the difference can only been felt once you make a visit, you’ll soon see what makes us special!

The thanks and love, goes without saying for our amazing Customers over the last 10 years, you truly have made ME1 Sauna and Steam what it is today.
