Steam Room
This is a facility that helps to increase circulation to the skin and cause it to break into a sweat. There are therapeutic health benefits listed below that you may want to try:
Having a steam bath is an exhilarating experience, sometimes almost spiritual.
Steam baths alleviate stress and tension and promote healing.
It is known to reduce the problem of sleeplessness.
Thorough detoxification is one of the steam room benefits.
The body excretes toxins through the millions of sweat glands that are present.
Perspiration caused by a steam bath helps to eliminate up to 30% of the toxins that have built up in the body.
A steam bath causes all the blood vessels to expand, increases circulation oxygenation, and enables efficient cellular nutrient uptake.
A steam bath relieves respiratory complaints. The humidity in the air makes it easier to breathe. Phlegm and allergens are dislodged from the nasal and throat passages. It reduces asthma and its recurring symptoms. Bronchitis, hoarseness of the throat, and coughs are known to get better after a steam bath. Inflammation of the mucus membranes of the upper respiratory tract is reduced.
Many steam baths are known to include aromatherapy to increase the therapeutic effects. They evaporate eucalyptus oil along with the steam. This is known to clear nasal passages and provide a relaxing and soothing effect.
Other oils are sometimes added to alter the moods and bring in a feeling of relaxation.
Steam room benefits also include weight loss. There is a good amount of water weight that is lost during a steam bath. It is possible that you can lose up to 600 calories by spending 30 minutes in a steam bath.
A steam bath relieves people who suffer from the bad effects of sinusitis. A steam bath effectively moisturizes the skin. It opens up the pores on the skin and flushes away the impurities. The skin quality and radiance improve. People with skin disorders like eczema, acne, and dry and chapped skin experience positive benefits.
The increased blood circulation improves achy muscles and joints.
It works to strengthen the immune system of the individual. Steam bath sessions purportedly increase the production of white blood cells. This consequently increases the number of phagocytes that ingest bacteria, old red blood cells, and other microorganisms, and leukocytes that destroy invading organisms.
After a workout, a steam bath allows for faster recovery of the torn and injured muscles due to increased blood flow. You can hit the gym the next day morning with increased vigor.

Safety Tips:
Steam room benefits are optimized and a steam bath is a pleasant experience when you keep the following tips in mind:
Drink plenty of water before a steam bath to avoid dehydration.
A time limit of 15 minutes is ideal for a steam bath session.
In case you feel lightheaded or dizzy, it is time to get out of the steam bath.
If you have a medical condition such as acute rheumatoid arthritis, you are pregnant, you have heart problems or you have a severe infection, it is a good idea to consult a medical specialist before you opt for a steam bath. Steam rooms increase heart rates thus you need to be careful about the amount of time you can spend in the steam bath if you are hypertensive. Steam bath sessions cannot be for too long as the body does not have the opportunity to cool itself. The body sweats but the sweat does not evaporate in the humid atmosphere. This causes the body temperature to rise quickly and is a risk factor.

Outdoor Excursions

At the Windsor, we have made it possible to offer our guests up-close experiences in coffee farming. For a small fee, you will be taken on a tour to see what makes a wonderful cup off coffee. You will see the whole production process from a coffee berry in the plantation to ground coffee ready to drink. After the visit, you carry away a packet of coffee beans or ground coffee to carry away.

Bird Watching

For the Bird Watchers, Windsor is facilitated by the indigenous forest, which acts as a home to many bird species. Birds often perch on branches of the tall trees while others skulk, piping and preening on the undergrowth vegetation. Before venturing into the forest, our resident ornithologist will give you a briefing on what to expect. In a day this event is preferable from 6:30 am – 9:00 am and later in the evening at around 3.30 – 6.30 PM.
Some of the bird life you will spot right from the start are the Blacksmith Prorer, Fiscal Shrike, Speckled mousebird and the Egyptian geese while in the forest you will find Cormorants, Herons, White pelicans, African fish eagle among others.
The only endemic species we have at Windsor is the speckled mousebird, which nests at the main entrance to the hotel. Also the Hertrab Turaco, which migrates to the forest within the months of, May – June and happens to be quite a noisy bird.

During the walk:
Keep a good distance from any nest – try not to walk past a nest as this disturbs the incubating birds every time you pass.
Avoid throwing stones into the bush to flush out birds
Avoid playbacks when birds are breeding (i.e. tape recording of bird songs to attract birds) – this could be stressing to the birds

What to carry:
Binoculars ·
A pen & notebook ·
A field guide book ·
A digital camera.
