A sauna, is a small room or house designed as a place to experience dry or wet heat sessions, or an establishment with one or more of these and auxiliary facilities.
How to Map
Add a node to the center of the sauna or draw an area along the building outline. Tag the node or area with leisure=sauna, instead of the earlier tag amenity=sauna (~1000). A sauna is not a amenity ("a useful and important facility") and suits better as leisure ("a spare-time thing"). People can live well without a sauna. A sauna belongs alongside with map features water parks (leisure). The tag amenity=sauna becomes obsolete and data conversion needs to be done.
