drywall installation in sauna/steam room


I have a bathhouse built to enclose a pre-fab cedar wood and plywood sauna/steam room. Half of the room is tiled ceiling to floor. The question is on the side that the steam room will be in stalled. only the floor is tiled. WHAT TYPE OF DRYWALL SHOULD I USE?

imo none, this isn't a good use for any type of drywall. can you continue the tile or cedar?

If you need to use drywall, I would use the new paperless product (has a fiberglass skin rather than paper). I would also paint with one of the wall coatings (paint) that acts as a vapor barrier.

I'm not a pro, but I can't help but think that hardiebacker or some type of cement wall should be used.
