Indoor swim spa room finishes


Hi, I'm interested in installing a spa in my basement (walk-out). The existing walls are mostly stud walls and one wall of concrete. I am concerned about containing the moisture to that room - it does have
multiple windows and we are in a very arid climate.

I have considered membraning the entire room, including the ceiling, and installing cedar planking on the ceiling and possibly a metal or laminate on the walls. The floor is concrete.

Is there a highly-rated moisture-proof drywall, other than concrete board for tile available? I am open to suggestions. Thank you. Russ
