can i use just past simple in this case "

Sorry, I'm late because I was in a sauna with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie all last night

"If I have "all last night is it ok to use just past simple or I better to say:

Sorry, i'm late because I was being in a sauna with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie all last night"

Your second sentence is ungrammatical, because "being" is usually followed by a state or condition, not a location, such as

I was being happy.

Also "all last night" is a bit stilted; from the context, it wasn't any other night.

Finally I would use the definite article here, though I can't explain why. So the sentence becomes

Sorry, I'm late because I was in the sauna with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie all night.
