KURHO­TEL SKODS­BORG, NEAR COPEN­HAGEN, DEN­MARK

IN­VIG­O­RAT­ING AND RE-ENERGISING THE NAT­U­RAL WAY

Irish Daily Mail - YOU - - WELL BEING -

Who’d have thought a pul­veris­ingly hot sauna fol­lowed by a dip in the chilly Baltic would be the high­light of our (ini­tially scep­ti­cal) tester’s week­end at the lux­ury Kurho­tel Skods­borg, a 15-minute train ride from Copen­hagen? This hearty spa treat­ment known as a Sau­naGus, de­signed to strengthen one’s im­mune sys­tem, left her ‘with red, blotchy skin, which the sauna mis­tress said was ex­cel­lent be­cause it showed my cir­cu­la­tion had wo­ken up. Af­ter­wards I felt fan­tas­tic – less stressed, truly in­vig­o­rated and re-en­er­gised.’ The spa also of­fers a va­ri­ety of other re­lax­ing sauna and wa­ter ex­pe­ri­ences in­clud­ing a salt grotto and mas­sage show­ers, plus ex­er­cise and yoga classes, and Nordic beauty treat­ments. Af­ter­wards you can hire a bike and head to the lo­cal beach and woods.

Dou­ble room b&b with full use of the spa, in­clud­ing Sau­naGus ses­sions, from €190 a night; skods­borg.dk
