KURHOTEL SKODSBORG, NEAR COPENHAGEN, DENMARK
INVIGORATING AND RE-ENERGISING THE NATURAL WAY
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
