Are you considering your next spa break away and wanting to try somewhere new: enter Naantali Spa hotel, located in the beautiful Turku archipelago on the south-western coast of Finland.
This tranquil spa is set within an expanse of unique and naturally unspoilt landscape, which stretches far into the distance. The spa resort takes advantage of its picturesque seafront location, with heated pools overlooking the ocean and many activities on offer on the water. Encapsulating the epitome of Finnish luxury, the spa is the ideal retreat for those looking for a relaxing respite in a village rich in charm and history surrounded by some of nature’s most scenic vistas.
Facilities in the spa include a gently bubbling Roman bath, massaging jets in the recreational pool and a heated outdoor pool maintained at 30 degrees all year round. This full-service spa includes five therapeutic saunas and over 40 treatment rooms, meaning an extensive menu of treatments awaits including Shiatsu massages, peat treatments and Indian therapy as well as a hair salon and beauty boutique.
Aside from the day spa, Naantali Spa’s location allows visitors to experience a wealth of local activities. Strolls through the historic and charming maritime village of Naantali are a must with its cobblestoned alleys and chic boutiques, as is a visit to neighbouring Turku, the previous capital of Finland. The archipelago itself also provides a myriad of adventure opportunities during summer and winter including island hopping by boat, cycling tours, sailing, ice skating on the frozen water, and cross-country skiing. Just across the waters of the archipelago is the iconic MoominWorld adventure park, located in memory of the storybook’s author whose hometown was Naantali. Fans of all ages can meet their favourite Moomin characters, watch them in theatre and explore the magical kingdom.
Following either your action-packed adventure or rejuvenating spa experience, guests can retreat to the luxury hotel and spa residences. With 251 guest rooms including a variety of suites and apartments – some with private saunas and seaside views – to cater for all accommodation requirements, Naantali Spa and hotel is suited to both couples and families. Delightful Moomin-themed Story Rooms are available for family bookings to bring the Moomin magic back to their hotel with them.
The on site dining options offer a vast array of restaurants to choose from, each and every guest’s taste buds are guaranteed to be tantalised. From the exquisite Le Soleil restaurant, to the oriental Thai Garden, relaxed TK’s Brasserie and the poolside Havana bar.
Arguably one of Northern Europe’s best kept secrets, the Naantali Spa offers an unforgettable holiday for a relaxing spa retreat, with or without the family, set against a magnificent natural wonder with access to a world-class spa and adventure right on your doorstep.
