5 Reasons Why You Should Visit Kurhotel Skodsborg
Located just 30 minutes from Copenhagen, Kurhotel Skodsborg is set between the ocean and the forest and is Denmark's leading luxury health resort. There are many reasons why you should visit this fantastic health retreat, but here are just five to get you started.
According to the Oxford Dictionary, Hygge is defined as “A quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being” Regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture, you can find it in spades at Kurhotel Skodsborg with its warm and inviting interiors, its gorgeous spa and its spectacular Nordic inspired cuisine.
Kurhotel’s signature treatment, SaunaGus is aroma therapy in the sauna. The “Gus Master” works with aromatic oils on the hot sauna oven. Steam is swung around in the sauna using a towel, distributing an oil-infused steam throughout the sauna. The treatment is said to offer many health benefits including strengthening the immune system, boosting circulation and removing toxins from the body. It is also thought to reduce stress levels and fatigue, and also decrease symptoms of conditions like asthma and rheumatism. You can find out more about this unique treatment here.
3. Thomas Rode
A former Head Chef at a Michelin starred restaurant in Denmark, Thomas Rode is now in charge of nutrition and lifestyle at Kurhotel Skodsborg. After giving up the late nights and starting to diet and exercise (he is a devotee of the paleo diet), he stepped out of the kitchen and, among other things at the property, now runs a ‘new kind of men’s club. No port, no cigars’. Instead, there are 7am weekday meetings for a group of CEO types who cross-fit train, swim in the sea and then convene in Rode’s kitchen for breakfasts of muesli and yogurts, goat’s cheese, salmon and avocado.
4. The Activities & Classes
Kurhotel Skodsborg has plenty of fitness activities and classes for those who want some exercise built into their stay. In fact, you can choose from 150 of them each week including TRX, Yoga, Pilates and the terrifying sounding, but very effective Water CrossFit. For those looking for a more gentle approach to exercise, we recommend taking time to walk or cycle in the 1,000 acres of the king’s hunting forest that sits behind the hotel.
5. The Food
As you might imagine, with such an emphasis on health and wellbeing, the aim is to make the food both delicious and healthy. The chefs, who have experience from Michelin star kitchens, have created a menu of light, seasonal dishes, based on New Nordic principles of using the best local ingredients in mouth-watering combinations.
