YSTAD SALTSJÖBAD, YSTAD, SWEDEN
A Baltic’s Sea paradise
We’ve won lots of awards in our 110 year history and we’re particularly proud of our recent World Luxury Spa Award, 2017, the Europe Luxury Resort Spa and Sweden Luxury. Such originality has earned Salt Creek a World Luxury Spa Award this year.
Salt Creek Spa is a Scandinavian gem. Its particularly relaxed sense of luxury comes from its white wooden interiors, log fires and long views across the Baltic Sea just 20 metres from the treatment rooms where guests can experience the [ comfort zone ] facials and rituals.
The spa’s unique ‘Creek Experience’ takes guests on a sensory experience of waterfalls, living walls and misty jungle moods, even a Hamam and Dead Sea salt scrub, all part of a round-the-world sensory spa journey..
“We chose [ comfort zone ] because it is a beautiful and effective professional brand with products to suit everyone – said Laura Nickling, the spa manager at YSTAD SALTSJÖBAD spa manger. All of them have advanced formulas, great textures and beautiful scents which make them so easy to work with”.
BEST TIME TO VISIT YSTAD SALTSJÖBAD: SUMMER AND WINTER
Being a luxury property on the Swedish coast means Ystad Saltsjöbad is equipped to welcome guests in summer - with the long sandy beaches, calm sea and water sports -and in winter thanks to log fires inside and heaters and fire pits for coziness on the outside decking. There’s nothing more invigorating than a sauna, then a sprint to the beach and a dip in the sea!
The whole hotel operates with sustainable principles. We are certified by the Swan. All products are chosen and judged from a lifecycle perspective - meaning we monitor how they are sourced up to how they are discarded.
MOST WANTED BODY TREATMENT: TRANQUILLITYTM PRO-SLEEP MASSAGE
Many guests come to the spa to really relax and they like nothing more than the destressing Tranquility™ Pro-Sleep Massage. An innovative massage acting on three different sensorial pathways: olfactive, tactile and hearing
MOST WANTED FACIAL TREATMENT: REMEDY SOOTHING
Remedy really suits sensitive skin types which is common among our local guests due to the cold and windy winter weather in Sweden.
There are lots: the whole Hydramemory line for its hydrating qualities and the Renight, rich night cream and oil are our best sellers. They all suit the sensitive and dry skin conditions so many guests have.
BEST CULTURAL SPOT: MEDIEVAL TOWN
Nearby Ystad is a medieval town with half-timbered houses, cobbled streets, museums and even a Franciscan monastery. It’s been made famous worldwide by the Wallander TV crime series, with the largest film studio in Scandinavia. That’s a seaside town that has it all!
BEST NATURAL SPOT: ALES STENAR
We are close to 40 km of sandy beach and sit below the rolling countryside of the Skäne region of Southern Sweden. Close by the prehistoric stone circles Ales Stenar, laid out in the shape of a ship, thought to be by the Vikings, crown the Käseberga ridge above the little fishing village of Käseberga on the coast below.
