Sparadiset opened in 2017 in Fågelbrohus out on Värmdö in the Stockholm archipelago, and at Krusenbergs Herrgård outside Uppsala. In beautiful natural surroundings, they offer relaxing treatments, among them deep massage, facial treatments and luxury treatments. Ramp up the luxe factor still further by booking a whole weekend at one of the hotels.
City centre oasis
Check in to Downtown Camper by Scandic on Brunkebergstorg in the heart of town and treat yourself to an entire weekend of wellbeing in The Nest, the hotel's wellness centre at the top of the building. Admire the view over the Old Town from the year-round rooftop pool, take a sauna and order some healthy snacks and drinks from the roofbar.

Oriental on Lidingö
The Turkish bathhouse Blue Hamam is open for both day visits and overnight stays, but the treatments and surroundings definitely sway you towards the latter. You'll find everything here from the heated marble slabs of the hamam bathhouse and massage to kundalini yoga and Mediterranean food. The bathing ritual alone is worth the journey.

Leave the city and recharge your batteries
What could be more beneficial than leaving town after a long working week and treating yourself to a hotel and spa on a rocky cliff that feels far away from everything but is actually quite close... Hotell Havsbaden in Grisslehamn ticks all the boxes, from the seafront location and deckchairs on the terrace to a steam room and plunge pool. Total relaxation before it's time to return to everyday life with renewed energy.
A real treat in castle surroundings
With its origins in the 19th century and inspiration from Italy, Rånås Slott is a gorgeous dream of a spa for any stressed-out city dweller.

Don't miss a massage with hot lava stones, or a cleansing whole body peeling treatment.
Rebalance at a modern hamam
Turkish baths and healthy rebalancing await you out in Nacka in the historic Saltsjökvarn building which is home to Sturebadet's sister spa. A modern hamam with invigorating treatments and exclusive curative tretaments on the menu.
