Our Favorite Skodsborg Spa Treatments

K-Lift Facial – you will feel younger with newly healed skin and a smooth overall complexion, guaranteed. Check it out here.

Saunagus – what an experience! Recently just made Copenhagen’s popular AOK’s top things to do in Copenhagen list and I now know why! Opt for Tina’s Saunagus session, learn how to breath, relax and endure extreme heat and then revel in the cooling mist showers afterwards. The experience is a must.

Sports Massage – there is nothing like a good masseur who knows how to reach your deepest muscles that are craving a little attention after long days at the desk. Rest assured only the best of the best staff in Denmark are here at the hotel. Simply heavenly. Check it out here.

Our Favorite Skodsborg Fitness

Get healthy on your holiday with Denmark’s top trainers, Ole Cosmus and Thomas Rode Andersen and don’t be afraid of Ole’s 25 years military training, because his crossfit is designed for all levels including 20 year olds and 90 year olds, seriously, and it’s fun and it’s located on the rooftop terrace with views to the ocean!

You will also love the hotel’s TRX classes, Spin classes, and definitely sign up for an ashtanga yoga session located on the top floor in a calming room with floor to ceiling windows looking out to beautiful leafy green forests surrounding you outside. The setting is absolutely stunning! The best part is, the fitness classes are included in your stay.

The hotel’s mandate is simple Nordic tradition where nature and beauty meets innovation and passion, and Kurhotel Skodsborg is just that. We highly recommend opting for a courtyard facing room where you will rest peacefully and enjoy views to the courtyard and to the sea. Simply heavenly.

 

Relaxing, cozy and comfy rooms at Skodsborg. Definitely opt for a courtyard facing room.
