Just returned from a short trip to Sweden. I stayed overnight at YSB as I have been wondering for a long time about this place. This Spa Hotel has been all over my social media platforms and I was very curious about all the fuzz. Here´s my humble thoughts about the place.
Let me just say WOW, and repeat it over and over again WOW WOW WOW.
First of all I love the decor and the environment, but mostly I love when hotels embrace Christmas, and I thinks its fair to say that a visit at YSB get´s you in the Christmas spirit.
We had a smooth check in and as we arrived prior check in time, we had a great opportunity the get a traditional open sandwich with Scrimps and a glass of Rielsing…( well a bottle but hey who´s counting).
We had no trouble spending a few hours lounging around in the different areas in the hotel .. All stunning
First of all it wouldn’t be fair to call it a room. We had the main suite on the 7th floor – with a very beautiful view. We literally woke up to the sound of the ocean and with just a few steps out on the huge bacony it felt like standing right in the middle of the sea.
The main Suite is a small luxurious penthouse apartment with a separate bedroom and a lovely living area. All you need. It´s only because the rest of the areas of YSB are so nice that we wanted to leave the room.
Every meal we had was delicious, and made with love ( well I felt it). For dinner we had a nice 3 course dinner and afterwards we went straight to bed ( Maybe next time 2 courses will be fine).
Great breakfast buffet with a lot of options including making your own waffles… Gotta love that feature.
The spa is lovely and you getting “that” spa feeling no matter where you are in the hotel – not only at the pool and wellness area. You know that kind of relaxed environment that shouts … JUST CHILL. People lounging around in their bathrobes … well it just makes you happy and relaxed.
Please go to YSB web to see pictures from the pool area ( People really don´t like all getting photographed in the spa).
I was surprised in a good way. The short drive from Copenhagen ( It´s very easy by train as well FYI), the service, the surroundings and of course the spa was amazing. I love when you can see the effort in every detail. The only thing ( but for me it´s quite important ) was the poorly wifi connection. I´m not sure if it was only in our room but it was sooooo slow – but again maybe it´s on purpose so that you are not able to work and you can enjoy the spa instead.
Worth every penny (or swedish kroner so to speak). And actually there is a very good offer available right now right here. The perfect Christmas present. It´s on my list!
Will I be back?
Oh yes!! And as much as I loved to stay there with my friend Mascha, I would also love to go there with my family and that is ASAP 🙂

P.S This hotel is great no matter if you are on business or pleasure or with family or friends.
