We are proud to be supporting the team behind the world famous Treehotel in Sweden around the launch of a new floating hotel and spa that freezes into the ice in the winter, and floats on top of the Lule river in the summer giving guests a luxury overnight spa experience, all in a prime spot to experience the Northern Lights.
The Arctic Bath is inspired by the timber floating era, where trees felled in local forests were transported down the river to be processed.
The circular shape of Arctic Bath will house one spa treatment room, four saunas, an outside cold bath, a hot bath, outside and inside showers, and two dressing rooms for customers.
To complete the experience guests will also be able to stay overnight in one of the six hotel rooms that will also float, or be frozen into the ice, depending on the season.
With those behind the project hoping to commence building work imminently, the first guests should be able to stay overnight in the new floating hotel rooms and enjoy the Arctic Bath in early 2019. Once building schedules are finalised, guests will be able to book to stay at the new floating hotel six months in advance of opening day, so watch this space.
The designs created are not only locally relevant and striking, but are also developed with the highest environmental standards in mind, using local materials and with a minimal, to no, impact on the environment.
The open centre of the bath is designed for sunbathing, ice bathing and for those who wish to experience the Northern Lights or starry skies, with the plunge pool itself being kept at a refreshing four-degrees.
