The Well Spa, Oslo, Norway
The Well is the most incredible wellness spa: a haven nestled in pristine forest on the outskirts of Oslo. Thousands of square feet filled with dozens of pools, saunas, steam rooms and other-worldly treatments. A sanctuary of relaxation with an adjoining Scandi-chic hotel and boutique restaurant, it's the ultimate place to reset.
Whether you prefer to indulge in spa treatments with or without swimwear, it's not a problem at The Well - it's just the saunas that mostly don't allow swimwear, although you can cover yourself with a towel. On any given day maybe half the guests dropped their towels - the rest sported swimsuits or wrap-around sheets.
Whether or not you ditch the towel, make sure you focus on the job at hand: seriously switching off.
Rooms available from £209.68 per night
The spa is a convenient 20-minute drive from Oslo; leave some time to wander the city and enjoy great views from the top of the famous opera house.
By plane: direct flights to Oslo from London take around 2 hours. The hotel is a 45- minute drive from the airport. Book flights to Oslo.
CHARACTER & STYLE
This vast spa hotel is an immersive experience, an escapist alternative reality where you lose track of time and inhibitions; it's completely normal to go for lunch or dinner still clad in a fluffy robe and slippers. Stunning forest views can be enjoyed from the spa and some rooms.
This is the largest spa in Nothern Europe. Opened in 2015, it is spread across three floors, and inspired by the Greek tradition of 'salus per aqua' (health through water). There are 11 pools and 15 saunas and steam rooms. There's also a Japanese bathhouse, a Middle Eastern hammam and Germanic-inspired rituals.
- 11 swimming pools
- Fitness centre
Designed to be a luxurious retreat for guests, bedrooms combine comfort and indulgence which makes for a relaxing feel. Dark woods are paired with warm, rich tones - think sapphire blue comforters and mustard yellow arm chairs. Choose a Signature View or Signature Cover room for a forest view.
Room types: Signature, Signature View, Signature Cove, Deluxe, Junior Suite, Suite
Key amenities: ensuite bathroom with toiletries, king size bed, bathrobe & slippers, tea and coffee facilities, steamer, hair dryer
FOOD & DRINK
Dinner in the spa restaurant is a casual affair where you can dine in your robe. Also relaxed is the Scandi-Asian fine dining restaurant, Mori, although here you will need to wear your clothes. Sample a delicious seven-course tasting menu with bowls that froth and unusually-paired ingredients; the crispy artichoke with a mushroom emulsion was exceptional.
Brasseriet: casual, bistro-style dining. Open for breakfast and lunch daily.
Mori: Scandi-Asian, locally sourced incredients. Tasting menu available. Open Mon-Sat for dinner, closed on Sundays.
