Ystad Saltsjöbad

a hotel, spa and conference centre that has been in existence for 110 years

Day and evening itineraries are scheduled around time at the beach or at Salt Creek SPA, where traditional renewing treatments mingle with exclusive therapies like the 10-step Creek Experience. Conference space comprises five meeting rooms totaling 643 square meters, and an in-house coordinator is on hand to help with wedding arrangements. The resort rounds out the wellness experience with three restaurants, a fitness center, and multiple pools and whirlpools.

Embracing Newport style, the sophisticated Salt Creek SPA is a beachfront haven of tranquility. A menu of classic treatments include deep tissue, Swedish, and tui na massage, anti-aging facials, and algae and mineral wraps, but the signature Creek Experience is truly one therapeutic ritual to try: Spa-goers begin this 10-step service with a soothing footbath before moving to such stations as a hammam, rasul, pool, and various saunas. The Total Tranquility is another signature staple; as its name suggest, the body treatment is all-encompassing, thoroughly combining a body scrub, warm oil wrap, face cleanse and scrub, and full-body massage. Products used in spa services encompass [comfort zone], Pür minerals, Nordic spa, BareMinerals, Bioline, and Brilliantsmile.

The 910-square-meter Salt Creek SPA has 11 treatment rooms, accompanied by three pools, three whirlpools, and three saunas.

Facilities & Amenities

Aside from the spa, guests can recapture harmony of mind and body in the 80-square-meter fitness center, or during one of the many exercise classes such as Bodypump, yoga, Zumba, and step and water aerobics. Ystad Saltsjöbad also has a tennis court and indoor and outdoor pools with sun-dappled sea views. When not frolicking on the stretch of white-sand beach, visitors can head to Ystad’s striking medieval town center; visit the Ales Atenar ship, which dates back to the Nordic Iron Age; and explore the city’s several museums. Guided Wallander tours, based upon the novels by Swedish author Henning Mankell, are also among the popular tourist activities. As well, Österlen is worth the short drive to view its majestic nature and verdant farmland.
