U pscale hotel options are plentiful in Copenhagen so it’s simple to select exactly what suits. For a soothing sanctuary that still allows easy access to the city, Kurhotel Skodsborg is perfect – a spectacular spa hotel on the grounds of a royal country estate by the sea. The rooms are sumptuous with sweeping vistas and include unlimited access to the impressive spa. The spa and fitness centre was designed by Henning Larsen Architects to be a paradise with simplicity and light and they nailed the brief. With 16 different bathing experiences and an array of treatments, it’s an ideal place to unwind. The philosophy of the spa is based on principles devised Dr Carl Ottosen, namely that a healthy life requires light, air, water, nutrition, exercise and rest. The rest of the Kurhotel Skodsborg is also a triumph. Solid design sensibilities meet simple Nordic traditions to create a relaxed atmosphere with an expertly curated décor. Considering the royal roots and that the property has racked up 115 years of experience providing luxurious facilities, it’s no surprise that it’s a popular haven. If it’s the opposite of tranquillity that appeals then opt for Nimb, a venerable institution in the city. This Moorish-inspired palace that lines one side of the famous Tivoli Gardens theme park is a paragon of fine dining and luxurious accommodation. The façade's arabesques of Italianmarble stucco contrast with stunning interiors that showcase contemporary Nordic design. And with six renowned restaurants to choose from, at least one meal is guaranteed to be excellent.
