A visit at Salt Creek Spa is truly an experience for both body and soul. The location, right by the sea, makes a fantastic background and setting for an equally amazing Spa.

Inside you’ll find a heated swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna as well as an indoor ice-hole. Through a glass door you’ll reach the asian inspired warm low-water pool with a soft undercurrent, right in front of an open fire. If you are more into the steam sauna, you’ll find these in the respective changing rooms.

Outside there are four hot springs, and down by the sea, a lovely dry sauna with an amazing view over the open waters. Upstairs, you’ll find the relax. Two separate rooms with big, cloudy beds that encourages moments of relaxation and reflection. The brighter room, Seaview, has an amazing view of Östersjön, while in Fireview you listen to the cracking from the fireplace in the middle of the room.

A wonderful setting for our yoga conference to say the least! Please visit the Salt Creek Spa at their website for more information and pictures:
