Wellness in Poland: 5 crisp spa hotels on the Baltic Sea is written by Jacob Gowland Jørgensen.
Wellness and spas are big in Poland
The lesser known part of The Baltic Sea is just a short boat ride away Denmark. The beaches are just as beautiful and long as for example at Marielyst on Falster, but there is a difference: The prices, of course, and the selection of spa and spa hotels. Wellness is hot i Poland.
You've probably visited northern Germany, but if you continue east and cross the border into Poland, you'll find some places that stand out. And make no mistake; the level is towering in many places because they get quite a few German spa guests who want quality for the money.
Along the Baltic Sea coast in Poland, you will therefore find a rather large selection of spa hotels, wellness hotels and decidedly spa hotels. Most can do it all, and there are both for you who travel on a budget and for you who would like modern luxury and gastronomic experiences as part of the spa experience.
Here are the editors' suggestions for 5 crisp spa hotels on the Polish Baltic Sea coast for your wellness stay. We have visited all places ourselves, and they all offer spa packages at quite reasonable prices.
Certified wellness in Poland: Hotel Shuum
Kołobrzeg is the tongue-in-cheek name of one of the most visited cities in Poland because it is located on a beautiful beach and is quite close to it German border and the ferry routes from Denmark og Sweden. For example, there is a direct ferry route to Bornholm in the summer period.
The competition between the hotels is therefore also quite large, so it is also in this area that you will find some of the best places to visit.
Hotel Shuum is a so-called 'boutique wellness hotel' that has been completely renovated and rethought and is an obvious choice in the luxury class. Now everything is still much cheaper in Poland. So the prices for a double room are typically DKK 800-900 per person. night with excellent breakfast, yoga, spa and quite a bit more included.
An extra plus is their gourmet restaurant, which has received awards and where the standard nicely matches the level of the real good restaurants in Copenhagen and has its own sommelier and wine cellar. Really delicious and cozy.
Their wellness treatments are certified and everything has been thought of. The hotel is rated 4,5 on Tripadvisor and is an obvious choice.
In Kołobrzeg, the Marine Hotel is located directly on the seafront. It is a large newly renovated hotel with a mildly bizarre statue in front, which tells the story that it was here that the Danish national team lived for the European Football Championship in 2012.
Rooms are large and have sea views, and the hotel has a nice spa area with a small pool and an outdoor jacuzzi.
A double room is available from DKK 600 per person. night including a lot of good cases. The hotel is rated 4,0 on Tripadvisor.
HAVET Hotel Resort & Spa
10 km from Kołobrzeg lies one of the editors' favourites; HAVET Hotel Resort & Spa.
Despite the name, it is not Danish-owned, but the hotel's name comes from a name competition among the employees, who thought that it best signaled the hotel's location and style. And so does it. It is both an elegant and cozy hotel with a really nice and relaxing atmosphere, so you feel welcome quickly.
It has a great location and is as much a modern interpretation of a seaside hotel as a spa hotel.
Rooms are available from DKK 500 per night including a lot of good cases. The hotel is rated 4,0 on Tripadvisor.
Radisson Blu Resort Swinoujscie
Swinoujscie has evolved from being a classic port town to a resort town with a wealth of new hotels and several seafront promenades with restaurants and city life. It is actually a nice area with free outdoor concerts in the summer.
Radisson Blu Resort Swinoujscie is only a few years old, and is a beach version of the well-known hotels. It is located directly on the beach, right on the promenade, and shares a huge water park and spa with the neighboring Hilton hotel.
Radisson Blu Resort Swinoujscie is available from DKK 1000 per night including a lot of delicious food for your wellness stay. The hotel is rated 4,0 on Tripadvisor.
Trzy Wyspy Hotel & Spa
Trzy Wyspy Hotel & Spa is located a few hundred meters from the Radisson Hotel in Swinoujscie and is unlike the others 'only' a 3 star hotel.
It is also a newer hotel, and has a really nice restaurant with a roof terrace and sea view. The rooms are large and nice without being ostentatious, and the hotel naturally has a spa department for your wellness stay.
This hotel stands out in two ways: firstly, there is a really nice atmosphere with very helpful staff, and then the price level is to that extent in order.
If you visit the hotel out of season, you can get a double room for around DKK 600 per person. night. It includes two treatments per day per person in the beautiful wellness area - e.g. massage and skin treatment - as well as half-board.
So for just under 2.000 kroner per person, you can have a wellness stay for a whole week with most things included. It does not appear to be available cheaper and therefore also attracts quite a few mature travelers from all over Northern Europe. Then you have to live with the fact that the name is difficult to pronounce...
The hotel is rated 4,0 on Tripadvisor.
There are also many other good opportunities to find spa hotels and wellness in Poland, especially on the Polish coast, where Sopot close to Gdansk is also obvious. You can easily combine a spa stay with a Christmas trip, where you explore the many beautiful ones Christmas markets, who are in the cities.
Good spa and wellness trip for the beautiful Polish Coast.
