This fashionable, contemporary hotel fits right in with the sleek elegance we've come to anticipate of the Clarion brand. Expect sprawling, ultra-modern rooms with the 'four seasons' theme on each floor adding a creative touch. It’s continued in the day spa with a four-season sauna and swimming pool alongside luxury spa treatments, whilst come evening, the wonderful Kitchen & Table restaurant offers Swedish classics, from reindeer to arctic char. It's all topped off when you look outside; you're just moments away from the gems of the Lulea Archipelago, where Northern Lights, huskies and, come summer, the midnight sun, all vie for your attention.
Enjoy freshly-baked bread, pastries and freshly-squeezed juices for breakfast, handily served from 4am if you’ve got an early start the next day. The real delights begin in the evenings, though, with onsite Kitchen & Table providing classic Swedish dishes in a self-proclaimed 'Northern Lights meet Manhattan' style restaurant. Expect the likes of venison, cloudberries, black grouse, moose and reindeer alongside fine wines and creative cocktails. It's a perfect prelude to a nightcap in the stunning Skybar that serves fresh cocktails and appetisers alongside glorious skyline views. There's even a more casual lobby bar/lounge area, offering fresh coffee and cosy corners, designed to emanate an everyday living room alongside a DJ playing laidback tracks.
Spacious and contemporary is the order of the day, from the most simple bedrooms to the elegant, stylish suites with floor-to-ceiling windows that also offer free admission to the day spa. Extra delights lie in the delicate furnishings and murals adorning the walls and ultra-modern bathrooms. The differing interior on each floor is inspired by the year's four seasons, which, in Swedish Lapland, are all a glorious kaleidoscope of colour, showcased perfectly in sleek design and lighting.
Guests enjoy discounted entry to the stunning day spa, home to a relaxation area, a warm swimming pool overlooking Lulea's skyline and a ‘four seasons' sauna, where different air humidity types create four soothing environments. It's all perfect enjoyed alongside luxurious spa treatments, or for something more rigorous, guests receive free access to the fitness centre with stunning views of Lulea and its port. But it's outside that steals the show, all preserved wooden houses, stone churches and thousands of islands where sandy beaches and rocky shores lie teeming with seals and emblematic red cottages. You're just moments away from the stunning Lulea Archipelago where there's everything from ice fishing and snowshoeing to snowmobiling and husky sledding during winter’s icy clutches. Come summer, swap Northern Lights for the glow of the midnight sun, perfectly explored with cosy forest hikes, mountain biking, kayaking and canoeing trips.
