This hotel in Sweden is planning on making all the other hotels and spas around the world look like shabby holes.

The beautiful circular Arctic Bath Hotel and Spa will be located on the Lule River in Luleå, a coastal city on the Gulf of Bothnia, north of the Arctic Circle in Swedish Lapland. Designed by architects Bertil Harström, Johan Kauppi, and Annkathrin Lundqvist, the hotel, meant to resemble floating timber, will rest on the river during the summer and freeze in the ice during the winter.

Slated to open in February 2020, the hotel will consist of six cabins on land and six floating cabins. The spa will be in the main floating hotel and feature several saunas, a hot bath, and an outdoor cold bath around which visitors can sunbathe or winter bathe. The floating hotel will also have a lounge, shop, bar, and a restaurant.

Different wellness treatments will be available to guests and those who wish to take a break from all the pampering can take part in the many nature activities around the hotel.

You can now book stays between February 2020 through February 2021 by visiting the hotel’s booking page, with rates starting around $845 per night.
