Stockholm Q & A: Where can I find a good spa?

Stockholm Q & A: Where can I find a good spa?
A reader wants to take his girlfriend to a spa in Stockholm for her birthday. But which one? Peter Vinthagen Simpson has the answer.

My girlfriend’s birthday is next month, and I really want to book her some pampering in a spa in Stockholm. Can you recommend a good one?

While there are a few more obvious choices closer to the city centre – such as the stately Centralbadet or the plush Sturebadet, my choice would be to send her packing to Stockholm’s own slice of the far east – Yasuragi in Hasseludden.

The Japanese-themed spa is an oasis of calm, beautifully located by the water as the city’s pulse moves over to the quiet simplicity of the island archipelago.

They have various offers for both overnight guests and day visitors and have established a reputation as a family-friendly destination.

To sate the appetite the spa offers a choice of two first class restaurants where you can savour the finest flavours from Japanese and Asian cooking.

Yasuragi is the Japanese word for inner peace and offers all the pampering that any deserving partner could desire.

Do you have a question about Stockholm – a particular type of restaurant, a special place to stay, or perhaps you’d like to know more about the history of a building or area? Whatever your question, drop a line to Peter Vinthagen Simpson and he’ll try to answer.
