Danes are focused on their health, and today it’s become commonplace to pay careful attention to nutrition, exercise and sleep. However, more and more people have also discovered spa and wellness treatments as a key to achieving visible and long-lasting results and as a chance to receive personal sparring with regard to their health.
Broccoli and cauliflower soup are no longer enough to maintain a healthy lifestyle. General well-being also requires an untroubled mind. To an increasing extent, many people are choosing to make an active effort to achieve the inner peace that’s needed to lead a healthy life. North Jutland’s spa resorts have experienced a marked increase in the number of visitors during the last 3 years: “Generally speaking, there’s a tendency for spa and wellness to be more and more accessible. There’s more focus on well-being and taking care of yourself in society today, and we’ve seen considerable growth in recent years – also during the low season,” says Brian Fabricius from Hotel Viking.
Personal sparring for a healthy lifestyle Guests at spa resorts enjoy the relaxing treatments and engage the experts as sparring partners in order to prolong the effects of treatment. For many of the guests, it’s important that the treatments provide visible results, and they want to know what they can do in order to maintain such benefits once they get home.
“Our therapists are extremely capable and also know a lot about nutrition and diet. We find that guests often ask a lot of questions and use the therapists as sparring partners who can provide expert guidance and service,” says Managing Director Finn Taul from Læsø Kur.
Many people use a stay at a spa resort as a way of taking a break from everyday life. Guests often choose long treatments such as body massage and special treatments that provide deep relaxation for the entire body.
“There’s a great demand for our therapists’ specialist knowledge. In our experience, visitors ask questions about the ingredients in the products we use and seek good advice about dealing with stress in their everyday lives,” says Peter Christian Jensen from Ruths Hotel.
Well-being without compromise Having finally managed to find time to rediscover tranquillity and spend time with those they love, guests also look for genuine well-being. North Jutland’s spa and wellness resorts are finding that guests are spending more money on treatments. And although treatments continue to receive high priority, health and well-being is generally a holistic experience.
“In our experience, once people have set aside time for a wellness break, they prioritise the whole package and choose treatments, champagne and a great experience. For our guests, it’s about pulling out the plug, and when they finally have the time, they exploit it to the full,” says Activity Manager Sofie Stenild from Romulus at Skallerup Seaside Resort.
Facts: Hotel Viking, Ruths Hotel, Læsø Kur and Romulus at Skallerup Seaside Resort are four spa and wellness resorts that each have their own unique profile. However, they all provide high quality, personal service and exquisite experiences close to the sea, the beach and fresh air.
