Marstrand. A unique island with unique conditions for peace, recovery and recreation. With a history of royal respite others that few places can match.
In a fantastic environment in the Bohuslän archipelago, you will find Marstrands Kurhotell, a genuine retreat hotel that, in addition to unique opportunities for relaxation, also offers preventive wellness. The hotel is based on the hot and cold bath houses that were built in 1843 around Kungsplanen on Marstrandsön. The adjacent Societetshuset, which was built in 1886, is also part of our new, traditional facility. The buildings have been renovated and a large part of the original atmosphere has been preserved in order to create a quiet and wonderful place for recovery.
People have been swimming here since the early 19th century and Marstrandsön was for a long time the center of the bathing life that emerged in Sweden following the example of the German, British and Dutch coasts. King of Sweden King Oscar II spent almost every summer from 1887 to 1907 on Marstrand, which gave the island a royal splendor. The so-called Kungsplanen became a natural hub for the social life that later made Marstrand the famous place it is today.
