Marstrand. An idyllic island with unique possibilities for rest, recovery and recreation. With an intriguing history as a royal getaway that few other places can rival. People have been enjoying therapeutic sea bathing here since the early 1800s and for many years the island of Marstrand was the centre of the seaside culture that developed in Sweden, inspired by the German, British and Dutch coastal resorts. Sweden’s King Oscar II spent nearly every summer between 1887 and 1907 on Marstrand, endowing the island with royal glamour. ‘Kungsplan’ developed into a natural hub for the vibrant social activities that have made Marstrand the popular destination it is today.
Against the fantastic backdrop of the Bohuslän archipelago, we’ve opened Kurhotellet Marstrand, with every intention of writing a new chapter in the history of this beautiful health resort. The hotel centres on the hot and cold bath houses that were built in 1843 around Kungsplan on the island of Marstrand. Societetshuset, the adjacent assembly rooms built in 1886, is also part of our new facility and its rich heritage. The buildings have been lovingly renovated to retain their old world charm, creating a peaceful oasis that soothes mind, body and spirit.
Kurhotellet Marstrand is an authentic retreat hotel that offers unique possibilities for relaxation, recovery and wellness. The hotel is also a fantastic venue for weddings and other celebrations, with top-quality accommodation and banquets for large parties.
But our magnificent location and setting are what really set us apart. The sea and the tranquility, the refreshingly cool water and the peaceful sunsets.
