Spa MArienlyst

Spa and wellness on The Danish Riviera

The Danish Riviera is only 45 min. Drive from Copenhagen, but it is an entirely different atmosphere. 


This is where the wealthy Copenhageners have their summer residences, and it easy to understand why. Along the coastline you find not only charming harbours, old fishing villages with winding streets and some of the best beaches in Denmark, you also find excellent spas.

It could be for a day trip from Copenhagen, but it could also be for a longer trip along The Danish Riviera including a spa day.

We recommend:

Marienlyst Beach Hotel. A four-star beach hotel with a newly opened and excellent spa, which just recently won The Best Spa in Denmark Award. The hotel is situated directly on the beach of Elsinore and can easily be reached by train from the airport and combined with either guided tour of Kronborg Castle or the charming renaissance city of Elsinore. 

Comwell Borupgaard. Snekkersten is situated just south of Elsinore. It is known as a very popular conference hotel, but also as a very good spa experience. 

Hornbæk and Kurbadet. Half an hour drive, west of Elsinore, you find one of the most famous and popular summer destinations of Denmark - Hornbæk. It is a charming, little, authentic town with a magnificent and famous beach. During summertime, the number of residents more than doubles, and the seafront is the place to be. You can either spend a day on the beach and visit Kurbadet or you can stay for a couple of days at Hornbækhus Hotel or Bretagne Hotel. Read more about Hornbæk.

NordicTreat. This is very special because this is a private home, which can be rented for retreats. The house and its surroundings are magnificent - nothing less. It is a huge garden with a tiny stream running through the backyard, where you also find a "vildmarksbad" - a huge barrel filled with hot water. It is an absolutely beautiful oasis and the owner helps with booking yoga teacher, lunch or whatever, you wish for.
