Copenhagen may be one of Europe’s most stress-free capitals, but even here there are moments when a little extra pampering is called for. Take time out at one of the city’s best spa and wellness hotels and you can relax around a rooftop pool, sweat it out in the sauna or treat yourself to a rejuvenating facial or a refreshing ocean plunge.

Nimb Hotel

Nimb’s small but stylish wellness area has a Moroccan-style hammam, relaxation lounge, fitness room, and a spa menu boasting Japanese Lifting treatments, where East Asian and South American techniques are combined to deliver a natural facelift. Up on the rooftop, you’ll also find something no other Copenhagen hotel can offer – an emerald-green outdoor pool with a fabulous view over Tivoli gardens.

The grande dame of Copenhagen hotels is home to the chic, serene Amazing Space spa, where you can take a dip in the large indoor pool or enjoy some serious pampering from a menu of facials, massages and other treatments. For a full-on Scandi experience, try Nordic Space, a two-hour face and body treatment incorporating seaweed, sea buckthorn and a massage with heated lava stones from Icelandic volcanoes.

Hotel Kong Arthur

There’s a Pan-Asian feel to Kong Arthur’s Ni’mat Spa, adorned as it is with Buddha statues and bonsai trees, painted Thai temple dancers and oriental rugs on wooden floors. At the heart of the spa is the Water Temple, with a sauna, aroma steam bath and large hot tub. Therapies on offer include a bamboo massage, using warmed canes to knead away aches and pains.

Hotel Ottilia

Beneath the characterful Hotel Ottilia (converted from two old Carlsberg brewery buildings) is the equally characterful Aire Ancient Baths, independently run but with direct access from the hotel. In this atmospheric space, all bare brick walls and flickering candles, you can work your way around a series of thermal pools and sample signature experiences that include a cranial-facial massage while immersed in a bath of wine.

Villa Copenhagen Hotel

One of Copenhagen’s newest hotels, opened in July 2020, Villa Copenhagen champions the concept of ‘conscious luxury’ – delivering a five-star experience while being mindful of the environmental impact. On the fitness front, you can work out in the gym, relax in the sauna and take a dip in the rooftop pool, secure in the knowledge that it’s sustainably warmed, using excess heat from the hotel cooling system.

Nobis Hotel

Cool design is a given here – and that includes the basement spa room. You couldn’t call it huge but it’s a handsome marble-clad space with a sauna, hot stone bed and cold-water plunge pool. It’s only open to hotel guests, so there’s every chance you’ll get it to yourself. For something more active, there’s also a small fitness room, and reception can suggest good local running routes.

    Kurhotel Skodsborg Denmark

    It’s a short train hop from central Copenhagen to Skodsborg and one of Denmark’s finest spa hotels. Inside the simple white buildings, all is plush and pampering, from the glamorous lounge and bar to the lavish spa, where assorted thermal experiences surround a large central pool. The treatment to go for, if you dare, is the sauna gus – an intense, aromatic sauna session followed by a bracing leap into the nearby sea.
