Tallinn is a lively yet peaceful capital city, where medieval streetscapes melt into modern culture. When you’re done hotfooting it around the Old Town, gawping at the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral or sampling Estonian cuisine, you can recharge your batteries at a wellness centre. Whether you’re after a relaxing massage, personal training session, healthy food or a private sauna, there’s a spa hotel to suit you in Tallinn.

1. Schlössle Hotel

Dating back 500 years, this five-star hotel in the Old Town has 23 boutique rooms, an atmospheric restaurant and a private sauna. There’s a classic feel to the accommodation, with exposed stone walls, original wooden beams and deluxe furniture. Tuck into Estonian eel with foie gras or raspberry cheesecake beside the log fire in the candlelit restaurant. You can book a wide variety of treatments and massages through reception.

Swim lengths in the pool or head to the Sauna Oasis – a collection of hot tubs, saunas and steam rooms with a Japanese-style bath. Personal trainers are available, and even the restaurant has a healthy slant, with options such as tuna tataki with kale.

Rooms are spacious and feature whitewashed walls and pops of colour from yellow throws and striped curtains.

With an unbeatable location close to the medieval square, this luxury hotel oozes elegance and charm – with spa facilities to boot. Step inside and look out for nods to the building’s past – it was previously a bank, then a post office – though the 83 rooms and suites have a contemporary feel with neutral colour schemes, king-size beds and spotless bathrooms. The Elemis Spa has an indoor pool, whirlpool bath, sauna and steam bath.

5. Tallink Spa and Conference Hotel
