The hotel was opened in 1970 after a major investment by Arne Sandberg, the owner of the popular gas station chain UnoX. Already since inception, the vision of the founders was to create a place with a deep focus on taking care of the body with a 360-degree spectrum. This vision led to paying lot of attention on sports and to building, at the time, one of Sweden’s biggest spas, with a 32-degree warm pool, saunas and several different treatments, so that guests could enjoy taking care of themselves and relief from stress. The idea was to inspire health, relaxation and entertainment, all at the same place.
