The Arken Hotel & Art Garden Spa in Gothenburg works with the five Chinese elements: plenty of space, comfortable day beds, dark therapy rooms, hot springs and classes along the lines of yoga and meditation. This Swedish spa hotel combining art and wellness in Gothenburg is well worth a visit.
The Arken Hotel & Art Garden Spa is located right on the edge of the rocks by Gothenburg Harbor and is a unique spa hotel with amazing conference facilities, where nature and art are ever-present.
It’s only a 5-minute drive of Volvo Museum and Volvo Cars Torslanda Factory and 11.3 mi (18.1 km) from Liseberg Amusement Park and 7.2 mi (11.6 km) from Gothenburg University.
Changing seasons – changing elements
With the changing of the seasons, the elements change at the spa and the treatments and produce are adapted accordingly, so take time to pamper yourself with a visit to the full-service spa. You’re sure to appreciate the recreational amenities, including a fitness center and bicycles to rent.
Satisfy your appetite for lunch, dinner, or brunch at Main restaurant, a restaurant which specializes in international cuisine, or stay in and take advantage of the room service (during limited hours).

The concept of relaxation
The concept of relaxation and well-being tends itself to an appreciation of all things beautiful, which is why there is an art exhibition by local artists at Arken hotel at all times, changing five times per year alongside the changing elements. In addition, the spa has its own mini exhibition, and the entire venue is full of sculptures and installations.
Arken hotel is a place to meet where you can literally feel your stress levels dropping and your well-being and creativity increase. In spite of being a city hotel, located only 12 kilometers or 15 minutes away from Gothenburg’s city center, this oasis offers the views and fresh air of a seaside location as well as healthy organic food.
