Where the west coast archipelago meets Gothenburg, we let nature take centre stage

The “Garden” in Art Garden Spa refers to nature, the landscape around us and how we involve the organic and plant-based in everything we do and physically in our hotel. The interior is incorporated into the sweeping landscape with several, detached saunas near the spa and just a stone's throw away, you will find a well-equipped outdoor gym. Coupled with delicious food, great service and attention to detail, we are proud to present this tranquil haven.

Outdoor pool

Art Garden Spa is a little world of its own. Start your journey with a Japanese ablution ritual.

Welcome to our restaurant

In order to give you genuine taste sensations, we choose to only use natural ingredients from hand-picked producers in our area. Our aim is to use the cream of the crop, the very best of each season and we are equally conscious of the environmental aspect.

Galleri Arken

Art is important to us. So important in fact, that we have established our very own, well-frequented art gallery, Galleri Arken. In the light and airy hotel lobby, you will be met by interesting exhibitions by not only established names in the art world, but also unexplored, lesser-known artists. Art is all around you and ever-present whenever you visit us.

One of the largest conference and fair facilities in southern Sweden

The short car journey of just 15 minutes from central Gothenburg is an attractive feature for all sorts of meetings and our seaside location gives the hotel a beautiful, re-energising framing. We have 28 conference rooms with capacity and flexibility for up to 1,000 attendees, not to mention our own auditorium, large ballroom and exhibition hall.
