Spa spotlight: Upper House Spa, Gothia Towers

Located in central Gothenberg, Sweden, is Gothia Towers, a stunning three-tower property with 41,000 square metres of experience areas, 1200 first-class hotel rooms and suites, and five popular bars and restaurants.

Close to the city centre and right next to Scandinavia’s biggest amusement park Liseberg, Gothia Towers is a part of the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre Group.

Upper House, a hotel within the hotel, is a small five-star property located in the top floors of Tower 2, with a spectacular view of Gothenburg. The hotel has 53 spacious rooms and suites and the Upper House Spa has a gym, a hamam, a protruding champagne pool on the 19th floor, a jet stream pool, a soft pool, a jungle shower, and much more.

 

“Our vision is to become ‘the global meeting point’ and to deliver world-class experiences,” says Spa Director Lisette Norberg.

“The Nordic meets the Oriental is a recurring theme for us. The contrast between the light and pure and the rich and exotic are reflected in both our spa area and our spa products.”

 

“Our hamam treatment is wonderful. People love it,” says Norberg.

The treatment traditionally takes place on a warm granite slab, ideally beginning in one of the two steam saunas, with scents of the Orient. Genuine Turkish soap is “whipped” into a lather using a Turkish date brush. After a full-body scrub with a kese mitt you are covered with the prepared lather. The therapist then brushes your whole body with the lather and date brush. Heavenly cleansing for the skin.

 

Gothia Towers culinary offerings include everything from the Michelin Star Restaurant in the Upper House to grab & go, to Swedish and Italian cuisine, and the international kitchen.

 

 

Gothia Towers’ locally-produced product line “UH by Upper House” contains natural ingredients like honey, lemon grass and seaweed.
