Iserlohn.

The Varbergs Kusthotell on the Swedish coast is considered one of the most exclusive spas in Europe. Reopened in spring of this year after a redesign, the resort is now home to Sweden’s first and only thalassotherapy spa. In addition to a saltwater swimming pool, at Varbergs Kusthotell guests can enjoy innovative applications and unique water experiences – thanks partly to Dornbracht’s shower applications Sensory Sky, Horizontal Shower, and Vertical Shower, which are an integral part of the new spa concept. 

With its superb location right on the coast, Varbergs Kusthotell has been attracting those seeking rest and recovery for two centuries. The proximity to sea and nature make it a good place to unwind. At the centre of the exclusive hotel’s wellness area is the new indoor thalassotherapy pool. Filled with seawater from the coast, it combines the soothing warmth of a hot tub with the benefits of traditional thalassotherapy.


Just like under the open sky: Dornbracht Sensory Sky

In keeping with the close-to-nature concept, Dornbracht’s Sensory Sky shower application blends seamlessly into the new spa interior. Inspired by weather phenomena and moods in nature, different types of rain, mist, light, and scents combine to create unique water experiences. With a large rain panel, separate nozzle arrays for head spray, body spray, and rain curtain, a cold-water mist nozzle, light functions, and scent functions, Sensory Sky generates a feeling of being under the open sky. Various pre-programmed scenarios are available with a balancing, invigorating, or relaxing effect.


Horizontal Shower: Deep relaxation at Varbergs Kusthotell

Dornbracht’s Horizontal Shower also fulfills the desire for a natural water experience – and is also part of the exclusive spa offering at the Varbergs Kusthotell, where six WaterBars are embedded in a large shower field over a heated surface. Lying on their stomachs or backs, guests can enjoy perfectly coordinated choreographies of water temperature and flow in complete relaxation. The Balancing scenario, for example, envelopes the body and soul with a soothing hydro massage.


Shower with an ocean view: Vertical Shower

In addition to a stunning open-air pool, the outdoor area of the Varbergs Kusthotell also features Dornbracht’s Vertical Shower. This shower application combines special outlet points with various different spray patterns: Just Rain envelopes the body with large, pearly drops, while a clear, broad stream of water falls from the Water Sheet onto the shoulders, relaxing the muscles. At the same time, the back is stimulated by two Water Bars. As with the Horizontal Shower and Sensory Sky, one can choose from different choreographies - Balancing, Energizing, and De-Stressing - for the perfect water experience.
