If you are visiting Båstad, there’s no reason to miss our bespoked cold bath house. It’s just that simple. Nowhere else will give you the unique feeling of the ocean, sky and horizon all meeting in the same place. A sense of complete freedom.
Take a stroll along our 60-meter long wooden bridge, and walk across the sandy beach and the water. On the other side, you can enjoy our warm sauna and a splendid scenic view of the Kattegatt. Get ready for a cold dip in the ocean and then — just do it. Those who know the joys of the cold bath house will be the first to tell you that the colder it is, the better it is. Today there is even research that suggests that cold bathing can make you calm, alert, and happy for the rest of the day.
about the cold bath house
About our cold bath house
In the late 1800s, Båstad made bathing history by building a cold bath house. The original bath house has long been destroyed, but in 2009 we opened a new one, erecting it in the same place as the original in a fitting tribute.
The interior bears the signature Nordic lighting design with its huge panoramic windows that face the sea. In the lounge you can sit in welcoming and comfortable chairs, reclining by the fire and looking out over the Kattegatt. Whether you warm up in the sauna, relax out on the terrace, or take a hot bath in the open air, you’re sure to enjoy yourself. And it’s an easy trip down to the beach for a quick dip in the ocean. On our wooden deck you can sit and chat with friends, surrounded on all sides by the brilliant and beautiful sea.
The cold bath house is open to everyone all year long. Whether you are staying at the hotel or just visiting for a while, you are welcome to stop by. Opening hours and prices can be found below.
