Yasuragi – A Japanese spa hotel in a Nordic setting

Only 20 minutes outside Stockholm, Sweden, you will find a place where Japanese culture has made an imprint in the Nordic mind. This is no ordinary spa hotel. The building was designed by renowned Japanese architect Yoji Kasajima in the 1970´s as a school for the Swedish Trade Union. Inspired by Kasajima´s aesthetics, over twenty years ago the decision was made to transform the school into a Japanese onsen. This proved to be a great success and Swedes rushed to experience ‘Yasuragi’, the name given to this new spa experience.

Owned and operated since 2006 by Nordic Choice Hotels, Yasuragi today has a strong position on the Nordic spa and conference scene.

The company invested a significant amount of capital in creating a whole new Japanese bathhouse. The new architecture is a modern, asymmetric version of a Japanese emperor’s courtyard, with a large pool at its architectural heart. Here you can bask in the warmth of the indoor and outdoor Japanese hot spring baths, pamper yourself with soothing spa treatments and enjoy relaxing activities.

In addition you will find a conference facility with twenty three meeting rooms, the largest of which can hold up to four hundred participants. Food plays an important part of every guests stay at Yasuragi and there are three different restaurants; vegan, à la carte and teppanyaki. Water and pine trees surround Yasuragi and guests can even enjoy a stroll around the Japanese garden.
