The location and proud spa heritage are still the same, but much has happened at the hotel formerly known as Varbergs Kurort. It has been renovated, featuring a new thalasso spa and restaurant with a bistro – the name recently changed to Varbergs Kusthotell. “We changed it to strengthen our message of being a hotel located by the sea. But we also wanted to show that we are something new,” says Terese Asplund, CEO at Varbergs Kusthotell. “We have kept the feeling of the traditional health resort that we are and instead of creating a whole new style, we have modernised it.”
