With breathtaking panorama views, 22 hotel rooms, a locally curated menu and a spectacular spa, The Lodge resort is an experience for all the senses. And with its seasonal approach to everything from food to spa treatments, this is an ever-changing getaway for both weekend dwellers and daytime visitors.

A stone’s throw from Malmö and Lund in Sweden’s south, The Lodge Resort and Spa is perched on top of the picturesque Romeleåsen hillock. A secluded location with eye-pleasing surroundings and wildlife on its doorstep, the location was originally home to a small hunting lodge, the Romele hut, which drew visitors keen to explore nature.

Romeleåsen revived

The Lodge was founded by three friends and adventurers who travelled the world together via hot air balloon as part of the Volvo Ocean Race, including the North American east coast. This trip fuelled the inspiration to start their own venture back home on Romeleåsen, 167 metres above sea level.

In an otherwise flat landscape, this above-the-treetop spot provides miles of unbeatable views over the fields below, as well as glowing sunsets over the city of Lund. Built in New England style, The Lodge welcomed its first guests to Romeleåsen and its historic hunting grounds in 2006.

“We think it’s important to cherish the area’s history as part of what The Lodge stands for,” says Tove Gejde, hotel manager. “You can see this in the buildings themselves, but in our food offering too, like our delicious stick bread with sourdough and herbs. It’s an elevated take on a simple, coal-fired bread that many guests will recognise from their childhood outings. It’s become a defining dish for us, and you can see the excitement in people’s eyes when they spot it on the menu.”

Escape the everyday with a visit to The Lodge.

Stairway to Heaven

Aptly named Heaven, The Lodge’s on-site restaurant offers great food inspired by the surrounding area. Keep an eye out and you might even see one of the chefs foraging for ingredients in the nearby forest, such as spruce shoots and sorrel, then turning these into delicious broths and other delicacies to give diners a proper taste of the land.

Indeed, sourcing local ingredients and collaborating with local producers is key (look out over the fields below and you can see some of them). And so is maintaining a seasonal approach to the menu, always allowing nature to control the reins, while ensuring the highest quality.

New for this season (starting mid-July), The Lodge will also offer daily sittings for its Afternoon Tea Party. Open for bookings and drop-ins, this offering is perfect for guests who are stopping by for a quick visit and fancy relaxing on the porch with a glass of cold iced tea in hand.

Relax by the infinity pool with unbeatable views.

Aloha Honulele

The Lodge’s award-winning Honulele Spa is an oasis of calm and relaxation. Here, visitors can enjoy an outdoor infinity pool, 12 metres long and heated to 38 degrees. Plus, soak up the surrounding views before or after visiting the cold bath and sauna.

Ideal for day visitors, the Honulele Retreat Spa package includes a four-hour entry and Aloha Spa Ritual. This entails 90 minutes of pure restoration through seven different treatments, inspired by Polynesian knowledge and techniques. A dedicated host offers guidance throughout each treatment, and afterwards, all guests are welcomed into the VIP section to relax on comfortable daybeds while gazing out over the treetops through large, panorama windows.

As with The Lodge’s food offering, the Aloha Spa Ritual is directed by the seasons. For instance, springtime sessions focus on catering for dull winter skin with plenty of peels, while summer treatments revolve around boosting moisture and fresh-looking skin.

“Our spa is open to everyone, whether they’re visiting for the day or an entire weekend. We have a lot of returning guests who come to make the most of their days off, many of them from Copenhagen, which is only an hour away,” says Camilla Persson, sales, marketing & commercial manager.

A life less ordinary

There are also plenty of walking trails around, ideal to explore the rich flora and fauna of the nearby area. In fact, The Lodge sits on the Skåneleden trail, a 1,250 kilometre long walking trail in Skåne’s countryside. The trail markers literally run next to the hotel and into the wilderness, guiding walkers to beautiful forests, valleys, streams and viewpoints. Those who enjoy cycling are in for a treat too.

At The Lodge, every detail is carefully considered to give guests an overall experience they’ll want to come back to. “With everything we do, we ask ourselves ‘does this give our guests a life less ordinary?’ and if the answer is yes, we know we’re on the right track,” concludes Persson.
