Come enjoy an unforgettable spa experience!

Taru Kauppinen, interior designers from dSign Vertti Kivi & Co and Viking Line’s own architect Johan Nordberg have all collaborated in order to create the framework for M/S Viking Grace’s wonderful Spa & Wellness center. Their work has allowed us to fine-tune the functional details.

We needed to address details such as first impressions and the general atmosphere of the spa area. We chose to partner up with Italian firm ‘Comfort Zone’. After integrating our combined philosophies, the to-do list became long. The seemingly simple matter of choosing towels turned out to be quite complicated. There are a great many styles and color palettes for towels and this made finding the perfect combination hard. The exact outcome will be revealed when you come to visit, but here are two clues: earth tones and organic materials. We can, however reveal that we have selected classic white bathrobes of the softest kind. These will be available to all spa guests, both young and old. Swimwear can be brought, bought or rented.

We aim to offer everyone the chance to pamper themselves at our facilities. To cater for such needs, we will be offering professional childcare at certain times during the day. That way, parents can enjoy relaxing spa treatments in the luxury of each other’s company. There is a special room for couples’ treatments. For those that wish to truly indulge themselves we have a VIP-lounge with a sauna and a hot tub.

Our Spa & Wellness center won’t just feature your traditional sauna; it will provide an all-rounded, perfect source of relaxation. A vital component of this is our experienced staff offering luxurious treatments in a truly wonderful atmosphere. In addition to different kinds of saunas we also have a magnificent ice cave and the opportunity to relax in our hot tubs while gazing out at the sea.

We will be taking special care of our guests’ needs from start to finish. Since I’m a professional beautician myself, the Spa & Wellness area is of personal significance to me. The project as a whole is close to my heart. At times, I will be treating guests myself. I place the utmost value in high quality products, and high quality treatments. Only the best is good enough for our guests.

The Spa & Wellness bar will offer an array of drinks and snacks. We will also be making a personal favorite of mine – wellness smoothies with only the freshest ingredients!

I’ve taken many wishes and expectations under consideration in order to incorporate as many ideas as possible into the Spa & Wellness center, but I’d still appreciate your help. What are your expectations when it comes to that perfect spa experience? Is there anything particular we should be bearing in mind? Would background music help enhance the mood? We wish we could cater to all your wishes straight away, but we will make sure to keep all of them in mind.

Come meet us at the Spa & Wellness Centre on board M/S Viking Grace!
