If like me, you are always on the lookout for an exciting place to explore or somewhere new to escape the stresses and strains of everyday life, then the Trakt Forest Hotel is sure to inspire you.
Opening this July, and nestled in untouched Swedish woodland, the Trakt Forest Hotel aims to offer guests a unique experience that smells, tastes, and feels of Småland.
It’s the idea of Sandra and Mattias Sälleteg, and after five years of development, they have certainly taken their family farm to another level.
Mattias grew up at Sällegården where the Trakt Forest Hotel is located, and by combining generations of local knowledge with the skills and creative expertise of architect Gert Wingår, they can now offer their guests a unique place to stay.
The five suites, or as they call them ‘floating rooms’, are all made from sustainable natural materials and have been placed on pillars to make minimal impact on the surrounding landscape.
Inside, Scandinavian simplicity is combined with luxurious details, ensuring guests can totally relax on locally designed wooden furniture, light a fire in the fireplace and settle down on the sofa. As darkness descends, the bedrooms also have large skylights, so you can fall asleep under the stars from the comfort of your king size bed.
If that wasn’t enough, lucky guests also have the added bonus of the Trakt Kitchen: offering breakfast baskets and lunch packages delivered direct to your suite as well as three-course evening meals served in the main timber house. Here you’ll find home baked bread, fruit, berries and vegetables gathered from the Trakt Forest garden, as well as eggs and meat sourced from surrounding farms.
The Trakt Forest Hotel is certainly the perfect escape to experience Swedish nature and architecture side-by-side.
