“They sell three types of packages,” says Helledie. “Last year they had 1,800 guests, and they are looking to see that number double over the coming year. This is really excellent for us as it means we can expect to see an increase in visitor numbers.”
Tranquility and escapism Kurbadet Limfjorden offers single adhoc sessions as well as three different types of membership graded from bronze to platinum. Visitors range from couples of all ages and young as well as mature women, all keen to enjoy a treat and a bit of luxury, to buiness representatives and their clients. Each membership consists of 22 hours of free access to Kurbadet Limfjorden, a bathrobe, a pair of slippers and a towel, and a highergrade membership comes with wristbands that can be allocated to clients and business partners. Spa treatments include massages, aromatic baths, body peeling and Turkish-style hammam, and the beauty menu offers facial skin treatments, pedicure, and feet and leg treatments, all delivered in a tranquil and soothing ambiance. Sauna experiences are carefully adjusted at 90 degrees. “We offer
three different kinds of sauna,” explains Helledie. “They are all really popular and are great for muscles and joints.” Enhancing the sense of complete tranquility and escapism, highly attentive team members at Kurbad Limfjorden serve coffee, wine or Champagne to all visitors during or after treatments at regular intervals, so no one needs to lift a finger unnecessarily. The spa treatment department is run by five beauty therapists, and each treatment comes with a face mask consistent with the bath scent chosen by the vistor. All scents are exclusive and include chocolate, malt and salt. “Our Turkish hamman bath is large enough to accommodate two people and has therefore become popular with couples as well as girlfriends who want to share the experience,” says Helledie. Business is going well, and so far customer reviews are surpassing all expectations, but there is always room for improvement and growth. The resort also runs regular theme-based events on Mondays, open to a range of new and existing customer groups.
It is clear that art plays a key role at Kurbad Limfjorden, which also hosts photographic art by local highly acclaimed female photographer Kirsten Klein. Depicting the local surroundings, her subtle, haunting and dramatic style of photography is special to local residents and other Danes, and Kurbad Limfjorden is due to host a private view exhibiting some of the photographer’s finest works on 5 December this year. There would appear to be more than enough evidence to suggest that Kurbad Limfjorden is onto something very good and long lasting. Today’s world of work is becoming more complex as our workloads are increasing and constantly changing, adding more stress to daily lives, and Helledie believes that there will continue to be a great need for just getting away from it all every now and then. “We are all so busy during the week, and investing in a spa weekend stay can provide a perfect break from all that pressure,” he says.
