Hotel in SKODJE - NO
Spellbinding scenery circles this hilltop hideaway in Norway. Glimpse Storfjord Hotel for the first time and you could be forgiven for thinking you have stumbled into a scene from a storybook. This forest retreat- handcrafted from Norwegian wood- is between fjords and Alpine peaks. Yet it puts a designer spin on the traditional log cabin look. Raw timber meets sleek grey tones- fur throws drape across magazine-worthy sofas and a sense of Scandi-chic hangs over it all. The exclusive bedrooms continue the theme. Think light- bare wood walls- elegant furnishings and snug lounges- with private balconies and windows framing forest or fjord panoramas. Nespresso machines and spa-worthy bathrooms make them the ultimate 21st-century boltholes. These bedrooms- and the views you wake up to- mean you could easily spend all your time indoors. But Storfjord Hotel is ready if adventure calls. For a close encounter with the fjords- go kayaking- sailing or fishing - with seals and puffins for company. Hike - or even helicopter - to the UNESCO-listed wonders at Geirangerfjord and Hjorundfjord. Or leave the hard work to your credit card and browse the high-end boutiques at Devold Factory. However you spend your days- indoors or outside- the restaurant at Storfjord Hotel will have candles lit and creative cuisine waiting for you. Each night- the kitchen team cooks up a tempting quartet of courses- all made from fine local produce. Just leave room for the signature cheeseboard and a glass of Alpine ale- Storfjordbrygg brewed and only available at the hotel. Storfjord Hotel is a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property.
