Historic 1896 Swiss chalet-style hotel owned by the same family for four generations on the shore of Bjørnefjord, less than 20 miles from downtown Bergen. The 135 airy guest accommodations primarily employ oak, birch and soapstone and feature high ceilings, original art and private balconies or garden patios. Be sure to request a fjord-facing room. Gourmet seafood-oriented restaurant serves a nightly changing three-course menu of Western Norwegian specialties. Other amenities include a beach with a bathing pier (open year-round), 30 acres of manicured gardens and a wellness area comprising heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a fitness center, hot therapy pools and a Finnish sauna. Yoga sessions, boating excursions and kayaking tours can be arranged.
