Kragerø Resort are situated in Stabbestad, Telemark. Overlooking Kragerø a beautiful coastal city. Golf, Spa and wellness are in focus at this Resort.
We (me and Grumpy) jumped at the idea of a spontanously weekend getaway. To seek up the summer and sun. But most of all to have a small summer getaway. The trip east to Kragerø takes us about 5-6 hours in car (from Stavanger) We made a couple of stops so Bruno the Chi could have some air and stretch his legs. Because YES dogs are welcomed at Kragerø Resort.
Initially we had booked a double room. But upon arrival and after seeing their rooms we upgraded to the Ocean View suite. And I would highly recommend you do it to, unless you are just staying the night and just need a bed to sleep in. We went from no view to the most amazing sea view. Looking straight down at Kragerø and out on many of the Islands on this coastal part of Norway. This way Bruno had access to the outside in a protective environment and we had spectacular sights and both sunsets and Sunrises.
In 2014 this resort got awarded the world gold award and I can understand why. Kragerø resort are located on top of a hill surrounded by nature and their golf course are beautiful made. Although not a popular place to go hiking, when the golfers are in their zone…. (note taken, stay clear of the golf course in the middle of the day!)
Included in the price are the entrance to the Resort´s spa. It opens from 0700 to 2200. We enjoyed both the outside pool, foot baths and saunas. Me personally I really enjoyed the Caldarium. Soothing and relaxing and just warm enough. And peaceful with the low music.
