Første natt borte fra babyen på Son Spa / First night away from the baby at Son Spa

Kjæresten min tok meg med til Son Spa på bursdagen min. Vi var på åpningen av hotellet før jul, og har hatt lyst til å dra dit siden. :) Dette var første natt borte fra datteren vår (som nå er 10 (!) måneder. Hotellet har et avslappende og skandinavisk interiør med noe New England / Slettvoll ispedd.


Mr B took me to Son Spa for my 29th birthday. This is the first night we've spent away from our ten month (!) old daughter. We were at the opening party of this hotel before Christmas (regrettably, I didn't bring my camera that time, so I made sure to take lots of pics this time) We've been planning to come back, the opening party was a success.

Her er resepsjonen. Enkelt design med et digitalt akvarum hvor fiskene svømmer fra TV-skjerm til TV-skjerm. Fiffig.

The reception area. Minimalist design with a digital aquarium with fishes swimming from TV screen to TV screen.



Dette er rommet vårt. Rommene har to forskjellige design, spa eller maritimt. Vi bodde på et sparom. Jeg synes lampene på nattbordene er fine og fargepalettet er fint og avslappende. På bildet til høyre var de

Our room. The rooms have two different designs, spa or marine. We have a spa room. I like the lamps on the night stands and the color palette is nice and soothing. On the right hand side there's a reading nook maybe? Or just somewhere to relax. It's kinda cute, but the artwork could be better.


Badet er enkelt med et nøytralt fargepalett. Kranene og dusjhodet var billige, hadde forventet bedre på et spahotell.

The bathroom is simple with a neutral color palette. The fixtures / taps were cheap and I expected more from a Spa Hotel.


Jeg liker sømmen på gardinene. "Klokken" på bildet til høyre er faktisk romnøkkelen som er vantett og kan brukes i bassenget. Perfekt for et spahotell!


I liked how the curtains were pleated. The "watch" on the right is actually the room key which was kinda cool AND waterproof. Perfect for a Spa hotel.


Utsikten fra rommet var nydelig. Kanskje enda nydeligere når det er fullt av båter om sommeren :)

The view from the room is beautiful.

Dette er spa-resepsjonen. Digger det. Gyngestolene er fantastiske, dagsengen i bakgrunnen og belysningen. Bak til høyre finner du et kjøkken for kurs du kan ta mens du bor på hotellet :)


The reception area for the Spa. Love it. The rocking chairs were fantastic, the daybed in the background and the lighting. Behind the reception is a kitchen were you can take cooking classes while staying at the hotel.


Resepsjonsområdene / loungen byr på det beste interiøret på hotellet. Avslappet, chic og et nøytralt fargepalett med litt oppfriskende innslag av rødt.

The reception areas and the lounge has the best decor in the Hotel. Relaxed, chic and with a neutral color palette with refreshing dashes of red.


Dette lille området er også flott. De kinesiske hagestolene og de lakkerte trekubbene gir et spennende uttrykk.

This little area is also very nice. The chinese stools and the lacquered wood stools look really great.



Jeg ELSKER lampen med tre føtter. Det er to stykker, og de er virkelig en fantastisk del av interiøret.



I LOVE the lamp in these pictures. There's two of them at the hotel, and they're such an amazing part of the interior.




Dette er loungeområdet foran resepsjonen.

The lounge area in front of the main reception.


Jeg hadde ikke lyst til å ta med meg kameraet til spa avdelingen, så disse bildene kommer fra Son Spa sine hjemmesider. Det grønne rommet er helt fantastisk, mens "isbøtta" til høyre var mildt sagt forfriskende (eller forskrekkende?) Mr B utfordret meg til å prøve, så da hadde jeg ikke noe valg, hehe ;)

I didn't want to bring my camera to the spa area so these pictures are from the hotel site. The green room on the bottom left is just beautiful and the "bucket of ice" that you see on the right hand side was refreshing (to put it mildly). Mr B challenged me to try it, so how could I not do it?


Alt i alt kan jeg si at vi hadde en veldig fin overnatting. Spa-avdelingen er nok det som imponerte mest. Restauranten var både og. Vi bestilte lammefrikkase til hovedrett og der var alt perfekt, bortsett fra sausen som smakte buljong. De andre rettene og frokosten dagen etter var heldigvis nydelige. Frokostbuffeten hadde en økologisk profil, som jeg synes er positivt. Skal ikke se bort ifra at vi kommer tilbake hit ;) Og vår lille snuppelure oppførte seg eksemplarisk med farmor og farfar som var barnevakt.

All in all we had a great experience. The spa department impressed the most (thank god). The restaurant had a poorly made sauce for the main course, but the rest of what we ate was excellent. The breakfast buffet had an ecological profile, which is great. We will probably return to this spa hotel :) Our little sunshine behaved like a star with her grandparents as well, so things couldn't have gone any better :)

Happy birthday for yesterday! Your birthday falls on Australia Day so if you lived here you would always have a public holiday on your birthday!
Looks like you had a fabulous time away at the hotel. I love those tripod style lamps in the lobby. It's always a little hard being away from your baby for the first time, but healthy too to rediscover yourself!

For ett vakkert hotell. Ening med deg om de billige kranene kunne hatt en philippe Starck eller Arne Jackobsen når de har Eames R stoler på rommet.

Dere koset dere skjønner jeg.

ha en herlig uke.

Kos med babye masse .

LOVE your blog!! I'm so glad you commented on mine, so I could come check yours out! I will definitely be back. You have so many gorgeous images, and a lot of great information too!

I studied Norwegian in college (even studied abroad at the University in Oslo) so I'm excited to come back just to practice reading! :)

Happy Birthday!!

Catherine - you're totally right, it really is healthy to be away from the baby from time to time, we're definitly doing it again!

Drops - spaet anbefales, spaavdelingen var bare helt nydelig :) De har noe som heter "spa deg selv" hvor du kan gi deg selv en spabehandling :)

Helene - hallois! vi hadde det virkelig helt supert! Sees i morgen! :)

Irina, ja, jeg stusset over det samme. Er helt for å blande billig og dyrt, men billige kraner er bare så utrolig synlig.

Michelle - thanks for commenting, you're blog is fantastic!

Erin - Well, you love yours too! (turquoise / teal / duck egg blue / aqua is such an important part of the interior of our home) How funny that you've studied Norwegian? :)

Erin said...

Nei, men min beste-besteforeldre (great-grandparents?) kom fra Norge. Min bestemor snakket litt norsk, men hun døde før jeg besøkte Norge.

HA! It's been 6 years since I've spoken Norwegian! I lived in Germany last year, so it did help me learn that language. But now I get it all confused! :)
