The most popular is Yasuragi Hasseludden, which is a pleasant boat ride or a not so inspiring bus ride away on Värmdö. It is a large Japanese inspired complex that used to be a conference center for a Social democratic union. The rooms are very spartan, but the Japanese restaurant and the baths are top notch. Even in the winter it's pleasant to sit outside in the warm springs and look out over the tree tops and the inlet to Stockholm.
If you don't have the time, Grand Hôtels spa is one of the most luxurious in the city.
Two classics are Centralbadet and Sturebadet. The first one is very popular for after work, and has a bar, but it seldom gets too noisy. The second one is a more relaxed.
Sparadiset is another alternative for anyone who want nice treatments in a slightly kitschy surrounding.
One of the city's best SPA’s is the Grand Hotel's ”Raison d'Etre”. Just like the Grand Hotel, Raison d'Etre is luxury defined, while it still feels cozy. The SPA uses Jurilique products. At Raison d'Etre you want to spend more than an hour… More like a whole week if you ask me!
Sturebadet at Stureplan is also known for its fantastic SPA. Sturebadet has a great gym, indoor pool, and a large variety of SPA treatments. Sturebadet's location makes it very popular and a reservation is needed make sure to be there in time. If you would like to work out at the gym while in town, it is possible to rent workout clothes. Sturebadet uses their own brand; Kerstin Florian.
The Thai-inspired Sabai SPA at Linnégatan is a more affordable alternative. Just like in Thailand you will get your massage on a mattress on the floor. Totally worth it for the nice price.
Newly opened Day Spa at Sibyllegatan is a delightful novelty which unlike many other places in Stockholm offers you the possibility to just pop in for a treatment. At ”Day SPA” you pay for the time you use and not per treatment. They have great manicures and pedicures!
QVISI at Valhallavägen makes you feel like home. They offer you a huge variety of treatments and products. QVISI carries the popular brand ”Dr. Obagi”. At QVISI you get spoiled rotten. Expect to walk away with a fantastic result!
