How about staying at a hotel that promises the best sleep of your life, a true sleep spa?
This is exactly what brand new Hastens Sleep Spa in Coimbra, Portugal offers to its guests! Swedish luxury sleep brand Hästens, which comes with 168 years of experience in the sleep field, has just announced its first hospitality venture in partnership with Grupo O Valor do Tempo.
The beds at Hästens Sleep Spa
Hästens Sleep Spa features fifteen unique rooms with some of the world’s most impressive hand-made beds. Hästens beds are entirely produced by hand. The springs in the middle mattress are affixed one by one and react individually to pressure. The effect is outstanding: Two people together in the same bed lie in their own sphere, without the movements of one disturbing the other. In the base of the bed are two further spring systems. Carefully adapted to each other, they provide every part of the body with the support it needs. In addition, all beds at Hästens Sleep Spa have exclusively Hästens pillows, Hästens duvets, Hästens bed linen and Hästens bathrobe and slippers to improve the experience.
Most of the beds at Hästens Sleep Spa are bigger than king size to provide extra comfort and space to our guests. This is how guests are transported to a new level of both sleep and wakefulness.
The Bed Talks and the pillow menu
Another unique feature of the Hästens Sleep Spa is Bed Talks, which gives guests the chance to learn from sleep expert Dr. Edie Perry. Perry will offer a consultation to guests to discuss sleeping positions, sleeping tips as well as the correct bedding required for their upcoming stay. In addition, the sleep spa boasts an impressive pillow menu available to guests throughout their stay. With more or less volume, higher or lower density, more or less firmness, the concern is always to assure the utmost comfort for the guests, helping them to breathe better and ultimately leading to a better night’s rest.
Interiors inspired by literature
Hästens Sleep Spa is located directly next to the UNESCO-listed library Biblioteca Joanina, in Coimbra in the center of Portugal. With its thousands of books and gold-adorned baroque furnishings, it stands as the main inspiration for the hotel decoration. Each room of the hotel is adorned with 1,200 hand-carved and gold-plated marble book spines. The books – which took 4 months and 18 people to create – have been engraved with titles from both Portuguese and international authors. The lobby is an inspiring gallery area, breath-taking in its fine handiwork. Lined with 419,992 small mosaic tiles arranged geometrically across the floor and walls, extending up to the ceiling is a representation of the extraordinary bookshelves and ornaments serve as another tribute to the Joanine Library. Once inspired, the guests can choose any book represented on the room marble walls to read. The hotel has a particular library with every one of these books as a room service request exclusively available for guests. In addition to this inspiration, the hotel has a close partnership with Joanina Library and provides ultimate customized guided tours of the library itself!
