The U.S. magazine Departures has just released its list of the 100 most exquisite and attractive places and cultural gems in the world. Ilse Jacobsen health spa, Kurbadet by Ilse Jacobsen, here in Hornbæk is #9 on the list! You will find it side by side with, among others the Henri Matisse exhibition ‘ The Cut Outs ‘ at the Tate Modern in London.

Departures is a luxury travel magazine who writes about travel, fashion , shopping and arts & culture – everything you for a luxurious lifestyle . See the Departure-website further down the page .

Congratulations to Ilse Jacobsen, who has invested heavily in opening a world class spa experience and is now being recognized for it. It’s good for Ilse , and it’s good for Hornbæk.

I went down to the spa to swim around in the heated pools during the holiday between christmas and the new year. The luxury experience starts at the front desk , where you get a beach bag with towel , bathrobe and flip-flops . In the dressing room are enclosed showers. You walk around in the sumptuous surroundings where art and flowers make the spa more than an ordinary spa. And on a winter cold day it is a wonderful experience to move into the warm water , especially if you do it after dark , when the hot water steams magically over the illuminated spa in the glow of candlelight and the outdoor fireplace. It is a place, you do not want to get out of.

I have yet to try the restaurant and the treatments. But I ‘ll be here !

For Ilse , being in the attractive Top 10 of Departures Top 100 is a direct extension of her vision that all the spa’s guests , both national and international , are to experience Kurbadet as the perfect place for total relaxation , excellent self – pampering and luxurious beauty and wellness treatments.

– We are really proud and honored to ranked to highly in such a fine company. It is essential for us to deliver a luxury spa experience for body and soul and mind every time, and that we have been selected as one of the best places in the world tells us that we are on the right track , says Ilse Jacobsen.
