The so called “summer weather” in Norway the last week has been anything but nice and sunny. I’ve had to dig out my winter coat and wool socks. When The Thief (my favorite hotel in Oslo) invited me to come and relax at their Spa I didn’t hesitate for a second! I decided to combine the spa day with a overdue catch up with my friend Fransisco I hadn’t seen in forever (Note to self: forget about cafe’s, spa’s are the perfect place for catch ups).
The Thief Spa is small but still houses a generously proportioned sauna and an equally as spacious steam room, with scented mineral salt scrub on request. Their pool isn’t huge but still just enough. We weren’t looking to swim a distance (read: spa day!), however if you are it comes complete with resistance technology at the touch of a button.
It took us a minute to figure out their Sensor Sky Showers with their selection of programs which includes lights and scents. Once we figured it out we decided to give it two rounds, it steals you away and gives you a feeling of being in the middle of a rain forest. Quite the opposite from the cold rain showers we have in Oslo at the moment.
After a self-exfoliation session in the steam room we finished up with a shower before delicious fresh fruit on some of the modern loungers by the poolside.
The Spa also has a great selection of beauty products from brands like Natura Bissé, Babor, Carita, Keune and Decleor, their super friendly staff was there the whole time to answer questions and make our little spa retreat even more special. It was just amazing from the beginning till the end and we walked out the door with a pure feeling of well-being.
