Copenhagen gives you a glimpse into a better world, one where the whir of bicycle wheels replace honking horns and where the idea of living consciously is so collectively accepted it’s become conventional. It’s a city that gives you hope for the future metropolises of the world, with its cutting-edge eco architecture, endless cycle routes and green spaces galore. A place where people seem to put kindness first and stress last, creating that brilliant balance we as North Americans still search for ... it’s no wonder the Danes are rumoured to be amongst the happiest in the world.

This small string of family-owned eco-friendly hotels share a dreamy aesthetic which creatively and playfully combines Balinese and Scandinavian design to create something luxurious yet down to earth, each detail thoughtfully and consciously put together for your comfort and enjoyment while simultaneously protecting the planet. At Manon Les Suits, the rooftop restaurant offers delicious vegan options along with a wide variety of organic beers and cocktails with outdoor and indoor seating bringing ‘hygge’ to a whole new level. Across from the restaurant is a spa partitioned away to create an intimate space with an outdoor shower, steam room and sauna for you to relax in and enjoy. The pool area, set in the centre of the hotel feels like a terrarium from another world, with a plethora of plants cascading down from the balconies which line each floor, swaddling you on a sanctuary of serenity which will make you forget the outside world.

You'll leave wishing there were more places like this, rural living with immediate access to city life, the best of both worlds as it acts as both home and away.
