|The outdoor bubble pool, overlooking the city of Gothenburg. Here you can actually see the traffic under you, while sitting in the pool (and the bubbles are not on:)|
|I especially liked the broad bench to lie on in this hot pool...|

|Great design details, for e.g hanging up your robe while taking a dip|

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting the Upper House SPA in Gothenburg, while I was there on business. This was the absolute perfect relaxation after a long day filled with meetings. I had a few hours of alone time, just absorbing the ambience and tranquility of this great SPA. The best part of Upper House SPA are the many different pools, at least for a bather like me. When you enter the SPA area of the hotel you are warmly greeted and encouraged to pick out a theme for your SPA experience. You can go either Oriental or Swedish West Coast. I had a huge problem choosing, of course, but landed in the West Coast for me after a few professional advices. You then get products according to your chosen theme to bring into the SPA. Brilliant, who doesn't love a DIY SPA? You choose how to spend your time and when to use the products, but if you prefer guidance there are instructions how-to, when and where in the SPA. I went on an early Friday evening, which normally sees many visitors, but on my occasion it was very calm, I guess I was lucky and it was just what I needed. If you´re in Gothenburg and just need a couple of hours of relaxation, head to the Upper House SPA and you will feel renewed in senses and very clean afterwards. I also stayed for a glass of wine in the relaxing area of the SPA, flickering through a huge pile of magazines overlooking the city of Gothenburg and watching the evening come.
