Hankø’s history

Hankø Bad og Kystsanatorium, todays Hankø Hotell & Spa was opened in 1877. The main building was described to have a large dining room, giving it an aristocratic impression. On the ground floor was a large hall with a piano forte and on the first floor a pool room, veranda and 6 guest rooms. The bath houses were situated in a bay seperat from the main entrance.

The first 25 years the bath had 10 000 guests, mostly from Norway, but also from other European countries as well as Russa and America. By the end of the century the bath/hotel expanded and could now accomedate 250 guests. Royalties visited already in 1878 and today the Norwegian Royal Family are frequent guests on the island.

In 2002 the hotel opened their large spa department with a large panel of spa retreats. Conferencing and theme weekends are popular among our guests. Our christmas parties are well known far beyond the Norwegian borders.
