This Bohemian Hotel in Copenhagen Offers an Unexpected Jungle Retreat

Most Copenhagen hotels tap into the country’s celebrated Danish design, known all over the world for being simultaneously sleek and functional. But guests at Manon Les Suites are in for something a little different—and a touch more eccentric. At the center of the adults-only resort lies a Bali-inspired wonderland, the Instagram-worthy “Junglefish” pool, where you can sip a tropical smoothie or cocktail on a daybed surrounded by dangling plants, potted palm trees, and playful fish lights hanging from a five-story atrium.

If the scene gets too crowded, simply head to the rooftop terrace for a more traditionally Scandinavian (and quiet) experience. There you can take a steam bath with essential oils, relax in the sauna, and soak up the view over the Copenhagen Lakes. On a chilly Nordic day, it’s the perfect escape from the outside world.

As part of Guldsmeden, a Green Globe-certified hotel brand, Manon Les Suites emphasizes sustainability at every turn. Toiletries are by I Love Eco, Guldsmeden’s house line of eco-friendly products, and the restaurant is certified with the Golden Ø label for using 90-100% organic produce. For a small fee, guests can rent a bike from the front desk and take a spin around Copenhagen, one of the world’s most bicycle-friendly cities.
