About Hotel Føroyar

The hotel is located in the middle of the capital city Tórshavn, above all the buildings that surround the city, which as you can imagine has the best view of the city Tórshavn.

The purpose of the hotel is to let you take in the surrounding nature. As you enter Hotel Føroyar, the journey to the view begins. This first part of the journey is the build up. Dark corridors like inside a puffin cave, with some hints to what is to come. Finally, you enter your room, open the curtains. There it is.


Our experience at the hotel

We arrived at the hotel in the evening and the first thing that we did was to get the key to our room and went into our room. The room that we had was in the new part of the hotel which is located close to the Ress Spa center. The room was spacious and ready for us to use.

In the morning we went upstairs to eat breakfast. There was English breakfast, fresh bread rolls, yoghurt, fresh fruit etc. We really enjoyed our breakfast while enjoying the view of Tórshavn and the sunrise.

After breakfast it was time for some me time. I went to try out the Ress Spa. I tried out the Rasul is an ancient bathing ritual. The treatment takes place in a steam room and combines the health enhancing properties of heat, steam and mineral rich mud. You are given a bowl of Moroccan mud to apply to your face and body which detoxes, nourishes and leaves the skin feeling silky smooth. I was in the steam room for about 20 minutes. You will also get a bottle of water with you so you can drink while you are there.

Once the time is up, a shower turns on automatically and you can clean yourself from the mud. They invited me to go in a relaxing room where calm music was playing and after a while the lady that works there came with some fruits, nuts and tea. I think I was in this room for about 30 minutes or so. Afterwards, I just went to my room and took a shower.

In the evening my kids and I went out to shoot some fireworks just like we normally do at New Years Eve. At 11:30pm we headed back to the hotel to prepare for the big event. The hotel staff and the guests gather together upstairs, the same place where they serve breakfast in the morning. The staff gave us champagne and marzipan cake to celebrate the new year together with them. We all went out on the grass roof top of the hotel and watched the fireworks over the capital city Tórshavn.

The next day (first day of the year) we went up around 10am, ate breakfast and after that we prepared everything to go home. We were very satisfied with the service and the lovely staff.
