Once upon a time, you believed in fairy tales. You will again on a visit to Dorsia, your palace away from home. Classic art and antiques, procured by owners of generations past, bring storybook tales back to life. Your room becomes your own personal kingdom, with a splash of the fantastic featuring Sleeping Beauty-esque Carpe Diem beds and whimsical furniture. Rich and cheerful colours exude a joie de vivre, helping guests slip out of the cares of the every day into a world of imagination. Seeing is believing.
The setting of Gothenburg, the fifth largest city in Sweden, could be the backdrop for a modern-day fairytale with canals, tree-lined boulevards, cafes, boutiques and Liseberg, a popular amusement park with themed rides. Walk to many of the city’s famous sites like Trädgårdsföreningen Park and Garden, The Old Post House, Opera House, and Museum of Art.
At the end of a day of touring, return to your palace where wine connoisseurs readily obey your command, recommending and retrieving new favourites and old from their vast wine cellar. As-you-wish haute cuisine prepared with time honoured service readily casts its spell on the evening. The only magic needed is you.
