Sushi: Baltic style

Posted: Dec. 9th, 2005  |  By JustLuxe Team
When was the last time you ate a sushi roll and then took in a Russian bath? Or downed a vitamin cocktail and swam laps in a pool filled with Baltic sea water? It may not be a tropical paradise but this Eastern European destination is an increasingly popular hot-spot--attracting such dignitaries as Gustav V, King of Sweden. The main attraction here is the Baltic Beach Hotel, originally built in 1982 as Rigas Jurmala, a sanitarium for ministers of the U.S.S.R. Today the newly-renovated 165-room hotel has a sparkling new 14,500-square-foot wellness spa, salt-water pool, a five star restaurant, the Caviar Club, a sushi bar and a throwback to the 70's with a Soviet-style Retro Bar. In the spa guests get a new lease on life with traditional curative treatments, which treat everything from sleeping disorders to pesky cellulite. Laser, ultrasonic and ion therapies also are available. Nearby attractions include a café-lined boardwalk, Majori's Beach, and Riga, Latvia's capital, a short 30 minutes away.
