Salt & Sill
In October 2008, Sweden’s first floating hotel opened alongside the famous restaurant "Salt & Sill". The hotel is a meeting and conference venue with 46 beds, and will be open all year round. At the hotel, guests can work and socialise in an inspiring environment, enjoy good food and drink, and then fall asleep to the sound of lapping waves. Salt & Sill is a hotel and meeting place with a cosy, personal atmosphere, and a style characterised by modern Scandinavian simplicity.
Salt & Sill has always been passionate about the environment. With food, it’s about using local raw materials as far as possible. During the building of the floating hotel, protecting the environment has obviously been at the top of the agenda. The establishment should have a positive impact on outdoor pursuits and recreation, and should have little or no effect on the living environment, safety or communications on the island. Neither should it cause any significant noise pollution, nor pollution of air, land or water. The excavating rock left over from the building work will be used to build a new lobster reef outside the hotel, which will benefit both fish and shellfish. The marine life underneath the floating pontoons is expected to increase, and will include a mussel purification plant. Naturally, the hotel will be heated using the surrounding water.
