Nearly new hotel right on the beach in Larvik. Very modern yet very comfortable. Great views of the water. Quiet, clean and comfortable room. Great spa facilities. Used their business conference room which was set up very well. Great breakfast included with the room. Great service from the staff. Will definitely repeat.

We had an exelent stay at Farris Bad. This modern hotel has an exciting architecture at the beach of Larvik. The Spa department had a lot to offer. And there was direct access to the sea from the Spa. The restaurant served good food. And the breakfast was ecelent. We also spent one day on the Telemark canal which also... More

Me and my spose spent two nights in this wonderfull hotel, and it really made our summer perfect! The room, the silence, the environment, the Spa and the breakfast buffet put together by meat, fish and vegetables from nearby made us feel relaxed and healthy. With green apples and fresh water available all the time, we felt refreshed and calm... More

We had a lovely weekend at Farris Bad! The main facility is naturally the excellent spa, as the area around is not overwhelmingly exciting... However, the hotel is situated on a lovely beach, and the sea view is fantastic. I think the best way to enjoy the view is from the terrace, as the rooms facing the sea are very... More

I have tried many of the different rooms at Farris Bad Hotel, and overall I'm very pleased. I would say it is the best hotel along the eastern coast of Norway. But like every other hotel it has it's deficiencies. My preferable stays have been much due to the location of the room. The rooms located on the southern side... More

The Spa is superb, but the Hotel was way under expectation considering the price. The room/bed was good, even if I had expected an upgrade considering I booked two packages, but extremely noisy as it was above the restaurant/bar. The Hotel seems to be very attractive for groups/seminars so if you want to spend a calm week-end it get's difficult.... More

Really good service all over, wonderful diverified spa and treatments, many near by excursion opportunities. Nice selection for dinner and a respectable wine list. Little bit unlucky with a noisy air condition though.

All hotels have their wee faults/foibles and this hotel is no exception, so the bad bits are easier to list than the good bits, so I'll start there first. Well the room even though it is gorgeous, has small signs of wear and tear here and there, and I am talking insignificant bumps and dents in the furniture, you know,... More

I can really recommend this spa hotel. A great spa experience, great facilities and additional good spa programs included in the price. I really enjoyed the spa aufguss and sauna with a sea horizon view. Delicate rooms and great service. They can improve slightly on the evening restaurant and food, but overall a great hotel experience!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The last Ice Age lasted 100,000 years and formed the moraine on which Larvik and Norway’s largest beech forest rest. Roughly 10,000 years ago the ice retreated, and water filtered through the gravel beds and formed a pure, nutritious spring.Mineral-rich spring water has poured out in Larvik since the dawn of time. Steeped in nutrients. Health-bringing.In 1843, Karen Linaae established the first spa at this natural spring. In 1880, Dr. Ingebrigt Holm built a new spa. It was frequented by the likes of Ibsen and Bjørnson, Lagerlöf and Hamsun. They stayed here, danced here, and partook in the curative spa. Soon, the effervescent, heath-bringing water from Larvik was known throughout Europe. The story of the new Farris BadIn 1990, Mille Marie Treschow launched the first idea of building a hotel at Barretistranda. When construction started in 2007 it hailed the end to years of negotiations to acquire permission. In 2005 the project was stopped by the Norwegian Ministry of Environment and Chief County Executive Mona Røkke. For ten months, the plans were in danger of being shelved; but after making changes to the drawings, establishing a public beach zone and mobilising a 10,000-signature petition, the plans were finally approved. On 5 March 2009, the new Farris Bad was officially opened with one foot on land and one foot in the sea, with one foot in history and one foot in the future. The hotel has 176 rooms, including 10 ocean suites and 40 spa rooms.The hotel is owned by Mille Marie Treschow and Stein Erik Hagen, each with a 50% share. The total investment is in the region of NOK 350 million. Farris Bad is operated by Choice Hotels Scandinavia AS, the largest hotel chain in Scandinavia with more than 8,000 employees and an annual turnover of over NOK 5 billion.Farris Bad is the first brand name in Norway that Choice has launched as a unique “stand alone” brand. Farris Bad shall therefore be developed as an independent brand. ... more   less
