The Baltic Sea has yet to be discovered by those beyond Germany it seems. The resort of Heringsdorf, Usedom began in the 1880's as an outpost for Berlin's elite bankers and industrialists. This elegant town has now been brought back to its former glory with German precision. The Hotel Oasis is one of only a handful of beach-fronted/promenaded-front villas still in its original size, with 15 stylishly appointed rooms--no brown plastic sofas or overstuffed old furniture.It is surrounded by tall pines and much greenery, including gorgeous rhododendrons all over. The in-house restaurant, Rossini, is a destination restaurant and well worth the visit. We ate here twice, enjoying excellent wines, service and food to die for. The second restaurant at garden/promenade level is a Thai outdoor patio offering good fresh fish dishes but otherwise I would pass on the more typical fried Thai offerings--had to ask for a fish knife, an extra plate for bones etc so it was not staffed by experienced people; however, we enjoyed sitting here having a gin and tonic after a long day on the fine, white sandy beach. Miles and miles of walking along the long, deep flat beach and seawater at 21 degrees so very nice to swim and jump small waves.
If you are visiting in the height of summer, as we did, ask for a room on the first floor as those on the second floor are very hot, even when the air is cool outside. Overhead ceiling fans would be a great help to allow air to circulate more. Prices are at the top end compared to other hotels in Heringsdorf but this property is truly unique in the way it has been carefully restored and furnished so pleasantly.
Fly to Berlin and drive northeast 3.5 hours or Rostock (Germany) or Stettin (Poland) would be even closer , or take the train as you really do not need a car once you arrive; this hotel and others rent bicycles by the day. German Wings flies directly to a small airport only a few miles away from Heringsdorf. Great golf is also available close by.
