Juvet Landscape Hotel
Every detail at this former farm has been carefully executed to focus on one thing, and one thing only: Its spectacular natural setting, now part of a nature preserve near the southwest coast of Norway. Its award-winning design – all nine “cubes” seem to levitate above the rushing Valldøla River below – was the architects’ solution for securing hard-to-get government permits: By building the cabins atop metal rods drilled into stone, no trees were cut or stones blasted, and it can all be carted away with no trace left behind. The wooden structures are purposefully sparse, with only a bed, simple bathroom, and a couple of lounge chairs next to a wall of glass for meditating on the river, the forest, the Valldal valley and snow-capped mountains beyond. The layout of the cabins was configured so that none of them have direct views of the others, ensuring privacy and eliminating any distractions from the views. The spa area is perched on a bluff overlooking the river, with a small outdoor hot tub and a steam room with a large glass wall. A renovated cow barn is where meals are served at a long common table; breakfasts are included, and always feature the to-die-for smoked salmon, while the three-course dinners are extra, but worth the splurge for locally foraged and sourced courses such as reindeer steaks.
