Ok we know it’s only the first day back at work for most people but if you are anything like us at House of Coco you are already thinking about your next holiday. We want to make sure that all the travel we do this year is pure luxury and there is one very special feature which unites many of the world’s finest luxury hotels – the presence of a hand crafted Hästens bed.
For all the high tech gadgetry and opulence expected by today’s discerning traveller, the bed surely remains any room’s most important feature. Genuine relaxation and the – all too rare – luxury of deep sleep is a privilege that most hotel beds are incapable of providing. Which is why hotels that aspire to true luxury status don’t settle for any old bed, they opt for the superior craftsmanship of a Hästens bed.
Why do the best hotels in the world choose to equip their finest rooms and suites with Hästens beds? Simply put, they are the best beds in the world. Based in Koping, Sweden Hästens have dedicated themselves to the fine art of providing the best night’s sleep possible since 1852 and their dedication to this noble cause really does know no bounds. Beds are handcrafted using the finest natural materials and each one takes a remarkable 160 hours to make. The result is worth every second and really will redefine your expectations of how comfortable a bed can be.
Want to experience the best night’s sleep of your life? Here’s our pick of the best Hästens equipped hotels on the planet:
