Reading Time: 4 minutes

Riga is a key economic and financial center for the Baltic states, which include Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania. However, Riga also has a lot to offer in terms of attractions, such as the oldest houses in the city called “Three Brothers” or the Old Town Center made up of the photogenic House of the Blackheads. I was invited to stay at Gallery Park Hotel & SPA, a 5-star luxury boutique hotel, and member of Châteaux & Hôtels Collection, located in Riga’s historic center.

Art Nouveau & 19th-century mansion

The Gallery Park Hotel & SPA is housed inside a 19th-century mansion, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Building and a Latvian State Monument. The hotel is located in Riga’s Art Noveau district and only a short walk to the historic Old Town. Premier attractions, including the Riga Congress Hall and Latvian National Museum of Art are situated just across the street of the hotel.

As soon as you set foot into the impressive hotel lobby, you are transformed back in time to the 19th century and feel like a princess. All of the furniture at the hotel is made up of authentic antics purchased in Latvia and around the world. Most of the rooms also have high, hand-painted ceilings, fireplaces and antique chandeliers. Moreover, the hotel features a swimming pool, on-site secured underground parking, a Gallery SPA with sauna and fitness room, and a private Mercedes S-class & Viano fleet.

GALLERY SPA – A TIMELESS OASIS

The Gallery SPA was one of my favorite areas of the hotel. It’s the perfect place to warm up in a sauna, have an energetic swim in a jet-stream swimming pool or work out in a Technogym equipped fitness room.

If that wasn’t enough, you can also book various treatments here: massages, facials, aromatherapy or warm body wrapping.
