Besides castles at Versailles and luxury hotels in Switzerland, the newly built hotel in Inderøy in Trøndelag is one of 15 European hotels among the “101 most incredible hotels in the world” according to popular travel magazine Fodor’s Travel.
I think it was spam
– When I got an email from Fodor, I thought it was spam, he says
Oina’s president Frode Sketchup in a press release.
In the end, he had the courage to open it up. – Being selected as one of the 15 best hotels in Europe is awesome!
Frode and Kristine Sakshaug built and opened Øyna Kulturlandskapshotell during the pandemic. Even before Fodor’s nomination, they gained international recognition through their nomination “Building of the Year” i Arch Daily 2021.
For 80 years, Fodor’s Travel has built a reputation for providing reliable travel advice. Travel magazine doesn’t save on sweets when They justify why Øyna Kulturlandskapshotell is one of the 101 most incredible hotels in the world:
“Saying that a luxury hotel looks like a Lord of the Rings-style hobby cabin isn’t the smartest thing to do. But Uena Kulturlandscapshotell, a literal hidden hillside retreat in Inderøy in central Norway, makes the comparison a compliment.”
And after this opening, Fodor’s reasoning continues as follows:
“Here, home comfort is combined with the comfort of a five-star hotel. All rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows and private balconies. The property is designed in the shape of a semicircle and gives the rooms a panoramic view of the Trondheim Fjord and the “golden bend”, which passes through the attractive nature of the municipality of Inderøy”.
– Gear andUnfamiliar attention
The Britannia Hotel in Trondheim was on the same list in 2019 when the hotel reopened.
It has given us great interest internationally and especially in the United States, says Peter Andre Gerdi, Director of Marketing and Communications at the Britannia Hotel.
Congratulations, everyone in Britannia! This is really big and shows that you can be visible in the world as long as the product is good enough and when you work well together to achieve international press coverage for the area, says Gjerde.
It started with farm food
Øyna’s story began in 2000 with the production and sale of farm-to-cage food on Frode and Kristine Sakshaug’s farm. In 2020, Øyna Kulturlandskapshotell is being built in the hill on top of Inderøy.
