Welcome to Sandhamn

Sandhamn Seglarhotell has its origins dating back to the 19th century when the building was inaugurated by King Oscar II as the clubhouse of the Royal Swedish Yacht Club. Today, it is operated as a modern archipelago hotel by the couple Johanna and Marcus Wallen.


A modern hotel for great experiences in the archipelago

We believe that today’s archipelago traveler seeks both nature and comfort. Being on Sandhamn is a magical experience, with sailing, lovely beaches, and walks with dramatic sea views. Here, you also have access to modern hotel rooms, a cozy spa with a gym and pool area, and a top-class kitchen run by chefs from Stockholm’s most popular establishments.

At Sandhamn Seglarhotell, you can always experience the archipelago — every day, all year round. From the vibrant summer, when the island comes alive and our after-sail is open for parties and socializing. To the rest of the year, when the hotel is filled with Christmas buffets, concerts, theme weeks, and other activities. Whether you’re a conference group, a sailing crew, a family with children, or a loving couple, you’ll always find a reason to relax with us at Sandhamn Seglarhotell.
