Minimalistic and modern aren’t typically two words that pop into your head when you think of a beach house, but the Stokkoya Sjosenter in Norway is just that.
This architecturally innovative resort on the island of Stokkoya is run by husband and wife team Torild and Roar. The two worked with top designers and architects from Norway and Denmark to create their vision – small, functional, fun and affordable summer houses that interact beautifully with the Norwegian landscape.
Each of the rooms at the Stokkoya Sjosenter is different and showcases furniture from expensive stores in Denmark and the attics of fisherman on the island. The eclectic taste and design of the hotel is what brings many people to the area, not to mention the beautiful Hosnasand Beach.
Stokkoya Sjosenter also has a Beach Bar that is quickly gaining attention, as it is one of the few places in its area that serves high-quality, exceptionally prepared food paired with good wine at a reasonable price.
Rooms at the Stokkoya Sjosenter are referred to as SUB units and are more like little houses than your standard hotel room. Decked out with concrete and glass elements, funky furniture and plush bedding, each SUB unit starts at $280/night and is easily enough room for 2-3 people.
Each unit has its own entrance and porch, and comes with breakfast and many other amenities. For larger groups, the Stokkoya Sjosenter has Costal Houses. See the Stokkoya Sjosenter website for availability and pricing.
