Explore THE THIEF
Prepare for a canvas of gold, glass and granite to welcome you. Within this curved, nine-story complex, an artistic rendezvous awaits. Roam an estate rich in culture, holding the work of monarchs. Follow a collection of cultural masterpieces straight to your contemporary-infused room.This style blends divinely with supreme wellbeing. Take the shimmering pool, for instance, where morning dips become the norm. Or the tranquility of the hammam to remedy hours of exploration. The cherry on top is found at the rooftop terrace, where seafood delights astonish taste buds and toasts by the skyline are serendipitously made.
Sat harmoniously beside the modern buildings of car-free Tjuvholmen, or Thief Island, the hotel is a 15-minute walk from Oslo city centre. Once an execution ground for those who steal, the harbour and canal views afforded are one of the best in town.
Gloriously modern in design, the lifestyle boutique houses 116 rooms. Stays are light-filled thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows. Meanwhile, decor comprises a sleek mixture of quirky yet sauve furnishings and famed contemporary art.
Who is it for
The property’s Very Important Kid programme ensures those travelling with children are taken care of. However, the sultry glamour of the interiors is one that pairs excellently well with adults.
