Found on one of Estonia’s most picturesque islands, Padaste Manor is a delight. The 16th century estate has been restored to maintain the original architectural features while adding inviting, modern touches. The overall feeling is that of a cozy, fresh, upscale farmhouse. White walls and newly refinished hardwood floors complement exposed beams, oriental carpets, fireplaces, and refined furnishings. Many rooms have private balconies that look out on the sprawling property. Every room comes with soothing sounds from the Baltic Sea and lovely breezes, courtesy of nature! The spa, set on a quiet bay, is one of Estonia’s best—not to be missed. On offer are bespoke treatments including the Muhu Bay Bath and Peppermint Energy Scrubs. In summer, spa treatments end with a dip in the sweet water bay or a plunge in the outdoor hot tub during cooler months. Padaste Manor aims to restore and nurture its guests: activities include wandering through the apple orchard and extensive gardens, dining on Nordic cuisine, and visiting the traditional fishing village of Koguva.
