Where the city meets the fjord, we steal you away from your everyday routine and settle you into a world of water and well-being, peace and relaxation.
THIEF SPA has brought together the very best of spa cultures from across the world. In an intimate atmosphere inspired by Norwegian nature – slate, moss, sea and Nordic light – we recreate rituals from the Turkish hammam, Moroccan rhassoul and German aufguss. Using a fantastic range of products, we have put together a rich spa menu for healthy skin, a new glow and pure pleasure.

THIEF RHASSOUL | STEAM ROOM
Rhassoul is a Moroccan spa tradition that we have brought home. Rhassoul is a volcanic clay found at the foot of the Atlas Mountains. It is widely recognised for its therapeutic properties: cleansing, healing and softening.
The treatment takes place in THIEF SPA’s steam room and starts with an effective salt scrub to cleanse the skin. Then the therapeutic clay is applied. After 15 minutes, the clay is automatically rinsed off using a warm ceiling-mounted rainfall shower.
All guests at THIEF SPA are welcome to visit our steam room.
THIEF AUFGUSS | FINNISH SAUNA
Aufguss is a German word which means “to pour.” Our Aufguss master will give you an unforgettable sauna experience that you won’t find anywhere else. The master pours water and essential oils onto the hot stones in the sauna. Using different towel techniques, the hot steam and the scents of the oils are effectively distributed in the room, providing health benefits such as increased blood circulation and energy levels.
There is also a focus on Dr Kneipp’s method – varying between cold and hot – a recognised form of treatment that provides great stimulation for the immune system.
All guests at THIEF SPA are welcome to visit our Finnish sauna.
Hammam is a Turkish bathing ritual based on ancient traditions. Before it was common to have a bathroom at home, people would visit the local hammam for a body cleanse and treatment. It was also social meeting place.
On the heated hammam bench in THIEF SPA, the therapist begins with a thorough body scrub which effectively cleanses the skin, removes dead cells and increases blood circulation. Then there is the ritual addition of warm soap suds and a light foam massage followed by a scalp massage. After this treatment, you will feel totally relaxed and your skin will have a fresh, new glow.
The hammam has a twin bench for people who wish to do the ritual together.
The fjord is our closest neighbour and is a Stone’s throw from the thief spa. Bathing in the sea Stimulates blood circulation and sharpens the senses.
We have access to both a bathing jetty and a beach.
We will help you choose the treatment that best suits your needs.
