A Neoclassical Addition to Pärnu's Spa Scene ({{commentsTotal}})

A renovation of a golden-age Olev Siinmaa-designed building in the resort town of Pärnu has opened as the city's newest spa hotel.

The seaside building, dating from 1927 and also boasting restored sculptures by contemporary Voldemar Mellik, is based at the granddaddy of the city's resorts, the mud baths first opened in 1838.

The renovation of the Siinmaa building was started last year, its 175th anniversary, and cost 11 million euros. Eighty jobs were created by the opening of the hotel.

Blurring the lines between health and pleasure, the new spa is named Hedon. An average night in one of the 72 rooms was going for over 100 euros, and around double the price of the city's other spas - most of them set in functionalist architecture.
