Medical wellness group Lanserhof is set to open its first coastal destination on the German island of Sylt. 

Opening in Spring 2022, the €120m (£101.9m, $138.7m) resort has been in the making for more than five years and will offer the brand’s signature approach that blends natural healing techniques with state-of-the-art diagnostics.

Often referred to as ‘the Hamptons of Germany’, Sylt is known for its restorative sea air, which are claimed to provide relief to those suffering from allergies and respiratory diseases.

The resort’s programming, overseen by cardiologist and medical director Dr Jan Stritzke, will offer cardiological rehabilitation for acute or chronic diseases as well as treatment for respiratory conditions and skin diseases alongside the brand’s signature LANS Med Concept. Medical consultations, individual therapies and spa treatments will also be on offer. 

Featuring 55 rooms and suites, housed beneath the largest thatched roof in Europe, the resort will offer a combined guest area of 20,000sqm.

The treatment area will occupy 5,000sqm, including a spacious spa area with steam baths, saunas, a relaxation area, indoor and outdoor pools and a sun terrace.

“Surrounded by the unique and ever-present nature of Sylt, the new health resort awaits guests in a place where modern, flowing and natural architecture radiates tranquillity.”

In addition to the main building, the resort will feature two interconnected saltwater indoor and outdoor pools with a counter-current system and a five-storey freestanding staircase.

Designed by architect Christoph Ingenhoven, Lanserhof Sylt was constructed from entirely sustainable, non-emitting materials.

The design was heavily influenced by the island itself, with earth tones, wood and organic materials allowing the resort’s spectacular setting to take centre stage. Frisian houses, which feature low storeys, wood, glass and thatch, also served as a source of inspiration.

“Surrounded by the unique and ever-present nature of Sylt, the new health resort awaits guests in a place where modern, flowing and natural architecture radiates tranquility and at the same time combines modern cutting-edge medicine with the help of state-of-the-art equipment and alternative naturopathy,” said Stritzke.

“For this new Lanserhof experience, we’ve built a great team of physicians, therapists, sports and nutrition scientists and beauticians. I can’t wait to introduce it to our guests.”
