Hotel Skipper Rewa
Enthusiasts of surfing will definitely appreciate the location and offer of the Hotel Skipper in Rewa. The picturesque location on Rewa Sandbar on Kashubian “Szperk” impresses with a rich form of the shore. It’s a perfect place for sailors as well as those passionate with windsurfing and kite surfing. More than a kilometer long sandy promontory extending into the sea separates warm waters of the Puck Bay from saltier and colder waters of the Gdańsk Bay. Most of the sandbar (or shoal) is in a body of water and extends until it reaches the Hel Peninsula shallows. On the one side of the promontory even when it winds strongly the water stays still and even. That’s why it’s a great spot to take your first surfing steps – but those who prefer more advanced water activities will be also satisfied.
A modern marine interior catches the eye with its tasteful minimalism. There are 47 rooms with 95 accommodation spots. You can also visit Rewa to recover – a wide selection of Spa & Wellness treatments is performed in 6 professional rooms. There’s also Saunarium with a Finnish sauna, infrared sauna and steam bath.
The guests preferring “slow” relaxing will appreciate a pool with ozonized water or a hot tub. Skipper is also a choice for those who combine business networking with active relaxation – the hotel provides with some sunny conference rooms by the sea with free Wi-Fi connection. Bukszpryt Restaurant, a part of the hotel, will surprise you with its unexpected combinations of tastes, wide range of Baltic fish, great selection of Kashubian meals and dumplings. Skipper tempts with hospitality and friendly atmosphere all year long.

Hotel Notera ****
Hotel Notera is a role model in terms of corporate social responsibility. A unique combination of design and respect for nature will impress anyone who is aware and cares deeply about getting in touch with nature. A charming view at Charzykowskie Lake and innovative ecological and infrastructural solutions are good reasons to visit this place. The hotel is located in the heart of Tuchola Forest, only 125 km away from Gdańsk and 200 km away from Poznań. Tuchola Forest is one of the most important and the biggest woodlands in Poland. The land of unique natural values gives shelter to an exceptionally rich fauna.
It’s a home to many protected species of birds (black storks, white-tailed eagles, crows, common cranes, common goldeneyes, Eurasian eagle-owls) and mammals (racoon dogs, wild boars, deer, foxes, badgers). The majority of Tuchola Forest is covered by pine trees; a part of the forest is mixed. Huge attractions are so-called lobelia lakes, known for their crystal clear water. Two rivers flow through Tuchola Forest – Brda and Wda, which fall into many lakes creating popular kayaking trails. The most precious parts of Tuchola Forest are environmental protection areas. There are some landscape parks such as Tuchola Park, Wdzydze Park, Wda Park, Zaborski Park and the most important one – Bory Tucholskie National Park with its central part which is Struga Siedmiu Jezior – a little river that falls into 7 lakes (Ostrowite, Zielone, Jeleń, Bełczak, Główka, Płęsno and Mielnica – Skrzynka). Being a part of Natura 2000 and UNESCO Biosphere Reserve confirms the uniqueness and great value of Tuchola Forest.
An exceptional location demands the right infrastructural approach, that’s why the facility uses heat pumps, energy-efficient lighting and solutions preventing the waste of electricity. The UV lamps support the purification of pool water. The heat from the water is also recovered here. Pro-ecological actions are supported by locals as well as by guests.
The hotel is also animal-friendly. Cats and dogs are welcome here. A wonderful location makes Notera not only a great place for a family trip, a romantic weekend, but also a private rest in one of the cleanest regions in Poland. It’s also an interesting place to organize conferences, workshops and business meetings.
Seventy eight comfortable rooms and apartments, SPA area with pool and a hot tub, dry sauna, steam sauna and infrared sauna – Noteras attractions take the daily stress away and help you regenerate both body and mind quickly and effectively.
