Scandic Kristiansand Bystranda opens in Norway

An 800-bed, 229-room Scandic hotel was opened yesterday in Norway. The design of Scandic Kristiansand Bystranda draws on mankind’s relationship with the sea in both exterior and interior design, with colours inspired by the harbour of Kristiansand. Wide-reaching views are afforded across the beach, the harbour and the archipelago and interior designers Krook & Tjader have incorporated oceanic references into the internal décor. The design meets all 110 points in Scandic’s Accessibility Standard and offers 23 rooms adapted for disabled guests.

“Scandic is growing and we are constantly on the hunt for hotel projects in great locations. We’ve found a real treasure with Scandic Kristiansand Bystranda - one of the finest hotels in Norway, right on the beach but at the same time in the heart of town. Finally, Kristiansand has a hotel that offers the very best for holidaymakers and business travellers alike. During the summer, we’ll be focusing on families and tourists, while in the winter the focus will be on courses and conferences,” says Svein Arild Steen-Mevold, Vice President Scandic Norway.
