The team at Villa Copenhagen is determined to redefine the luxury hotel experience. At the foundation of Villa Copenhagen is a belief that luxury is dependent on conscious and sensible choices that take the environment and communities into account, going beyond material things to an appreciation and an enjoyment of the best that life has to offer. At Villa Copenhagen, guests will gain an understanding that conscious luxury is about enjoying everything from grand experiences and unexpected encounters to quality food and inspiring surroundings, while at the same time taking responsibility for one’s actions and travelers’ collective impact on the planet.

Villa Copenhagen is determined to redefine the industry. It is hotel in a league of its own that offers experiences of beauty, knowledge, and humanity at their deepest and most inspiring level. A place that brings people together, who would otherwise never meet. A temporary home for the adventurous, the socially and environmentally conscious and the quality-oriented citizens of the world.
Acting sustainable should not be a choice, it should be a given. As citizens of the modern world, we cannot hide from the fact that our lifestyle impacts the environment. As travellers and explorers – whether business or pleasure- we should recognise the impact we make and try to limit our footprint to the best of our abilities. One of the core values of Villa Copenhagen is Conscious Luxury. One might ask what that actually means, which is a valid question asked to an upscale hotel that strives to provide its visitors and guests with experiences and surroundings above and beyond.
