Many hotels and attractions around Estonia are seizing this opportunity to begin construction or complete renovations. The summer capital of Estonia – Pärnu – is revamping its beach promenade to include new cafes, restaurants, cocktail bars and family areas. The promenade, located along the town's famous white sand beach, is a beloved summer holiday hangout for Estonians and international visitors alike thanks to warm waters and playful vibes.
Up the western coast in cosy seaside town Haapsalu, Estonia's first 7-star hotel will open this summer. Villa Friedheim will boast just six suites. The project is being kept under wraps, so the anticipation to see the unveiling and final result is mounting!
If you didn't have enough reason to visit hilly and tranquil central Estonia, then the manor house opening this July near Viljandi will be worth a visit. The manor will feature 18 rooms, a restaurant and a wellness area. Construction will also begin this summer on a major spa hotel and waterpark located on the lakeside in Viljandi. Between these new openings and the recent opening of Park Hotel Viljandi, there are more and more reasons to linger in central Estonia for a while.
To top it all off, some of Tallinn's best-known hotels are emerging from thorough renovations including Radisson Blu (turning into Radison Collection, 2022), Nordic Hotel Forum (spring 2022), and Tallink City (this summer).
Several established hotel chains have also confirmed development plans in Estonia. Radisson Red will debut in Tallinn's bustling Telliskivi creative district in 2023, Hyatt Place will launch a property with 168 rooms, and there are whispers that Hampton by Hilton will open in the coming years in the central Tartu maantee area – a busy street connecting the airport to the Old Town (just opposite the Central Market, which will get its own cool revamp soon, too). The Baltics' first Novotel Living will also open 124 studio apartments in Tallinn's up-and-coming harbour area, near a newly renovated ferry terminal.
