Hotel Story

Vihula Manor is a charming 16th-century estate with two main manor house buildings, 25 other historical buildings and 50 hectares of beautiful parkland set alongside the Mustoja River in the Lahemaa National Park, 4 km from the Baltic Sea coast and an hour’s drive from Tallinn, Estonia.

Vihula Manor Country Club & Spa is the first full-service manor resort in the Baltic countries, set amidst wildlife-rich Lahemaa National Park and only 4 km from the gentle waters of the Baltic Sea in Northern Estonia.

This elegant and secluded estate of country house hotels is a perfect escape from the bustling life of the city and a supremely comfortable and luxurious place to stay, whether you are here on business, attending a family celebration or relaxing on holiday.

Vihula Manor is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places in Estonia, with its painstakingly renovated ensemble of historical buildings located in picture-perfect balance with each other and the surrounding nature.

 An elegant 16th-century manor offers a perfect change from the city life with a luxurious stay. Primarily the manor fascinates guests with its atmosphere and picturesque location in Lahemaa National Park. Our spa combines the historical atmosphere and luxury, traditions and modern comfort, eco-awareness and ancient spa rituals. It is the perfect place for meetings, anniversaries, weddings in the quiet atmosphere of Lahemaa National Park, away from the bustling city life, yet just an hour’s drive from Tallinn.

We wish all our employees, partners and guests to carry with them environment saving principles in all that they do.
