Gold Key – Judges’ So Cool

Located on the remote, windblown island of Hamneskär, outside Marstrand on the Swedish west coast, the isolated home of a lighthouse master has become one of Scandinavia’s most sought after destinations. With the lighthouse dating back to 1868 overlooking the hazardous waters surrounding the tiny island, the name Pater Noster—which translates to the Lord’s Prayer in Latin—was given in tribute to the sailors’ prayers for safety. For almost 110 years, generations of lighthouse keepers have lived with their families in the extreme environment, caring for the lighthouse, rescuing shipwrecked sailors, and forming the small, isolated society. Now, a group of Swedish entrepreneurs, hoteliers, restaurateurs, designers, and professional sailors have given it a second life, creating nine guestrooms, a restaurant, bar, and outdoor cafe.

“During my 30 years within the hospitality business, I have rarely come across such a unique destination,” says StyltTrampoli founder and partner in the lighthouse project Erik Nissen Johansen. “It’s all there—the remote location, the fantastic nature, the extreme weather conditions, the thrilling history—and great hospitality with a dash of roughness and low-key luxury.”
