 When Smålandshavet was founded in the 1970s, it was only supposed to be a well-equipped vacation destiantion. But it soon became clear that the faciltity had much more potential.

The Woman’s Workers Union in Denmark (KAD) bought Smålandshavet from its original developer in the start of the 1980s, with the idea of using it to help train the union’s employee represenatatives.​

It soon because clear that the original restaurant rooms and rooms for vacation use weren’t enough to meet the demand for course space. The center was expanded with a modern conference and course wing in 1985.

In 1994, the Tower Building was added. It contained an IT room, plenum and group rooms, and a large, comfortable lounge that could host all the guests at the center, even when it was fully booked.

Around 2000 all the rooms were renovated with new floors and new furniture, and new TVs were installed in all of the rooms. A new round of renovations began in 2011. This renovation is an ongoing process dedicated to constantly improving the quality of our facilities and of your experience.

We look forward to showing you all this and more.

 ​Yours sincerely,

 Lone Warburg, Principal Manager
