“A Hidden Treasure to be Shared!”
Reviewed 7 May 2006

Last visited my beloved Padaste Manor in March, completing my seasonal exploration of this amazingly charming little luxury manor, located on Muhu Island in Western Estonia. Been there now during sunny winter days of refreshing outdoors activities followed by a hot drink by the fireplace, during explodingly green spring days of horseback riding in the surrounding forests and finishing off with a smoothing massage in the spa, during sunny&rainy summer days of midsummer celebrations accompanied by all-night dance around the bonfire, and during crisp fall weekends when the foliage is at its best and dark nights are spent by singing with friends by the grand piano while the fireplace crackles it's own tunes.
Why do I keep coming back, in different seasons, under different circumstances? Because I've simply fallen for the Muhu Magic and Padaste Charm - and have developed a serious weakness for their friendly, uncompromising service and discreet luxury.
I could analyze Padaste into pieces for you. But I'd rather save you the joy of discovering what all this magic place can trigger in your body, mind and soul, for it will touch all sides in you! Weather through the beauty of the simple but serene surroundings; the physical joys of an unhurried massage or relaxing sauna; the temptations to your tastebuds over breakfast, lunch or dinner; the joy of singalong by the fireplace and grand piano, orchestrated by one of the owners; the simple aesthetics of everything around you indoors and outdoors; or simply enjoying the pieceful nights and relaxing sleep in the lovely rooms.
Mostly I go to Padaste to relax, rest and to allow myself to think in piece and quiet, but weekends amongst friends have turned out to be some of the greatest I can think of, too. The wonderful staff is ever attentive even to your smallest needs and the uncompromising owners are always 'scheming' to make your stay better that before, and making you feel at home.
Padaste Manor is on one hand a small luxury resort catering to the needs of the demanding traveler. Yet it is much more: a place to fall in love with in all seasons, a tranquil oasis that let's also your soul rest and fullfill itself, a place where you are simply in the 'now', completely centered and one with the universe. For those looking to discover the best in life - and to rediscover themselves - you have found it, right here, at Padaste.
Finally - I had to ask myself why would I want to share this treasure with outsiders... and remembered how someone had the generosity to share it with me and thought: "pay it forward". Hope to meet you there one of these days!

Having travelled extensively for many years we have found the Hotel that ticks every box.

Padaste is sheer heaven. It is quite an accomplishment to create a luxury environment where every small detail is taken into account....and more, while at the same time making the welcome and ethos such that every guest feels content, relaxed and so at home.
We know of nowhere that has ever captured the ambience of Padaste. You know the minute you arrive that Padast is very, very special.

The quiet but super efficient service is second to none. Sitting in the morning sun on the lawn having breakfast to sitting on the beautiful terrace in the evening having dinner, prepared to standards seldom experienced anywhere in the world, while looking out over the Gulf of Finland are some of the precious memories that make travel such a wonderful experience.

Padaste can offer anything you need from spa treatments, horse riding, private cinema, picnics, guided tours of both Muhu and across the causeway to Saarema, and much, much more.

There is always the temptation to keep such a place a secret but business is important!

This is one place we will most certainly return to.........as soon as possible.
