Emocja SPA Hotel*** was opened because of the passion we have for amber, which is one of the greatest polish treasures of nature . It is present not only in the name of our hotel restaurant, but also in many other places in our hotel. This stone which is also known as ‘the Gold of the Baltic Sea’ has been fascinating the owners for many years, that is why a warehouse PPHU Emocja was opened in 1991. It offers jewellery made solely out of the Baltic amber.
Baltic amber is a 40 million years old fossilized resin from trees that overgrow present-day area of Scandinavia and the north parts of the Baltic Sea, which in former times was a landmass. It might be referred to as a ‘living’ stone, because it changes its face under the influence of oxidisation and polymerisation.
Amber has a large range of colours. The most popular ones have a colour of cognac and honey, the more original ones are green, grey or even blue. The variety and easy processing that this stone offers is the reason why it can be used both in classic and modern forms in various fields.
An interesting phenomenon is inclusion, that is the occurrence of small insects or plants inside of this precious stone. Such specimen is a great source of information for scientists analysing evolution. What makes us even prouder is the fact that the owners discovered a new breed of a ground bug that was called ‘Aphrophoridae’, a word deriving from Latin. This stone is now in the Muzeum Ziemi museum in Warsaw.
Our interiors are one of a kind because of many amber decorations present in our hotel. There are many photos presenting different faces of amber, as well as a small gallery in a hotel hall with silver and amber makings. During summer season our guests can buy in our Amber & Silver Gallery jewellery shop original jewellery and amber souvenirs.
