Alexandra Wastesson is the new hotel manager at Marholmen

Marholmen is now taking another step towards putting the island in Roslagen on the map. "Together we are developing Marholmen into Sweden's most obvious year-round destination," says Alexandra Wastesson, who has taken over as the new hotel manager.

Marholmen is located in the Roslagen archipelago, just outside Norrtälje and offers a wide range of accommodation and activities all year round. On the 34-hectare island there is a hotel, Skärgårdshus, historic villas, glamping, conference, spa, restaurant, pitches, party rooms, hot tubs and much more.

"I am incredibly happy to have been entrusted with the task and I am burning with desire to drive the development of Marholmen forward together with all my colleagues," says Alexandra Wastesson, hotel manager at Marholmen.

Even as a child at home in Uppsala, Alexandra dreamed of working in the hospitality industry and trained in the Hotel & Tourism program at Ekebyskolan in Uppsala. Since then, Alexandra has acquired a solid professional background from a number of different roles, most recently as an operations controller at Stockholm Meeting Selection.

"I didn't hesitate for a second when I was offered the chance to be an important cog in Marholmen's continued development journey. I am a person who wants to be where the action is, drive development forward and create profitability. Now I am in exactly the right place to do just that," concludes Alexandra.

Throughout history, people have come to Marholmen for relaxation and recreation. In 1913, Nils and Hanna Berg donated part of Marholmen to the Swedish Trade Union Confederation (LO) to give working wives and workers the opportunity to rest. Today, Marholmen is owned and developed by the Swedish Municipal Workers' Union.
