Kukšu Muiža

Historic hotel in Kandava

The owner has poured his heart and soul into turning the once-derelict estate into one of the top rural inns in Latvia. The rooms and salons are stuffed with gilded aristocratic heirlooms and flamboyant chandeliers, but the true pièce de rèsistance is the made-to-order dinner menu, which caters to every guest’s whim and only features locally grown organic produce.

The manor's history begins in 1530, but the lakeside peach-colorued mansion you see now is largely a product of 19th-century reconstruction. It is located near the village of Kukšas, 10km south of Kandava.
