Finland has two secret ingredients that make it the perfect wellness destination – its lakes and saunas. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday in beautiful and absolutely peaceful surroundings, then try out these hotels in Finland.
1. Hotel Anttolanhovi
Located on the shores of Lake Saimaa, the largest lake in the country, the surroundings will put you in awe. The resort, on the other hand, allows you to enjoy the scenery through its lakeside villas. Guests can book a wellness holiday package for couples and enjoy the other amenities like restaurants, fishing, and sports.
2. Arctic Forest Spa
This is the place to go if you want to go as close to the North Pole as possible, and this hotel is even part of the SantaPark Arctic World Resort in Rovaniemi. This specific hotel in this resort is where you come to relax. Imagine trying out their 3 different saunas (the traditional one, a modern infrared version, and a smoke sauna) in the heart of an arctic forest. Another unforgettable experience is watching the northern lights in a jacuzzi.
3. Imatra Spa Resort
Imatra is a spa resort that caters more to families with both relaxing spa treatments and family pool and sports facilities. The waterslides and waterfalls of the tropical-themed pool areas are highly appealing to children, while parents can enjoy the water massage spouts or the privacy of the spa with treatments such as massages, herbal baths, hot stone treatments, and facials.
4. Hotel & Spa Resort Järvisydän
This hotel spa was founded in 1658 and is one of the most popular in the country. Their sauna and spa treatments honor the tradition, while the location has been delicately preserved. Still, guests can enjoy some more modern activities like yoga pilates. Make sure you book a suite overlooking Lake Saimaa.
5. Wellness Manor Kaisankoti
Located near Espoo and a few minutes drive away from Helsinki, it is a good option for a quick relaxing escape from the city. In fact, this hotel managed by the Kaisa Kallio Foundation was conceptualized for city dwellers who need a break. With the beautiful grounds, the spa center, and high-class restaurants, it is the right place to go.
6. Hotel Kalevala
The antique wooden exterior is not the only thing unique about this hotel. You can also try out some unusual spa treatments here like Finish bonesetting, aromatherapy bath, peat sauna, and reiki healing.
7. Rauhalahti Hotel
Found outside of Kuopio, it used to be a lumberjack lodge. Now it has a spa, pool, 3 saunas, a lakeside beach, and a huge countryside for walks. You can also book an apartment with your own sauna.
8. Rokua Health & Spa Hotel
The location is unique because Rokua geopark has geographical formations all the way from the last ice age. It is also the right location for your luxury spa holiday. They also offer other services like whirlpool baths, hairdressing, and cosmetology treatments.
The Finnish know how to enjoy nature and they know their saunas. From the relaxing treatments to the peaceful surroundings, they have all you would ever need to unwind and recover from modern life’s stress.
