Spa hotels are very popular in Finland, especially in winter, autumn and spring. If you are planning to spend a weekend or vacation in Finland, we recommend considering spa hotels as an option for accommodation. It is very pleasant to enjoy swimming and wellness treatments while the weather is cold outside. A spa hotel usually has a hotel, a spa, a gym, a wellness department and a restaurant.
Here you will find information on some good spa hotels (and links for booking). If you come to Finland in the summer, we recommend that you read these recommendations (resort hotels).
What do the letters SPA in the hotel name mean? SPA translated from Latin "sanus per aqua" means "health through water". This term usually refers to a wellness center, a recreation center that includes water treatments, often with a pool or water park.
