Hotel Saagain , Finland (Lapland)
Holiday Overall Rating
So what's it like?
The slopes of the Yllästunturi Mountain sit just metres away from the modern Lapland Hotel Saaga. Standing in the tree line of the mountain, this well-kept, modern hotel provides fabulous views of the fell and other scenery whatever time of day it is. And even if you’re not planning to ski or snowboard down the slopes, going in the gondola up the mountain means that you can experience the most wonderful views of Ylläs with a mug of hot chocolate from the ice-crusted cafe.
With 84 spacious rooms all featuring modern amenities, but maintaining their traditional Nordic-style wood finish, your stay at the Saaga is nothing more than luxurious. All rooms provide fantastic views of the wintery landscape and wonderful sunsets from the distant horizon, so you'll always have something to admire.
The Saaga houses three high-quality restaurants, so you have a wide variety of tastes to choose from. The buffet restaurant has something for everyone, from hearty breakfasts to satisfying dinners. If you fancy something more sophisticated, you can head over to the à la carte restaurant to try something more unusual. The bistro also serves food in a more relaxed setting, where you can get through a warming drink or two after a long day. The Fireplace Bar also serves up a variety of drinks to enjoy whilst chatting around the crackling fire. The chefs and bar staff alike are happy to accommodate you if you have any specific needs, so don’t be afraid to ask.
If you start to feel guilty after that massive meal you can pay a little extra for access to the wellness centre, which has a gym equipped with cardio and weighted equipment. Or, if you want to carry on treating yourself, you can enjoy peaceful isolation in the cave Jacuzzi®. There are single sex saunas and steam rooms available too, so you can reach ultimate relaxation. It's free to use the swimming pool, where the stone walls and relaxing lighting perfectly sets the mood.
