Stayed 2 nights in a villa apartment. This was a nice way to stay here for a family as we had our own kitchen and didn't need to rely on the restaurants, which were a bit overpriced (as expected in a resort). We had unlimited water park passes, which we all enjoyed. Service was generally friendly but not as consistently... More

A very nice location by the lake Saimaa. In addition to the spa hotel there are a quite many holiday apartments in Rauhaniemi area, so I guess that during the peak season it can get pretty crowded. The Holiday Club rooms were in very nice condition and comfortable. Spa was clearly aimed for younger cliente; it has nice water slides... More

The spa is established in the area of a former psychiatric hospital, Rauhan sairaala, "hospital of peace". During the time of our visit the old ward building was under construction. I don't know whether they are going to offer also the seclusion rooms to the clients. Not a bad idea... To get there you need a car. HCF Saimaa is... More

Great place to rest in new hotel, with rooms of high quality. Spa within hotel isn't best in Finland, but is worth visiting with or without sleepover in hotel, if you happen to be nearby. Several restaurants offer you variety of food with different price ranges from 15 € O'learys burger to high-end horsemeat steak.

Three days, from Sunday to Wednesday. We chose a good time for our small holiday: in the beginning of the week, and just before Easter. No rush in the spa, no queues in the breakfast room. Spa was really nice: clean and big enough. Nice music show with colourful water effects. Several hot tubes, good swimming possibilities. Hotel environment is... More

From friday to sunday in the shift of February and March in Holiday Club Saimaa was busy weekend - an active weekend which required two days and rest back home to recover. We enjoyed only a small portion of the huge offering of the resort and that filled our days: Spa Experience in a crowded pools and saunas, music, coloured... More

Two nights. Two rooms, no connecting rooms available. 2 adults; 3 kids. Rooms big enough and clean. Water park perfect for kids. As expected, wine at the pool bar, less of quality. But who else would like a cold class of Sancerre? Bit wider wine selection at the sport bar in the hotel; food american style. Recommend for kids and... More

I stayed here for just two nights on a business trip booked by my hosts and came away with mixed feelings. The complex is massive with different areas including normal hotel rooms and time-share villas, and my room was quite basic but comfortable nonetheless. The food in Le Biff and the neighbouring seafood restaurant (which may or may not be... More

We visited Rauha Spa with school age girls Rauha Spa. Very warm water and children liked especially the place where there was light show with water performance. The Spa is quite small. The staff was very friendly and gave good advices visitors who were there for the first time.
