We booked a package that included the room, breakfast for two and kayaks/indian canoe rental. We visited in early June, during the off-peak season. The establishment has many diverse businesses: restaurant/cafe, cottages, supermarket, petrol station, hotel/apartments, boat tours, boat taxis, equipment rental. All that an outdoors enthusiast traveller or someone stopping by for a day would need. The staff were... More

The rooms are comfortable, clean and modern and the surrounding Oravi village is lovely. The place is situated right on the shore of beautiful lake Saimaa. I would definitely go again. The place has also an restaurant that serves good food. They also organize quided tours to the lake and its islands.

Lovely modern room, ensuite bathroom, own kitchen, good quality bed and linen. Free sauna & wifi. The centre with restaurant, bar, equipment hire and supermarket is a short walk away. You can hire rowing boats or canoes to explore the 30,000 islands of Lake Saimaa. In winter there are ice skating routes on the lake. Saimaa Holiday Oravi also has... More

This was my seventh kayaking trip in Finland. Each time, I cant help my self being surprised by the over whelming kindness, politeness and hospitality of Finnish people. This was my first time using Oravi's services, though not the first time traveling in the area. We Rented 2 single kayaks for a week and stayed one night at their local... More

We made a day trip in the national park and spent the night in the hotel. The room had a quite well equipped kitchen. Since we cauth some fish and found a lot of chanterelles on the islands it felt good to be able to prepare a dinner in the room.

the courtesy of those who work here is not enough. Small cabin. Dirty floor, filthy carpet ... yellow stains on the pillows and blankets. To open the window, you must exit and go around the building!

Oravi was our basecamp for one week paddling tour in the national park Linnansaari. We started and finished our trip there and stayed in the hotel for 2 nights.Our tour was great! There is so many islands in the national park and it feels like you can loose yourself there. All camp sites have good facilities with good fire wood... More

This being the lake region in Finland, there are naturally many bugs in summer. Something as obvious as screens on the windows would have probably helped the situation here a lot. Our room had only one screen in the living room, which also had a big hole in the middle of it which let in all the bugs. Our bedroom... More

We stayed for two days for Saimaa Boating school. The point of Hotel Oravi really is to provide comfortable access to the Linnansaari national park and adjacent lake areas for fishing, canoeing, boating or trip skating in winter time. What is also nice is the location of the hotel in the traditional village. The hotel provides basic services with clean... More
