Spa Hotel Levitunturi seems to be the biggest hotel in Levi, and caters for everything you need. We booked 22-29 December 2013, we stayed in the Onus Rooms which are classed as the superior. The room was a really nice surprise and exceeded our initial expectations, it had a contemporary feel. The bathroom was modern, the main bedroom was well furnished with a flat screen TV, mini bar, a clothes drier. Outside we had a balcony overlooking the spa and Levi.
The hotel itself contains a well equipped gym which is accessed via your room key. The Spa was fully booked so it is advisable to book well ahead, even before you travel. The pool area consisted of many areas on a two or three levels, the outside Jacuzzi's were good fun, especially if its snowing.
Food and Drink, We booked half board. I can see why some reviews find the restaurant a little dreary, however, the nature of the holiday means that its never going to be fine dining, and with most people wearing snow gear, its understandable the decor is not 'dreary' but functional. The food, which is buffet style offers good choice and the quality is good. There is also a dedicated, albeit small area which caters for kids should they not want anything from the main buffet, typically pizza, chips nuggets etc. Dinner is served 5pm - 8pm. We ate lunch when we arrived on the first day, and found this to be really expensive, there are a number of different places to eat in the resort and also in the hotels sports bar, if you are hungry after travelling, I wouldn't suggest lunch in the main restaurant purely based on price.
There are a few bar's in the hotel, one is a sports bar which also has a bowling alley (probably 10 lanes), good fun, but a little pricey at 32 Euro per hour. The sports bar also has arcade machines, pool tables etc. As a tip, there is a supermarket about 10 minutes walk that has a separate area cal Alko - which sells alcohol above 7% proof and works out really cost effective compared with hotel and mini bar prices. Its worth a walk to pick up some beers wines and / or spirits.
Trips and activities - we booked four things, husky sledding, reindeer sledding, snow mobiles (night time) and an overnight in the Glass Igloo (try to book the ones operated by Crown). There are options on the sledding trips, 'Standard' and 'Super'. The standard is just too short, we opted for the 8k Husky Sledding and wished it was longer. If you can only fit in one, it would need to be the Husky. Aside from the trips, we also booked private skiing lessons, this was 72 euros for one, and then 28 euro for an additional person. This was organise at Zero Point in Levi, we hired our stuff, the staff were really keen to advise and help. There are a number of ski rental shops around the resort, all with different offers on pricing. We also opted to walk up to the Panorama Hotel, which is situated towards the top of the main slope.
Eating out - Levi itself has many bars and restaurants to choose from, a favourite was Narran, which is just across the road from the hotel the Reindeer Wrap was fantastic, another was Renna which offers pasta and excellent pizza. There are a number of other restaurants in the resort, including Italian, Sushi, Chinese, Indian.
We travelled as a couple and loved every second of our trip, the hotel and its facilities added to our experience.
