Holiday Club Katinkulta
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Vuokatti
Reviewed 10 June 2013

I take once a year a golf vacation at Holiday Club Katinkulta. The golf course was in good condition week 21 but not too crowded. The spa is the one I like the most in Finland. Other activities you can do: tennis, bowling, squash, skiing (even during summer, in the skiing tube!), hiking, swimming etc).

Room Tip: There are hotel rooms and time share apartments in separate houses in the nearby area. We had a time...

Hotel offers also spa, fitness center, indoor badminton court, bowling and water park etc. If you got bored in downhill ski, you always can find something else to do. From hotel there's direct bus to Vuokatti hills for downhill ski.

My wife and I visited here at the beginning of September for a week. The apartment was nice and on the water; the best part was that we had a sauna inside as well as a fire place. Another plus was the washing machine. On the downside, there were no beds for two (and there were 4 different rooms to sleep!) only single beds pushed together. There is a lot of hiking available, and some other interesting activities like downhill go karting, year-round XC skiing, etc. You really do need a car here if you want to do anything off of the resort. You get two bikes with the room, but that is more for fun than to get places other than the grocery store. I rented a skateboard and use the nearby park which was pretty fun. With the apartment rental, you get two bikes.

Also, on the property, there is a spa with a lot of saunas and little pools, which was very nice. The massage my wife got was okay. We also played squash, which was fairly standard. One thing to note, especially if you are there with RCI, is that the non-timeshare prices are quite expensive (25 eur for 1 hour of tennis). We were with RCI and should receive the timeshare holder price according to their policy, but they require that you have your RCI card, despite it being obvious from the booking. Some did not care, but the main lady at reception did.

Overall, a nice place, but I wouldn't say there are tons of things to do especially in the fall. I think the summer is definitely the best time to go - a lot of activities like the downhill go karting and the wakeboard park had finished by September. If you don't mind paying for each thing you do (bike rentals, spa not included, etc) excluding hiking (but even here you need a car!) and swimming, this place is great if you like nature. We are from Canada, and it looks quite similar to northern Ontario.

Room Tip: Ensure you have at least a double bed if you are a coule, and bring your RCI card to get better pric...

Quite a surprise to find such facilities in "the wilderness" in Northern Finland.
Stayed for one night on a business trip, however, would not mind spending a week holiday there.
Rooms: Spacious and clean
Service: Pleasent
Location: Nice park area
Pool area: Exotic
Probably even better in the wintertime with skiing facilities close at hand.
Conclusion: Highly recommeded

Stayed a week in one of their semidetached apartment (Hiekkaniemi). The apartment had 2 bedrooms downstairs and a big loft with beds for 2. Stairways was quite steep, so not childfriendly, thouh there was baby-doors in both ends. But our kids slept downstairs (easy access to toilet at night without scare of falling in stairs). Kitchen well equipped, modern oven and ceramic hob. Micro, coffeemaker, toaster etc. Lights were modern, with dimmer on several. Bathroom not so modern. Lighting in bathroom very bad, because the one over the mirros was "left out", perhaps cheaper this way? In the cottage (Katinkultaranta) we stayed in in 2011 the bathroom was much more modern and proper lighting. Noor the separate toilet had light over mirror. Not easy to get a good make-up done. Parking convenient as you had your parking right in front of your doorstep. Nice views over the lake from the kitchen, sittingroom and the terrace. The location of this apartment was simply the most wow-factor! Check in at reception was very average - not cheerful, not helpful and not welcoming. Same thing at check out. Only complaint was the cleaning. If they started to clean the apartments to a acceptable standard, you'd like to pay the amount they're charging. When we arrived the kitchentable was dirty from the last guests. Fridge not cleaned either. And the toilet floor in the bathroom had not been washed at all. They buy the cleaning of SOL and it obvius that they have bought too little time for cleaning of each unit. This is not the cleaningladies fault! So they are surely doing the best they can in the time they're given (paid for!!) in each unit. This is sad, because the feeling of getting a dirty apartment, is not really the best way to get guests to return.

AND the phonecalls you get on your 3rd or 4th day at the resort to come to a meeting where they try at all means to sell you a share is really to spoil the holiday. When you go on a holiday you want to relax, not to be forced to go to a marketing session. This could be easily avoided by making the frontdesk to ask at check in if the guest is interested in attending a "share buying appointment". A simple question and thats it. Stop the really manic style to try to get people to attend a selling-session!! This second time at the resort we did simply not answer to theese phone call attempts (to apartment phone and to our both mobiles).

Room Tip: Think of the location of the apartment if you like lovely views
