EUROPE'S BEST SUSTAINABLE HOTEL COMES FROM FINLAND
Industry: Travel Awards       

Haltia Lake Lodge from Finland was named Best Sustainable Hotel in Europe at the World Boutique Hotel Awards in London

(TRAVPR.COM) FINLAND - November 11th, 2022 - Haltia Lake Lodge located at the heart of Nuuksio National Park next to Helsinki, Finland received an award at The World Boutique Hotel Awards in London on Tuesday 8 November. The hotel received the award as Best Sustainable Hotel in Europe.

Judges applauded Haltia Lake Lodge for its beautiful natural setting and thoughtfully sustainable approach. Once a council dormitory building, the Lodge itself has been transformed into a luxurious sanctuary in the tranquil Finnish forest.

Sustainability and eco-friendly practices are at the core of Haltia Lake Lodge. The importance of recycling was heavily promoted – from the building itself all the way down to the cutlery.

“Locally sourced produce such as elk, rainbow trout and good quality beers were served in the restaurant, integrating us further into the Nordic lifestyle.”

‘We’re extremely proud to receive the award. Our team has worked consistently towards reaching the highest sustainability standards. We are truly grateful to our team who do their utmost to provide high-standard services as well as sharing our system of values of preserving Northern nature for future generations’, stated CEO and co-founder Teemu Tuomarla.

Haltia Lake Lodge was co-founded by five Finns whose mission was to build a lodge with sustainability at its core. The lodge, once used as dormitories for the local council, has been completely repurposed into a place for an ideal getaway.

Set amongst Nuuksio National Park, Haltia Lake Lodge is surrounded by natural beauty. It has somehow managed to find the perfect balance between offering convenient accommodation and providing a sanctuary where one can escape from the crazy world that exists beyond the forest.

BACKGROUND ON THE AWARDS

The Boutique Hotel Awards is the first and only international awards organisation exclusively dedicated to recognising unique excellence among boutique hotels. The Awards, now in its 12th year, honours the people behind these outstanding properties and brings together members of The Master Key Society, where relationships are built exclusively among the Award Winners by facilitating hotel exchange visits between them.

AWARDS PROCESS

The hotels and private villas are tried and tested, giving our judges first-hand experience of what makes them special. It is the only independent awards organisation in hospitality where each and every property is visited personally by an experienced hotel judge, who specialises in each category, and where decisions on winners depend on true guest experience at the property.

The winners were selected from over 250 Nominees in over 70 countries. Covid has proved an enormous challenge to this process, but despite the shifting sands and moving goalposts of government restrictions, we have managed to travel the globe to review each hotel and villa. Entrants are nominated each year by a member of the Awards Nomination Committee, comprising 30 leading travel experts, whose business it is to be ‘in-the-know’ concerning the extraordinary boutique hotels. The Awards then coordinate judge evaluation visits with each shortlisted nominee. The judges document all aspects of the guest experience covering elements of dining, design, concept, facilities, location, service and, most importantly, emotional impact. Finally, these extensive hand-written evaluations are meticulously studied by our Awards Panel, which decides our regional and World’s Best Award winners.
