Design Hotel Levi is a new luxury design hotel opening in the village of Levi in Finnish Lapland this winter.
The £10 million project will see the largest hotel project in the Arctic region open in December which will have a particular focus on Nordic art and design.
The hotel is being built adjacent to its sister hotel, Levi Hotel and Spa and will offer 77 rooms and suites which aim to combine Arctic nature into the design in a unique way. Rooms start from €290 per night B&B.
The hotel will cater for couples, groups and families alike, those looking for luxury accomodation with a convenient central location for access to the Levi village and all its amenities as well as the area’s first class ski slopes and year round outdoors activities.
Sanna Leinonen, CEO of Levi Hotel Spa Resort explains; ”We wanted to create something new and thrilling for the area. A hotel which really stands out from what the region already offers; in total contrast to the lodge style accomodation you traditionally find in this area,”
Working with architect Pave Mikkonen the new hotel will offer a genuine experience of Arctic art and design. The ’hip’ roof blends into the fell highland landscape with the exterior built of greying Lapland pinewood and a reception area of natural stone. The colours and materials used will include locally sourced wood, natural stone and copper.
The design detail focuses on contemporary, authentic Finnish design with artwork for both the hotel and restaurants coming from acclaimed artists working in the area including the sculptor Essi Korva and photographer Kaisa Sirén. For example Kaisa’s giant, abstract photography will be used as murials, partitions and shower walls.
Location and Dining Options
The new hotel is located at the foot of Levi Ski Resort slopes, right in the heart of Levi Village with guests having direct access to sister hotel Levi Hotel Spa Resort's spa, choice of restaurants and other extensive facilities including the Waterworld.
Guests will have access to the fine dining restaurant Kekäle serving breakfast and dinner which will offer an impressive open charcoal kitchen offering quality, seasonal Arctic flavors. In addition, a choice of three other resturants are available including a Pizza resturant as well as the Joiku music bar.
