The hotel itself
>Is within a village and so there's a skating rink, theatre, shopping stores, and bonfire. This place would be even more perfect during Christmas season (like those you see in movies)!
>There were alot of activities in this place EVERYDAY (see pictures) In addition to hotel amenities such as skating, skiing, gondola, etc. the later were closed since we went there during low season and there was no snow (not sure about the activities) however, it was still perfect because we get to enjoy the place on our own and entire community is quiet!
>The gym seems like it is open 24 hours and there were alot of equipments. Has a sauna, locker, spacious bathroom, steam room, towels, water, headphones, billards, and foosball table.
>Swimming pool (heated), multiple jacuzzi and bonfires spread around the hotel. Beautiful trees and views.

Our room, 3302.
>It had a fully equipped kitchen (kitchen utensils, cutlery, baking equipment, etc), had washer and dryer (great when you swim and does not want to pack dirty or wet clothes!), and EACH ROOM HAD A FIREPLACE! (our room, 2 king and 1 sofa bed, had a total of 4 fireplace). Everything was clean from the bathroom to the floors). The comforters, bed, and towels were soft and had a luxurious feel.
> We requested the higher floor room, room with great views, and in the newer building. All of these were granted (not sure about the newer building request but everything sure does look new!). The views are stunning and so picturesque. You can see trees everywhere and as far as you can see.

Other info:
>lowest temperature: -4 Celcius
>So far, i think this was the best hotel i've ever stayed at. Will definitely love to comeback since we did not get to explore the place fully.

Wonderful resort

We came down for a few nights stay and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. If you get a chance to stay during the summer or winter, it is worth it. There was plenty of local happenings to keep anyone occupied. Enjoy your stay.

When hotel and nature are a must.

We had a suite that was just gorgeous. 2 rooms, a den, 2 bathrooms and even a laundry room! 6 People had a very good sleep. And fire places in every room! Since it was nippy, they were really useful. I have to say that I was jealous...this suite had a better kitchen than my house! All the amenities for a long stay. There were activities for all ages. The kids even had a ice-cream decoration class, but it wasn't as well prepared, had to wait for the person responsible of the activity to come. Was not so exciting after all they said. The pool is just wonderful. Nothing in the hotel is out of date or neglected. All is in very good taste. There was a big down: all the boutiques were close except Löle (- a sport clothing store -I think) So this area was rather barren. Summer isn't the High Season for sure. The parking is a tad complicated. But once you get your bearings it all pans out. All in all, Nature at it's best, Lodgings for a King and Queen and very pleased children! Perfect all the way!
