In addition to the amenities within the building, there’s a laundrette, off licence and café next door. Half board meals are taken at the Colorado and Villisika restaurants, only a 2 minute walk away. The Colorado is also the closest, and one of the best, places to grab a drink and shoot some pool.
Situated in the centre of the village, just steps to the lifts and a short bus journey to the ski school meeting place, the Ruka Suites are a great choice for both families and groups.
The suites themselves are modern, clean and cosy. Most of them also have fantastic views of the village, slopes or snowy woodland. Key code entry means you don’t have to worry about losing or sharing physical keys. Plus, all the rooms come with private saunas for après relaxation and drying cabinets to warm your gear ready for the next day’s skiing.
The kitchenettes are handy for home cooking - especially if you go for a larger G2 apartment which comes with an oven. If you do fancy eating out one evening, there’s plenty of restaurants within a few minutes' walk.
You don’t even have to leave the building for many amenities - simply nip downstairs for the supermarket, kindergarten and sandwich place. You’ll also find free ski lockers, a bowling alley and an adventure play area on-site - what more could you ask for?
