Haikko Manor

Porvoo, Finland

The history of the Haikko manor dates back to 1362 when a Dominican monastery owned the site. Jöns Olafsson Stenbock bought the manor and Haikko was a residence of Stenbock family for next 400 years. In 1871 it was bought by general Sebastian von Etter. Several members of the Russian Imperial family visited Haikko because von Etter was a close friend to czar Nicholas II. During the revolution in 1917 Grand Duke Kiril´s eldest son Wladimir was born and christened at Haikko. He was the nearest aspirant to the imperial crown of Russia and he became later the head of the Romanov family.

Current main building was built in 1913. The Vuoristo family purchased the manor in 1965. Today Haikko provides conference center, spa and hotel facilities.

Very nice Hotel, spa and congress Center! Old mansion and newer hotel, spa and congress building in a beautiful and peaceful place at sea shore. Surroundings are garden-like big areas along seaside. The staff is very friendly, the food in reastaurants is great and there is also a cozy and comfortable pub with nice selection of nice wines, beer etc. The rooms are nice, too. You can get different treatments f.ex. massages, mani- or pedicure or many others (f.ex. a supercold -120C cold treatment -certainly refreshing). I’ll come back for sure!).

Decent spa with 38°c bath,bubblebath,infrared room,2 types of saunas,steam room 40°c, 12°c bath and a pool with jets etc..However on sundays it closes at 8 without being informed about it(usually 11) and then it opens at 15:00 on Monday's so say goodbye to your guaranteed spa visit in the booking. The time slots cause major crowds at breakfast thus being counter productive. It feels over regulated and that takes away from the relaxation. Overall decent but not worth the price. The whole 3.50 for slippers/flip-flops that don’t fit but are required for the spa is infuriating too. The rooms are nice: heated bathroom , soft bed and all but the air vent was dusty .

?The room is fine. ?The staff is friendly. ??‍♀️The spa isn't impressive but relaxing anyway (comparing with my previous experience with Sokos). It included the pool (not so warm and comfy), the warm bath (38C), jacuzzi, sauna, aromisauna, cold bath (12C), steam room and thunder shower. You can also order drinks from bar just telling the number of your room. ?The vegan breakfast is the best we even had in hotels. It included vegan milk, cereals, bread, spread, hummus, yogurt, cheese and seitan ham. Also you can walk at the territory and enjoy the views. We borrowed toggoban slope near the restaurants. It was very nice, thank you! Request to the hotel authority: please mention that you have vegan selection. Your site says you have options for people with special dietary restrictions without specifying. Although they include gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, halal, kosher diets. So we didn't know which ones are included.

Hotel, spa and congress center. Friendly and professional service. Food in the buffet-type dinner was excellent. Modern equipment in the congress rooms.

The Spa/ swimming area is really nice , the old part has big classic/ old fashioned rooms . The Nature around the Hotel is really beautiful ( there are some MTB trails ). The food in the spa Bistro and the breakfast were not the best.

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
