Original Sokos Hotel Vaakuna Rovaniemi is a nominee in the World Luxury Hotel Awards-competition

Original Sokos Hotel Vaakuna Rovaniemi has again been shortlisted for an award in the World Luxury Hotel Awards competition. Vaakuna won last year in this one of the most respected competition in the world.

World Luxury Hotel Awards have been described as the Academy Awards of the hotel industry. The aim is to encourage and recognise world-class hotels that have invested in their surroundings, service selections and the quality of their services and, consequentially, taken the step from good to excellent. A luxury hotel is not satisfied offering good basic services. Rather, the standard is set clearly higher when it comes to the personalised attention paid to a customer, elements of surprise and hospitality.

The hotels entering the competition represent the very best in their business on a global scale. In the competition categories, they are assessed by country and by continent as well as globally from perspectives including innovativeness, design, restaurant selection, the quality of services and sustainability.

Every year, the World Luxury Hotels Awards ceremony includes more than 1,000 nominees selected on the basis of nominations made by customers. Customers also get to vote for the winners. In addition to votes given online, the final selection is influenced by an international panel of judges composed of travel industry professionals. The members of the panel stay at the hotels either officially or as "mystery guests" before the final selections.
