At Your Service

We want to offer you an unforgettable stay in the midst of peace and quiet. 

Story of Kuru Resort

We live in a world where a full calendar, a phone with non-stop notifications and a constant rush are part of our everyday life. In the middle of this flood of information and stimuli both the mind and the body are under a lot of stress. And to reverse this, we need a place free of any demands or obligations.

We want to offer our guests an unique luxury experience and an optimum setting to letting go. Prestige premises are combined with astonishing Finnish nature, as the healing power of nature has been shown in several studies the past years. Kuru is located in the midst of a beautiful pine forest by an amazing lake. Nature can be experienced everywhere in Kuru, also indoors thanks to a wall size windows in all building.

Kuru is gentle and slow. We offer a place to rewind and be lazy. Every small detail in the resort is designed to help you calm down and relax – the smells, the music, and the materials included.

In Kuru you don’t need to do anything. Being lazy is the most important activity of your vacation. To support your recovery we offer daily relaxation activities that are included to the room price. Gorgeous Kuru Spa offers a variety of indulging treatments to our guests wishing for extra pampering.


We are excited to invite you to an unforgettable stay at Kuru Resort. Your visit is uniquely created based on your preferences to make your stay relaxing and uplifting.

CEO / Partner

Tiina Seppänen

Kuru Resort’s CEO Tiina Seppänen has returned to her region of birth to run the resort that is a dream come true for her. Tiina loves nature and is proud to present the beauty of her home region to visitors of Kuru. Nature gives Tiina a place to relax in the midst of a hectic life and she seeks to spend time outdoors everyday. She even chooses to commute in a non-traditional way to spend that time outdoors – in winter she uses a snowmobile and in summer a boat.

Tiina knows the struggle with letting go of the demands of the everyday life. That is why she wants to offer Kuru’s visitors a place to completely tune off and relax. Her personal goal is that every single guest feels as pampered as possible. Tiina believes that by decreasing the amount of stimuli in a surrounding that is both luxurious as well as grounding it is possible to completely slow down and recover.

To Tiina, it is important to create an atmosphere where everyone feels welcomed. Authenticity and people-orientation are the keywords in Kuru’s operations. Kuru’s team is ready to go the extra mile to ensure that every guest feels relaxed and genuinely happy after their vacation. Tiina emphasizes the individual tailoring of the vacation:

“One relaxes on a snowmobile safari and the other may need a total rest wrapped in a bathrobe in the privacy of their own villa. Our job is to clarify these needs as well as possible in advance and make an unforgettable holiday come true”, Tiina says.
