Haikko Manor, a renowned spa hotel in Porvoo, is set to join the Lapland Hotels chain, marking an exciting development in the Finnish hospitality industry. North European Invest Oy, the owner of Finland’s largest private hotel chain, Lapland Hotels, and the Nordic region’s largest experience service company, Lapland Safaris, is in the process of acquiring the entire stock of Vuoristo-Yhtiöt Oy, the company responsible for managing Haikko Manor’s operations. This transition also involves a change in the ownership of the property company, Haikon Kartano Oy.
Established in 1966 by Satu (now Tiivola) and Leo Vuoristo, Haikko Manor holds the distinction of being Finland’s first manor hotel. It remains the largest employer in the tourism sector in eastern Uusimaa. With 211 rooms, the hotel is renowned for its diverse range of offerings, including restaurants, meeting facilities, event services, and a luxurious spa.
Importantly, despite the change in ownership, Haikko Manor’s services and activities will continue without interruption, assuring customers of the same high-quality experiences they have come to expect. The dedicated staff of Vuoristo-Yhtiöt Oy will remain in their roles.
What makes this acquisition particularly noteworthy is the common ground shared by the two Finnish family businesses involved. Both Lapland Hotels and Haikko Manor prioritize sustainability and the creation of exceptional customer experiences. North European Invest Oy is a company owned by Pertti Yliniemi and his family, while Haikko Manor is a long-standing family-owned establishment under the stewardship of Veikko Vuoristo and his family. This union represents a coming together of like-minded businesses committed to upholding these core values.
