Ruissalo Spa safety procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic

During the pandemic, Ruissalo Spa serves you according to the government and health authorities’ guidelines and recommendations. For the safety of our customers and staff, our staff members wear masks or visors whenever safe distances (min. 2 metres) cannot be guaranteed. 

We strive to make sure that our guests stay safe and can enjoy their visit to the fullest.


Here is how we keep our guests safe during the pandemic:

General Guidelines

  • Please do not visit us if you have any flu-like symptoms.
  • Please take care of your personal hygiene – wash your hands and be mindful of how you cough/sneeze.
  • Please keep a safe distance from other guests and staff (at least 2 metres/5 feet).
  • Please use a mask when moving in the common areas.
  • If at anytime during your visit you think you might have contracted the coronavirus (if you have symptoms or have been exposed to the virus), please interrupt your stay and get in touch with either the closest health centre, or contact the coronavirus helpline (in Turku area tel. +358 (0)2 3138800).
  • Please follow the current quarantine regulations if you have travelled outside of Finland prior to your stay at the spa. We also check with our guests from other countries that proper quarantine procedures have been followed before they arrive at the spa.

Cleaning and Sanitizing

  • Surfaces in the common areas, such as elevator buttons, railings, door handles, desks and payment terminals are also cleaned more frequently.
  • Hand sanitizer is available for guests throughout the spa hotel.
  • We try to limit unnecessary contact between our customers and staff. If you stay with us lasts longer than a day and you wish your room to be cleaned during your stay, please contact the reception.


  • Please keep a safe distance from other guests and staff while checking in or otherwise interacting with the receptionists.
  • Instructions and other information is available at the notice boards.
  • Please pay with card instead of cash whenever possible.

However, it is recommended to keep a safe distance of at least 1 meter (3,5 feet) while swimming or in other pool areas, and to make sure you wash your hands often. Please avoid crowded areas.
