“Savutuvan Apaja was unknown to me from before. As we were mapping out convenient celebration venues for our most important international guests in the Jyväskylä area, Savutuvan Apaja was recommended to us by a local taxi driver.
We tested the suitability of the place with the help of local colleagues and the feedback from them was so positive that the choice was clear. The event as a whole was outstanding and everything on behalf of Savutuvan Apaja was excellent.
Arriving at Apaja with a charter boat was a great experience for our guests and food and service on location functioned flawlessly, the main dining hall Kalliosali and the atmosphere of the place impressed. Now that Savutuvan Apaja is known to me, I can warmly recommend the venue for large scale corporate events as well.”

“The strengths of Savutuvan Apaja are a tranquil, atmospheric surrounding, beautiful setting and super good local food – the place offers an experience to all senses!
The chain of service works from the attention given to groups’ special wishes during the time of reservation, to the friendly and stylish implementation, the entire staff is engaged from the beginning.
Guests’ expectations are exceeded repeatedly and in bringing groups of conference dinner guests to you repeatedly, I am always delighted how effortlessly and to perfection everything pans out on your part.
Highly recommended! “

“I have been a guest to many events at Apaja. The venue and setting are excellent for a variety of events.

“Savutuvan Apaja was the perfect choice to arrange our day event on the 1st of December. The event was a success above expectations and we received only positive feedback from participants.
Kalliosali, the main dining hall, was exactly right in size for a meeting of 45 participants. There was plenty of parking space right outside the venue. It was nice to hear people discussing the lovely setting of the meeting venue.
16 presentations took place in our event, in a relaxed atmosphere. AV arrangements worked fine and no microphone was needed even for quiet speakers.
Catering included morning coffee with carnelian pies, lunch from the buffet and coffee at the end of the day. The lunch received a lot of praise. “The best horsebean patty ever” was said as a comment for the kitchen by a financing partner of our project.
Well before the event, we visited Savutuvan Apaja and were presented with the variety of meeting options available. We proposed wishes for the lunch menu and the wishes were met exceptionally well, different and very tasty sources of protein were a part of the buffet table. All that was missing were insects! I warmly recommend Savutuvan Apaja as venue for meetings, concerning price and value from my own experience.”

“The food was good and so was the service. The staff is professional and shared stories of the place’s history during our welcoming drinks.
We spent the last part of the evening at the Torppa saunas that were great. All in all a glorious mileu and a successful evening.”
