Finnish dairy cooperative Valio and hotel Klaus K Helsinki have opened an ice cream-themed hotel room, the first of its kind in the world.

The ice cream suite has been named the Sweet Suite, and it is available for reservation from March to September. It is located at the heart of Helsinki. Interior design was provided by interior designers Anna Pirkola and Kirsikka Simberg.

The Valio Jäätelöfabriikki Sweet Suite, named after Valio’s ice cream brand, includes all-you-can-eat ice cream.

Valio said Helsinki is a natural choice for an ice cream-themed suite, as Finns consume the most ice cream in Europe per capita.

Valio’s ice cream business manager Tea Ijäs, said, “Valio Jäätelöfabriikki aims to make you happy. To many, ice cream is a break from the daily grind. We wanted to create a small, surprising experience around delicious ice cream.”

New flavors

Last year, Valio returned to the Finnish ice cream shelves after a 14-year break.

The ice cream factory, at the Oulu plant, makes the only entirely Finnish, entirely lactose-free family of ice creams.

This spring, Valio is introducing four new flavors in Finland: chocolate, lemon curd, passion fruit-coconut, and apple-oat pie.
