Hark back to the lavish Dutch Golden Age in a luxury hotel in the Netherlands with Small Luxury Hotels of the World. The lush landscape with its windmills, dykes and canals inspired Van Gogh, Rembrandt and Vermeer.
Luxury city breaks in the Netherlands
Pause for Douwe Egberts coffee and sticky vlaai fruit pie in Maastricht as you saunter between upmarket boutiques in the exclusive Stokstraatk quarter’s narrow lanes. In Amsterdam, trace the prosperous 17th-century Golden Age which inspired the masterpieces by Frans Hals and Rembrandt hanging in the Rijksmuseum and van Campen’s classical Royal Palace. Book your luxury hotel in the Netherlands in February when the ATP World Tour serves aces in the dynamic port city of Rotterdam.
Luxury beach holidays in the Netherlands
Stroll along miles of sun-kissed sand dunes on Zeeland’s untouched beaches. The vast North Sea and cosmopolitan Scheveningen Beach promenade are the backdrop for abstract artworks at the Sculpture at Sea Museum in The Hague. Lounge on giant luxury beanbags or hammocks with cocktails on Amsterdam’s hip city beaches, like Strand West Beach, overlooking tranquil IJmeer Lake.
Luxury retreats in the Dutch countryside
Cross dykes and ditches by bicycle on the marshy polders along the Amstel River’s course from Amsterdam. The sleepy canals splicing the Delft region inspired Vermeer’s landscape paintings and traditional blue and white tin-glazed pottery. Close your luxury hotel in Maastricht near dusty windmills and subterranean grottoes, which punctuate the infinite planes of cornfields.
Choose a boutique hotel in the Netherlands with Small Luxury Hotels of the World and immerse yourself in Batavian splendour. Michelin-starred dishes are served in an elegant 17th century theatre on the pretty Keizersgracht Canal in Amsterdam and baroque parkland encircles a gentrified country estate in Maastricht.
