Luxury hotel brand Anantara has made its debut in the Netherlands with the opening of Anantara Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky Amsterdam.
Located in the city centre and with more than 155 years of history, the much-loved property is in the final stage of an extensive renovation as part of its transition to the luxury Anantara brand and now offers new contemporary guest rooms and suites, a brand-new Anantara Spa and fitness facilities, and a charming interior garden.
Anantara Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky Amsterdam is located overlooking Dam Square and facing the Royal Palace, with the museum quarter, which includes Anne Frank House, Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum, as well as the capital’s prime shopping district, within walking distance.
The 402-room property can host a range of meetings, events and celebrations for 10 to 1,500 guests, with spaces including The Wintergarden, a 19th century glass covered inner garden complete with glass roof.
The hotel’s refurbished rooms and suites embrace guests in contemporary style with Anantara signature touches, whilst celebrating Dutch heritage and the famous canals.
Dining experiences at the hotel include fine-dining restaurant The White Room, under the helm of former three-Michelin star chef Jacob Jan Boerma, whose refined, modern dishes use the freshest local ingredients from the Netherlands.
Grand Café Krasnapolsky and The Champagne Room, both boasting direct frontage onto Dam Square, offer classic, elegant dishes with a contemporary twist, alongside an extensive selection of Champagnes by the glass. Award-winning bar, The Tailor pays tribute to the hotel’s founder– Polish tailor, Mr. Adolph Wilhelm Krasnapolsky – with bespoke cocktails amidst warm décor.
The hotel team has created a programme of local experiences that enable guests to fully immerse themselves in the city’s rich culture, celebrating the destination with the added touch of Anantara’s legendary service. Whether it be uncovering Amsterdam’s best kept culinary hideaways – from dining in the Royal Suite, overlooking the historic centre – or exploring the wonderful fishing village of Volendam.
Guests can cruise the city’s canals whilst indulging in a romantic dinner curated by The White Room, cycle the waterways lined with the traditional gabled canal houses, hop around world-class museums with an Anantara expert or enjoy a culinary journey, sampling apple pie or stroopwafel in one of the oldest bars in town, bitterballen (round croquettes), a variety of national cheeses paired with artisan beers or a Jenever from one of Amsterdam’s oldest distilleries.
