Hotels, Eco Escapes & Lifestyle Resorts | Unearthing the Exceptional
Many visitors to the Netherlands never get to see the delightful capital of Friesland, Leeuwarden, instead heading straight for the islands or sticking to the more famous Amsterdam.
But that means missing out on a fascinating historical destination (the city has no less than 575 monuments as well as superb museums), beautiful public gardens, pretty winding streets, and a thriving centre packed with cafés, bars, restaurants and theatres.
Thanks to a large population of international students, Leeuwarden has a buzz and a youthful gregariousness, reflected in another of the city’s special places, the Stenden Hotel.
Welcome to Stenden Hotel, a fascinating four star property based in Europe’s 2018 Cultural Capital, Leeuwarden.
The facility is part of the Stenden Hotel Management School and is an exciting concept where young professionals are able to learn their craft in a real-world environment.
The hotel’s stance on environmental sustainability is advocated by its Gold Green Key status while all amenities are chosen for the guest’s ultimate pleasure thus allowing for beautiful harmony in consciousness and comfort.
The Restaurant Wannee is a treat where the Master Chef skilfully presents a dining experience through the 5 Principles of The Dutch Cuisine.
Meeting rooms have been recently renovated and fitted with the latest technology to allow for maximum efficiency in a professional environment. After a hard day of work retiring to the hotel rooms is a pleasure with all new “cradle to cradle” Auping beds, pillow menus and deluxe showers.
