Anantara Hotels, Resorts and Spas will bring its experiential luxury to the Netherlands with the upcoming opening of Anantara Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky Amsterdam.
Located in the city centre and with more than 155 years of history, the property is in the final stage of an extensive renovation as part of its transition to the luxury Anantara brand. After the rebranding, the hotel will offer new contemporary guest rooms and suites, a brand-new Anantara Spa and fitness facilities, and an interior garden.
Anantara Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky Amsterdam is located overlooking Dam Square and facing the Royal Palace, not far from the museum quarter, which includes Anne Frank House, Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum.
The new hotel takes place in a building dating back to 1856, the year that a Polish tailor, Adolph Wilhelm Krasnapolsky, first opened a coffee house on the site. As the café grew in popularity, he added rooms for rent and later built it into a modern hotel. With its celebration of historical heritage and contemporary luxury, the 402-room hotel is an enviable base for both business and leisure travellers.
The hotel’s refurbished rooms and suites feature contemporary style with Anantara signature touches, whilst celebrating Dutch heritage and the famous canals. Furthermore, guests can sleep in the Presidential Suite as well as the Royal Suite, which offers views on Dam Square and the National Royal Palace.
F&B experiences at the hotel include fine-dining restaurant The White Room, under the helm of former three-Michelin star chef Jacob Jan Boerma, serves modern dishes using the freshest local ingredients from the Netherlands. Grand Café Krasnapolsky and The Champagne Room, both boasting direct frontage onto Dam Square, offer classic dishes with a contemporary twist. Awardwinning bar, The Tailor pays tribute to the hotel’s founder and craft.
In keeping with Anantara’s wellness philosophies, the newly added Anantara Spa offers Swissline, a results-driven brand found exclusively in Amsterdam at Anantara. In addition, the spa works with Dutch brand hannah. Furthermore, guests can enjoy three treatment rooms and Finnish, wet and infrared saunas. The hotel also features a gym area.
Anantara debuted in Europe in 2017 with the launch of Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort in Portugal, followed by Anantara Villa Padierna Palace Resort in Marbella, Southern Spain. The brand continues its expansion in Europe in iconic properties such as Anantara Palazzo Naiadi Rome and Anantara New York Palace Budapest, with additional properties to come.
