Vesper Hotel Wants to Take Boutique to a Dutch Beach
Just a few weeks ago, over 50 world leaders descended on the Netherlands (the Hague, to be more precise) for the 2014 Nuclear Security Summit. The long list of world leaders included President Obama, who brought the beachside village of Noordwijk aan Zee to a near complete halt when he stayed the night at Huis ter Duin, a chique, but rather old-school, Grand Hotel right on the beachfront.
Had the summit been a little later in the year, and President Obama been in the mood for something a bit more youthful and design-forward, he would have had the option of staying at the Vesper Hotel, opening this summer on the same boulevard, billing itself as the first boutique hotel on the Dutch coast.
Taking over the former Hotel Clarenwijck, Vesper promises rain showers with sunset views over the North Sea and individually-designed rooms, some even with their own sauna. The corner room in the rendering above does look breezy with mostly white and off-white contrasting with the occasional red – and we do hope those are hardwood floors we see.
What material we have on the hotel talks about how it will make us feel, and that we will never forget that feeling, but details on how many rooms there are, what the restaurant / bar will be like (the above is a shot of the lobby), and an indication of nightly rates when doors open in June, are still a question mark. We’ll let you know when we find out.
