The epic two-night package also includes exclusive artwork, a 40-year-old rare scotch and a custom couture look
The iconic De L’Europe Amsterdam has been a part of the Dutch city’s landscape since its opening in September 1896, making it one of the metropolis’s oldest luxury hotels. Now the famed establishment is celebrating its 125th anniversary with an over-the-top package priced at a cool US$1.3 million.
The new bundle allows one guest to live it up in Netherlands’ capital, with a complete buy-out of the 106-room 5-star hotel—including all its contemporary suites—so you can have the property all to yourself. If you’re in the mood for some company, you have the option to arrange a guest list of 212 lucky friends to join in on the epic two-night extravaganza, which has a fully stocked itinerary. The theme for one of your evenings, for example, will be the Garden of Eden, a uniquely immersive experience designed in collaboration with florist Wunderkammer, which will deliver lush greenery with Dutch flowers and exotic flora to the property.
For the morning after, breakfast can either be served as an in-room meal or be enjoyed with a trip to the on-site brasserie Marie for international fare. At dinnertime, you’ll be feasting at one of the property’s other eateries and bars, such as Freddy’s, Trattoria Graziella and the Michelin two-star Flore. When you’re looking to wind down after a meal, sneak away to the hotel’s Le Spa by Skins Institute, available to you throughout your stay.
Outside the meals and accommodations, the package includes plenty of one-of-a-kind experiences, such as creating your own personal fragrance with Salle Privée, receiving a unique 18k yellow-gold and sterling-silver tulip ring from renowned Dutch jeweller Bibi van der Velden and partaking in a branding consultation with Valerie van der Werff, the former lifestyle director of Vogue. Cap off your luxurious stay with an extravagant party that commemorates the hotel’s special anniversary.
If that soirée and the luxe itinerary aren’t enough, you’ll find the swag bag to be equally as lavish as the hotel’s amenities. You’ll be heading home with a piece of artwork from the Ravestijn Gallery, a rare Ferrari collector’s edition book (one of only 250 copies) from the on-site shop and a bespoke couture look from European label RVDK. Plus, you can expand your spirits collection with a 40-year-old single malt scotch whisky from Bowmore. For women, the package includes an exclusive invitation to become a member of the Harper’s Bazaar Business Club, which consists of a lunch and a workshop with designer stylist Danie Bles for up to 10 guests—and you get take home a vintage high-end fashion piece for your wardrobe.
“At the De L’Europe Amsterdam, we aim to help create stories and lifelong memories with all our guests. We are proud to have been a welcoming destination for elegance and exploration in Amsterdam for over 125 years,” Robert-Jan Woltering, managing director of De L’Europe Amsterdam, said in a statement. “This package is a true celebration of the hotel’s five-star offerings from top-to-bottom including our signature suites, award-winning culinary offerings, a luxurious spa, and much more. Whoever books this package is sure to have an unforgettable story to tell after their stay—and we could not be more excited to welcome them.”
The exclusive package is available now through June 30, 2023.
