The Vibe: Natural.
The Area: Located among the dunes of North Holland’s Castricum beach, some 40 minutes northwest of Amsterdam.
The DNA: Opening the Zoomers Beach Pavilion back in 2007, the bar and restaurant is a draw for locals and travellers in the know, each flocking to devour honest, local products and a good glass of wine. It seemed natural to eventually offer accommodation for those wanting to stay overnight or longer, and undeterred the Strandhotel Zoomers was created. Simple and pure with beautiful nuances in colours that draw guests closer to the nature that surrounds them, the outside of the building reflects the inside; its interiors a mixture of natural and raw materials.
Suite-Me-Up: Boasting either dune or sea views, and within walking distance of the beach, rooms have been styled by The Other Season and feature elegant linens, chic ceramics, a small terrace and kitchenette, alongside bespoke items that can be bought in the hotel’s beach shop.
