With spring in full bloom after The Netherlands’ cold and frosty winter, in celebration of its 5th year anniversary Conservatorium will reveal its own variety of tulips that were grown on the estate. Amsterdam’s leading luxury lifestyle palace, located in the heart of the city, will be dressed with over 1,000 of its bespoke tulips in celebration of the annual Tulip Festival.
With a nod to the country’s national flower, the Conservatorium hotel will be offering guests a special ‘Conservatorium In Bloom’ Package, with the chance to wholeheartedly enjoy the flower festivities. The package includes a private driver who will take you on an exclusive journey to the grounds of a tulip farmer for a unique introduction to this beautiful craft and the cultivation of tulips. You will get the chance to learn the fascinating history of this craft and visit places where the first Dutch tulips are grown.
In addition to the visit, two entrance tickets to Keukenhof – Amsterdam’s famous flower garden – are included. Visitors can enjoy 7 million spring-flowering tulips from the 500 different flower cultivators who grow their flowers in the park. Opened in 1950, the park has welcomed millions of visitors over the years, with different themes to the gardens each year. In 2017, Keukenhof will be celebrating its 68th spring to the theme of Dutch Design. Two hours of personal photography within the tulip fields is available for an additional supplement of €275.00.
The package also includes a two night’s accommodation in one of the hotel’s luxury guestrooms, with exquisite design and bespoke furnishings by PieroLissoni, along with flat screens televisions, high speed internet, 100% cotton bed linen, towels and designer bathroom products.
Finally, each guest will be given a tulip cake, specially prepared by the Conservatorium, along with a glass of sparkling wine to be enjoyed in the Lounge, amongst the huge bouquets of flowers. Our house florist Menno Kroon will build a pop-up flower station in the courtyard to create enticing tulip bouquets.
