PEACE AND SPACE
The recently renovated hotel focuses on the beach and sea. From the dune top where the hotel is located, you have a beautiful view, made possible by the large glass windows in common areas such as the restaurant, swimming pool, and spa. A large number of rooms and suites also have ocean views.
The vast, gently sloping beaches of fine sand are special in every season. Bordered on one side by the sea and picturesque skies, on the other by wide dunes with a dune boulevard of cycling- and footpaths. In summer you can enjoy the sun and sea here, in winter the beach is perfect for getting a breath of fresh air during a brisk walk. Afterward you can relax on the terrace or in the brasserie of the hotel with a good glass of wine and a panoramic view of the wide beaches.
Healthy for body and spirit.

The beach and ocean also invite you to be active. The possibilities are endless and grateful use is made of the sea and dunes, beach and hinterland.
