CELEBRATE, MEET, CONNECT
A green oasis. Calm.
In Antwerp’s bustling centre
Antwerp. A city of diversity. Known worldwide for its diamond district. Capital of avant-garde fashion. Rich in deep-rooted cultural and historical institutions. Crowned by a remarkable landmark property: A Leading Hotel of the World. A cosmopolitan and social spotlight.
What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare… step out of Antwerp’s urban fashion hub into monastic tranquillity: enter a world of luxury, where craftsmanship, innovation and ecology meet tradition. And a botanical garden offers refuge.
