Signet Botanic Sanctuary Antwerp

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.

A hidden gem

In Antwerp’s Botanical Garden

A landmark property is underway to restore and revitalise an ancient listed monastery. The interior design preserves the original while indulging in sumptuous finishes. Spread across a 20,000sqm site, this highly anticipated luxury retreat brings together a sense of history with contemporary sensibilities – turning experiences into memories.

Imbued with a laid-back spirit, it’s a destination with extraordinary fine dining, honest Belgian cuisine, a ground-breaking spa, conference hub, wedding venue, hotspot for celebrations and the ultimate in luxury and lifestyle shopping – but most of all: it’s the Botanic Sanctuary.

Star-Gazing Gastronomy

The revival of Hertog Jan

Gert de Mangeleer and Joachim Boudens

Chef Gert de Mangeleer and consummate service professional Joachim Boudens bring their mastery to Antwerp: the gastronomic partnership that led to three Michelin stars at the original Hertog Jan revives its culinary concept at the Botanic. A hub of innovative gastronomy, Hertog Jan recreates the West Flemish garden experience in an intimate setting with its own glasshouse, beehives and herb garden. Gert earned his third Michelin star in 2012, and has worked with some of the world’s most illustrious gastronomic names. Joachim is the front-of-house man, the people-person and organiser who perfectly complements Gert the creator. Their motto: ‘Simplicity isn’t simple’.

Another Bar Bulot in Belgium

Gert de Mangeleer and Joachim Boudens

Yet another masterpiece by the delectable duo, the sister restaurant to Bar Bulot by Hertog Jan*** in Bruges offers traditional Belgian and French cuisine. Starting life as a seafood-only pop-up in the summer of 2019, today it is a fully fledged, à la carte brasserie. Gert and Joachim combine their passion, knowledge and experience with the best ingredients and hassle-free hospitality. Stylish and welcoming, Bar Bulot is the culinary hotspot where everything is possible, from business meetings and family get-togethers to romantic dinners for two and a fun night out with chums. The menu offers fish, seafood and meaty classics such as steak tartare – as well as some very tasty wines to accompany them!

Fine Fleur

Jacob Jan Boerma & Thomas Diepersloot*

Two chefs from Michelin-starred restaurants join forces at the Botanic to generate zen-like balance. Jacob Jan Boerma has been in the business for 30 years, and his signature dishes – using citrus, acidity, herbs, spices and vegetables – are famous all over the world. The De Leest in Vaassen earned three Michelin stars thanks to his creative talent and deep love of seasonal and regional products. This is a passion he shares with Thomas Diepersloot who hails from Michelin-starred Restaurant Voltaire, having previously worked with many world-renowned chefs. When they met, they clicked straight away, and at the Fine Fleur they will be creating the ‘wow’ factor that only the finest cuisine can offer.

The Botanic Restaurant

Wouter Van Tichelen

Educated by a former three-star-chef in Belgium, Wouter Van Tichelen opens the Botanic’s authentic Belgian restaurant offering an exceptional atmosphere as well as the freshest ingredients, cooked to perfection. Each dish provides a classic taste of Belgian cuisine, but with an interpretation that is entirely his own. The Botanic Restaurant nestles in an unparalleled setting in the conservatory of the Monastery Garden. Its historical wine cellar houses three compartiments and offers an intimate venue for private dinners, tastings, aperitifs and whisky or wine club meetings. Antwerp residents know Wouter van Tichelen from the 1 Michelin star restaurant De Koopvaardij.

Botanic Sanctuary

A place of repose

The 5-star superior Leading Hotel of the World is being carved out of a 15th century monastery. The sensitive restoration project has stripped away the fripperies of times past to reveal ancient stonework and structures. The 109 rooms and suites – each one unique – reflect the historic style and significance of the complex. At the same time, they exude timeless luxury brought about by a wabi-sabi approach to interior design: serene, beautiful and spiritual. They do have one thing in common – all offer welcoming green views away from the city’s hustle and bustle. A place of rest in the heart of Belgium’s most populous city. Truly a sanctuary.
