The story of Watertoren Duin & Bosch

Watertoren historie

The historical Watertower stands on the grounds of 'Duin & Bosch'. In 1904 a hospital was build on these grounds, commissioned by the Provincial Council of North Holland. To make this possible, in 1903 the state had to buy 80 acres of dunereserve from her Royal Highness Princes Zu Wied (1841 - 1910), granddaugther of King Willem I.

The former State Hospital Duin & Bosch had its own drinkingwater facility. That is the Watertower you'll be sleeping in, what a unique experience! The dunewater was pumped from deep pitts, after that it was filtered and de-ironized before it got temporarily stored in a waterbassin. After that it was pumped into the Watertower, which was completed in 1908.

At the end of the seventies, all buildings on the terrain got connected to the regional water supply network so the Watertower lost its original function.

Years later plans for a restauration of the abandoned tower came to life and it got turned into a unique boutique hotel with one room and panoramic view. The luxurious hotelsuite with 'floating loft' as a bedroom is located in the original waterreserve of the state monument. The complete roof was lifted and windows were added to assure extra daylight. From the comfortable bed guests have a fantastic 360 view on the surroundings. Perfect for a special getaway and romantic night such as a honeymoon!

Just behind the Watertower our neighbor and partner 'De Oude Keuken' is located (translated: The Old Kitchen). Which is an atmospheric grand café with focus on local and organic products. The restaurant is co-runned by employees with certain difficulties, who are supported to participate within the regular job market. We are a big fan of 'De Oude Keuken' and its social entrepeneurship. This is why the restaurant provides your luxurious breakfast at the Watertower hotel. They'll bring it in the morning and make sure it get's hoisted all the way up to the door of your suite. But, don't let that convenience hold you back of a little exploration and have a good coffee or lunch at the café!

Doordeweeks weekend

Watertoren 20217442

Genieten van een fenomenaal uitzicht, terwijl beneden de file groeit... Ontbijten op bed, terwijl anderen hun mail doornemen... Een goede kop koffie drinken in je eigen privé suite in plaats van uit de automaat... Proosten met een glaasje bubbels in een vrijstaand bad, in plaats van gehaast de badkamer delen... Rust en stilte in het natuurgebied, niet dringen in de winkelstraten en 's avonds de beste tafel hebben in het restaurant... Vier weekend wanneer de wereld werkt!
