Among the many excellent hotels in Amsterdam, there are several establishments that feature exclusive spas or wellness centres where guests can relax, exercise or get pampered during their time abroad. From charming boutiques to truly luxurious accommodation options, these are the best spa hotels in Amsterdam.
Situated inside a monumental building that once belonged to the city’s local government, Pestana Amsterdam Riverside provides guests with a wide array of high-end services, ranging from luxury rooms with views across the River Amstel to exclusive spa facilities, including an indoor swimming pool, Turkish bath and saunas. Though it may seem slightly further afield than other, more central accommodation options, its location is far from inconvenient and means that guests can quickly access many nearby (and often less crowded) hangouts and attractions, such as the Hermitage Museum and the many culinary hotspots found in the de Pijp neighbourhood. While there’s plenty to see close by, it is easy enough to spend nights relaxing inside the hotel itself, due to its excellent on-site restaurant and welcoming spa.
Located on the banks of Amsterdam’s Prinsengracht canal, in an area steeped in history, this five-star hotel features over 100 guest rooms and suites fitted with luxurious furnishings and unique artworks. Every space inside the hotel is meticulously designed, creating a sense of comfort and exclusivity that’s almost unmatched in Amsterdam. Guests searching for some extra rest and relaxation can spend some well-earned downtime inside the hotel’s spa, which has several facilities dedicated to fitness and recuperation. The spa offers many types of massage treatments, which are given by professional masseurs, and contains a 24-hour fitness centre with a wide range of gym equipment.
This five-star hotel stands inside a former office block that’s considered the first, true example of Amsterdamse School architecture – a Dutch design movement from the early 20th century that is characterised by expressive brickwork and Art Nouveau-esque motifs. There are 205 luxury guest bedrooms, plus 22 suites available inside the hotel, which are spread between its many floors and towers. What’s more, guests at Grand Hotel Amrâth Amsterdam may access an on-site wellness centre free of charge, which features an extensive array of relaxing or invigorating facilities, ranging from saunas of varying sizes and temperature to a fitness room fitted with modern gym equipment.
With five stars under its belt, plus a historic location and services to match, InterContinental Amstel Amsterdam ranks among the most luxurious hotels in Europe. Its suites and rooms are spread inside a stunning, Neoclassical building on the western banks of the Amstel River, which could easily be mistaken for a museum or palace due to its stately architecture. Guests at the hotel have access to many additional facilities during their stay, including a health and fitness club, with a heated pool, saunas and horizontal showers. Thanks to its cavernous layout and many well-equipped rooms, this charming facility has plenty of space for relaxation, indulgence and exercise, making it perfect for travellers who are eager to pamper themselves during their time away from home.
Set inside a Ne0-Gothic building that once served as a music conservatory, this five-star establishment has received many awards for its services over the years and offers everything you’d expect, and more, from one of the most luxurious hotels in the world. The Conservatorium Hotel stands midway between Amsterdam’s Museumplein and Vondelpark in an area that’s renowned for its splendid architecture. Due to its grand facade, towering turrets and high, curved windows, the hotel matches perfectly with its surroundings. The Conservatorium features many additional facilities aside from its rooms and suites, including an expansive spa, Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre, which is equipped with a swimming pool, space for massages and a state-of-the-art gym. Guests at this peaceful wellness centre can either spend time relaxing or create tailor-made courses with Akasha’s team of personal trainers, who are on-hand to guide visitors through workout, exercise or yoga sessions.
It is difficult to miss Hotel Okura, considering that it ranks among the tallest buildings in Amsterdam and stands above the city’s southernly de Pijp district. Due to the hotel’s towering architecture, most rooms and suites inside Okura offer panoramic views across Amsterdam and its surroundings. These high-end lodgings are, of course, equipped with all the essentials, plus many luxurious items like marble bathtubs or deluxe beds that help make stays at Hotel Okura even more memorable. Besides its lodgings, two-Michelin-star restaurants and a sky-high cocktail bar, Hotel Okura also features a large spa and wellness centre on its third floor. This peaceful sanctuary contains many modern facilities tailored around rest and relaxation, which are accessible to guests from early in the morning until late at night.
W Amsterdam holds the distinction of being the only hotel in the city with an open-air rooftop pool. While this one-of-a-kind feature is already impressive, it is worth mentioning that the pool in question runs alongside Dam Square and looks directly onto the city’s Royal Palace. Guests at W Amsterdam can also relax, train or pamper themselves elsewhere in the hotel and freely access a fully-equipped gym with weights, treadmills and exercise bikes, as well as an underground wellness centre that is spread over seven treatment rooms. The hotel is among the most exclusive establishments of its kind in the Netherlands and boasts over 200 guest rooms, which are perfect for travellers who want to indulge during their time in Amsterdam.
