Conservatorium Amsterdam turns five

DEAL ALERT! : The Conservatorium’s Big Five Package will be available all year and costs €11,555 ($12,325) inclusive of VAT, exclusive of 5 per cent city tax, subject to availability.

In honour of its fifth-year anniversary, Conservatorium Amsterdam, the city’s grand luxury lifestyle palace, introduces ‘The Big Five’ package combining five most thrilling must-dos in the city. A three-night stay in the Amsterdam Suite – a beautiful 155 sq m triplex with a wonderful 360-degree view over the rooftops of the Dutch capital – including private butler service.

The building of the Conservatorium was originally designed by the Dutch architect Daniel Knuttel as the Rijkspostspaarbank and sparked the regeneration of the Museum Quarter at the end of the 19th century. In the 1980s, the building became the home of the newly formed Sweelinck Conservatorium, which outgrew its home in 2008 and relocated to its current location.

The package includes a three-night stay in the Amsterdam Suite including breakfast in the Brasserie or in the suite, a bottle of bubbles upon arrival, a copy of #59 Magazine Conservatorium anniversary edition, a private transfer by Bentley to and from the airport, the big five activities in Amsterdam, a private lunch with the Conservatorium’s general manager, Roy Tomassen, private butler service during the stay, the five steps to perfection treatment in Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre for two persons, an eight-course Omakase menu in Taiko restaurant, including wine or sake pairing and a late check-out at 4pm.

The big five activities in Amsterdam are carefully selected by the host department of the Conservatorium. They include a private canal boat tour with Michelin-star bites, a private guided tour at the Van Gogh Museum, a helicopter tour above Amsterdam, a tour with one of Conservatorium’s cultural ambassadors such as designer studios and creative spaces that rarely open to the public, and lastly a visit to the ’DAM lookout skyline experience.
