It’s a city resort with extraordinary fine dining, authentic Belgian bistro cuisine, a ground-breaking spa, conference hub and a wedding venue. A hidden gem in Antwerp’s botanical gardens, the Botanic Sanctuary stands on the foundations of a 12th-century monastery. Its historic character has been preserved all over the place, enhanced by a sophisticated contemporary touch. The annexe 15th-century chapel is a magnificent location for magical weddings and an idyllic ambience for private events. The monastic heritage inspired the unique Botanic Health Spa concept, focused on naturopathy, phytotherapy, traditional European medicine, and ancient methods of healing and prevention. The 1,000sqm spa spreads across three floors and includes an 18m panoramic swimming pool, cocooning spaces, extensive sauna area, Jacuzzi, lounge, vitamin and herbal bars and the Spa Bistro. Curious travellers seeking local immersion will find great occasions.
The 108 rooms and suites – each one unique – reflect the historical style and significance of the complex. At the same time, they radiate timeless richness 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.
