Who doesn’t love the works of Vincent Van Gogh? One can stare for hours andhours at his iconic Sunflowers located in various museums all over the world. And if Amsterdam is on your travel list, visiting the Van Gogh Museum should definitely be on the priority list. Don’t forget to stay at Amsterdam’s leading luxury hotel Conservatorium too!
The hotel has partnered with its Museum Square District neighbour, the Van Gogh Museum, to offer guests customisable suites and unparalleled access to the highly anticipated ‘Van Gogh & Japan’
exhibit this spring and summer. Guests can take advantage of a new package that includes a variety of amenities, each of which celebrates the work of Van Gogh and offers a level of personalisation found nowhere else.
Available for the duration of the exhibit from March 23 through June 24, the “Van Gogh Suite” package enables guests to decorate the walls of their rooms with their choice of Van Gogh’s iconic works, including “Almost Blossom,” “Flowering Plum Orchard,” “Self-Portrait With Grey Felt Hat” or “Courtesan.” The Suites also feature specially-designed items such as pillows, teacups and teapots that were inspired by these works and are available for purchase at the Van Gogh Museum shop next-door.
Guests can embrace the spirit of Van Gogh and explore their own creativity at Conservatorium, as each room will have its own aquarelle set and guestbook, the first page of which will feature a painting by hotel General Manager and accomplished artist Roy Tomassen.
The “Van Gogh Suite” package starts at €920 per night, and includes: One-night stay in the Van Gogh Suite (Junior Suite level), direct and complimentary access to the ‘Van Gogh & Japan’ exhibition for two guests among other amenities.
Exceptional loans from museums and private collections from all over the world will be brought to Amsterdam and exhibited at “Van Gogh & Japan”, including Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear, 1889 (The Courtauld Gallery, London), a fragile work that has not left the UK since 1955 and has not been in The Netherlands since 1930. This is the first time that an exhibition which highlights Van Gogh’s admiration for Japanese art and the impact it had on his own work has been organised on such a scale.
