Located in Amsterdam’s Dam Square, the existing property is operating as NH Collection Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky. Ahead of the fall 2021 rebrand, the property will undergo a soft refurbishment of its guestrooms and suites, and a new spa and gym will be added. The new Anantara Spa will offer guests three specialized treatment rooms, a sauna and infrared sauna and a hammam. In total, the property will feature 402 guestrooms and suites. There will be 16 meetings rooms, boasting more than 6,500 square feet of meeting space. The property is currently home to the award-winning bar The Tailor, and Michelin-starred restaurant The White Room. Both will continue operation when the rebrand debuts.
“We are delighted to be continuing the expansion of our luxury Anantara brand in Europe with the addition of Anantara Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky Amsterdam. The historic hotel will be a fantastic addition to the Anantara portfolio when it joins later this year after enhancements to the property and represents an exciting milestone for the brand as the first in Northern Europe,” said Dillip Rajakarier, group CEO, Minor International, parent company of Anantara.
