Amsterdam hotels: Okura

Serre restaurant terrace
Last week my best friend Kate (thekatemind.blogspot.com) got to visit one of the best hotels in Amsterdam – Okura hotel. Okura Amsterdam mostly functions as a business hotel due to its location – close to the main exhibition and convention centre of Amsterdam. However, it has some amazing features that everybody can enjoy. One of these is a Spa center located in the Okura hotel that offers a lot of beauty treatments and has an indoor swimming pool, Japanese stone garden and a gym. 

Moreover, Okura hotel offers their visitor 4 restaurants, two of which are awarded with Michelin stars. Ciel Bleu restaurant (2 michelin stars) is situated on the last floor of the hotel and has an amazing view on Amsterdam.

During our visit we got to experience one of the restaurants at Okura hotel – Serre restaurant with a beautiful terrace at the water. One of the signature dishes at Serre is a special box that includes 3 meals made from one ingredient which changes every season. At the moment, there is a Tomato box that includes a gaspacho soup, tomato bruschetta and pasta with tomato and mozzarella. Loved all of it, definitely worth a try!
