"Not Bali, but Beemster; a luxury eco-chic wellness resort, located in an Unesco monument. A combination of stylish and sustainable, with special facilities. The panoramic sauna with a view of the North Holland Beemster Polder, for example. Or the herbal bath, the salt bath, the meditation garden, the hot spring and much more."

Harper's Bazaar

"In the middle of the Beemster Polder, you can relax at Fort Resort Beemster. Behind the walls of a former fort you will find this sauna and spa, which is eco-friendly because, for example, the residual heat from the sauna heats the baths and the spa itself. And all that less than 20 minutes from Amsterdam."
