In the Southwest of the Netherlands, there’s a little piece of heaven called Oasis Punt-West. A place where you can relax, enjoy views over the water and eat local fish dishes. This luxury resort has everything you need for a relaxing getaway in the Netherlands.
A getaway ideally located at the Dutch waterfront
Oasis Punt-West is surrounded by the North Sea, gorgeous rural sites, small town Ouddorp and Lake Grevelingen (Grevelingenmeer). The luxury villas are directly located at the beach and are perfect for a more extended stay or a family trip. If you are looking for something ideal for couples, they also offer smaller Hotel studios alongside the water. These are suitable for couples and weekend getaways. Besides, the villas and hotel studios perfectly harmonize with the surrounding nature with their sustainable designs. In addition, there is Bar & Restaurant Zeven directly on site. Enjoy an evening eating out here or relax on one of the beach beds during the day.
Hotel Studio Waterfront
We stayed in one of the Hotel Studios with a lovely terrace overlooking the water. The Hotel studio is small (think a tiny house with an additional floor) but very comfortable. It offered everything we needed for a chill staycation. Upon arrival, we found a bottle of wine and dog cookies (yes, we brought the dog) as a welcoming gift. There’s a fully equipped kitchen, dining, and living area on the first floor. We loved having the doors open to our private terrace, which made it feel like outside and inside become one. Furthermore, the Hotel studio has a comfy made-up bed – special thanks for the swan towels and rose petals – and a spacious rainforest shower.
The service was excellent, and it pretty much continued that way. Every day, housekeeping would make up the bed and refresh towels if needed. Particularly the breakfast that the staff brings to the Hotel studio is satisfying. Every morning at a time of your preference, they leave a bag filled with a bread assortment (including croissants), different jams, cheese, and cold cuts. As well as that, you’ll find milk, yogurt, fruits, and orange juice. Time for breakfast in bed or on the terrace!
Explore activities around Oasis Punt-West
Besides Bar & Restaurant Zeven, there are enough things to do and see around Oasis Punt-West. For example; the North Sea is only 2 kilometers away. After a walk at the beach (or dip in the sea), take place at beachfront eatery Paal 10 or – our favourite – Beachclub Natural High. Love watching kite surfers? Go to Beachclub Zee, a terrace and restaurant built on water!
Leave the beach behind and explore the waters. At sea, you can book surfing and kitesurfing lessons. But if you’re interested in a more relaxed activity, rent a sup board to go on Lake Grevelingen. Romantic while watching the sunset!
In this part of the Netherlands, nature is gorgeous. Oasis recommends five different hiking routes in the nearby area. One with fantastic views over the swamps, others with a rich history of WWII. Our favourite? We loved seeing the transition between dunes, greens, sand, and the sea during the ‘De Kwade Hoek’ route.
The combination of serenity at Oasis Punt-West, the beautiful area, and the diversity of activities is a recipe for unwinding from your daily routine. Wake up overlooking the water and imagine your feet in the warm sand. Check out their Hotel Studio’s and other accommodations!
