The warm weather is making way for the colder and cozy days and it’s the perfect period for a visit to the spa. But if you don’t feel like sharing a sauna or bubble bath with people you don’t know, Spa 1001 is THE place for you. This spa is private and available to hire for you and your friends only. Me and my girlfriends put it to the test.
Most hotspots are in the city centre of Amsterdam, at least that’s what most people think. I live outside the centre so I know better. Restaurants, coffee spots and shops are poppin’ up in and around Amsterdam and you should know about them. Spa 1001 is located in Amsterdam New West in Osdorp and close to the upcoming Tuinen van West area where you can also find one of my favorite hideout spots. The spa is also popular with Dutch celebrities like actrice Victoria Koblenko and footballer Justin Kluivert, vlogster Sisi Bolatini and other top sporters and well known vloggers.
You really experience a middle eastern ambiance
You can either book 2,5 or 5 hours and enjoy the sauna, steam room with a optic star-ceiling, spacious jacuzzi or unwind in the luxurious (and large) lounge area that includes a fireplace. Here you really experience a middle eastern ambiance. Here you can watch Netflix, turn on the music you like and eat a breakfast or a delicious high tea, depending what arrangement you book. You have several options.
- Private for 2 arrangement for the romantic peeps (from €149)
- Good Morning arrangement for the early birds (from €119)
- Girlfriends arrangements for gossip and sweets (from €149)
- Spa & Party arrangement for 8-12 persons (from €54 per person)
I tried the Luxury girlfriends arrangement with 3 of my friends and this included a welcome drink and a high tea in the lounge area. We could even lock the door from the inside and put on the tunes we liked. If we needed anything, we could dial the reception with the phone provided. The Spa has 2 floors and a nice dressing room for you to get changed and dry your hair. You will get some comfy slippers and a beautiful bathrobe to wear. Mind you, you need to pay an additional €10,- for this if you book the normal girlfriends arrangement. Swimwear is allowed but not necessary. Perfect for those who hate walking around naked with other strange people around. This is your chance to let it all hang out without feeling a bit shy!
