Located in the centre of Amsterdam within the city’s trendy “Plantage” quarter, Hyatt Regency Amsterdam is surrounded by green, situated just a few minutes from Amsterdam’s most iconic sites.
Hyatt Regency Amsterdam has been thoughtfully designed, blending history with a modern-day 24/7 lifestyle. The hotel boasts 211 guestrooms, including 15 suites. Inspired by the invigorating greenery of the hotel’s surroundings that is home to leafy boulevards and the city’s botanical garden, each guestroom is elegantly decorated with blooming floral, botanical artwork, and natural materials. Flexible furnishings, a generous workspace, large windows, and a striking bathroom with soothing walk-in rain shower complete every guest experience. Hakwood herringbone flooring was specified throughout the restaurant and bar, while Hakwood chevron and plank flooring was specified for the hotel ballroom, gym, and spa within the 5* hotel.
Exotic oasis at the Hyatt Regency Amsterdam: Mama Makan
The bright lobby and reception flow seamlessly into restaurant and bar Mama Makan, the culinary heart of the hotel with 150 seats and its own entrance. Evoking the atmosphere of a grand café inspired by the dining and sitting rooms of Jakarta, head chef Paul Verheul and his team take guests and locals on an enticing culinary journey. The restaurant and bar boasts European cuisine and Indonesian specialties as well as exotic cocktails inspired by the plants, herbs and spices of the Far East.
Responsible for the concept, interior and graphic design of the restaurant and hotel lobby is Amsterdam-based design studio, Concrete. A palette of exotic greens and golds, the wallpapers and furnishings come together to evoke a tropical and relaxed setting throughout. A brass cage-like cabinet wraps around the core of the building, with a concrete-edged palm pattern as a backdrop. The ‘cage’ accommodates all basic functions such as the restaurant bar, chef’s tables, private dining, wine fridges, wardrobe, service stations and the open kitchen clad in green tiles, reminiscent of the green cut-outs as found in the architecture of the building.
The central gilt structure continues seamlessly into the reception of the hotel lobby, with an onyx marble front desk greeting visitors as they come in. The bespoke Hakwood herringbone pattern graces the floor of the lobby and is mirrored along the ceiling, embracing the bar between the dynamic patterned wooden finishes. A living green wall with tropical plants connects the entrance to the patio in the rear, blurring the distinction between the inside and outside spaces.
