An overnight stay at La Butte aux Bois

Style and nature go hand in hand at this historic hotel. Its idyllic location – at the gate of Hoge Kempen National Park – and unprecedented hospitality combine to create the perfect summer escape.

Renowned gastronomy

Gault & Millau and Michelin award-winning restaurant Ralf Berendsen** is one of Belgium’s finest gastronomic destinations. Chef Ralf Berendsen creates exquisite haute-cuisine dishes such as a trio of langoustine with Tandoori Masala, miso and couscous, or French foie gras with Chinese yuzu, tangerine, and ginger beer.

Curious about what the cozy Bistrôt Le Ciel has in store? "French-Belgian cuisine with worldwide influences that is translated into dishes that are accessible and surprising." This is how Chef Pieter Beurskens describes the kitchen at Le Ciel. You can also enjoy a nice cocktail or glass of champagne in Bar Papillon.

A relaxing retreat

Put the cherry on top of your La Butte aux Bois experience with a spa session at the Shisheido Institute, a breath-taking wellness centre that overlooks the surrounding Hoge Kempen National Park. The building blends into its surroundings seamlessly, for a unique experience that offers the best of both nature and well-being. Discover the panoramic sauna, hammam, indoor pool, outdoor jacuzzi, and much more!

Looking for something more active? Explore the comfortable, fully equipped in-house gym, or train with a Personal Trainer for bootcamp, running, Nordic walking, and more.

For some additional relaxation, enjoy a yoga session tailored to your needs – including Yin Yoga, Mellow Hatha Yoga, Chakra Toning, or Pilates.
