op Oost is a gastronomic destination on the rustic island of Texel, a stone's throw from the Wadden Sea. ‘op Oost' consists of the 'Kook Atelier' restaurant and twelve suites, which are located in an authentic 18th century farmhouse and seaweed shed. All this is surrounded by an edible garden with a view of the farmers' fields and green garden walls. 'Inspired by Nature' is our vision, what you will find in the base and every detail.
When guests board the boat to the island, their worries and unrest remain on the other side. In this boutique hotel they are not only unburdened, but they feel at home. A new place that they didn't know existed at first, but is now on their wish list for their next culinary escape.
op Oost want guests to connect with themselves, their own nature and the nature around them. They do this by exposing them to the elements again. From the wind in their hair, to the salty taste of our kitchen, the smell of the meadows and the sand of the mudflats under their bare feet. It is a form of barefoot luxury that cannot be bought. Because what the guests experience is ‘time’. Time to be themself, to consciously enjoy everything that they are too busy for back home, to play, to discover, to marvel, to wonder…. Time... our most precious asset.
Inspired by Nature is the common thread. In everything we do. From the vegetarian breakfast, to the edible garden in which guests can wander around and taste the moment, the eco linen, natural beds, home-made soft drinks, the reuse of furniture and materials, the no-waste principle, home-made cosmetics for guests and of course the restaurant with the menu ' Served by Nature'.... everything breathes nature. Embrace it, guard it, experience it. Feel wondered at ‘op Oost’.
