Michel Kloeg, Owner of Kloeg Collection
Michel Kloeg, born in 1960 in Rotterdam, has been an entrepreneur since his early twenties. After a successful career in the funeral business in Rotterdam, it was time for a change. His journey into hospitality started when he took over a beach bar in 2008 in Dishoek, Zeeland. The whole family joined the company. Five years later, a new opportunity came his way when he and his wife became owners of Beach Hotel in Zoutelande. Three years later, the hotel was largely rebuilt. It doubled in capacity and officially got its fourth hotel star, setting the standard for all hotels that were still to come.
Business is booming in Zeeland and it didn’t take long before Hotel Kaap West was built and opened in Westkapelle. With this second hotel added to the collection, the organization grew. The ambition: Making holidays in Zeeland attractive and sustainable. To do this, and to facilitate the growth of the company, Kloeg Collection was born.
Since then, the collection of 4-star hotels started growing rapidly, and his family once again joined him in his efforts. In the years that followed, Hofstede Moesbosch, Boutique Hotel Rijks, and Hotel Zeeuws Licht were added. In 2022, Hotel de Timmerfabriek, Hotelboot Koningin Emma and Boutique Hotel Helder were opened. In 2023, Hotel St. Joris and Timmerfabriek Apartments will open their doors. With a mind that is always open to new possibilities, new hotels will certainly follow.
Throughout all his endeavors, Michel has a strong, ambitious vision while constantly looking for the perfect balance between people and the environment. Even in difficult times, he will see the potential – in projects and in people. With Kloeg Collection, Michel strives to be both the best employer in Zeeland, and the go-to hotel brand for people looking for a relaxing vacation in Zeeland.
