Where East meets the Wadden Sea – discover a Dutch farmhouse culinary retreat, eco-consciously inspired by nature in every detail

From the moment you arrive at Op Oost, you sense the intimate connection this boutique hotel has with the surrounding wild landscape. Tucked away in East on Texel, one of Holland’s Wadden Sea islands, this beautiful, authentic farmhouse and seaweed barn offer the perfect blend of historic features with a comfortable and contemporary ‘farm chic’ ambiance. 

Whichever of the twelve spacious garden suites and lodges you choose, you can be sure every eco-conscious detail supports Op Oost’s Green Key Gold certification. This is where comfort, peace and respect for the environment reign supreme – accompanied by the salty, sweet delights of Nordic and botanical cuisine served in the hotel’s Kook Atelier.

Wake up to uninterrupted views across farmland, Oost village and the Wadden Sea dike. Breathe in the aromas of lavender, rosemary, chamomile, sage and other herbs and flowers growing in the hotel’s edible garden. Start the morning with a fresh organic breakfast made from locally sourced ingredients. You might want to wander or cycle to the Wad to gather oysters and forage for delicious seaweed and wild herbs. Then, as the evening draws in, enjoy a blissful, therapeutic massage in your room. Or simply lie back on your COCO MAT mattress that, like everything else in Op Oost, is made of sustainable, natural materials, for a deep, green sleep.

SLH Considerate Collection

Environmentally Conscious

The raw power of Texel island radiates throughout this converted farmhouse, which lies just 150 metres from the Wadden Sea. Free-range chickens roam the wildly beautiful grounds, ‘making’ the perfect breakfast eggs, while bees hum around the fruit trees and butterflies flit between the herbal and vegetable gardens which supply the farm-to-fork restaurants where organic dishes are washed down with beer from nearby Bird Brewery, which plants a tree for every 10 litres of beer sold. From the homemade in-room vegan cosmetics and dried reusable flower arrangements to the jewellery crafted from flowers growing at the gates, there is a heartfelt connection to nature here.

SLH Considerate Collection

Cultural Custodians

During the meticulous renovation of the 18th century farm and barn, which was once used to dry seaweed and trade oysters, great care has been taken to preserve the original features of the buildings while reusing the wooden floor and window frames and upcycling old furniture. Food is seen as a real culture here, where the chefs are putting modern Dutch cuisine back on the map and a Nordic philosophy of head-to-tail cooking infuses local produce. Almost everything is foraged, farmed, and fermented within 150 metres of Op Oost, including soft drinks, syrups and jams made from herbs and fruit found in the garden.

SLH Considerate Collection

Community Minded

Everything at this barefoot retreat is hyper-local, with a deep rooted connection to the Wadden Islands’ farming and fishing communities. There is a strong ‘served by nature’ ethos in the atelier which puts nature’s finest on a plate. Guests are encouraged to visit Op Oost’s suppliers including local dairy and sheep farms, as well as the local farmers’ market and fishmongers to which the hotel organises trips by boat. From private oyster picking to foraging tours with local guides, guests are given a thoroughly down-to-earth Dutch experience in this windswept yet warmly welcoming corner of the Netherlands.

Op Oost

Green Key to paradise, found 

Green Key Gold Op Oost takes its eco-conscious credentials seriously. The hotel works closely with local farmers to grow organic vegetables, conserves the harvest through fermentation and brining, and uses only natural dyes in its 100% vegan homemade wellness products. Everything Op Oost makes, grows, buys and serves to its guests in its restaurants is based on what’s good for the environment. 
 
Op Oost

An edible world at your feet

The colourful flowers and plants sprouting from garden walls, lining the forest floor and around the Schorren salt marshes makes Oost a forager’s dream. Discover the delicate, salty sweetness of sea kale, bramble, sea fennel, samphire and delicate purple blooms of sea lavender growing where Texel’s Wad meets the shore. The meadows are also nature’s medicine cabinet and kitchen larder – teeming with wild herbs and plants such as yarrow, chamomile, nettle, angelica root, field sorrel and mallow.
 
Op Oost

Go wild and free, the Texel way

From Op Oost it takes just minutes to get off the beaten track and into the tranquil wildlife-rich nature reserves. Along with suggesting the best walking and cycling routes, the hotel will happily share tips on the best bird watching spots and where to pick native plants in an environmentally responsible way. Enjoy the fruits of the sea with a behind-the-scenes visit to the fish market in Den Oever, or go oyster collecting with Op Oost’s resident oyster expert and a chilled glass of white wine.

Food And Drinks

The restaurant closely follows a ‘Served by Nature’ motto. During the winter, the restaurant opens as a pop-up in the nearby village of De Koog, complete with sand dunes and forest backdrop, drawing inspiration and their ingredients directly from land and sea. Sit down to fresh, light and adventurous dishes of wild harvested vegetables and edible flowers, Wadden oysters, and other mouth-watering crustaceans. Exquisite presentation together with seasonal, ‘head to tail and bone’ principles make for exciting and ethical dishes.

Het Kook Atelier

Served by Nature philosophy. Our kitchen is based on breeding- foraging and preserving. This ensures a light- fresh and challenging menu- in which we make extensive use of wild harvested vegetables- salty vegetables from the garden- fish- shellfish and crustaceans. We also serve vegetables- edible flowers and herbs grown by our farmer.

Spa

Your suite at Op Oost can be transformed into a self-care and wellness haven. Simply book one of the hotel’s special in-room massages – just for yourself or as a couple. After a welcoming hot drink made from 100% pure organic, Fairtrade cocoa, your mind and body will be calmed and revived by a unique combination of soothing aromatherapy oils, gemstones and freshly picked medicinal herbs from the garden for your bath.
