One year after the official opening, contemporary luxury hotel W Amsterdam has inaugurated an annex right across the street. Baptized X Bank, a name inspired by its financial history, the building was added to the hybrid design complex at a later stage, and is now ready to accommodate travellers with a penchant for design-infused lodgings. The X Bank annex features 66 rooms, including W Amsterdam’s top pad, the so-called Extreme WOW Suite. At 184 sqm. (1,981 sq.ft.) it’s the most spacious and lavish room on the premises, and comes with scenic canal views. X Bank is also home to an eponymous store filled to the guilds with Dutch design merchandise, and The Duchess, a swanky gourmet restaurant. Both venues have opened earlier this year, but are now complemented by stellar new facilities. The ground floor is now also home to The Butcher, an informal dining concept with a focus on artisanal hamburgers and matching side dishes. Keeping it all balanced, a fully equipped gym is now also readily available. The adjacent X Bar serves health drinks to keep you hydrated while breaking sweat. But the most impressive addition is the AWAY Spa. Its subterranean location adds to the luxurious and somewhat mystical black and gold aesthetic. Featuring no less than seven treatment rooms, a sauna, steam cabin, hot tub, and a relaxation room,it offers guests a variety of exclusive treatments.
The spa was conceived by 4SeasonsSpa and designed by architects Baranowitz + Kronenberg .
