The hotel opened to the public on 11 January, 2013. The eco-‐chic style stands for natural, unique and honest materials which simultaneously exude luxury and warmth.
The futuristic hotel boasts a roof terrace on the 19th floor for smokers. Below this is Sky Restaurant Pi, which offers a panoramic 360° view of the city of Amsterdam. “A completely round restaurant with an open kitchen at altitude is spectacular, and a boon for Amsterdam”, says Chris Luken,Chairman of Fletcher Hotels . For the lounge of the restaurant, Kolenik integrated one of the largest chandeliers in the world, weighing in at around 1500 kg: ‘the dream’. An amazing four metres high and nine metres wide, it is suspended above the bar in Sky Restaurant Pi.
The sky lounge accommodates a unique showpiece, the Whaletone, fashioned in the form of a whale. The piano is made entirely of sustainable materials (no ivory keys) and part of the proceeds from every instrument sold goes to whale protection initiatives. The building satisfies all modern requirements in terms of sustainability and the environment. This is why the hotel has been certified with the highest hallmark for sustainability for companies in the leisure sector: Green Key Gold.
