Whether you want to enjoy all your time outdoors or spend the week in the upgraded lounges or the spa, Oosterdam offers a fantastic range of options.
The modern central pool features a retractable “magradome” roof that can be completely closed to create an indoor pool space. It looks fantastic both day and night and doubles as our secondary indoor party space.
