OUR TEAM

Pleased to meet you

At the beginning of 2021, Hotel Flora Batava will open in a unique country estate on the Vecht, near Breukelen. A beautiful boutique hotel where history, nature and contemporary luxury come together. Currently our team consists of a small, intimate pre-opening team, but it is rapidly growing into a fully-fledged hotel team!

CHEF

“At the age of 15 I discovered the fun, hectic and intensive collaboration in the hospitality industry. I learned and developed my profession at restaurants De Nederlanden and the Amstel Hotel.

My cooking style is characterized by putting the guest at the beginning of every creation. It starts with the question who the guests are, for what occasion they come and how we can surprise them again. ”

OTTO GENZ

Otto Genz

Assistent hotel manager

“My greatest passion is hospitality. I’ve been working in the hotel industry since my first job. After my studies at Hotelschool The Hague, I worked as General Manager for Postillion Hotels.

In my spare time I like to cook. Cooking for a few hours really feels like relaxation to me. If your table guests can appreciate the food and I manage to find the perfect wine with the dish, that gives me great satisfaction. ”

Owner

“In 2016 I had the idea to restore the 300-year-old derelict country estate De Vijverhof and give it a hotel function. In recent years I learned about the region, about landscaped gardens and about construction. We have preserved and restored the historical elements and created modern spaces. It was a special journey. I am really looking forward to opening!”

RELAX AND ENJOY A STAY ALONG THE VECHT. WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU

“For years I have lived with my family in the Vecht region. I enjoy running, cycling and boating along and on the Vecht. I am charmed by the boats, the panoramic views, the activity of the farms, the beautiful nature and the enormous wealth of cultural heritage. I can also enjoy the conviviality in the villages of Breukelen, Maarssen and Loenen.

I hope I can inspire you to discover how beautiful it is over here. That is why our website features many tips for a wonderful stay in the Vecht region.”
