Booking.com invites you to wake up in a field of Dutch tulips

For the very first time, guests can book an amazing overnight stay in a beautiful Tulip Pod next to the iconic Dutch tulip fields of Keukenhof

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – April 16, 2018 – This spring, for the very first time, Booking.com is giving travelers the chance to ‘wake up and smell the tulips’ with an amazing overnight stay in an atmospheric Pod accommodation with translucent, panoramic views over the tulip fields of Keukenhof.

Located just a half an hour drive from Amsterdam, the famous Keukenhof gardens are open for only eight weeks a year, welcoming over one million visitors from around the world during that time. The gardens offer a cacophony of color as an ocean of tulips form an unforgettable vista stretching as far as the eye can see.

After checking in, guests will be led to their exclusive, translucent Pod accommodation offering panoramic views of the fields and kitted decked out with everything needed for a cozy and truly memorable night’s stay. With all-area access, guests are then welcome to explore the gardens on their own before enjoying a complementary dinner in one of the restaurants at Keukenhof. Finally, once tucked into the Pod’s comfortable bed, guests can enjoy a deep sleep amongst the beautiful flower displays. A complimentary breakfast is also included the following morning.

“At Booking.com, we are proud to empower travelers to truly experience the world,” said Pepijn Rijvers, Chief Marketing Officer at Booking.com. “Reflecting our Dutch heritage and celebrating the excitement we all feel when the tulips start to bloom, we can’t wait for guests to wake up amongst the tulips of Keukenhof and experience this exceptional, unique experience first-hand.”

This unique initiative celebrates the incredible diversity of Booking.com’s offering and is a lavish example of just one of the many unforgettable travel experiences customers can enjoy at one of the more than 5 million reported listings in vacation, homes, apartments and other unique places to stay on Booking.com. It follows on the heels of other extraordinary experiences including a night in the highest bedroom in Europe, on the indoor panoramic viewing platform at The View from The Shard in London and a night in the Ultimate Nick Jonas’ Tour Bus in Los Angeles, featuring a guest appearance from Nick Jonas himself.

People who want to take advantage of the opportunity to wake up in a field of tulips must be quick as only a few select nights are available for booking. Every day at 5:00 a.m. EST on 1 April 17, 18 and 19, a new night will become available for April 20, 21 and 22, respectively. This unique experience can be booked for just $85.00.
