Beach Resort Punt-West boasts 72 villas and 20 studios to be precise. All offer a combination of home and hotel. “It’s got the privacy of a spacious home and the service and luxury of a hotel,” explains commercial manager Malou Versloot. At the centre of the park is the international beach club Werelds Aan Het Strand. Comparisons to places such as Saint Tropez, Ibiza and Dubai seem only logical. “That was actually the goal when it was built: to create accommodation like we’ve never seen it before in the Netherlands – yet to keep the personal aspect,” says Versloot.
