- It is also possible to extend your staycation with a dinner in Teppanyaki Restaurant Sazanka for an additional charge of € 70 per person for the seasonal menu or € 135 per person for the classic menu. Both options include a complimentary aperitif.
Origami and chopstick workshop
To enhance the feeling of a trip to Japan, we offer an origami and chopstick workshop daily from 11.00 am until noon. Origami, derived from ‘ori’ (folding) and ‘kami’ (paper), is the Japanese art of folding paper. Our Japanese colleagues will show you the technique, to get you started with this Japanese art yourself. In addition, you will receive tips from our professionals on the use of chopsticks. Once you have mastered the technique, you will notice that the sticks are a natural extension of the thumb and index finger. They will also explain the cultural do’s and don’ts. Participation in this workshop is exclusively for guests who book the staycation package.
Sake is also called rice wine and is a traditional Japanese drink. During this workshop, one of our colleagues will explain about the ingredients, the brewing process and the types of sake. Next to that, you will also taste a selection of 5 different sakes yourself. You can join this workshop for € 50 per person. This workshop takes place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 4.00 pm until 5.00 pm.
Reservations are required for both workshops; you can select the workshop(s) during the booking process to make a reservation. The sake workshop will be reserved for the day of arrival and the origami and chopstick workshop for your day of departure. If you wish to move this reservation to another day of your stay, please let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would like to inform you that a minimum of 4 attendees is required for these workshops to go ahead.
