A part of the experience of our destinations is to engage with the interior of our rooms. Every room is equipped with a kitchen just waiting to be used, so when you have done your grocery shopping, start cooking and enjoy.

Should you have questions or need assistance, a member of the Vipp team will be standby during your stay to assist you.
