Three star restaurant and boutique hotel Inter Scaldes acquired by Amerborgh and Pillows Hotels


Manoir Restaurant Inter Scaldes, located in Kruiningen – Zeeland province, has been run by Jannis and Claudia Brevet since 2001. With its superior kitchen, the restaurant with boutique hotel offers guests a unique luxury experience. The extraordinary combination of top-rated gastronomy, typical Dutch surroundings, exceptional quality standards, and a helicopter landing pad on site allures visitors from all over the world.

The style of chef Jannis Brevet is characterized by simplicity and the use of local products. Inter Scaldes’ phenomenal culinary quality is recognized by, amongst others, the highest possible award of three Michelin stars and a Gault&Millau score of 19.5 points.

Amerborgh is the holding company of Unique and USG People founder Alex Mulder, that invests in art and culture, musicals, hotels, luxury care facilities, but also HR and software solutions. Amerborgh builds a collection of companies and activities that not only create financial, but also societal value.

Pillows Hotels, part of Amerborgh, offers its guests a luxurious home feeling in its hotels throughout the Netherlands and Belgium. Pillows recently opened the fully renovated five star Maurits at the Park in the Oosterpark.

The real estate of Inter Scaldes is acquired by Amerborgh. Pillows Hotels takes responsibility for the operations of the restaurant and hotel.

Jannis and Claudia will step down as part of the transaction. Later this year, after spending 48 years in the kitchen, they will be succeeded by Jeroen and Sanne Achtien, currently responsible for two star restaurant Sens in Vitznau, Switzerland. Jannis about his successors: “Jeroen and Sanne have the same ambition and drive to guarantee the quality of Inter Scaldes and continue this tradition.”

Guests are offered the opportunity to dine with Inter Scaldes’ current chef one last time. The Brevet couple states: “We gathered a lot of loyal visitors around us throughout all these years. Stepping down is emotional for us. We will run Inter Scaldes until mid-September to say our beloved guests farewell. The phone hasn’t stopped ringing and we receive a new reservation every two minutes.”

For now, Jannis takes on an advisory role for the new operating couple and other restaurants that are part of Pillow Hotels. CEO Loes Dingemans states: "Training and allowing young talent to flourish is in the Pillows DNA. So far, we have achieved wonderful recognitions with our restaurants and chefs. In the past five years, for instance, we have received honorable mentions from Michelin and Gault&Millau. With Jannis Brevet's knowledge and expertise, we will have the opportunity to take our restaurants to an even higher level."
