Sometimes we go my wife and myself to a private sauna to enjoy massage and a few hours of real relaxing. Nooz is for me one of the best places you can have. You can hire for a few hours a "pavillon" where you can enjoy a superb massage surrounded by a quiet nature. Take half a day off and go there to revitalise!

Great place to relax but don't stay in the pavilion as the bed is very bad.Rest was ok but not that special neither as the massage was a bit soft and the dinner not as expected for the money they charge. Breakfast was great as also the different water options offered.

Time stopped and it was an afternoon in a cocoon of comfort, filled with delights and pampering.

Food and fresh smoothies were great, massages and service was TOP.

We did arrive in time due to car troubles which gave us a delay of 2 hours!
It didn't matter for Nooz, we where still very welcome and the hospitality they offer makes you feel at ease right away.

We ordered the evening water with Water Oasis arrangement.

We visited Nooz after deciding we needed some relax time after a stressful week. The website caught my eye and I started reading. It looked and sounded amazing. The prices were high so, so were our expectation. I called them to check for availability as it was last minute arrangements. Wim confirmed so all was good. We arrived, we enjoyed our evening but in the end were not impressed with the reality and went home after only a few hours.

The good stuff:
- Wim swiftly called me back every time I could not reach them (although strange that nobody answered the phone in the first place)
- Reservations were smooth and flexible in arrival time (great work)
- Nice surroundings at the wood-stove to have dinner.
- Overall the accommodations looked modern and well taken care of.

The ok stuff:
- Food was fresh and plenty but nothing impressive. Presentation was less than desired.
- Wine, perhaps check your guests wine knowledge before you shoot off the "almost bio wine" winestory about Nooz wine. I'm sure its serious for Joeri who explained but it came over amateur like for me and it only made me chuckle. The flavor was dull, none to very little fruit flavors. I would rate it a 2 on Vivino. Not worth the 20 euro extra I had to pay for a bottle.
Good stuff! You did serve the wine in the correct Chardonnay glass.

The not so good stuff:

- Wim, you need someone to review your communication. Take it from a pro. Your email template is cluttered and get someone to pick up the phone. Also, work on your own way of communicating. That headset in your ear creates a barrier and looks silly. I don't know if you wear it all the time but it annoyed us. The intake conversation was dull and sounded like you said it a few times to many. Besides its only a repetition from whats on the website...

- The website says dont bring anything. We have everything for you... Not for my shoe size and bodyshape apparently. Slippers were ridiculous to small. I only wore them to show you how small they are and the robe was XXL but still way to small for me (I'm not a big guy)

- Water Oasis was much less than impressive. Only water available is a Jacuzzi (great quality) and a very cold fishpond. I would suggest you get rid of the fish and build a swimming-pool instead. Perhaps even add a sauna to the oasis. Today, it just does not deliver the message from the website.

- Nooz has it's own meaning for Private I believe. I could hear plenty of people around us and we could see the cars at the street side. Given that we had plenty of light I'm sure people could see us from the street as well. In the end we were no longer comfortable so we went home.

As I stated in my title, great potential. However we are used to another level of luxury I'm afraid. Nooz just didn't impress us as we were hoping it would.

Hartelijk dank voor je feedback.
We vinden het jammer dat het unieke noozen niet volledig voldeed aan je verwachten.
Noozen staat voor ongekend samen genieten zonder storing van vreemde mensen zoals op restaurant en hotels, zonder storing van tijd en 'veel doen' zoals bv. privé sauna centers..
Onze gasten komen noozen omdat ze eindelijk een concept hebben gevonden waar ze 100% aandacht aan elkaar kunnen geven... zonder afleiding van veel doen, zonder afleiding van tijd, zonder afleiding van vreemde mensen. En 100% een zintuigelijke reis die je met elkaar kan delen.
De tevredenheid van Nooz is dan ook een prachtige barometer over de tevredenheid van je relatie ! Want Noozen is 100% quality time, uniek in Europa.
De meest feedback die we van jou gekregen hebben is dus in strijd met het NOOZEN.
Noozen gaat niet enkel en alleen over 'proeven' van wijn maar ook bv. het zien... De wijn is wel degelijk van top kwaliteit van Chateau Ricardelle maar daarboven in een uniek jasje met een exclusieve fles...
We begrijpen ook niet het aspect 'privé'. Alles is geheel privé op 1.5 Ha en ver weg van welke grote baan ook met auto's ? 'plenty of people' kan onmogelijk want er zijn max. 8 gasten op maar liefst 1.5 Ha ! Zoveel ruimte en rust kan je nergens vinden...
We vinden het dan ook heel jammer dat we feedback moeten lezen via deze weg.
Ons team werkt met 100% passie ! Omdat de perfectie niet bestaat vragen we altijd feedback via onze gasten om het nog beter te kunnen doen. We hebben van jou op onze vraag geen enkele feedback bekomen. Jammer, want we staan graag altijd 100% klaar voor ons gasten.

Nice "hotel". Amazing projector and surround sound. We booked this and then realised it was a spa hotel. Total luxury if that's what you like. BUT.... I didn't like the big screened out picture you get rather than a REAL view outside the window, I felt a little boxed in rather than private. Was like someone had brought the house and plonked three or four outbuildings in the back garden. There was a outside double shower in the garden. Breakfast was the most expensive at 21 euros each hence we decided to give it a miss and the evening meal was 45 euros each also gave it a miss as we were on a budget so drove to the equally fabulous best western 5 minutes away by car and had some delicious and reasonably priced food. Yum! Additionally you could have a massage for 45 euros each and have a private jacuzzi for 95 euros each. The robes and slippers were a nice touch as was the tea and coffee facilities (see photos) people were friendly and helpful. MASSIVE shower, that was a highlight for me (sad I know) beautiful interior but sadly when we booked it we thought there was woodland to walk through but we had a panicked lady telling my partner not to walk on the small area of grass as someone was having a massage in the (garden) forest. we walked to the nearest shop in a busy but beautiful tree ladened road about 20 minutes away depending on how quick you walk. The area is not in town but if you and your partner want a relaxing timeless stay or girls want an enjoyable weekend away to relax. I would recommend this. They do a late check out at 12 too. Just book everything beforehand as places fill up.

Next time we strongly recommend to book the ForestLodge or Private Pavijoen if an endless view on nature and Forest is essential for you!
Some people need this, other people don't like an endless view... That's why we offer both !
Also book next time our unique MysticWater with the private ForestTeppanyaki. This is pure relaxtation with endless view to nature !
