Looking for the perfect location for a meeting in the Ardennes?

Daft Hotel is a place for artists and tourists, for influencers and budhists.

Contemporary and quirky. Contemporary design, hidden in the Ardennes forest.

Grab yourself a craft beer from our bar (you do that at home too, right?), discover the home cinema after a busy day of meetings or take a splash in the indoor pool with underwater music. Gather around our fire pit for an aperitif and enjoy our delicious, local catering, prepared with love by our in-house chef!


Have you had enough of classic hotels with little inspiration and no real soul?

Then choose Daft Hotel, with creative spaces, lots of greenery and above all a very personal approach by our team.


Your team + Daft Hotel = A unique story

From 10 guests or more it becomes interesting to rent the entire hotel.

Welcome home, far away from home!


And what else?

You can best understand the vibe of the place if you also know our story.

Next to the hotel you will find Daft Music Studios , one of Europe's largest music recording studios.

Day in day out, international artists record their albums in the impressive studios (e.g. Sigala, Henri PFR, Goose, Bazart, Stephen Malkmus & the Jigs, Universal France, Daan, Jef Neve, De Mens, Blanche, Hooverphonic, …). In order to achieve the best recordings, the context has to be right.

Good vibes, good food and inspiring spaces.... we take that very seriously! Also for your event or seminar.

And... step into the footsteps of legends and organize your own meeting or special event in Daft Studios, it's possible!


In short: Daft Music & Boutique hotel, a new kind of hospitality!


What do we offer?

  • 14 rooms with ensuite bathroom
  • possibility to expand with 4 rooms in the Artist Penthouse above the Daft Studios
  • from May to September extension with a pop-up glamping for another 24 people (= camping with a golden edge!)
  • creative & inspiring meeting rooms
  • home cinema, which can also serve as a break out
  • wellness with heated indoor pool and sauna & a wood-fired dutch tub in the open air
  • for larger groups or special events: expansion possible to the 200m2 recording hall in the Daft Studios

Wonderful relaxation

In December 2023 I organized a workation at Daft Hotel for the second time. Together with 7 entrepreneurs I was able to relax and work on my business in peace. Daft Hotel has everything to make this happen: nice meeting room, cozy lounge, ideal location in the green, soft beds, a refreshing dip in the pool, good food,... and a super nice vibe. Highly recommended!

An original place to have a good time as a team

Our team met in this young, friendly and musical place to hold a mini seminar and celebrate Christmas a little early.
The organization, infrastructure and above all the Daft team lived up to our expectations.
I highly recommend having a daft experience.

Hello Bernard, great to have had you with us. The heated dutchtub in the garden, after an inspiring day of work and a visit to the Studios, must have felt good, especially in a wetsuit with the snow outside. It was tempting in any case! Thank you for stopping by and always welcome to Daft! And happy holidays from now on! Tina

Unforgettable Company Weekend at Daft!

Our company chose Daft (Hotel & Glamping) as the location for our annual company weekend, and what a good decision it was!
From the moment we arrived, we were blown away by the hospitality, breathtaking location and impeccable service.

Daft is located in a beautiful piece of nature. That soothing atmosphere immediately made us relax and disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
There is a wide range of team building activities in the area and we have not been idle.
E-scoot, kayaking, adventurous walks, a local brewery visit or enjoying the sauna. Something for everyone…
The catering was also absolutely excellent. We were spoiled with delicious dishes prepared with love and attention.
Wraps, Pasta, BBQ, Asian, ... plenty of choice and all very tasty and well prepared! We enjoyed every bite.

We cannot emphasize enough how wonderful our stay at Daft Hotel was.
It was a weekend that brought our company closer together, gave us the chance to relax and enjoy nature.
We definitely recommend Daft Hotel to anyone looking for an extraordinary place for corporate events, team building or simply a magical getaway.

Hello Anne, Thank you for these nice words. Super cool that you enjoyed it so much. Book the glamping in October - we thought it might be a bit too chilly, but apparently you could still enjoy it to the fullest! I will certainly pass on the compliments to the chef and the rest of the team and see you next time :) Welcome Home @ Daft

The perfect place to really meet colleagues

Only words of praise for Tine and the fantastic DAFT team. From the first contact, the vibe of thinking along and planning along was just right. We stayed at the DAFT hotel with about 65 colleagues last weekend. What a luxury to have the entire hotel and the fantastic staff at our disposal. After half a day of brainstorming about AI and what this will mean for our jobs as consultants in the inspiring studio room, we headed into the High Fens. One group went for a walk and another group went to Sniper for a paintball session. After these activities it was wonderful to come home to the DAFT hotel. Colleagues spread out over the wellness, hot tub, pool room, bar, cozy living room...no one really cared that it was raining. This fantastic location creates an instant group feeling, even though everyone is doing their own thing. Also big compliments to the catering. Everything was delicious. The open bar concept also creates a very relaxed and casual atmosphere. There was dancing until the early hours and after breakfast with little eyes everyone left for home very satisfied. Same problem here: what the hell location are we going to find for next year?! Thank you team DAFT!

E&C loved Daft!

A bull's-eye for our annual company event where we bring together our employees from all over the world. Guidance and service before, during and after the event by Tine, Stijn and their staff was fantastic, inspiring and flawless. For the event itself, which was conceived as a mini Woodstock, an atmosphere had been created that exceeded our wildest expectations. Writing and recording a song together is highly recommended as team building. And thanks to the ultra-professional way in which this was supervised, recorded and mixed, the end result has become a stunning song with video clip, a unique memory of a magical two days. The only point of criticism: what on earth are we going to have to come up with next year to match this?

Inspiring and successful writers weekend.

We spent three days at Daft with our aspiring screenwriters and coaches for the first Streamz Academy. Everything was arranged down to the last detail, from reception and catering and everything we needed for our sessions. The beautiful surroundings and welcoming staff provided the perfect environment for our workshops.

Our marriage

We celebrated our wedding on March 25 at the Daft Hotel and it was unforgettable. Attentive listening from Tine and JF for our desires and expectations. A nice and smooth organization and a lot of discretion on the part of the staff throughout the day. A perfect meal that will delight young and old as well as for breakfasts! We felt at home and our expectations were more than fulfilled. A big congratulations to Tine & Stijn for creating such a beautiful place and such a magical universe, we can't wait to come back!

An awesome venue for our leadership event

Daft Hotel was the perfect location for our leadership training. The inspiring setting, both indoors and outdoors, with such a variety of spots to choose from for each part of our programme made it a great succes. We loved having conversations in the lounge as wells as around the fire under the stars. And we made the most of the home cinema with amazing audio to share inspirational video's. The DAFT team did their utmost to serve us. Great hospitality with a personal touch.

Feedback from Daft Boutique & Music Hotel on this review:

Oh Nanke, what beautiful words. You describe very well what we are trying to offer here: a personal approach and an inspiring setting, where it is wonderful to "come home". Always welcome for your next leadership program! Regards, Tine

From Thursday evening to Sunday afternoon, we left Offsite with the entire Credix team and were welcomed in the Daft Hotel.

Everything was in tip-top order and we highly recommend this!

Great place for your team!

We stayed at this hotel for three days for our team building. Everything went perfectly: smooth communication with the hotel, delicious catering, helpful personnel, etc. The hotel has a lot to offer (nice activities in the area, a quiet place, swimming pool and cinema, etc) and they helped us with every question. Would recommend!

Amazing premises for a team building of 40 to 50 international colleagues

Tine and her team were absolutely amazing in welcoming us to their premises. We organised a fully disconnected 3-day event mixing business workshops in the studio, bamboo construction activities in the garden, e-cycling on the spa circuit, photoshoots, as well as barbecue and party time – a true blast – and quoted by many colleagues as the company’s best team building ever! Rooms and food quality were also up to par with the rest of the experience. Thank you again for both your very professional, pleasant and proactive approach to the whole event organisation.

Feedback from Daft Boutique & Music Hotel on this review:

Hi Gregory, what a lovely review :) We are happy to hear that you had one of the best company teambuildings ever here at Daft. That's exactly why we do it for: offer an amazing experience in terms of stay, food, activitities and follow up :) Have a nice day and be our guest any time! Tine
