welcome at blooming

blooming is more than just a hotel, a conference estate, three restaurants, an event location, and a beach pavilion. blooming is a place to grow and flourish, where you can savor honest and delicious food from our own garden, sleep soundly on a sustainable and natural bed, find inspiration in the surroundings, relax in nature, and leave recharged. It’s a place where you’re truly seen, and you depart with a warmed heart from genuine hospitality and remarkable encounters with other people. Timeless on the uninterrupted path from forest to sea, from dune to garden. blooming is an unexpected moment of recognition.

In over 70 years, blooming has evolved from a ‘Volkshogeschool’ in Bergen into three beautiful places to eat, sleep, celebrate, and gather for business.


from Volkshogeschool to blooming

The origin of blooming dates back many years. It originally started as a Folk High School, a place where people from different walks of life were connected. Connecting people is something that can still be found in the blooming DNA to this day.
