Back in September 2011, Efteling and Rabobank set up a competition for a child under the age of 12 to design the 22nd themed room for the Efteling Hotel.  The winner of the competition was Diede Kusterman, aged 10 from Zundert, who designed the ‘Gilded Suite’.  It is themed around a safe, just like the large safe/chest which can be found in the park:

If you have visited the park before, you may be familiar with that chest, as it has a cash machine on one side of it.  Best looking cash machine I’ve ever seen.


The room, in my opinion, and also in the opinion of a few other Efteling fans, isn’t the best of the themed rooms.  It does look a little bit like a steam punk submarine, however it also has quite a lot of class to it, the kind of class that we all associate with Efteling.
