Offbeat: Divorce Hotel


It had to happen. Hotels are, after all, second homes, where a lot of us go to to celebrate important milestones like weddings, honey moons and family reunions. An enterprising Dutch hotelier is adding one other life event to that list: Divorce. With the number of people wanting to untie the note on the rise both on this and the other side of the Atlantic, Jim Halfens saw a gap in the market he couldn’t resist capitalising on. Drawing on a background in marketing as well as a stint at a law firm, he opened Divorce Hote which so far has helped more than 16 couples divorce.
