Caribbean Room With a View: Curacao’s Santa Barbara Beach Resort

As room views go, a vista of the shimmering Caribbean is enchanting but expected.

Guests in Sea Traditions rooms at Curacao’s Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort, however, get three times the bang for their balcony: Tropical panoramas that include not only the Caribbean but the natural beauty of Spanish Water Bay and the limestone formations of Table Mountain, creating uninterrupted water views in three directions.

Secluded from the resort’s main areas, Sea Traditions room also run adjacent to the first hole of the Pete Dye-designed Old Quarry Golf Course, and come complete with upgraded amenities and butler service.

So you might say that booking one of these posh sanctuaries is a “fore”-gone conclusion. (Sorry, we couldn’t resist.)
