By: Caribbean Journal Staff - May 31, 2016

With more than 30 beaches; a location just beyond the hurricane belt; and a fascinating Dutch-influenced heritage, Curaçao is a must for travelers in search Caribbean with a serving of culture on the side. But it’s so much more than that — from dozens of world-class dive sites to a burgeoning foodie culture, Curaçao is increasingly on the radar of travelers, particularly in the United States. And with several non-stop flights from the US, there’s no better time than now to plan a visit than right now. If you’re headed to the Dutch-Caribbean isle, take our tips for some of the best places to stay – the best Curacao hotels.


Baoase Luxury Resort With just 23 suites and villas, this south-side boutique is perfect for vacationers in search of high-end tranquility. Elegant Bali-inspired rooms (some with outdoor tubs and showers); a beach complete with it’s own tiny island; and a superb restaurant make Baoase a standout. This is the best hotel in Curaçao, bar none.

Curaçao Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara Beach & Luxury Resort Go all-inclusive or room-only at this   350-room resort that has all the bells and whistles you’d expect: three pools; four restaurants; a spa; an 18-hole golf course; and, of course, an inviting swath of white sand.


Avila Beach Hotel Just outside Willemstad, past meets present at Curacao’s oldest continuously operated hotel, combining an 18th-century mansion with 150 sleek and modern rooms. Excellent meeting facilities make this a good choice for business travelers, while twin beaches and an infinity pool please the tag-alongs.

Kura Hulanda Sonesta

Sonesta Kura Hulanda Village & Spa Smack in the center of Willemstad, this unique hotel is in a restored colonial village complete with scenic courtyards, sculpture gardens, and even a museum. Its 82 rooms are furnished with antique reproductions; and two pools, a pair of restaurants and a spa complete the package.


Kura Hulanda Lodge and Beach Club The Sonesta’s sister hotel, also a GHL, is a classic resort set on a beautiful white coral beach. About 30 minutes from the airport, this is one of the island’s great hideaways, also boasting a top-level dive shop.


Floris Suite Hotel & Spa Ditch the kids and head for this adults-only 72-room resort about 10 minutes’ drive north of town.
