Hilton is expanding its Caribbean Caribbean portfolio with a new all-inclusive in Curaçao, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The new Mangrove Beach Corendon Curaçao Resort, Curio Collection by Hilton resort is slated to open in September 2021, the product of a conversion of the former Corendon Mangrove Beach Resort.
It’s home to four pools, a private beach, and nine dining outlets, one that includes pool and beach bars, specialty eateries and a rum tasting lounge.
That’s along with a fitness center and a waterpark with six waterslides.
“As we continue to grow our all-inclusive portfolio throughout the Caribbean and Mexico, we are thrilled to partner with Corendon Hotels & Resorts and open the largest all-inclusive resort on Curaçao,” said Pablo Maturana, managing director of development, South America and Caribbean, Hilton. “With more than 35 spectacular beaches, Curaçao serves as an ideal destination for tourists looking for a pristine natural environment, and we couldn’t be more excited to offer guests yet another option when booking their travel to the Caribbean.”
The 399-room resort is part of a growing all-inclusive portfolio for Hilton in the Caribbean, one that most recently expanded with the new Yucatan Resort Playa del Carmen on the Caribbean coast of Mexico.
It also marks a return to Curaçao for Hilton; Hilton had departed the destination in 2019 when the Hilton Curaçao was rebranded as a Dreams all-inclusive resort.
“The signing of Mangrove Beach Corendon Curaçao Resort marks a major milestone for the brand as we add the latest all-inclusive property to Curio Collection, a growing portfolio of more than 100 one-of-a-kind handpicked hotels and resorts around the world,” said Jenna Hackett, global brand head, Curio Collection by Hilton. “Nestled in a protected nature preserve with a gorgeous private beach, this beautiful resort will boast stylish accommodations, elevated dining experiences and premier services and amenities, all coming together to offer guests a truly unique travel experience.”
Later this year, Hilton will opening another Caribbean all-inclusive with the new Hilton Cancun.
“We are very pleased to partner with Hilton, a globally-recognized leader in hospitality, and benefit from Hilton’s global brand awareness and award-winning guest loyalty program,” said Atilay Uslu, founder, Corendon Group. “Starting September 2021, we look forward to welcoming Curio Collection by Hilton to the beautiful island of Curaçao. Our goal is to provide the very best service to our guests and Hilton Honors members and to show that Corendon’s hospitality is an added value for the Hilton brand.”
The property will participate in Hilton Honors, the company said.
