- BAOASE LUXURY RESORT

Island bliss elevates to its very limit in the Master Villa – Baoase’s pearl and the house that would be the start of Baoase. The villa’s breathtaking panoramic views can reach all the way to the colorful buildings of Willemstad.
2. SANTA BARBARA BEACH & GOLD RESORT
Spread out over 2,000 acres, Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort is the place to stay if you like your beach vacations to be busy. You can golf a Pete Dye-designed course, kayak around local inlets, play tennis on one of only four Hydrogrid clay courts in all of the Caribbean, and get scrubbed down with Curacao liquor and brown sugar at the spa….all without leaving the hotel property. An ocean breeze flows freely through each of our Caribbean resort rooms, bringing with it an authentic island spirit. This spirit comes to life in the island-inspired detailing in each room. The earthy palette and organic textures blend seamlessly with the expansive vistas available in each room. Our Curacao suites celebrate their island surroundings through balconies overlooking the Spanish Water, Caribbean Sea, or the lush resort gardens. Each suite also serves as a gateway to the endless resort and island activities available on Curacao. Hit the court at one of the Caribbean’s premier tennis facility. Play 18 holes at the Pete Dye-designed Old Quarry Golf Course. Cool off at the resort’s pool and splash area. Or simply soak up the sun along the crystal clear Santa Barbara Beach, a white sand paradise unlike anywhere else on Curacao.
3. RENAISSANCE CURACAO RESORT & CASINO
Marriott’s most colorful hotel, Renaissance Curacao Resort & Casino sits within the Technicolor town of Willemstad, and was painted to match the Caribbean—all corals and turquoise blues. There’s plenty to keep you entertained onsite, from perusing the hotel’s boutiques (including Mont Blanc, Armani Exchange and more) and indulging in the five bars and restaurants to trying your luck at the on-site casino. But we guarantee that the hotel’s infinity pool will be your favorite memory from your trip: order the grilled mahi mahi and a watermelon mojito as the sun sets over the sea. Edging the shimmering ocean, Renaissance Curacao Resort & Casino offers scenic luxury in historic Willemstad. Immerse yourself in our refreshing hotel accommodations and stylish comfort with plush furnishings, room service, complimentary bottled water and scenic city or ocean views. Lounge along pristine white sands on our private beach and explore the many nearby shops, restaurants and bars surrounding our resort.
4. SCUBA LODGE & SUITES

Scuba Lodge is ideally located if you are looking for a base to discover the best of Curaçao. We’re right next to the ocean and just a short walk away from touristic attractions such as the Queen Emma Bridge (pontoon bridge), Plasa Bieu (Old Market), and De Handelskade.
