There’s no getting around it: Curaçao simply defies the imagination. The island thrives on the unexpected; the desert-meets-the-sea landscape, the worldly mix of languages, the fanciful flavors of Dutch, Caribbean, Latin, and Creole found in both the culture and the cuisine.
So, while sun, sea, and serenity are a part of the Curaçao experience, the island — and Sandals Royal Curaçao — offers guests more opportunities for exploration and exhilaration than can be imagined.
Let’s begin at the resort, where guests can explore the estate on a Dutch bike, and not just the 44-acre sanctuary Sandals Royal Curaçao inhabits, but the entire 3,000-acre Santa Barbara Estate. They can get their game on with tennis on courts lit for night play, get in a game of beach volleyball, or head to the water for paddleboarding, kayaking, Hobie® Cat sailing, or windsurfing.
For scuba enthusiasts looking to go deep, Curaçao is renowned for its exceptional diving spots. Amazing underwater reefs teem with color, and sunken ships have birthed their own little ecosystems. Certified divers can discover it all, with up to two dives a day included—and that covers top-of-the-line equipment and gear, Newton dive boats, and the best PADI®-certified guides.
For those seeking shallower water, take a plunge in the amazing 2 level Dos Awa Infinity Pool, and enjoy a cool cocktail at the swim up bar! Guests who need a more soothing atmosphere can seek sanctuary in the Red Lane® Spa.
Epic Adventures Await
With its chill vibe and dramatic scenery, experiencing Curaçao is an absolute must. Guests in top-tier suites can grab the keys to a MINI Cooper and get out to explore, visiting places like Shete Boka National Park, where the fury of nature is unleashed; or head to Christoffelberg and climb the island’s highest peak for amazing views.
There are also excursions that range from rugged to relaxing, all available through Island Routes. Guests can tour Curaçao’s historic plantations, sail aboard a luxury catamaran, or even take a romantic sunset cruise. They can drive an ATV across the terrain of the island’s west coast, snorkel in Caracas Bay, or embark on a guided tour by e-bike through Willemstad’s colorful streets.
Indulgent Comfort Amidst Exotic Landscapes
At the end of the day, guests can retreat to their elegant sanctuaries. The Kurason Island Suites overlook an exclusive heart-shaped pool and lush private island garden, with private sun decks leading to the zero-entry lagoon pool. And the Awa Seaside Bungalows provide an intimate seaside experience, with private pools and sun decks overlooking Spanish Water.
With their appetites most definitely worked up, guests can satisfy their palates at eight delectable restaurants and three casual beachside food trucks where guests can savor delicacies from around the world — traditional Curaçao fare, Spanish tapas, and Asian fusion.
A journey to Sandals Royal Curaçao transcends the conventional; it’s a voyage into a world where every moment is a testament to the extraordinary. Help your clients experience it all by calling 1.800.545.8283 or your Business Development Manager, or visiting taportal.sandals.com.
