Curaçao is one of the most famous destinations in the Caribbean. Known for its hospitality, the island always leaves travelers with good memories from the warm welcome of the locals. Now, visitors have a very promising option to stay on the Dutch Caribbean island. Sandals Resorts has just opened its 16th Sandals Resort, Sandals Royal Curaçao, a luxury all-inclusive resort company’s debut in the Dutch Caribbean.

The hospitality company marked its venture into the vibrant culture and colors of Curaçao with an enchanting Grand Opening Celebration at its new resort with the island’s most captivating performers – including the anticipated return of Carnival to the destination for the first time in three years.

As Sandals Royal Curaçao informed, the resort works to set in motion entirely new and innovative ways to experience the charming Caribbean island via all-new Sandals ‘Firsts’ while reinforcing the company’s island-first approach to tourism and its impact on the local ecosystem.

“Our vision for the Sandals Royal Curaçao experience was inspired just as much by the island’s natural beauty and colorful culture, as it was by our guests and the many ways they can engage with this amazing destination,” said Sandals Resorts Executive Chairman Adam Stewart in a press release.

“This resort is a testament to the transformative power of tourism via next-generation experiences that not only up the ante on all-inclusive vacations but celebrate the local people, flavors and terrains every step of the way,” he added.

Sandals Royal Curaçao is located within the exclusive, 3,000-acre Santa Barbara estate – just 15 miles from the Curaçao International Airport. Its signature, west-facing position on the southernmost part of the island authentically intertwines nature with the resort experience, while capturing one of the Caribbean’s most spectacular sunsets. Here, couples can discover the beauty and geographic diversity of Curaçao, known for its adventurous terrain, pristine beaches, limestone caves, spectacular diving sites, and vibrant capital city Willemstad, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

With an astonishing garden and ocean views along with the Caribbean warmth of the Dutch Caribbean, Sandals Royal Curaçao promises to create a welcoming setting for guests, without distractions, throughout the resort’s 351 rooms and suites.

On property, Sandals Royal Curaçao boasts eleven culinary concepts, including eight restaurants – seven of which are new to the brand and only available at this resort – along with three beachside gourmet food trucks and 13 bars.
