Romance, adventures and unforgettable experiences: The new Sandals Royal Curaçao

It has been eagerly awaited: The Sandals Resorts International is now opening the new Sandals Royal Curaçao for bookings.

19 August 2021

An infinity pool with views of both the sea and the mountains, a floating restaurant and bar: the new Sandals Royal Curaçao, scheduled to open on April 14 2022, will offer this and much more. The new resort is now available for bookings!

Recuperation in the nature reserve

Sandals Royal Curaçao is set on 44 acres of land within the private Santa Barbara estate, an exclusive 3,000-acre nature reserve. It combines natural wonders such as desert, sea, mountains and coast with the resort experience. Here, couples can discover the beauty and geographical diversity of Curaçao. The island is known for its stunning scenery, pristine beaches, limestone caves and its vibrant city of Willemstad, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At the same time, guests enjoy the Luxury Includedholiday experience that Sandals Resorts are known for.

The Sandals Royal Curaçao is scheduled to open on April 14 2022 and is located only about 24 km from the airport. Its stunning location captures the allure of one of the Caribbean's most spectacular sunsets and offers guests awe-inspiring experiences. With 351 luxurious rooms and suites in 24 room categories, Sandals Royal Curaçao offers more luxurious all-inclusive options than ever before. These include two new Signature Suite categories, the Awa Seaside Butler Bungalows and the Kurason Island Poolside Butler Bungalows, complete with Tranquility Soaking Tubs, private pools, butler service as well as sporty and stylish MINI Cooper convertibles for guests to use free of charge to explore the island.

A place of discovery and exploration

Sandals Resorts International's executive chairperson, Adam Stewart, says that aside from the new destination, the sheer size of the private reserve surrounding Sandals Royal Curaçao allows for new adventures for guests. "At Sandals Royal Curaçao, guests can hike, bike and bring a picnic basket for days of discovery and special experiences - pure romance. And they can continue that spirit of adventure beyond our gates, where they will find a world-class destination with great restaurants, fascinating people, beautiful art and visitors from around the world. "We have invested an additional $72 million in expansions and improvements to complete the process of 'sandalizing' this already stunning property, and we can't wait for our guests to fall under its spell," Stewart said.

Infinity pool and Sandals' first floating restaurant

Sandals Royal Curaçao is home to the hotel chain's first "Dos Awa Infinity Pool" overlooking the sea and rugged mountain landscape, as well as The Duchess, Sandals' first floating restaurant and bar built from a 28-meter authentic Dutch ship. With nine 5-star global gourmet restaurants on site (eight of which are new and exclusive to Sandals Royal Curaçao), guests will be treated to international flavors from a melting pot of global cuisine, including an authentic wine and Dutch cheese bar. Couples can also dine on the go at three new beachfront gourmet food trucks offering traditional Curaçao dishes, Spanish tapas and Asian fusion cuisine, or grab a drink at one of the resort's ten unique bars.
