Located in the southern Caribbean Sea, the island of Curacao dazzles with beautiful bays, colorful coves, and shimmering waters along white-sand beaches. It’s perfect for anyone, whether you’re in search of a relaxing retreat or an adventurous getaway. Plus, Curacao is outside the hurricane belt, making the island ideal for off-season travel.

While Curacao has bright, bold buildings all over, standing out among the colorful, Dutch-colonial architecture is the newly renovated Curacao Marriott Beach Resort. Here’s what to expect at this gorgeous resort.

Something New

The Dutch-inspired Curacao Marriott Beach Resort boasts an all-new look for your warm-weather retreat. While your favorite authentic Marriott comforts remain, the resort’s renovated rooms are both elegant and vibrant, thanks to their island-style makeover. When booking, you will have 336 rooms to choose from, each offering unrivaled amenities that cater to every couple, family, or honeymooner. Take note of the luxurious, open-air lobby with touches of Old World European charm. The hotel grounds have also been renovated with freshly designed public spaces, as well as an adults-only pool.

The ocean-front resort is full of wonderful restaurants and activities to ensure you get the most out of your Caribbean getaway. Located just a short drive from the airport with convenient access to the city center, the resort is right off the beach at Piscadera Bay. Each room has a balcony, meaning there’s no shortage of stunning views.

Wining & Dining

Aside from an exquisite room-service menu, Curacao Marriott Beach Resort features a diverse selection of tantalizing bites, some prepared by celebrity chef Dino Jagtiani. The Caribbean restaurant C-Spice has a relaxing atmosphere accompanied by delicious tapas and pizzas, all served with a view of the Caribbean Sea. At the Zala Gastro Pub, relax and unwind with handcrafted cocktails. The pub also offers gourmet small plates, spicy Asian bowls, and shared platters. If you’re a sushi lover, you will appreciate the Izakaya Bar Sushi. The restaurant serves Japanese-inspired cuisine and an assortment of bold wines and flavorful beers. Whatever your appetite longs for, you can have it. Enjoy sandwiches and baked goods at Papiamento Marketplace, poke bowls and fish tacos at Salty Iguana, and a lively bar and variety of fresh bites in the Great Room.

Living the Good Life

There is no shortage of things to do at Curacao Marriott Beach Resort. Check out the two swimming pools, which include the main pool and the adults-only pool. When it’s time to push your boundaries, dive a little deeper with the on-site dive operator. The nearby reefs are stunning and a must-see. Certified divers can even dedicate some time to reef cleaning. In the morning, try a free yoga session or Pilates class, or head to the resort’s top-of-the-line fitness center. When you’re ready to seize the day, the concierge can help you get started on booking tours and excursions. After a day of adventure, relax and renew at the on-site spa with special massage treatments, or take a stroll along the nearby walking trails.

Special Events

There are unique events year-round at the Curacao Marriott Beach Resort. Enjoy a Christmas brunch, New Year’s Eve party, or Easter brunch, where celebrity chef Dino Jagtiani prepares mouthwatering culinary dishes. If you’re a music lover, be sure to visit the resort during the Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival, which is held next door. Enjoy good tunes while living the good life.
