These are the 5 Best Luxury Resorts in Curacao

If you’re planning a vacation to Curacao, a delightful stay at a resort is a must. Immerse yourself in luxury, and there’s no doubt you’ll forget all about your busy life. A luxury resort in Curacao often features a private beach, a gym for your morning workout, and one or more swimming pools. Opt for a room with a sea view, order a tasty cocktail, lounge on a beach chair, and your vacation will be perfect.

Tip: It can be super fun to stay in both a resort and a small boutique hotel during your vacation in Curacao. For example, spend the first few nights at one of these 5 beautiful boutique hotels and the last nights at a luxury beachfront resort. That way, you get the best of both worlds.

Kontiki is undoubtedly the winner when it comes to looks. The resort is filled with palm trees, and natural materials have been extensively used in its design.
