The 351 rooms and suites within Sandals Royal Curaçao sets in motion innovative ways to experience this Caribbean island with 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 Adam Stewart, executive chairman, Sandals Resorts. “This resort, a true labor of love years in the making with my father and our late founder, Gordon “Butch” Stewart, at the helm, 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.”

Sandals Royal Curaçao is located within the exclusive, 3,000-acre Santa Barbara estate, just 15 miles from Curaçao International Airport. The resort’s west-facing position on the southernmost part of the island intertwines nature with the resort experience, while offering one of the Caribbean’s most spectacular sunsets. Couples will discover the beauty and geographic diversity of Curaçao, known for its adventurous terrain, beautiful beaches, limestone caves, great diving sites and the capital city of Willemstad, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

 

The bi-level Dos Awa Infinity pool boasts views overlooking the Spanish Water and the rugged mountain landscape beyond. Guests can relax on poolside lounges or swim up to the bar for signature Curaçao cocktails with a view.
