Curacao Marriott Reopens After $40M Renovation
By Caribbean Journal Staff
The Curacao Marriott Beach Resort has officially relaunched following the completion of a $40 million renovation project.
The 336-room hotel has been renovated “to represent the latest innovative design thinking from the Marriott hotels brand,” according to a statement from the property.
That includes a new “clean and contemporary” design, with a mix of Dutch colonial architecture and “plantation-style elements.”
“As we continue to re-invent concepts and grow our portfolio across all product categories, we are grateful to be partnering with such an established and respected hospitality brand such as Marriott Hotels for a product of this caliber,” says Rob Smith, Executive Vice President of Aimbridge Hospitality, which manages the resort. “Proud to see that our vision for Curaçao has finally come to fruition, we hope to continue this momentum with Marriott International in the Caribbean.”
The renovation is part of a regional push for Marriott to transform its Caribbean hotels. The Curacao relaunch comes as Marriott has announced plans to open its first-ever all-inclusive resort in Curacao.
Noted Chef Dino Jagtiani is leading the culinary program at the hotel, including a fine-dining eatery, C-Spice, along with several bars.“At Marriott Hotels, we strive to create spaces where our guests can feel their most inspired,” says Manny Rappenecker, VP, Marriott Hotels. “The reimagined Curaçao Marriott Beach Resort more than lives up to that promise – melding our signature clean design aesthetic with local touches inspired by the beautiful Caribbean surroundings to give guests the ultimate space to relax and recharge.” Please click here for the original article by Caribbean Journal
