Secret Spots To Stay, Play, And Be Pampered!

Susan Campbell, Curaçao Nights


Curacao can be a colorful kaleidoscope of readily apparent attractions but it can also be an elusive labyrinth of secret treasures, hidden pleasures, and off-the-grid gems! You just have to know where to look!

Did you know that you could rent your very own private island on Curacao? You can! Isla Kiniw owned by Baoase Luxury Resort has outfitted it with absolutely everything one could need for a VIP villa vacation experience for up to 8 people! Snorkeling gear, canoes, private boat and other watersports equipment are also included, and Spanish waters are teeming with marine life! You can rent the villa with or without staff.

Playa Porto Marie offers far more than great beach: their surf and turf pleasures are totally divine, For snorkelers and divers there is a unique double reef for double the fun of exploring the vibrant marine life. For hikers, there are three marked footpaths just up from the beach -the Seru Matteo Trail, the History Trail and the Bird Trail.

Pampering & Rejuvenation
Experience 8- the new stand-alone spa oasis out in Sint Willibrordus is exceptional. The setting alone will have you in the Zen mode in no time. Gorgeous cliff-top hot tubs and a meditation pool looking out on the sea, and add the additional relaxation elements like The Forest Steam Room, The Igloo and The Sahara Sauna and you have everything you need for total rejuvenation. They also offer full service spa treatments and beauty services.
