Slumber Party: Floris Suite Hotel and Spa, Curaçao


In all the Caribbean, there may be no other island that embraces LGBT travelers with quite the enthusiasm of Curaçao.

A constituent country of the Netherlands located off the coast of Venezuela, Curaçao sports a laid-back, free-spirited vibe to go with more than 30 stunning beaches ideal for sunning, swimming, snorkeling, diving and just about anything else your imagination can dream up.

Curaçao boasts more businesses that are members of the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association than any other Caribbean isle, but our favorite is the Floris Suite Hotel and Spa, site of this year's Pride.

According to Jurandy Regina, sales and marketing manager of the Floris, "On Curaçao, we greet LGBT travelers with open arms. The 'live and let live' mentality creates an atmosphere that makes everyone feel welcome. Curaçao is a safe island where you can easily rent a car and explore at your own pace, and the Floris is the most captivating hideaway on it."
