Curaçao Marriott Beach Resort reopened today after undergoing a $40 million renovation financed by Piscamar Beach Resort B.V. Managed by Aimbridge Hospitality, the 336-room hotel is positioned on six acres of oceanfront real estate overlooking the Caribbean Sea.
The redesigned space is aimed at becoming the ultimate Caribbean destination for the active traveler who enjoys diving and swimming, alongside relaxing and enjoying the Caribbean island's famous tropical weather, according to hotel executives.
“As we continue to re-invent concepts and grow our portfolio across all product categories, we are grateful to be working 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. "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. With our consistent regional growth in markets such as Puerto Rico, St. Thomas and St. Croix, Curaçao was a natural next step in our expansion plans and we look forward to seeing the success of this crown jewel in the Antilles region."
The design of the hotel is clean and contemporary with hints of Dutch naval and nautical inspiration throughout the property. This includes Dutch Colonial Architecture combined with Plantation-style elements – welcoming guests to an open-air modern lobby with incredible views of the sea.
Award-winning Caribbean-born Chef Dino Jagtiani is responsible for opening and refining all culinary experiences on property, including a fine dining restaurant called C-Spice and multiple bars including a craft cocktail bar and pool bar. The C-Spice restaurant features Caribbean fare with hints of European and Latin American flavors.
"With an increase in the number of tourism arrivals from North America to Curaçao last year, we see the demand rising for a top-notch hospitality experience on the island," said Hal Davis, director of sales & marketing at Curaçao Marriott Beach Resort. "The reopening of the resort introduces a unique Dutch-Caribbean full-service resort experience, and we look forward to creating memorable moments for guests visiting the island for the first time."
