The $37 million renovation of the Curacao Marriott Beach Resort is set for completion by fall 2019. The 328-room beach hotel in Curacao is positioned on six acres of oceanfront real estate.
Upon completion, the hotel, which was purchased in 2017 by Piscamara Beach Resorts, will offer 328 newly reimagined guest rooms and eight suites designed by Mexico-based Arquitectura de Interiores.
The new look and feel features undertones of Dutch Naval influence and colonial elements woven throughout a clean, contemporary design.
Additionally, each guest room and suite will feature a host of amenities including private balconies featuring ocean or pool views, large flat-screen TVs, and spa-inspired bathrooms. Suites feature expansive living areas and sleeper sofas.
Award-winning Caribbean-born Chef Dino Jatiani, who previously owned the acclaimed Temptation restaurant in St. Maarten, was tapped to help develop and oversee the property’s multimillion-dollar food and beverage operation.
The new Curacao Marriott will feature eight distinct dining and drinking outlets, including a sushi bar, craft cocktail bar, breezy pool bar and onsite marketplace.
A new signature fine-dining restaurant C-Spice will feature a modern take on upscale Caribbean dining for breakfast and dinner. The menu will feature Dutch Caribbean, European and Latin American influences with fresh, locally caught seafood and hand-picked local produce to create exciting, ever-evolving flavors.
Guests will have the choice of dining inside or al fresco on the open-air terrace, and following dinner, enjoy a hookah and cigar lounge featuring a variety of premium rums and spirits in the adjacent courtyard. The property will cater to the meetings and conventions market with 9,000 square feet of functional outdoor and indoor meeting space. Options including the 5,000-square-foot Royal Ballroom for events up to 375 attendees, a 3,000-square-foot Queens ballroom and a botanical garden.
Additional enhancements to the property include an adult-focused lap pool joining a main family-friendly resort pool, state-of-the-art fitness center featuring the latest equipment, kids club and a walking path adjacent to the hotel.
Catering to health-minded guests, the property will also feature daily exercise classes, including yoga, Pilates, and pool fitness.
The hotel is located just 10 minutes from historic Willemstad, the island’s hub of dining, shopping, and entertainment and 15 minutes from Hato International Airport.
