*Lux on a Little Island*
When people talk about a Caribbean getaway, the little island of Curacao is usually not top of mind. But it should be, especially if you have already “been there, done that” on the more well-known islands.
Curacao is one of the “ABC” islands along with other Netherlands Lesser Antilles islands of Aruba and Bonaire. It sits conveniently outside of the hurricane belt, just 50 miles east of busy Aruba. The island may be best known for its capital Willemstad, a mini-Amsterdam which delivers its own brand of Euro-Caribbean charm with its pastel-colored Dutch colonial architecture lining a gorgeous bay.
Yes, it’s a bit off the beaten path but well worth seeking out for its vibrant culture, art scene, great food, warm hospitality and that gorgeous turquoise water!
I just had clients return from a special birthday getaway to Curacao at the under-the-radar lux Baoase Resort.
A peaceful, romantic retreat set on Curaçao’s south end, this resort is designed to magically wash away your every care. Tucked away in tropical foliage are 23 suites and villas. A hidden haven of relaxation, barefoot elegance, and impeccable service, the rich woods, Balinese-inspired surroundings, and Asian stonework add to the Zen vibe. Find restoration in the mineral-rich infinity-edge pool or an in-room massage, and explore the streets of colonial Willemstad or the idyllic private beach.
Here are some pictures that my client Tiffany took while staying at Baoase in a Beachfront Villa with Private Pool. Her food pics are to die for!
They did a snorkeling safari around the island, scuba dived, had massages, drove ATV’s, spent alot of time in their private pool and generally had a blast. My contacts at the hotel made sure even their room was decorated for her special birthday, and delivered a passion fruit mousse birthday cake and champagne on birthday morning. The evening was topped off with a spectacular multi-course dinner in a private gazebo on the beach!
