Hotel Description

Pushing the conceptual boundaries is well and good, but for sheer pleasurableness, it’s pretty hard to beat a well-executed rendition of the classic Caribbean beach resort. Place it on a rolling Curaçao estate skirting a pristine white-sand beach, throw in a gorgeous spa with views of the sea and a championship golf course, and one starts to wonder just who keeps those faraway ice palaces and claustrophobic pod hotels in business, anyway. At Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort, there’s plenty of space, both mental and physical, for idle wondering — from the comfort of a serviced poolside cabana overlooking the Caribbean, on your room’s private patio, while dipping your toes in the warm turquoise water of their sheltered bay, and on it goes, one stress-dissolving, head-clearing corner of the resort after another.

The rooms are done in an airy contemporary style, all with patios or balconies and some with unobstructed sea views, but while the sleeping quarters are plenty dreamy, the best stuff lies outdoors. The beach here, lightly strewn with padded loungers and thatch-roofed parasols, is the longest on the island, set a little ways south of the more densely developed area up the coast. The water is clear and warm, and with no current to speak of, swimming or snorkeling is as easy as can be.

With several restaurants and a long list of leisure pursuits to choose from, the resort feels like a world unto itself — albeit one in quite a privileged location. Activities take in everything from pro-taught tennis lessons on the hotel’s clay courts to long days at the spa. And then of course there’s always cocktail service by the pool or sea — in short, everything you need for doing lots of happy nothing.

How to get there:

The drive to the resort from Hato International Airport (CUR) takes approximately 35 minutes. Round-trip transfers can be arranged at a cost of $53. Please contact CustomerService@TabletHotels.com for assistance with transportation.
