Papagayo Beach Hotel
Jan Thiel z/n
Willemstad, Curacao
Dutch Caribbean

Distance from hotel to Willemstad, 7 miles (11 kms). Distance from hotel to Hato International Airport (CUR), 13 miles (21 kms).  

The first of its kind on the island of Curaao, Papagayo Beach Hotel is making a name for itself by bringing the elements of design and hospitality together in an exquisite setting facing the Caribbean Sea. This sprawling property looks out over the glittering Jan Thiel Bay, its manicured grounds in colorful contrast against its clean, white lines. The ultra modern feel continues throughout the hotel's interior, each room is styled in a minimalist dcor, yet with all the amenities you require on hand. The same applies to accessibility of the surrounding area, where everything you need, from (grocery) shops to spa and wellness facilities, is within walking distance from the hotel. Get your early morning workout at the adjoining fitness center before strolling down to the Papagayo Beach Club for breakfast. Spend the rest of the morning catching up on your reading underneath its swaying palm trees in between taking dips in its infinity pool. The Beach Bar is open all day, providing continuous service straight to your lounge chair. After lunch, seek refuge from the island heat by booking a massage at Laman Spa & Wellness or trying on new swimwear in the shopping plaza. By the time happy hour rolls around, your biggest concern will be choosing which cocktail to order! Once the sun sets, Jan Thiel Village turns from a beach haven into a vibrant mlange of lively clatter coming from restaurants, the pleasant buzz of different music styles and the optimistic ringing of those trying their luck at the nearby Diamond Beach Casino. Making your way back to what is certainly one of the most stylish hotels on the block is a feeling of pure class!
