Sandals Royal Curaçao Resort

The beautiful Dutch-inspired island of Curaçao was added to the Sandals brand in 2022. It marks the eighth island for the Sandals brand in the Caribbean region. World-famous for its vibrant culture, pristine beaches, and coves, Curaçao also boasts 65 spectacular dive sites and exotic marine ecosystems.

This all-new world-class Sandals Resort, which spans 3,000 acres including 44 expansive oceanfront acres along the Spanish Water Bay, will be completely transformed and re-imagined to initially include 350 luxurious rooms and suites, with a further expansion planned in the coming years. The resort also includes new expansive pools, a variety of Global Gourmet™ dining options, lavish accommodations such as Sandals all-new River Suites, and more.

There is a neighboring 18-hole, par 72 Pete Dye championship golf course with stunning ocean views and two onsite marinas. I’m personally most excited about diving here as it definitely lived up to the hype!  Some of my favorite diving has taken place around this island. 

 We also booked with a local excursion company and explored this island off property for two days.  We highly recommend adventuring off site and see what this beautiful island has to offer. It’s some of the most beautiful beaches and people we’ve ever met and seen.

The resort will also feature 38,000-square-feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space, the largest on the island. The amazing Curaçao climate awaits you, making it the perfect escape for you and the one you love.

Popular Curacao Tours

Below is a list of some of the most popular tours in Curacao. Allow us to price these through Island Routes prior to your arrival to guarantee your spot on the day/time you prefer.

  • Curacao Caves & Turtle Swim Experience

    Discover the natural beauty of the island and the spectacular scenery of Curaçao’s North Coast. The journey begins with a guided tour on an illuminated path through the Hato Caves, home of exquisite limestone formations, natural pools, and the elusive long-nose fruit bats. Then, visit the Shete Boka National Park to see the “Boca Table” cave, where the sea meets the land with force! Watch as the varying waves crash against the rocks that line the coast on this side of the island. If swimming with turtles is on your bucket list, you can check this off as you head to the panoramic vistas of Playa Piskado, for this once in-a-lifetime experience. After you’ve worked up an appetite, end your day with a bite into a delicious island lunch, served with stunning views atop a cliff-side restaurant at Playa Forti.

  • West Curacao Half-Day ATV Experience (Double Seat)

    With a high-powered ATV as your ride for the day, explore the west coast and stop at some of the island’s most iconic spots. Take on the Curaçoan terrain and the western side of the island on this half-day, fun-filled adventure. Enjoy the sights of the island’s wispiest, white sand beaches and a stop at the popular town of Willibrodrus, home to the pink flamingoes.

  • Klein Curacao Catamaran Cruise Beach Break

    Sail the brilliant Caribbean waters on your way to a secluded offshore island, just off the coast of the mainland. From the crystalline coast of Curacao to the uninhabited island of Klein Curacao, sail away to your paradise for the day. The choice is yours, swim in the pristine waters, walk along the powdery white sand beach, or snorkel alongside friendly sea turtles. Either option wins you a delectable bite into a local, traditional, barbeque lunch. Later on, visit the iconic pink lighthouse, a remnant from the 19th century, or peruse shipwrecks lost in time on this island rich in history and adventure.
