Sandals Royal Curaçao, Santa Barbara - Curaçao

Where amazing comes together

Nestled in the heart of the Leeward Antilles, on the coast of a tiny, beautiful island where natural and cultural wonders connect to create a beautiful mélange unseen anywhere else. Sandals newest all-inclusive resort in Curaçao is where the natural romance of this intimate island comes alive. You’ll see it in the line where the desert landscape gently slopes into the azure ocean. Waters that invite you to dive in and explore what’s beneath. You’ll experience it in the way the expansive pool extends into the endless Spanish Water, encouraging you to imagine forever. In the place where Tafelberg Mountain meets the horizon, inspiring peaks that beckon you to climb to new heights and absorb stunning sunsets. And how the wind catches a sail, propelling adventures yet to come.
