Lovely Curacao written by Taylor Harker | Posted on June 6th, 2012 PausePlayPlayPrev|Next Two "amigos" go fishing with just a line and hook. Guests check in for Dutch Antilles Express' inaugural flight to Curaçao. Our late-night arrival to Hotel Kura Hulanda, a Small Leading Hotels of the World property. Rooms at Hotel Kura Hulanda are large with elaborate furnishings. Although the desk is quaint, the sofa looks much cozier...maybe a little snooze before getting back to work... Tall, beamed ceilings add to the already open spaces of the large rooms at Hotel Kura Hulanda. Hotel Kura Hulanda is made up of separate buildings and markets—a village featuring cobblestone paths littered with flower petals. Hotel Kura Hulanda's village square, surrounded by restaurants and Dutch Colonial buildings, features tables perfect for a mid-morning brunch. The Eco Pool at Hotel Kura Hulanda is a real treat, for sure! The Eco Pool waterfall at Hotel Kura Hulanda... ...and the view from the other side of Hotel Kura Hulanda's Eco Pool waterfall. Hotel Kura Hulanda's village square is truly inviting. And on to the beach, where the Caribbean breeze promises to keep your clients from getting too hot. Your clients will get an education with their show at the Dolphin Academy. Simply paradise. On today's menu: an incredible meal at a truly authentic local restaurant. Now tell us honestly—wouldn't you rather be here? Your clients are sure to enjoy a tour of Dinah Veeris' Herbal Garden—she's so full of knowledge and ready to share. Or have them take a "safari tour" of the Ostrich Farm, instead. The floating bridge connects Willemstad's markets and downtown areas. The Dutch Colonial architecture and vibrant colors of Curaçao are absolutely beautiful. The lobby bar at Renaissance Curaçao sits just next to its casino, a great place for nightlife. Rif Fort sits seaside, providing incredible views with its mix of past and present. While the fort remains in historical condition, the inside courtyard features great shopping. Downtown Willemstad gets all dressed up at night. The island life. A makwakwa is a type of bird that leaves its nest every morning, not to return until it has found food to bring home to its family.
