After undergoing a $40-million renovation, Curaçao Marriott Beach Resort has reopened with a design that is clean and contemporary with hints of Dutch naval and nautical inspiration.
“The property’s Dutch Colonial Architecture was designed to complement and represent the long Dutch Heritage of the island while incorporating the open Caribbean Plantation elements of the Caribbean islands,” said Curaçao Marriott Beach Resort’s Hal Davis. “The signature Dutch gable roof line is immediately noticeable upon arrival along with the long white column hallways surrounded by a tropical landscape and Caribbean Sea backdrop.”
The 336-room hotel is positioned on six acres of oceanfront real estate overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The redesigned space, renovated by Olson Lewis to represent the latest design thinking from the Marriott Hotels brand, includes an open-air modern lobby with views of the turquoise Caribbean Sea.
Davis noted that the look and feel of the hotel is “classic Dutch Caribbean—open and tropical with naturalistic wood tones throughout and a passionate culinary focus.”
The color palette consists of soothing neutrals, accessorized with blues and turquoise to reflect the local Caribbean waters. Pops of orange and brown wood tones are woven throughout the property to mimic Earthy tones.
Each guestroom is equipped with private balconies, ocean or pool views, large flat-screen TVs, plush bedding and spa-grade bathrooms. Each room is adorned with artwork made from local recycled plastics.
