Kura Hulanda Lodge and Beach Club, GHL


The Kura Hulanda Lodge has a spectacular location, in a secluded part of the island, on a small cliff overlooking the Caribbean Sea. This luxurious small resort is set in 250 acres on the western most point of the island. The resort has a small beach where everyone can enjoy the warm, clear ocean. The Lodge offers guests a wide choice of activities, facilities and amenities – not to mention the chance to unwind in peaceful surroundings. The resort is just a few years old and offers guests excellent accommodation, with all the modern conveniences, designed and decorated in a typical Caribbean way. We have visited Kura Hulanda Lodge several times, including the initial building stages, and we can personally recommend this very impressive, luxury resort. The rooms and suites are modern and chic with a Caribbean feel and have large patios and balconies - and some genuinely "panoramic views". The gym has a superb view, worth a visit, even if you have no intention of "working out". The accommodation is hidden amongst the tropical gardens giving guests a feeling of space and privacy – difficult to achieve in a modern resort. The resort has an excellent dive centre - Curacao is famous for its diving and snorkelling - divers and snorkellers will find everything they need. The resort is 30 minutes from Curacao's Hato airport and about the same to Willemstad. There is complimentary scheduled transportation to Willemstad - a fascinating city and a UNESCO heritage site. The Lodge offers excellent accommodation, many activities and services, and a wonderful location, for guests to enjoy a wonderfully relaxing experience.


     
                             This excellent, luxury resort is in a quiet, secluded part of the island - West Point.
                         Set in tropical gardens with a great location overlooking the beautiful Caribbean Sea.                  
                                    Kura Hulanda Lodge has a wide choice of high quality accommodation

Diving & Snorkelling

The Kura Hulanda Lodge is near West Point, the north west tip of the island, close to some of the best dives sites on Curacao. Being close to the open ocean, the area attracts some larger species. There are boat trips to various sites, including those difficult to access from shore. Boats go to Curaçao's Mushroom Forest at least twice per week and to Klein Curaçao, a small, deserted island where you can dive and enjoy a barbecue on the beach.
West Point has many excellent dive sites nearby - one of the best "Alice in Wonderland" is just off shore. Curacao is famous for its excellent reef - some of the best diving and snorkelling in the world - and the fantastic freedom of shore diving - dive when you like and pretty much where you like. Snorkellers will enjoy the shore diving sites as much as the divers. Air for shore diving is "unlimited" – as much air as you want. There are over 38 shore diving sites on the calm south west coast, ideal for snorkellers, as well as divers, as the reef is very close to shore. See the diving and snorkelling pages - links on the banner above - for more information about the fantastic diving and snorkelling on Curacao. To make the most of this freedom – to dive, snorkel and explore the island - we recommend visitors to Curacao hire a vehicle. We can arrange vehicle hire at a lower rate than you would pay on island. We work closely with the dive centre at Kura Hulanda - on the beach - a PADI five star centre, offering a range of PADI courses plus equipment to hire or buy. Guided dives and boat dives are available. The custom built dive boats are comfortable and well equipped for the very short ride to the sites. Boats take very small groups, usually 6 - 8 divers and snorkellers. At most sites there will be just you and few (new) friends - very relaxed and comfortable. However, boats do get booked up very easily.

Booking your diving, vehicle hire or other services with us, will save you money and is part of an ATOL protected holiday itinerary.
Any service you book with us will be ready and waiting for you on island - avoiding any possible disappointment.
