This will mark the ninth island destination for the brand in the Caribbean region. The new Sandals Curaçao will initially include 350-luxurious rooms and suites stretched along the Spanish Water Bay and the Caribbean Sea, with a further expansion planned in the coming years. Formerly the Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort, part of a broader 3,000-acre development, the resort will be completely "Sandalized," a process set to begin in 2021. 

Conceptual plans for the new resort include adding key elements for the signature Sandals experience, including new expansive pools, a variety of gourmet dining options and lavish accommodations, including a Sandals first--River Suites. Guests will also have access to the neighboring 18-hole Pete Dye championship golf course, two onsite marinas and 38,000-square-feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space, the largest on the island.  

World-famous for its vibrant culture, pristine beaches and coves, Curaçao also boasts spectacular dive sites and exotic marine ecosystems. With year-round temperatures of 80 degrees, it's touted as the perfect anytime-escape.

I can't wait until this new resort opens--Curaçao has been on my travel to-do list for ages. Knowing Sandals Resorts, the experience will be the perfect mix of all-inclusive and island adventure.

Who else is excited for this new development?
