Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort sits on a 2,000-acre plantation and is only a few steps away from the Caribbean Sea, with Curacao’s gorgeous beaches and crystal-clear turquoise waters waiting for you to discover.

Rooms at Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort

Choose from a variety of spacious and airy rooms and suites, all with a unique view of the beautiful gardens or the sea and the scenic sunsets, best enjoyed from your private balcony. The island-inspired decor perfectly reflects the natural beauty of Curacao.

Food & Drink

Take in this stunning setting while dining at the Medi restaurant, which offers international cuisine in an exclusive setting, or, for an idyllic island dining experience, linger over a meal directly on the shores of the Caribbean Sea. Have snacks and drinks by the pool at the Splash Pool Bar & Grill – as well as delicious local cuisine such as keshi yena (stuffed cheese), we recommend the Curacao Sunset cocktail.


Cool off in the Caribbean sun with a dip in the pool or simply relax poolside or on the sands of the resort’s private beach. Speaking of relaxation, treat yourself to a luxurious spa day, with a variety of massages, facials and body treatments to choose from. The spa’s treatments are inspired by the ancient traditions of the Arawak people, the first inhabitants of the island.

If you prefer something more active, practice your swing at the top-rated Old Quarry golf course, or take private lessons on the excellent clay courts at the tennis centre.

Activities at Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort

As well as offering some of the best beaches and sunsets in the Caribbean, Curacao also has some of the best water sports, especially snorkelling and shore diving – and this resort is one of top places on the island to make the most of them, making it perfect for adventurers. There is kayaking, scuba diving, stand-up paddle boarding, dolphin-spotting trips and more, as well as hiking and biking trails. For children, the resort’s kids camp offers plenty of fun activities to keep them entertained.
