"Hyatt Regency Curaçao Golf Resort, Spa & Marina was opened in 2010 at Santa Barbara Plantation.
With the new Hyatt hotel and the accompanying championship golf course, world class spa facilities, hydro clay tennis courts, marinas and the popular Barbara Beach, we expect Curaçao to draw more international attention for its great potential as a prime tourist destination.
Up to this stage, we have invested over US$160,000,000 in the project. The Santa Barbara area covers an area of over 1,500 acres of pristine water front and expansive hillside property surrounding the waters known as Spanish Water to the west and the crystal clear Caribbean Sea to the south.
It goes without saying that the 350-room Hyatt resort hosts a plethora of modern luxury accommodations and amenities to satisfy its guests from the moment of arrival. The Hyatt and the championship golf course, designed by world-renown Pete Dye, will be well received. The project also includes premier residential communities such as Seru Boca Estate, Terrace Homes, Marina Village, Terrace Estates, Nieuwpoort Estates and various custom home sites.
We believe that Curaçao has a positive future and that more resort projects will be developed on the island in the future. Predominantly local people were hired to work on the construction of the Hyatt, one of the largest buildings ever built on Curaçao. The majority of the subcontractors were also local. Hyatt’s management has hired local employees to be trained to fit the job description in the various disciplines at the hotel.
We are grateful for the broad support that we have received for the realization of what will become a new breakthrough for the development of the island’s tourism industry.
