Curaçao defies the imagination. Nestled in the heart of the southern Caribbean, it’s part desert, part tropical paradise. And the island’s heart is just as eclectic as the breathtaking landscape. It’s a cultural crossroads where declarations of love are spoken in four different languages, and where the quintessential flavors of Dutch, Caribbean, Latin, and Creole cuisine are fused into the everyday.
It’s this extraordinary uniqueness that makes the island the perfect match for a wedding or honeymoon at Sandals Royal Curaçao. This escape is where amazing comes together to offer brides, grooms, and their guests an incredible assortment of amenities, accommodations, and culinary options — and you’d expect no less from Sandals Resorts.
Whether it’s an elopement, an intimate wedding, or an epic wedding gala, the weddings team at Sandals Royal Curaçao knows how to help couples plan the wedding of their dreams, from the ceremony to the reception, and even pre-wedding festivities and post-wedding activities for guests.
For the bride and groom, the honeymoon begins the moment the bouquet is tossed, while their guests can dive into a vacation like no other, with so much see and do.
Let’s start with the Dos Awa 2-Level Infinity Pool, the centerpiece of this unbelievable resort. Guests can gaze at the endless azure sea from this pool within a pool. They can relax in a private cabana, float on a lounging platform designed for couples, or swim up to the bar for a signature Curaçao cocktail.
Once they’ve worked up their appetite, they’ll find all-new flavors day and night. Sandals brings the flavors of the island and the world to 11 extraordinary dining experiences at the resort.
A vibrant, sophisticated setting calls for an exhilarating dining experience. That’s just what guests find at Zuka, where the culinary traditions and flavors of Central and South America are deliciously united. Evoking the ambience of a café along the canals of Amsterdam, Kaanal offers a sweet break during the day. Premium coffee is served, as are a selection of pastries, desserts and made-to-order Dutch sweets like Stroopwafels and Puffertjes. Kanaal also does double duty as a wine and cheese bar, with a range of delicious Dutch cheeses perfectly paired with premier wines by the bottle or by the glass.
Their gastronomic experience continues with southern Italian favorites at Pietra, European fusion presented on a sleek, minimalist canvas at Vincent, the freshest sushi at Gatsu Gatsu, and the highest quality grain-fed beef at Butch’s Island Chophouse.
Curaçaoans’ love their Truk’i pans—good trucks that are a staple of the island’s nightlife—and they’ve found a home at Sandals Royal Curaçao, with three food trucks serving traditional Curaçaoan fare, Spanish tapas, and Asian fusion right along the beach.
For those hungry for more, Sandals takes dining even further with their first-ever Island Inclusive Dining program. Guests can venture into town to experience local flavors at some of the island’s top-rated restaurants, with cuisine that ranges from cool to classic.
