Centrally Located. Beachfront. Authentic Soul.

These are the key elements that make up Avila Beach Hotel and that draw travelers to return again and again. There are many additional reasons to consider Avila Beach Hotel when planning your vacation to Curacao and selecting the perfect resort for your needs. So, why Avila?

Centrally Located, Yet Beachfront
The hotel is centrally located in the lively Pietermaai neighborhood. Although it is near the UNESCO city center of Curacao, the property does have a private beach. The perks of having the best of both worlds! You’re on walking distance to downtown and the resort also offers free shuttle service to downtown twice a day; morning and afternoon.

The Personal Touch
The Avila Beach Hotel is known for its personal touch. It is not the beautiful beach or that comfortable hotel room that makes the hotel, it is the staff, who is treated like family. In fact, the majority of the staff has been a member of the Avila family for many years. Plus, most employees are locals, so they also have the best tips for you to explore the island! The hotel has high standards to provide the best quality and service. In fact, approximately 45% of guests are repeat visitors and many of them have a special connection with the hotel staff. It’s not without reason that the hotel slogan is "Feel the Warmth". It’s the warmth of the sun but also due to the warmth of the hotel employees.

Two Private Beaches
Curacao's beaches are one of the reasons you hop in that plane! The Avila Beach Hotel offers not one, but two, white sandy beaches. Both beaches are protected from the wind and waves by offshore breakers and consequently offer calm water to swim in. These circumstances make it especially ideal for small children to float in the calm ocean and for you to enjoy the turquoise waters or discover the beautiful reef while snorkeling. Also, a fresh-water infinity pool offers a tantalizing alternative to relaxation on the beach.

An Authentic Soul
Being the oldest operational hotel on Curacao means Avila Beach Hotel has quite some history. The hotel has an authentic soul which begins at the main entrance; the original building of the hotel called The Belle Alliance; named after “Auberge de la Belle Alliance”, the alliance against Napoleon. It later served as the country residence of the English Governors and nowadays it is the key to the heart of the hotel; the lobby. Without history, there would be no future, which is why the Avila Beach Hotel is also home to the on-site Octagon Museum.

Focused on Community & Sustainability
One of the goals of the Avila Beach Hotel is innovation and sustainability. The hotel tries to save energy and recycle as much as possible and has earned the international "Travelife Gold Award" in 2013 and also the local "Sustainable Innovation Award 2013", which was then awarded for the first time on Curacao by Business Platform Environment.

The Best Place to Relax
The Avila Beach Hotel is a perfect place to relax. It is quiet and peaceful, no crowded beaches, lots of space and various lounge areas. Worry less, feel great and let Avila assist you in achieving those meaningful goals in life. In addition to the exquisitely relaxing atmosphere, the hotel offers sunset yoga sessions, the latest TechnoGym equipment at the beautiful Avila Fitness Center and healing hands at the Cloud Nine Spa.

Delightful Oceanfront Food (& Drinks!)
Avila Beach Hotel offers with its two open-air restaurants, Restaurant The Pen and the Schooner Terrace, diverse all day menus complemented by a stunning ocean view. Taste the Caribbean with local and regional ingredients with a unique Avila twist, served with a warm smile in an authentic location. Refresh with your favorite drink and savor tasteful bites for breakfast, daytime, sunset and into the balmy, tropical night.

The Pietermaai Neighborhood
The vibe of Pietermaai is a mix between Soho and the Meatpacking District in New York. It offers lots to do, see and taste. Cozy bars and restaurants ideal for a progressive meal or bar-hopping, plenty of colorful buildings and history around every corner await you. Let this authentic, yet vibrant, district surprise you. You haven’t been to Curacao if you haven’t visited this part of the island!

Three Unique Hotel Wings
Most hotels have one style and that’s it. Avila Beach Hotel offers multiple! Hotel rooms here are well designed, comfortable, have modern technology and make guests feel looked after. The three different hotel wings offer completely diverse hotel rooms matching various needs to enjoy Curacao to the fullest. From the modern Octagon wing to the Caribbean Ocean Front Blues wing to the classic La Belle Alliance wing, whichever hotel room and apartment you choose will make your Curacao vacation a truly memorable one.

Deep Love for Culture & Arts
The island is about much more than just sun, sea and beach. Curacao culture is oh so rich! Enjoy classical concerts in the La Belle Alliance concert hall with numerous recommended musicians from around the world. Enjoy theater shows, stand-up comedy or great concerts by famous artists, both local and international (Nick Cannon, Percy Sledge, Paebo Bryson, Paul Neubauer to name a few). When staying at the Avila Beach Hotel on Curacao, you will definitely notice the art. Some of the works challenge you to be interactive, and others will simply feed your creative soul. Most art pieces you’ll see at the hotel are from talented local artists to support and recognize the cultural side of the island.
