Baoase Luxury Resort, “BA” (representing the owners’ initials) and “OASE” (the Dutch word for “oasis”), is Curaçao’s newest hidden gem, just 25 minutes from Curaçao International Airport, that our Director of Sales & Operations – Jennifer recently had the opportunity to explore.
After a few days on the island, Curaçao proved to be a charming, unspoiled locale, rich in Dutch architecture and culture and not to mention – equipped with some fabulous duty free shopping. European inspirations embellish the island and add appealing influences, especially in the culinary sector!
Upon Jenn’s arrival to Baoase Luxury Resort, it was its boutique charm and romantic Balinese zen-like feel that made this property special. In fact, many of the interiors are actually imported directly from Bali, tastefully enhancing this peaceful retreat. With only 23 luxury oceanfront accommodations overlooking the crystal waters and pristine beachfront, one cannot help but feel that they are nestled within their own private “oase.”
Each suite or villa has a private plunge pool along with a beautiful, expansive space for outdoor dining, or perhaps simply for enjoying an afternoon cocktail. . .
Beachfront dining on-property has an authentic charm with a toes-in-the-sand option that seemingly can transform even the tensest traveler to a relaxed state enhanced by the warm Caribbean breezes.
The Sunday evening Asian-inspired dinner is a must try! The freshly prepared specialty sushi was fantastic and seemed to pair perfectly with the oceanfront views.
While dining on property is decadent, experiencing the local cuisine is also a must!
ID’s Insight: To experience some indigenous fare, dine at BijBlauw, a local favorite. Menu was simple yet original and the vistas of crashing waves certainly were a bonus addition. European influences came alive in delectable simplicity with a sampling of fresh bread, cheeses and of course freshly caught seafood.
Looking for an après dinner cocktail? Walk over to Miles Jazz Café, a jazz bar known for Caribbean cocktails and great live music.
With these hidden-gems just 10 minutes away from Baoase Luxury Resort in the Unesco-recognized old town of Willemstad, this is a perfect option for an evening to discover Curaçao!
