Lodge Kurá Hulanda and Beach Club Earns Certification

WILLEMSTAD, Curaçao – December 18, 2006 – Lodge Kurá Hulanda and Beach Club has joined its sister property, Hotel Kurá Hulanda Spa and Casino, on the prestigious Leading Small Hotels of the World list. This esteemed acclamation is highly sought after and only a handful of the hundreds of hotels who apply qualify.

Hotels that apply to be a Leading Hotel must be a deluxe, five-star property and pass a comprehensive inspection of 1,500 specific criteria that range from how the reservations phone call is answered to having the proper hangers in the closet to whether or not guests’ shoes are paired and arranged neatly by housekeeping. The anonymous evaluation covers all aspects of accommodations, service, cuisine and facilities.

“We were confident in the submission of our request for review by the Leading Small Hotels of the World, as the Lodge was built with only the highest standards and requirements, and our staff are trained to provide the utmost in customer service,” stated Peter Heinen, president of Project Kurá Hulanda. “It’s not only that Leading Hotels requires exacting standards and superlative quality, but we also require and expect that of ourselves.”

Only the world’s most distinguished properties are admitted to the Leading Hotels of the World.

Officially opening its doors in the first quarter of 2006, Lodge Kurá Hulanda and Beach Club offers 74 villas, suites and guestrooms, most featuring living room areas, kitchenettes and balconies or patios with a choice of breathtaking views of enchanting gardens or the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. Dining options at the Lodge include the open-air restaurant, Watamula, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner; Christoffel Restaurant, which offers guests a panoramic view of the sea while being served lunch or dinner; or the more casual Kalki Beach Bar and Restaurant for a refreshing beverage and lunch. Additionally, the Christoffel Sunset Lounge offers a magnificent ocean vista and is the ideal place to watch the sunset while enjoying light snacks and drinks with friends.

Located on the west end of Curaçao, Lodge Kurá Hulanda and Beach Club provides a serene getaway where guests will feel like they are on their own private island. An onsite dive shop, state-of-the-art and fully equipped fitness center, oceanfront pool and private beach provide a range of recreational activities for guests to choose from.
