Hilton Curaçao debuts new executive floor rooms, lounge

Hilton Curaçao resort completed its executive floor renovations, introducing 34 new executive guestrooms, three suites and an executive lounge displaying ocean views. With this fifth floor makeover, the 196-room beachfront Hilton Curaçao resort now boasts both the newest and only executive floor on the island.

Located on a stretch of white sand beach on the edge of the Caribbean, Hilton Curaçao resort welcomes guests to a new executive floor experience said to have been built upon the hotel's history. Led by Miami-based DSI Hospitality design firm, the new executive floor design draws inspiration from the island of Curaçao itself, as well as the building's original style, which blended authentic Curaçao elements with contemporary modernist architecture. While integrating these earlier design principles with more current colors and patterns, the designers delivered a space that reflects Curaçao, its natural surroundings and the sea.

The new executive floor rooms and suites boast new bedding, furniture and residential feel. All executive floor guestrooms and suites are outfitted with the Hilton Serenity Collection of amenities featuring plush bedding, high-definition LCD flat screen television, alarm clock with MP3 player connection, high-speed Internet access and Peter Thomas Roth bathroom products.


The new neutral wood-toned furniture reflects tropical character, while redesigned bathrooms offer stone vanity, porcelain tile, glass shower and upgraded fixtures. New closets with a hospitality unit including an under counter refrigerator, and subtle lighting adds the final touch to the rooms' decor.

Executive floor guests will also have access to the new executive lounge offering daily continental breakfast, light snacks and beverages.

The renovation is part of a larger scope of major projects by individual hotels above standard annual capital expenditures across the global portfolio of Hilton Hotels & Resorts, the flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide. Beginning in 2011, the projects currently total more than $3 billion during a three-year period.

The beachfront Hilton Curaçao resort is set on 23 acres of landscaped grounds. All 196 guestrooms and suites, including accessible rooms, rooms for guests with allergies and brand new executive floor rooms, offer private balcony, ocean or island views, and the Hilton Serenity Collection of amenities. A new executive lounge offers daily breakfast, as well as snacks and beverages throughout the day. Leisure-seekers can take advantage of the on-site Gold Palm PADI certified dive center, or enjoy the center's water sports activities.

Other offerings include: private beaches, swimming pool and the Color of People Spa. There are also a children's pool and a Kidz Paradise activity center. For business travelers and event planners, Hilton Curaçao offers over 4,000 square feet of meeting space with capacity for up to 450 guests, and a Hilton Meetings complex with boardroom, six meeting rooms, plus a business center.
