Lions Dive and Beach Resort sits amidst a palm-studded beach overlooking the clear waters of Curacao’s National Underwater Park. Built in the Dutch Caribbean style, this sprawling oasis of a resort offers a huge variety of room options. It’s located only 5 minutes away from Curacao’s capital city of Willemstad, home to a colorful array of Dutch colonial architecture, with numerous shops, bars, and restaurants within walking distance. The resort also prides itself on maintaining high environmental standards and immersing guests into its thickets of tropical foliage that sprout about the property, as well as offering sporty amenities.
There are three standard room types available for guests:
Run of the House (ROH) rooms offer a garden view, pool view, or street view, and feature either 1 King sized bed or 2 Double beds. They have either a shared balcony or a shared terrace.
Oceanview (OCV) rooms offer a partial oceanfront view, and are also equipped with either 1 King sized bed or 2 Doubles, and a shared balcony or private terrace.
Oceanfront (OCF) rooms offer a complete oceanfront view, and are equipped with either 1 King sized bed or 2 Doubles, and a private balcony or private terrace.
All three of these room types feature a private bathroom with a shower, air conditioning, ceiling fan, mini-fridge, safety deposit box, and cable TV.
24 Luxury Apartments are available, as well. Each apartment features 2 bedrooms: 1 Master bedroom with a King sized bed and private bathroom and shower, and a Second Bedroom with 1 Queen sized bed and 1 Single pull-out bed and a bathroom and shower. There is also a Sofa Bed in the living room, and so every apartment can sleep up to 6 people. Each apartment contains a fully equipped kitchen, air conditioning and ceiling fans, a cable TV, and spacious balconies with views of the infinity pool.
But, wait! There’s more! Lions Dive has 10 Luxury Lions Suites, each with a gorgeous beach and ocean view. The suites are perfect for a romantic getaway, as they have spacious private balconies with magnificent views of the Caribbean Sea and impending sunsets. Each suite has a Master bedroom with 1 King sized bed or 2 Queen sized beds, and a private bathroom and shower. There are also 2-Bedroom suites available, which include a Second bedroom with 1 Queen sized bed. All suites have a fully equipped kitchen, air conditioning and ceiling fans, and cable TV.
And last, but not least, Lions Dive has a Penthouse available for rent, which is located directly on the beach with a 180 degree view of the Caribbean Sea. It’s got a Master bedroom with a Super King sized bed, a rain shower for two, and a bath tub that overlooks the ocean, as well as its own gym facility. There’s a smaller Second bedroom for kids or visitors, which has a private shower and toilet. There’s a spacious living room area, a conference table for 6, and a television for presentations. Tickle your fancy?
Of course, you don’t have to be holed up in your wonderful rooms all day. Lions Dive has 4 bars and restaurants, a Body Beach Wellness Club, a 50 meter sports pool (and also sports and fitness classes), and a spa.
Right next to the resort is the Seaquarium and Dolphin Academy, which has various aquariums and interactive programs with sea lions, turtles, and sharks. The Dolphin Academy specializes in dolphin encounters and swims, and experienced divers may even opt for a dolphin dive. Reservations are recommended.
And so far as diving goes, the famous Stella Maris reef lies just beyond the Lions Dive beach. It’s a great shore dive that is also home to a wreck. But the resort’s dive shop, Ocean Encounters, allows divers the opportunity to dive the entirety of Curacao.
