‘Dare To Explore’ Kura Hulanda Lodge and Beach Club

I accepted the Dare To Explore Kura Hulanda Lodge and Beach Club to see what’s new under the Curacao sun.

The prior owners of The Lodge lost their financial backing, so GHL purchased and reopened the property under the same familiar name.

Here’s the rundown.    

This is a huge 250 acre layout.

Here is a link to the Resort Map so you can follow along.

Let’s pull a James Bond and looking like Halle Berry we stroll out of the ocean and onto Playa Kalki Beach.  There are rooms to your left  and the Watersports and Dive Shop are on your right.

Ahead of you is the Kalki Beach Bar and GrillChristoffel Terrace and Sunset Lounge is a perfect rest stop for a cocktail.

Continuing our exploration we check out the smells coming from the Watamula Restaurant.   You can get a good look at the pool and the children’s playground from here.

Before you reach the lobby you will be go by the Fitness Center, Massage Pavilion, and Business Center.

After you pass the main entrance, lobby, and shop you are just a short walk from the  Garden View rooms and suites.

The tennis courts and Indian caves are quite a distance from lobby.  Grab the details when you first arrive.

Here are some of the changes that I liked.

There is large acreage but the resort has an intimate, small village vibe.

The beach barbecue has been reinstated and seems to be a hit.

The Watamula Restaurant is earning high marks for their ala carte meals.

I stayed in an Ocean View Terrace Suite on the 2nd floor.   Everything in the room was new, clean, and the furniture comfy.

The kitchenette now comes with a 4-chair dining table, range, refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee maker, and toaster.

Cookware, utensils, and dishware were all in great shape.

There is a full bathroom plus an outdoor shower.   The armchairs, tv, desk and king bed in the separate bedroom were all obviously new.

My terrace had 2 big loungers along with a table and chairs.  Enough space to have some friends over.

This is a relaxing resort with an attentive staff.   Lots of divers stay here just for the dive shop and its staff.   You can shore dive right in front of the resort.

Thanks how it looks from here

I think you will like the changes, I did.
