Offering an Asian vibe in the Dutch Antilles, Baoase offers a welcome alternative from the standard Caribbean resort. The owners set out to bring back barefoot elegance and they succeeded—the fine dining restaurant is right on the beach, letting guests feast on gourmet fare and French wines with their toes in the sand. Many of the villas and suites have private pools, while the simplest rooms are just as lovely, with stone bathrooms (some of them outdoor) and silk bedding. There’s no spa, but a range of wellbeing services are offered in villas and suites or right on the beach.
In the Area
Baoase’s in-house tour guide takes guests on cruises and day trips to explore the main island and Klein Curacao (Little Curacao), on countryside tours to ostrich and aloe farms, secret caves, museums and art galleries, and to the historic inner city and harbor of Willemstad, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Watersports include scuba diving (there’s an instructor on-site), jet skiing, deep sea fishing, surfing, and swimming with dolphins at the Dolphin Academy. The island is also home to two scenic and challenging golf courses, Old Quarry and Blue Bay.
How to Get There
Beautiful atmosphere, great layout, very comfortable cabanas, nice rooms, good food, and friendly staff. Everything is clean and very well kept. Perfect for our honeymoon. The resort makes everything so easy from picking us up at the airport to renting a car (rental service comes straight to the resort). Downtown Willemstad is a short drive away. Out of all of the resorts I saw online for Curacao, this one looked like the most scenic and romantic. I was pleasantly surprised that it looks like the photos online.
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon in Curaçao. This resort has gorgeous scenery and the perfect atmosphere for a romantic vacation. The rooms were beautiful and kept very clean. The staff was very friendly and service was excellent. The best part were the beach chairs. They are covered with air mattresses with built in pillows and a fitted towel over it. This was so cozy! Perfect for me since I have a problem with my back and hip. The food was delicious. My only complaints would be dinner is expensive with small portions so we went out to eat for a couple of nights. The pool was too cold in the late afternoon & evening to use. The resort is close to Willemstad with plenty to do. Our favorite was the old Pietermaai district. We rented a car through the resort. I would definitely recommend Baoase and I would come back here. Feels like you're in paradise.
Baoase is a professionel organisation. It is situated on a beautiful location with extraordinary views, perfect well equiped beach villa's with very friendly and well organised housekeeping.
The maintenance crew is excellent and even made stairs with a handrail for my wife to go to our private beach.
Guest relations are good willing young people, but not yet upto international standards. We booked nevertheless a private boattrip and 2 other private tours, but without the promised towels, hotel snacks etc. etc.
At the end of our stay we wanted to pay by American Express but that did not seem possible. Amexco left us a message next day that Baoase does not work with Amexco cards with chip. Changing euro /dollar is not accepted by the hotel either. Guest are promoted to,give Grautuity of 5 -10% of the total invoice. This is considered "as customary". This may be so in the USA but $ 300 as gratuity (even without the hotelcost) is not so obvious in Curaçao.
The extra charge of $ 250 to my account for a late stay of 3 hrs. only, really shocked me.
We had a pick up at 15.00 pm. at the hotel in stead of 12.00 pm. There was no other reservation for the villa that day and night and we stayed 11 nights in total Management decided that the extra charge was absolutely necessary....
Overdue review! My husband and I have traveled to quite a few places and this resort is one of the best resort we have been to. For the first time ever we stood inside our suite for almost the entire vacation because we just needed to relax and be lazy. The staff members are so attentive and friendly, the place is so clean. We went there for our 26th wedding anniversary and they made the cabana on the beach even more romantic with candles and a big heart shaped with rose petals on the sand. The suite is even better looking in person than the pictures if you can even image that. Very private and relaxing time. I highly recommend this place!!!!
My family travels often to the islands . We came to Curaçao for the first time staying in a great resort which I will provide a great review later. However, we decided to visit and have lunch at a luxury resort known as Baoase. Very expensive , very beautiful , great lunch.
You blew it however and we will never stay with you. After spending over $ 250.00 on a “ light lunch “ , we asked and were told that it was okay to go cool off in the ocean water. We stayed in the water no more than 15 minutes . A young lady that must have been supervising the the beach restaurant area came to our table and rudely and disrespectfully treated me and my family saying we did not belong on “ their beach” and in “ their “ ocean lagoon” . It did not matter when I explained we had asked and were given permission to cool off in he water after the pricey lunch. We had planned on staying with Baoase Luxury Resort on our next trip , but yet, YOU BLEW IT for treating me and my wife and son this way . Please do not be the next family that spends this kind of money with Baoase Luxury Resort only to be treated terribly . Go to he Blue Bay Resort where it is awesome!
