Set within Willemstad's UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kura Hulanda comprises eight blocks of lovingly restored 18th- and 19th-century Dutch homes in the vibrant Otrabanda quarter. The villagelike complex includes 80 one-of-a-kind rooms, the Museum Kura Hulanda, a casino, spa, several restaurants, and a free-form swimming pool fed by a man-made waterfall. The owner, Dutch entrepreneur-philanthropist Jacob Gelt Dekker, has spared no expense, paving the narrow lanes with granite cobblestones from Rajasthan and installing vintage Dutch-colonial lanterns salvaged from Java. The 80 rooms have hand-carved furniture, custom-woven fabrics, and marble-tiled bathrooms. The buildings' two-foot-thick walls, which are decorated with hand-stenciled patterns, buffer any outside noise. If you do venture off-property, the Queen Emma Bridge connecting to Punda, the old section of town, is just a five-minute walk away. And beach lovers can relax: A free shuttle connects twice a day to Dekker's other holding, the Lodge Kura Hulanda & Beach Club in Westpunt.
