What brings visitors to Blue Bay today?
This picturesque resort offers beach access, on-site restaurants, and a renowned golf course. The Bay, now a comfortable retreat with four unique hotel sites, has had a colourful past. First developed in the 17th century as the Dutch-owned Blaauw Plantation, it survived European wars, the era of slavery, and even a pirate attack in 1800. Throughout its history, it was renowned for its beautiful gardens. Today, visitors can enjoy the tropical scenery, improve their golf game, dine at fine local restaurants, and explore underwater caverns.
In addition, Blue Bay offers a range of beachfront eating spots including the fine AzZuro restaurant, which serves breakfast, lunch, and supper seven days a week. Diners can enjoy Caribbean and Mediterranean-themed cuisine—from seafood pasta to grilled steak—in a lush natural setting. Its cozy beach tables make for perfect romantic dinners, while its spacious patio is ideal for group celebrations.
For those who want to stay, Blue Bay includes plenty of housing options, from beachfront apartments to build-on-demand designer homes. Of special note are the Birdie, Eagle, and Albatross designs. These spacious homes are perfect for golfers—built on reserved lots near Blue Bay Golf, they also come with three free years of golf membership. With the purchase of a tropical Indigo Garden villa, buyers can join the Blue Bay rental pool and receive free use of resort facilities six weeks a year.
As well, apartments and luxury penthouses feature breathtaking views of the beach, and many lots are still available for development. Since Curaçao gives real estate owners attractive tax benefits and the security of an established legal system, these properties are a great investment.
With its gently sloping terrain, the golf course remains a perennial favourite. Hotel residents receive a 20% discount on all golf packages, plus free playing time from 9:00-9:30 AM. Open all year, the driving range has 16 hitting stations, a putting green, and a chipping area. Its Golf Academy provides classes for different skill levels, plus a special course for children ages 4-12.
For divers, the resort combines diving lessons with guided tours to the famous Mushroom Forest, to the breathtaking Blue Room cavern and to views of an abundant marine life.
