Kontiki Beach Resort & Ocean Encounters

If you are looking for an exceptional blend of nature and a relaxing atmosphere, you will find it at the brand new Kontiki Beach Resort.

 

Each hotel room is built out of authentic Brazilian hardwood and has deluxe accommodations that include: flat screen TV, wireless internet, air conditioning, refrigerator, and a safe. You have a choice of an ocean view or the lusciously sculptured tropical garden, full of colorful birds.

 

Let the unique lay-out and the natural materials with which the resort has been built overwhelm you. Space development and overgrowth as well as architecture and nature blends into one another smoothly. 

 

The sea sets off directly outside your residence. The crystal clear Caribbean Sea water finds it way around all the accommodations.  This unique seawater pool, running through the entire resort, has been inventively designed especially for this. Step into the water from your own doorstep. You can rinse off in one of the freshwater showers.

 

The Kontiki Beach is the best known beach of the Caribbean and the setting of many television series. You are never more than a minute or two from anything. You can have quiet time as you sit and relax or enjoy a massage on the beach. If you prefer more activity you will find diving, snorkeling, and swimming. The resort is situated directly at the National Underwater Park. And for their younger guests they offer "water-kids".

 

Want to check out the many sites around the island? You can conveniently rent a car in their lobby.

 

The resort has two restaurants, both situated on the beach. They offer a tasteful variety of dishes, both local and international. Drop by the Snack-bar or the Pasta and Pizza-hut for a quick snack or a takeout meal.

 

Watch a spectacular sunset while sitting at the bar sipping your favorite cocktail. Are you looking for something more romantic? On the adjacent beach, intimate and romantic hideaways, are alternated with lounge spots and temperamental nightlife.



DIVING

Ocean Encounters Diving is a PADI 5-Star IDC dive shop. They maintain a highly professional operation adhering to PADI and Curacao Coast Guard safety standards. Their certified technicians inspect and maintain their rental gear, which is replaced every 18 months.

 

The diving in Curacao is known to be some of the best. At Director's Bay you will find some of the most amazing creatures, sea horses, frogfish, and a large octopus also calls this home. Healthy reefs are teaming with life.

 

If you enjoy wreck diving, don't miss the Wreck at Saba, a tug boat sitting perfectly upright and covered in coral inside and out. Sport Diver's Magazine rates the Superior Producer as one of the Caribbean's best wreck dives. A cargo freighter sitting upright at 100 feet and surrounded by watchful great barracudas.

 

There are also other special dives, the Mushroom Forest, Dolphins, and more. You tell us what you want to do and we will make all of the arrangements. So many dives you will have to keep coming back!
