Golden Rock Dive Center
Habitat Curacao Resort is an oceanfront dive resort ideally situated at a private estate on the southwest coast of Curacao. Guests enjoy a relaxing atmosphere, complemented by the gentle Caribbean breeze, soft ocean sounds and spectacular sunsets. The resort features an oceanfront restaurant, bar and pool, and offers a free daytime shuttle service to town.
Guests can snorkel or dive, lounge by the infinity pool, enjoy the oceanfront dining or their favorite drink at the bar. The resort also provides wireless Internet service for those who bring their laptops. A daytime shuttle service is available to take guests downtown to Willemstad, the historic capital and a UNESCO World Heritage site, where shops, museums and restaurants line the streets and there is lots to see and do. Guests can also choose to take an island tour or rent a vehicle to explore the island on their own.
Most come for the diving, and Easy Divers at Habitat Curacao Resort offers some of the best diving on island. This full-service, PADI Gold Palm and Instructor Development Center provides boat dives daily, beginner to instructor diver certification, digital photography and camera rental, nitrox, 24-hour unlimited shore diving and more.
