2009 World's Best Diving & Resorts: Sunset Waters Beach Resort


Sunset Waters Beach Resort Curacao Sunset Waters, located on a western bluff, is not only one of the best places to watch a Curacao sunset but also to enjoy the view of the calm Caribbean Sea and one of Curacao's finest beaches from the open terrace restaurant. And for guests preferring to watch the bright orb sizzle into the sea in an even more intimate setting, any one of the private balconies makes a perfect spot.

Sunset Waters Beach Resort Curacao is a cozy boutique hotel where guests are certain to make new friends, rekindle romances, create everlasting memories or simply recharge their batteries. But the real secret of Sunset Waters is the attentive service from their friendly staff and management. It seems as if no wish is too great.

With amazing panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea from oversize oceanfront rooms, the calm and tranquil waters, a marked snorkeling trail and eco-friendly diving, this truly is the "Life Aquatic." Sunset Waters' on-property dive shop, Sunset Divers, provides some of the best diving in Curacao--literally on their doorstep. There, divers discover what lies below the brilliant turquoise waters: rivers of Creole wrasse, spotted eagle rays, seahorses and macro life on every coral head--truly a photographer's paradise.

With over 40 dive sites to choose from, Sunset Divers provides access to the very best Curacao has to offer, including the one and only Mushroom Forest, known for its acres of pagoda-shaped star coral formations. The energetic dive crew provides complete dive-gear service, gear setup, cleaning and storage. Sunset Divers' two dive boats, Day Dreamer and Day Tripper, take divers to the best dive sites on the island as well as the sloping wall of the house reef, which is almost always teeming with activity.

Divers can find their land legs in a variety of ways--choosing from the selection of available tours and excursions on Curacao, watching the world go by with a refreshing pina colada served beachside or poolside, or enjoying a meal in the ocean-view restaurant accompanied by one of Curacao's striking sunsets. And with almost every sunset painting a different picture on the horizon, every evening feels just as special as the last.
