Apple Leisure Group strengthens Caribbean presence with new resort management deal in Curacao
Group announces first Dreams® Resorts & Spas property in the island of Curacao
NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pennsylvania (May 13, 2019) – AMResorts®, an Apple Leisure Group® (ALG) related brand, today announced a new resort management deal bringing the lauded Dreams® Resorts & Spas brand to the island nation of Curacao. The property, owned by Lionstone Development and formerly known as Hilton Curacao, will undergo a $15-million-renovation before re-opening in December 2019 as Dreams Curacao Resort, Spa & Casino.
“We’re very pleased with the Caribbean’s current momentum and expect this trend to continue for the foreseeable future. Considering ALG moves two out of every 10 U.S. travelers headed to the Caribbean, and the fact that the Curacao Tourism Board has succeeded on attracting more American visitors than ever before, now is the time for owners to invest in the island’s all-inclusive market,” said Javier Coll, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer of ALG. “We’re looking forward to introducing our very first Dreams property in the country and are confident our firm’s proven track record and unmatched expertise will continue fueling our growth throughout the region.”
Located in Piscadera Bay, Dreams Curacao Resort, Spa & Casino will be comprised of 197 rooms and suites, each with a private balcony and other luxury touches meant to resonate with couples and families. Upon reopening, the resort will feature access to two private white sand beaches, two culinary concepts, a luxury spa, state-of-the-art fitness facilities, a corner shop and café and more.
Dreams Curacao Resort, Spa & Casino will offer the brand’s signature Unlimited-Luxury® vacation concept, which covers all on-site dining and service options, including gourmet a la carte dining offerings, 24-hour room and concierge services, an unlimited premium beverage program, daily refreshed mini bar, daytime activities and live nighttime entertainment all without wristbands.
This latest deal brings AMResorts’ resort portfolio to 64 resorts, plus an additional 10,000 rooms currently under development. The brand is a recognized leader in the luxury all-inclusive sector, possessing industry leading global sales, marketing and brand management platform, and a portfolio of over 21,000 rooms under several award-winning brands in Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and Spain.
