Overview



The Avila Hotel is a luxury beachfront resort on the Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao, which has received many awards from global travel platforms such as TripAdvisor and the prestigious Fodor's Travel. Honorable titles such as ''Fodor's Choice Hotel'', ''Top Performing Hospitality Business'' and "Caribbean's Coolest Hotel for 2014" have been bestowed onto the Avila Hotel.

The Avila Hotel has been in continuous business for over 6 decades, far more than any hotel in Curaçao! Our longevity attests to the hotel's rich history and a sense of timeless elegance. At the same time it's a burst of energy that contains elements of a bygone age delivered in a modern package. The Avila Hotel offers a high level of personal service in a contemporary and stylish environment.

The Avila Hotel stands for hospitality. Whether for business, romance or simple pleasure; the Avila Hotel is not only a location, but also a destination. Its central downtown location and two private beaches, make the Avila Hotel a top choice amongst Curaçao 4-star resorts. With over 60 years of experience, we are confident that we can offer you an unforgettable stay on the island of Curaçao.

Ceiling fans whirl slowly. The air smells sweetly of hibiscus and trinitaria (bougainvillea). Palm trees on the beach seem to wave welcome. Brightly painted fishing boats chug across the azure sea. A full moon chases a warm sun westward. Another perfect day magically evolves into yet another balmy, star-studded night. The Avila Hotel is an authentic reflection of the island of Curaçao. Friendly, intimate, understated en welcoming. An oasis of peace and yet it is only a short distance from bustling historic Willemstad (Curaçao's capital).

The heart of the Avila Hotel is a beautiful Dutch Colonial style mansion. It is estimated that the original building was built at the end of the 18th century. During the British rule at the beginning of the 19th century, it became the residence of the British Governors and later on that of the Dutch. The original part of the complex was called "La Belle Alliance". Another building of great historical importance on the Avila grounds is the cheerful seaside cupola, known as the Octagon because of its octagonal shape. Around 1812, the sisters of the Venezuelan liberator Simon Bolivar lived at the Octagon during their years of exile from the Venezuelan independence war against Spain. Today this building is a much-sought venue to host elegant wedding ceremonies and receptions.

At various times in history, "Avila" has served several purposes: as a country house or residence of English and Dutch Governors, as a boys' boarding school, as a private school, as a private dwelling, as a private hospital and finally as the oldest hotel, still in continuous operation, in Curaçao.
