Apple Leisure Group (ALG) subsidiary, AMResorts, has announced a new resort management deal which will see the company bring the Dreams Resort and Spas brand to the Caribbean island of Curacao.
The Hilton Curacao, owned by Lionstone Development, will undergo a $15m renovation before re-opening in December 2019 as Dreams Curacao Resort, Spa and Casino.
Located in Piscadera Bay, the property will include 197 rooms and suites, two restaurants, a spa, fitness facilities, a corner shop and café, and two private beaches.
“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. travellers 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, EVP and CSO 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 fuelling our growth throughout the region.”
The property will offer the company’s signature all-inclusive offerings, which includes amenities such as 24-hour room and concierge services.
It will be AMResorts’ second all-inclusive property in Curacao, joining the Sunscape Curacao, which first opened in 2012.
At present, the company has a portfolio of 64 resorts, with a further 10,000 rooms currently in development.
