Expansion planned for completion by December 2006

The new wing began construction in April 2005 and its
completion and grand opening is scheduled for December 2006.

Located on a beachfront parcel of land adjacent to the present hotel
grounds, the new Octagon Wing will be the crowning achievement of the
ongoing re-branding activities at the Avila Hotel as it transforms into a
contemporary, luxury resort & spa. The expansion will feature 68 oversized
rooms decorated in sophisticated neutrals with splashes of Caribbean colors.
Room amenities will include flat screen TV’s, high-speed internet
connectivity and lavish bathrooms with natural stone and wood textures and
Elemis bath products. The exterior design of the Octagon Wing will be
contemporary, yet great care has been exercised to incorporate elements of
typical Curaçao architectural style and ensure that it forms a perfect
combination with the “classic” Avila Hotel.


“We are eagerly anticipating the opening of the new Octagon Wing as we have
spent hundreds of hours pouring over the design details to ensure that our
guests will experience the timeless elegance and hospitality they have come
to expect from us. With the addition of a gorgeous seaside swimming pool and
a new spa, we can confidently say that the Octagon Wing will set new
standards in luxury accommodations for the island of Curaçao and for many
parts of the Caribbean region,” said Tone Moller, director of commerce of
the Avila Hotel.



In addition to the new rooms, the expansion will incorporate the
construction of an expansive 1,722 square foot swimming pool built to meet
the beach edge as well as a new spa.  The Avila will now be able to offer
guests the choice of beach or poolside relaxation.  The spa will be a brand
new facility overlooking the Caribbean offering signature treatments such as
watermassage - a massage treatment given while patrons float in the ocean.


The top floor of the new Octagon Wing will hold one more extravagant treat.
Measuring approximately 1,000 square feet, the Bolivar Suite, named after
the famed liberator of South America, will appeal to even the most
discriminating traveler.  The suite will offer sweeping views of the
Caribbean Sea and the coastline of Curaçao and furnishings will be
unparalleled, featuring bamboo flooring and a grand piano, amongst others.
