Hilton Curaçao celebrates its second birthday with the opening of the first LivingWell Health and Beach Club in the world and the first Livingwell Club of any kind in the Caribbean.Ê Livingwell, Hilton International’s health club brand, operates more than 130 clubs in more than 15 countries worldwide, but this is the first to offer a beach.Ê Hilton Curaçao’s stunning beaches and pools make it the perfect venue to become the company’s first health and beach club.Open to hotel guests, as well as for local membership, facilities include two floodlit tennis courts, three swimming pools, two clear water beaches, and a 2,000 sq. ft. fitness center with Precor® cardiovascular equipment, a free weights area and a spacious aerobics studio.Ê Qualified instructors will be on hand to provide individual fitness advice and lead a diverse program of exercise classes, ranging from traditional aerobics to Yoga and Cardio Kickboxing.Ê
Adjacent to the Club is the ‘Color of People Spa’, which opened its doors in September 2004 and also caters to the discerning local clientele as well as hotel guests. The spa is home to four treatment rooms, three of which have ocean views, and a vast spa menu including hydrotherapy, manicures & pedicures, facials, massages, body wraps including a specialty soothing wrap for those who enjoyed too much sun.ÊProducts used include ‘phytomer’, made from natural sea extracts, and ‘physicians choice’.
With the hotel’s ‘Kidz Paradise’ club, parents can leave their children under supervision while they enjoy a spa treatment or a workout.
“Health awareness and the realization that there is a need to balance our busy lives have never been higher. Guests and local business people are looking for a place to slow the pace. A place to put back what life and living are taking out. A place to enjoy the best of health. No other property on the island can match the Hilton Curaçao with its combination of superb state-of-the-art fitness facilities, stunning beaches, pools andÊ
full-service spa,” commented Peter Webster, general manager, Hilton Curaçao.Ê
Opened on March 6th 2003, the 196-room Hilton Curaçao has completed extensive renovation of the hotel over the past two years. The 23 acres of grounds have been beautifully landscaped, and public areas and bedrooms have been renovated.Ê May 2005 welcomes the introduction of high speed internet to all bedrooms and the summer brings the addition of four new meeting rooms, a business center and further enhancement of the public areas and bedrooms.
