April showers bring May flowers. Ah, Spring, that time of year where everything begins to feel like a breath of fresh air.
A season filled with the energies of renewal and rebirth, a clean slate to begin again. Finally the weather permits windows and doors to be opened, a chance to let out the stuffiness of Winter, to clean out the clutter, and invite sunshine and happiness inside.
Cleaning out one’s home, work space, and car are all excellent manifestations of renewal, but more than our environments or our things, Spring is the ideal time to clean out and refresh ourselves.
Is it possible to be able to detach from the to-do lists, demanding schedules, and constant noise of our daily lives?
Perhaps, but why make self-care another chore on the to-do list, when it can be a reason to escape, getaway, or vacation for a while?
Release yourself from your everyday habitat, and retreat to a destination that enables you to detach from every single preoccupying thought, allowing complete serenity to take over.
Welcome to the Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao, nestled beneath the hurricane belt, a mere 44 miles north of Venezuela, and blessed with immeasurable natural beauty.
Let Curaçao be your escape. It’s time to pamper and indulge yourself, a Spring cleaning from head to toe, so you can return to your natural habitat feeling present, calm, and revitalized.
Nature Will Penetrate Your Every Sense
No sirens, crowds, or parking lots. Instead, Curaçao offers serene beaches, soft green hills, and placid bays.
Spend half a day, a full day, or a few days taking in the natural wonders of the island. Some of our recommendations include:
- Shete Boka National Park – An area with over 10 beautiful inlets, or coves, where many species take refuge from the large waves. Turtles nest here, and sweeping views of the sea are offered with each step.
- Beaches! – Curaçao is a Caribbean island after all, meaning it has plenty of picturesque beaches for you to lay upon, walk along, or even snorkel within. Visit here for a comprehensive guide to the islands beaches.
A Day at the Spa
We spend much of our time taking care of others, but how often do we get taken care of? It’s your turn to be pampered from head to foot. Atabei Spa, one of Curaçao’s premier spas, offers every luxurious treatment needed for total relaxation. Seaweed detox, mud wrap, lemongrass bamboo scrub, plant cell stem facial, coo deep tissue massage, are just a few examples of the incredible offerings on the Atabei Spa menu.
Wellness for the Mind, Body, and Spirit
More than just taking in the surrounding natural wonders, you can immerse yourself in them.
- Island Yoga – Few activities calm the mind while activating the physical body quite like yoga. Yoga on the beach, yoga studios, and even yoga retreats are all options on the island.
- Water Adventures – One of the most important elements on Earth is water. Curaçao has everything from snorkeling, scuba diving, stand up paddling, kayaking, and so much more.
Do everything, or do absolutely nothing. If spending your days relaxing poolside, or resting inside your luxurious accommodations is your dream vacation, then by all means, Curaçao is still the ideal destination for you. Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort is a tranquil haven where rest and relaxation are the order of the day. The spacious rooms and extensive resort grounds, all with the backdrop of the Caribbean sea, will ensure you experience absolute paradise throughout your visit to the island.
Spring is in the air, and it’s your turn to devote some quality Spring cleaning time to the most important person in your life – you.
