Some places create a mood, sustain a feeling, suggest possibilities. At Baoase every walkway, light, even every rock was placed with an artistic sensibility. The resort exudes beauty and calm. You hear soft music, sighing palms, lapping waves, or a fountain gently splashing. The staff is kindly observant: they take professional and personal interest in helping you find relaxation and enjoyment. You can release your cares and worries and allow yourself to be seduced by the beauty that surrounds you.

Umbrellas and soft outdoor recliners create little private enclaves by the beach, under a gazebo, or in a small stand of palm trees. The bar is well-stocked. There are chairs waiting for you and a smile to greet you as you choose a drink. If you want to snorkel around the main cove or in the open sea, mask and fins are there for you.

We had the good fortune of having one of the newer suites. So in addition, we had a private beach, our own meandering pool, and a refrigerator filled with wines, beers, and other delicacies. It is so freeing to be able to lie on a beautiful beach in complete privacy. When that was followed by a bath or shower under the palm trees, we felt like we had wandered into paradise.

We had wondeful meals. The breakfast was sumptuous. We usually skipped lunch because we weren’t hungry. The dinners often had themes: asian night, barbecue, lobster. Because I’m vegetarian, the chef came around to talk with us and plan our dinners. The results ranged from delicious to spectacular. The restaurant staff already knew our preferences, allergies, restrictions so we could just trust in their discretion. If you have time constraints, I would suggest mentioning that to your waiter because the default is a long, unhurried, leisurely experience.

There was wonderful live music during our dinners. One night featured a saxophonist playing beautifully, accompanied by background music. Some guests danced at their tables or with him while he played. Another duo sang lovely soul and r&b standards, sometimes in a well-controlled falsetto while accompanying themselves on guitar, drum and muted trumpet, though there was no trumpet in evidence.

Baoase has a mixture of Curaçaoan and Dutch staff. There is an unmistakable sweetness of manner. At first we thought that must be the result of policy or training, but we encountered that same sweetness wherever we wandered on the island. It makes for a wonderful combination: extreme thoroughness and competence delivered in a sweet and kindly way. Our mantra became “They will know a way.” For anything we wanted to do, the staff had a solution, typically better than anything we would have come up with on our own.

If you have read this far, you know why we will have given Baoase top ratings across the board. The name is the initials of the two founders plus “oase”, oasis in dutch. They truly have created a wonderful oasis. We left in a state of bliss.

Room tip: The suites with private beach and pool are expensive, but worth what they cost if you want a really special experience.

I came here for my 18th birthday with my friend and we had an amazing time. The resort set up very fun activities like ATV riding and visiting Klein curacao for a day. The staff was always helpful and easily accessible. The villa was very private and clean and we even had our own pool. The rooms were very nice and the AC worked very well. The resort is very beautiful and has a nice beach and restaurant. The service and experience overall was very good, definitely worth checking out.

We loved our stay at the resort. It is even more beautiful than shown in the photos. The rooms are amazing and the service is first-class. We look forward to returning soon. We particularly loved the bedroom which included an outdoor area and private pool, as well as an outdoor shower.

The food was excellent and it offered good variety.

My husband and I just had our wedding here and the entire experience was amazing. The rooms, food, beach, and service are all well above average. We rented a car and explored the island without issue. Many near by restaurants to try. We will return!
