Unique Caribbean Hotel

Believe it or not, the luxurious Hotel Kura Hulanda Spa & Casino was once a slum. A decade ago, Dutch billionaire Jacob Gelt Dekker saw potential in the rundown buildings. He purchased several blocks and created a hotel that resembles a mini town suspended in time. Each of the 80 rooms is different: Some face pools, while others stay quietly hidden in second-story walk-ups over restaurants. During construction of Dekker’s home, a former slave market was discovered, which is now the center of an extensive museum.
