Corendon celebrates the opening party of The Rif at Mangrove Beach, Corendon Curacao All-Inclusive, Curio Collection by Hilton

Badhoevedorp, December 18, 2023 – Corendon celebrated a spectacular opening party last Sunday, December 17, in honor of the newest hotel in Curaçao: The Rif at Mangrove Beach, Corendon Curacao All-Inclusive, Curio Collection by Hilton. The exclusive event, attended by prominent Curaçaoan personalities such as Gilmar Pisas (the Prime Minister of Curaçao), Ruisandro Cijntje (the Minister of Economic Development of Curaçao), and various parliament members, marked the completion of the first two floors and all facilities, including three sophisticated à la carte restaurants. The guests were given a sneak peek of the luxury awaiting hotel guests.

The Rif at Mangrove Beach promises a vacation under the Caribbean sun in pure luxury. The hotel is surrounded on three sides by a unique lagoon and park area with mangrove forests, and Willemstad is just around the corner. A delightful private beach with a replica of the famous Pontjesbrug and the island’s most beautiful coral reef beckons at the doorstep. From spacious Deluxe rooms overlooking lush gardens to swim-up rooms with direct access to the pool, the hotel offers a range of accommodations. Hotel guests enjoy a stay based on Ultra All-Inclusive, with a choice of various bars, including a pool bar and coffee shop, and a total of three à la carte restaurants. From Mexican to Turkish specialties and surprising dishes at the Harbor Bistro. Even room service is part of the All-Inclusive concept. In addition, all facilities of the adjacent Corendon Mangrove Beach Resort are at guests’ disposal.

The hotel’s design is inspired by the coral reef and can be found in the exotic décor and furnishings of various public areas and hotel rooms. Just as coral reefs nurture numerous species, this hotel is designed to cater to the unique preferences and wishes of each guest.

Family Vacations
Families can stay in special family rooms, where two rooms are reserved side by side for maximum privacy. The hotel offers not only luxury accommodations but also a water park at the adjacent Mangrove Beach, Corendon Curacao All-Inclusive Resort, Curio by Hilton, with pools and slides, including the infamous King Cobra, the only slide of its kind in the Caribbean.
