“A very picky person review”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014

This will be tough one to write... I don't casually leave 5 start review to resorts, but despite few teeny-tiny digs I can't honestly leave anything but full solid 5 stars for this vacation.

First of all - despite Curacao wasn't my favorite island (after we visited 6 others), Baoase provided us with truly unforgettable experience.

Pros: Excellent service, especially from Francesca at the restaurant and Gregory beach attendant . Included breakfast was exceptional. Lunch and dinner are excellent as well. We were offered besides any dishes on regular menus any other type of food it would be possible to make for us.

Our room had huge balcony with private Jacuzzi - huge pros for us. The room is well appointed, very nice blend of Malaysian and modern designs and with only few minor issues I will discuss later.

Cons: few minor issues : standing shower had no doors and was rather small. Not an issue for me, but was for my wife. Speaking of shower, the water drain slopes was not done right and puddles would stay on the floor for a while.
The vanity area had a sub par lighting. This one is begging to be addressed asap. I mean can you shave your face in a ultra blue light? The room cleaning was OK, but definitely there's room for improvement. Some dust on shelves and on air conditioner.
Room safe was not a resort model, a home one. It took me 20 attempts every time I needed to open it.
Keep in mind that all electrical outlets in room are of European (Dutch?) standard aka 220v and have two big round plugs, but reception will provide adapters as necessary. Still the vanity counter could use a power outlet.

Besides included breakfast (which was simply amazing), other meals were prepared excellent as well, but are very pricey. Typical price of entree is from 42 to 50 US dollars.

Bottom line : I feel that despite few minor issues, the resort still deserves to get 5 star rating from me. It's not perfect, but as close to paradise as we ever were in hotels in the Caribbean.

We had dinner at Baoase recently, the resort looks stunning. We where welcomed at the front gate with a glass of bubbles, always welcome! We where seated on a private beach table only feet from the waterline. The tables in the restaurant are quite nice as well and there are some private gazebos.
We tried the chefs 5 course tasting menu which was awesome. The dishes where well presented and explained by our knowledgeable server. Baoase offers an nice wine list with a wide variety for all budgets. All in a great dinner at one of the prettiest locations on curaçao. Love the details like the in house taxi service that will drive you to your hotel safely for a small fee. Baoase is not cheap, but you get what you pay for, a memorable evening with friends and family! We will be back !

My husband and I stayed at the Baoase hotel for five days. It was a very pleasant experience for us. The hotel is so beautiful. Moreover it offers to you a private clime, since it has very few accomodations and a lot of phisical space. There is a private beach and a salt water pool. And if you choose staying in one of the Villas, you have a private access to the pool. The service is very nice, and the hotel staff are always very polite and attentive. I certainly reccomend Baoase Luxury Resort!

Room Tip: We stayed at the Suite 2, ocean front, and like it so much!

This resort is a paradise beyond imagination....once you are inside the gate its like you entered the gates to heaven. There is nothing more you could desire.Turquoise water, White sandy beach. Wonderful food. At night everything is lit around the island. You can dress op for the night but there is no need for if you do not want. The restaurant is on the beach. Little gazebos for 2 or 4 or 6 to eat as well as in the beach and the outside dining area. covered gazebos for lounge chairs. And even if the resort is full....there are more than enough places to sit or lay a bit privately. A Pool that goes around in a circle with trees int he middle and a cave to swim thru. Lights at night so you can swim anytime. Private villa's with a private pool, beautifully decorated...So romantic......House cleaning 2x a day. Fresh orchids
in towels, candles, a special box of sweets on the bed,,,,,slippers, robe, no amenities spared, A breakfast included from 7 to 11.......all the cold items, fruit, all the cooked items made to order plus a daily special and champagne......The staff is the most wonderful.....from the office to the beach butlers.....everyone makes you feel like you are at home and oh so special!
I have had the opportunity to come here often and the feeling stays every single time again exquisite. I became an addict , but it doesn't need a cure. Thank you Baoase for showing that nature can be so beautiful if well taken care for and to share this with us .Thank you for showing that friendly people do make a difference .Thank you for this beautiful place that was your dream but to give others also the opportunity to enjoy it. I will absolutely be one of your biggest fans ever.

My wife and I went to Curacao in July of 2013 so I am a little late writing this review. But the resort is so beautiful and amazing how could I forget about it. Food was amazing, accommodations were amazing, beach was amazing, and the staff was awsome. The morning breakfast was the best I've had at a resort. The beach dinner was so romantic with the candles in the little boats in the water. I can't speak enough about this place. Just save your money and go! If you are going on a vacation to curacao, you have to stay here!

No need for dress up clothes if you do not want. the restaurant in on the beach. Little gazebos for 2 or 4 or 6 to eat as well as in the beach and the outside dining area. covered gazebos for lounge chairs. And even if the resort is full....there are more than enough places to sit or lay. A Pool that goes around in a circle with trees int he middle and a cave to swim thru.
