Baoase Luxury Resort receives Diamond Rating

November 25th, 2018

AAA is the only entity that employs a staff of full-time, professionally trained inspectors to evaluate properties on an ongoing basis. All AAA inspections are unannounced to ensure an unbiased experience. Properties do not pay to be inspected, rated or listed by AAA because the program exists to serve AAA/CAA members in the USA and Canada. Their goal is to provide members with solid, trusted recommendations on places to eat, stay and play.

And this year again, they have inspected Baoase Luxury Resort again. With an overall rating of 4,7 (out of 5) AAA describes Baoase as refined, stylish with upscale physical attributes, extensive amenities and a high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail.

We could not be more proud!

During the film takes of the German Die Bachelorette, they visited the ABC islands with each of the three final candidates. Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao were the stages for the final three different dream dates. Above all, Nadine Klein, the bachelorette, and her date Filip Pavlivic, spent their night at Baoase Luxury Resort.

During the episode of the semi-final, Curaçao is shown as a romantic and diverse holiday destination. It all started with an exciting rappelling session at the Queen Juliana Bridge with a spectacular view over Willemstad. Afterwards, the two love birds drove with an old school VW van to a beach close to Playa Porto Marie, to enjoy a romantic picnic.

The evening took place at Baoase Luxury Resort, where Nadine and Filip had an exclusive dinner and spend their first night together. Nadine statet: “To savor, is the keyword when it comes to the Baoase Culinary Beach Restaurant – Chef René Klop pampers his guests at the highest level. Love goes through the stomach – even with a romantic dinner under the Caribbean starry sky.”

She also described Baoase Luxury Resort as: “Tucked away in a quiet residential area on the outskirts of Willemstad is the gorgeous Baoase Luxury Resort. Direct close the turquoise blue sea you can enjoy luxury with your feet in the sand.”

Zika virus officially removed from the Caribbean

November 25th, 2018

The Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) is happy to announce that the Zika virus is officially removed from the Caribbean. The World Health  Organization (WHO) confirmed this last week.

WHO concluded this due to the evidence that the Zika virus transmission in the Caribbean had been interrupted for over 12 months, or was at undetectable levels, thereby posing very little risk to residents and visitors to the region. This outcome is matched with the shared data by CARPHA in Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States of America, which showed that no Zika had been detected for over 12 months in travelers returning from the Caribbean to their countries.

Baoase Luxury Resort is very happy with this news, since it has a positive effect on the attractiveness of spending holidays at Curaçao. The Zika virus will not have an impact anymore on our tourists visits and Baoase loves to welcome guest from all over the world.

A taste bud tickling gallery event

September 5th, 2018

For three weeks, the French garden of Gallery van Dun was the al fresco art gallery for leading international artist during the ‘Van Dun Sculptuur’ exposition. Art objects merged with a lush, green backdrop. Works created with the more traditional materials such as glass, bronze, stone, and steel met the unusual ones made of recycled car parts, matches, and dolls. And because one can’t truly appreciate art on an empty stomach, Baoase’s Executive Chef Rene Klop had the honor to create some bites for the opening night of ‘Van Dun Sculptuur’. Klop: ‘Artist and chefs are quite alike – turning our own experiences into something compelling to others. I am honored and grateful to be asked to present the culinary part of this event.’

Caribbean chefs explore U.S. barbecue

Caribbean chefs explore U.S. barbecue
It is true. We are never done learning. Even a chef like Rene Klop isn’t. Therefore, Baoase’s Executive Chef joined the U.S. Beef Education, Texas Barbecue Themes along with several other Caribbean chefs who dared to explore American barbecue. Though Klop has proven to be experienced in working with U.S. beef, featuring traditional meat dishes on his menu, this week of beef, beef, and beef brought the chef a refreshing view on the right cuts. Klop: ‘These seven days showed me exactly where our beef comes from and how it is produced while educating on the lesser-known – though incredible tasty – cuts. It is a story I would love to pass on at Baoase Culinary Beach Restaurant. In word and in dish.’
