The Pietrmaai District of Willemstad

Our Neighborhood

Scuba Lodge & Ocean Suites is located directly near the ocean in the vibrant Pietermaai District. Our unique and charming neighborhood is known for its renovated buildings and beautiful architecture. Punda and Otrobanda are within walking distance, as well as the Queen Emma Pontoon Bridge, De Handelskade (historic waterfront strip), and the floating market.

A wide variety of restaurants and cafes, museums, and the nearby beach ensure that you won't feel bored for a minute. It’s the very lively reason why they call the Pietermaai District “the quartier latin” of Curaçao.

Everything within reach

A mini market, ATM machine, and pharmacy are all just a short walk away. There is a bus stop in front of the hotel with a regular schedule towards and from Mambo Beach BLVD, Cabana Beach (just a 10-minute drive), and other touristic main attractions.

On site we have a PADI dive center with experienced dive instructors. Here you can rent snorkel gear and dive equipment, book diving courses, and schedule guided dives. Our Scuba Lodge-house reef is full of stunning fish and corals. Snorkelers and divers will find plenty of tropical fish and colored reef to look at.

City Beach 88

Right next door to Scuba Lodge, you will find CIty Beach 88; the first and only city beach in Curaçao. Here you can take a dip in the ocean, lounge on one of the comfy beach beds, or enjoy a refreshing drink at the bar. When you're starting to feel hungry, you can order panini's, snacks and salads. There is a daily beer bucket and wine special from 5:00-6:00PM and on Thursdays from 5:00-7:00PM. City Beach 88 opens at 10:00AM. Both entrance and beach beds are complimentary. Hotel guests can pick up clean beach towels at the front desk of the hotel.
