Grupo GHL Hoteles interested in Kura Hulanda

LogoconfondoWILLEMSTAD - Representatives of Grupo GHL Hoteles are expected today in Curaçao in connection with their interest in both hotels Kura Hulanda Otrabanda and Kura Hotel Lodge at West Point.

According to the Dutch newspaper Antilliaans Dagblad, it appears that the Director of Development of the Colombian based GHL Hotels will be in Curacao until Wednesday. His goal is to reach an agreement and to map out the plans for the reopening of both resorts in the shortest time possible.

After both operating companies were granted a provisional moratorium on October 18 of this year, both were still declared bankrupt a few days later.  First it was Kura Hulanda Otrabanda on October 25 and Kura Hulanda Lodge a week later on October 30. A restart of the Lodge failed in the end, because the required funding of one million guilders did not come.

Unconfirmed reports soon appeared in the media unconfirmed that GHL Hoteles would be interested in the two hotels here on the island. According to the Antilliaans Dagblad, they have the documents confirming GHL Hoteles’ interest in taking over the operations of these two hotels. GHL Hoteles made an offer to Hotel Kura Hulanda Inc. which is the property of The Jade Foundation, to operate both Otrabanda and the Lodge in West Point village.

The group repeats their commitment to reopen the doors of both resorts on December 1. It would initially involve arrangements for a transitional period of six months. To meet December 1 parties must agree on the proposal as soon as possible since a management team must be appointed.
