History & Philosophy

10 years ago, the Morena Eco Resort was constructed to prove it is possible to enjoy a nice, luxurious vacation in a responsible and sustainable manner. Being passionate about nature and Curacao, the owners created Morena with all their energy, knowledge and savings in order to contribute to a sustainable future for Curacao and the local people. Certifications such as Green Key or Travelife acknowledge how the eco-resort contributes to a greener Curacao and to prosperity and well-being of its inhabitants. Morena Eco Resort has proven that there is actually space for a sustainable travel product on Curacao, giving guests and employees a satisfied feeling.
