THE LUXURY Curacao, which puts the “C” in the Southern Caribbean’s delightful “ABC” islands (tailing Aruba and Bonaire), is known for its cultured capital, terrific dive sights, and the colorful and historic Hotel Kura Hulanda Spa & Casino. Combine a stay in the history-rich heart of Willemstad, a UNESCO World Heritage site, at the Hotel Kura Hulanda with some downtime on the beach at the resort’s secluded sister property, the Lodge Kura Hulanda & Beach Club.
THE VALUE The “Winter on Sale” deal slashes rates by 40 percent, and is valid for bookings in all room categories (excluding the three-bedroom Kalki Villa at Lodge Kura Hulanda) for travel through April 7, 2012.

THE CATCH Note that taxes and fees will tack on an additional 20 percent to the discounted rates. Plus, a 3-night minimum stay is required to secure the deal, and the promotion must be book before it expires on February 15 .
