St. Elisabeth Hospiz im Dorf Kura Hulanda

Das St. Elizabeth Hospital (SEHOS) ist das alte Krankenhaus im Dorf Kura Hulanda im Bezirk Otrobanda. Am 3. Dezember 1855 gründete Monsignore Ferdinand Kieckens mit Unterstützung der Franziskanerinnen von Breda dieses erste Pflegeheim, das St. Mary’s Hospital. Elisabeth Hostpital. Zu Beginn wurden vor allem Leprapatienten und Menschen mit geistigen Behinderungen betreut. Im Laufe der Zeit wurde das Hospiz zu einem Krankenhaus und einer Schule für medizinische Fachkräfte.

    Größtes Krankenhaus

    SEHOS, einer der größten Arbeitgeber auf Curaçao, war mit 740 Betten das umfassendste Krankenhaus der Niederländischen Antillen. Seit seiner Eröffnung wurde dieses Hauptkrankenhaus rasch modernisiert. Die Qualität der Lebensbedingungen verbesserte sich, die Zahl der verfügbaren Betten stieg, die Zahl der medizinischen Eingriffe und der Pflegeleistungen nahm zu, und die Zahl der Ärzte und Krankenschwestern stieg. Das Krankenhaus entwickelte sich von einem kleinen Hospiz zu einer vollwertigen Einrichtung für arme Menschen, die keinen Zugang zu häuslicher Pflege hatten.

    Folglich wurde die große Mehrheit der Bevölkerung in den SEHOS geboren. In der Folge entwickelte es sich zum größten Krankenhaus der Niederländischen Antillen. Es diente auch als Ausbildungszentrum für medizinisches Personal aus den Niederlanden und der Umgebung, darunter Krankenschwestern, OP-Assistenten und Apothekenhelfer. Im Laufe der Jahre hat das Krankenhaus eine wichtige Rolle im Leben der aktuellen und ehemaligen Patienten gespielt. Ganze Generationen sind im Hospiz gepflegt worden.

    Die Gebäude

    Die ersten Flügel des Krankenhauses wurden zwischen 1855 und 1898 gebaut. Seitdem wurde das Gebäude in regelmäßigen Abständen erweitert und an den Zustrom von Patienten sowie an die Fortschritte in der medizinischen Wissenschaft und im Gesundheitswesen angepasst. Der ursprüngliche Entwurf wurde mehrfach geändert, so dass der Komplex mehrere Bauepochen aufweist. Das früheste Konzept, von dem heute praktisch keines mehr existiert, war ein Pavillonsystem, das aus einer Reihe von Strukturen bestand. Zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts wurde das Krankenhaus aufgrund des akuten Platzmangels umfassend erweitert und teilweise umgebaut.

    Vor den 1990er Jahren war das Krankenhaus in Abteilungen unterteilt, in denen Patienten beider Geschlechter, sozialer Gruppen und Berufsgruppen getrennt voneinander behandelt wurden. Es gab Zimmer für Minderbemittelte, einen Flügel für ältere Bewohner und mehrere Zimmer in der 1., 2. und 3. Klasse. In den unteren Stockwerken waren die Unterprivilegierten der Insel untergebracht. Hier befanden sich also die meisten Zimmer.

    Darüber befanden sich die Unterkünfte der zweiten Klasse. Die Zimmer der ersten Klasse waren riesig und befanden sich alle in den oberen Stockwerken, wo der Wind ungehindert wehen konnte und die Galerien den Raum kühl hielten. CM. Baker fügte die Kapelle und den Westflügel in den 1920er Jahren hinzu, und in den 1940er und 1950er Jahren erfolgten weitere Erweiterungen und Umbauten.

    Luftiges Layout

    Indem die Gebäude um einen Innenhof herum angeordnet wurden, konnten auch die Räume auf der Leeseite des Komplexes vom Wind profitieren. Darüber hinaus wurden Galerien, tiefe Fensternischen, Sichtschutzwände, überhängende Balkone und individuelle Farben verwendet, um die Blendung durch die Sonne zu reduzieren. Der Luftstrom des Gebäudes konnte durch kippbare Jalousien gesteuert werden.

    Der modernistische Ostflügel des Krankenhauses wurde 1956 von Ben Smit entworfen. Sein Fokus auf den Patientenkomfort stand bei der Gestaltung im Mittelpunkt. In erster Linie war eine angemessene Belüftung erforderlich. Eine günstige Lage zur Sonne war ebenfalls entscheidend für die Aufrechterhaltung einer angenehmen Innentemperatur.

    Im Dachfirst wurde eine Betonmarkise mit beweglichen und verstellbaren Lamellen auf der Südseite und Drehklappenfenstern in der Mitte angebracht. Die Patienten konnten sich im Freien aufhalten und die Vorteile der Natur genießen, da sie leichten Zugang zu Gärten hatten. Der von Smit entworfene Kinderbereich hatte extrabreite Gänge, damit die Kinder hinein- und hinauslaufen konnten.

    Beautiful, nice and service-oriented boutique hotel in the heart of Willemstad.To be clear: If you book via Corendon: certainly not a 5* hotel (a good 4 is better). Missing some critical things. But they make up for it with great service!A quick summary of plus and minus pointsPlus:-Location. The heart of Willemstad. In the middle of restored Otrabanda. 15 minutes walk from Nieuwstraat. Nevertheless, very quiet.-Service: employees are super friendly and helpful.-Rooms. Rooms are clean and beds great. Nice shower. Are cleaned every day. And I mean really cleaned.-Nice poolside bar where there is a lot of chatting in the evening.-Adult only. Really nice.Minus:-No beach access. This is not something that you can blame the hotel for, but it is stated differently on the Corendon site. If you want to go to a beach, you will have to arrange that yourself. Otherwise they would have gotten 5 stars for location.-Swimming pool is quite small for 46 rooms. There are approximately 13 beds, so on busy check-out days: do the math.-Breakfast. They have outsourced breakfast to a restaurant nearby (Bario). Not a buffet but a la carte. During our stay we suffered from long waiting times. Kura management then took steps and things improved.-No gym.Extras:-If you stay here, it is wise to arrange a car for at least a few days.-Be informed by the hotel management about where to eat/be etc etc.

    I had a wonderful stay at Kura Botanica in Curacao. This boutique hotel exceeded my expectations in every way. The rooms were not only nice but also impeccably clean, which is always a priority for me when traveling. The location is fantastic, being so close to Brionplein and Punda, making it convenient to explore the vibrant surroundings.The ambiance at Kura Botanica is truly special. It radiates charm and offers a tranquil atmosphere that made my stay even more enjoyable. The staff was welcoming and attentive, adding to the overall positive experience.I would highly recommend Kura Botanica to anyone looking for a cozy and well-maintained boutique hotel in Curacao. It's a gem that ensures a delightful stay in this beautiful destination.

    Hotel with a beautiful garden, in the middle of a historic village. The service from the staff has always been friendly and multilingual. The room we stayed in was new and the bed was excellent!However, some problems were observed. They didn't replace the amenities for our last night, nor did they even collect a towel that was on the floor.The shower is also not separated from the rest of the bathroom, there is no curtain or shower stall which makes the bathroom wet. There was also a lack of support for soap and shampoo, which are on the floor.The parking lot is far away and you need to either walk with your bags or take your car close to the entrance and then return to the parking lot.But the worst thing for me was the breakfast. it is served in another hotel and there is no variety, it doesn't change between days, it is very simple and contained. You can just have a coffee and a juice and not repeat it. On the first day we were treated very poorly, even harshly, which made us not want to go back the next day.

    Great place to stay. Renovated only recently and rooms are excellent. Staff is very helpful and polite. Pool is a bit small but perfect to relax at the end of day. Or whenever you start your day later.Breakfast is in collaboration with a place 1min away and is taken good care off. Choices and taste are overall just good.They did tell Kura B is planning to build their own kitchen in the near future. But the 1min (literally) walk shouldn't trouble you.

    We are locals and wanted a relaxing escape from our usual routine. This place was extremely relaxing, with a beautiful pool surrounded by large trees to provide a great mix of shade and sun. The hotel is very well located with many great restaurants within a few minutes walk. The rooms are very well designed for an authentic Curacao experience. We would highly recommend a stay to both couples as to individuals visiting Curacao.

    I think this is best hotel in Curaçao!It is sweet and charming, the rooms are very clean and well kept. It is comprised of several buildings within the property. Vivid colours both inside and outside of the rooms. Lots of lush foliage and very serene, literally perfect for retreating from busyness and embracing relaxation.It’s tucked in Kura Hulanda village so there’s plenty to do and eat without walking more than 10 minutes but I recommend exploring nearby neighbourhoods like Otrabanda (where the hotel is), Punda and Pietermaai which are all walking distanceWhat’s most memorable is the keen hospitality of the KB team. I felt welcomed throughout the duration of my stay, not just upon arrival. They happily answered every question I had and was consistently kind and helpful.Janette, Teresa, Disney, Darrel, Rosalita, and the young lady w the cute headscarf that complimented my crocs - you guys are amazing!My only regret is leaving such a good review bc now I risk KB not being available when I return!
