Last night, true love prevailed as The Bachelorette’s Emily Maynard gave her final rose to her favorite bachelor. But if you’re anything like us, you were more interested in their chosen destination of Curacao than in who rode off into the sunset with our dear Emily. Luckily for us, the resort that was featured in the final episodes, Sandton Kura Hulanda Lodge & Beach Club, is giving romantics everywhere the opportunity to experience your own Bachelorette Dream Getaway.
The Sandton Kura Hulanda Lodge & Beach Club in Curacao — with its 18th and 19th-century Dutch Colonial Caribbean buildings, courtyards, pools, award-winning restaurants and spa — hosted the 2 private one-on-one dates in the second to last episode and was the setting for the finale’s rose ceremony. With its exclusive new packages, the resort is offering viewers the chance to step into Emily’s shoes and recreate the Bachelorette experience.

Luxury hotels in Hong Kong are taking Japanese fish, beef and other foods off their menus due to Japan’s nuclear crisis, according to Bloomberg.
The concern is that food may have been contaminated after radiation was released from the deteriorating nuclear power plant.Shangri-La, Mandarin Oriental and Four Seasons hotels in Hong Kong have all stopped buying fresh foods from Japan even though no clear risk has been confirmed yet.
At the Four Seasons in Hong Kong, chefs are no longer cooking up Wagyu beef, sea scallops and abalone from Japan. The hotel is using products from New Zealand and Australia, according to hotel publicist Claire Blackshaw.
Hotel officials say they won’t add Japanese food back on the menu until the situation stabilizes.
