In Memory Of Coco, Scuba Lodge & Ocean Suites, Curacao, Caribbean


This post is dedicated the memory of Coco, at Scuba Lodge and Ocean Suites. Coco passed away in April 2018, after being resident cat for four years. We leave this post here to honour her life and the contribution she made to the staff and guests.  

Coco, the Caribbean scuba supervisor was hand picked from an animal shelter with the sole purpose of being the resident cat at Scuba Lodge, and boy she lived up to her duties.  In 2012, the team went down to the local animal shelter and headed to the kitten area. The moment they first spotted Coco, they fell in love with her big blue eyes and little pink nose. She was just eight weeks old at the time, but showed a lot of promise for her future role of resident cat. 

Back at the hotel, Coco did not disappoint and quickly became everyone’s favourite. From staff members to guests, everyone enjoyed her company. Guests regularly asked about her even long after they have checked-out and left the bright blue seas.  Coco was a self-acclaimed food taster and knows the island like the back of her paw. She was known to take her supervising duties of the diving cupboard very seriously.  Unfortunatley, Coco passed away in April 2018 after being hit by a car. We know she will be much missed by her family at Scuba Lodge.
