Like Jamaica or the Bahamas,
Aruba is one of the most visited islands in the Caribbean for a reason. Surrounded by tropical beauty and with a
perfect climate, it's
hard to imagine a place lovelier to visit than an Aruban
beach. Visiting this part of the world is a treat to most
and the hotels here reflect this. Laden with amenities
and services designed to pamper, even the lower end hotels
in Aruba are resorts to
many. But if you desire an absolutely perfect hotel experience,
the luxury hotels in Aruba are for you.
Aruba Luxury Hotels
The best hotels in Aruba are mostly found in the Oranjestad and Palm Beach areas as this is both where the nicest beaches are located as well as the best shopping options and attractions. Here's a rundown of some of the best 4 and 5 star hotels in Aruba.
Riu Palace Antillas
The Riu Palace Antillas is one of the best hotels in
Aruba. Located on Palm Beach, Riu has a long list
of extras and features. Charter one of the hotel's
boats to go deep sea fishing or sailing, hire one a professional guide to take you
on a scuba diving tour,
visit the hotel's casino for gambling and live music,
rent water sport equipment for any kind of water activity
you can think of, or get married here. Rooms offer island,
partial-ocean, or ocean views and a long list of standard
amenities including high speed internet, deluxe bathrooms
with Heavenly showers and baths, and mini bars. Truly
one of the luxury hotels in Aruba.
Other well-appointed Aruba luxury hotels are the Renaissance
Aruba Resort and Casino, Radisson Aruba, Hyatt Regency,
Marriott Resort and Stellaris Casino. All have the usual
amenities of upscale hotels, plus a few extra points that
make them special. The Renaissance is on L.G. Smith Boulevard
in Oranjestad and includes Aruba's only private
beaches. The Radisson is in Palm Beach and has weekly
movies and wine tastings. The Hyatt Regency has a fantastic
three-level swimming pool with waterfalls and two outdoor
whirlpools. And the Marriott Resort has a beachside bar
and a nice array of restaurants.
Tierra Del Sol
Tierra Del Sol
If you want to set your vacation a little bit outside of the popular Oranjestad or Palm Beach area, Tierra Del Sol might be your best bet. Beyond the usual luxury hotels in Aruba, Tierra Del Sol is a 600-acre community with the highest level of service. Rather than room rentals, this resort offers villas and condominiums ranging from affordable to very upscale. While Tierra Del Sol has many amenities including a full spa and destination weddings, possibly the largest draw of this resort is its world-class golf course — the only one on the island.
The best hotels in Aruba are easy to find in Oranjestad, Palm Beach, or over the internet. Reserve well ahead for the best rates. Expect nothing but the finest from the best hotels in Aruba as they are all designed to create the vacation of a lifetime.
