The meaning of the word ‘luxury’ is for no traveler alike. In Aruba, some may find great pleasure in lavishly designed rooms, personalized service or the latest spa experience. Other guests look for perfect peace and quiet, or a new gastronomic journey. No matter how far apart the expectations, there is one thing Aruba visitors will certainly agree upon: the island’s wealth of welcoming beaches.
What could be more pleasing than a tastefully decorated room with Aruba’s spectacular ocean, right at your feet? Staying in one, of course! And it’s actually quite probable, because most luxury resorts are sitting on the Palm Beach strip. This area, also known as Aruba’s high rise, is where the island comes together to shop, dine, drink and dance. Upscale newcomers like The Ritz-Carlton have gained a prominent position in the island’s sumptuous accommodation scene.
The less busy and therefor cozier low rise area is closer to downtown Oranjestad, starting from Eagle Beach all the way to Druif Beach. Tourists in search of serenity, elegance and eco-friendliness, will get the chance to rediscover those words at the award-winning Bucuti & Tara Beach Resorts. Wellness seekers and spa enthusiasts will enter a tropical sanctuary at one of the island’s favorite retreats, Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa.
High or low rise, buzzing or intimate, with a top destination like Aruba, the chances to succeed are only a matter of personal selection. Here are some excellent 10Best options.
