Pure bliss starts with peace of mind
Citing the Queen of Holland and Monaco’s royal family among past guests, this is one of Aruba’s most exclusive hotel complexes. It comes with an All Inclusive option, too.
This 40-acre resort provides a choice of two hotels. There’s the adults-only Renaissance Marina Hotel, and the family-friendly Renaissance Ocean Suites, which sit on opposite sides of the marina, about a five-minute walk apart. With a private island, chandelier-lit casino and designer shops, this place has all the trimmings for a luxury getaway.
The rooms at both Ocean Suites and the Marina underwent renovations in 2015, and now combine bold, modern style with sharp vintage details to create rooms that have a tasteful bit of glam pizzazz. Expect to see lots of warm wood tones in everything from sleek contemporary storage units to retro chairs plus an abundance of ocean blues and accents like island-postcard wallpaper in the closets in some rooms. The starburst pattern carpet in each room is another throwback design choice that feels fresh, while collections of vases and other objets d’art give higher-category rooms even more personality.
When it comes to facilities, guests can never get bored – there is a large fitness center and a jogging trail offered to guests, as well as three beautiful pools, scuba diving and kayaking are also offered.
Thre 8 dining options available on-site, Aquarius and the Papagayo Bar & Grill serve fine international cuisine. Guests can also enjoy L.G. Smith’s Steak & Chop House or Midnight Grill and BLUE. Fresco, Sole and Mangrove Beach Bar are available for additional dining options.
