Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino
Instead of beachside palapas on powdery white sand, the small hotel pool here is in view of a busy boulevard. But the 556-room resort, situated in the capital of Oranjestad, more than makes up for its city location with its own private island, a mere eight-minute water-taxi ride away. The 40-acre tropical oasis, dotted with pink flamingos and iguanas, is separated into two distinct beaches, one, adults-only, the other designated for families. But because this is a private island owned by a large hotel chain, expect more lures here than just a few hammocks strung between trees (though rest assured, there are those as well). A beachside bar and grill has burgers and wood-fired pizzas on its menu; an open-air spa offers Swedish massage, cold stone massage and reflexology steps from the water; and an extensive water sports program includes activities like snorkeling, scuba diving, ocean kayaking and more. A more comprehensive spa, steakhouse, and a casino await back at the main resort, whose rooms are separated into the family-friendly Renaissance Ocean Suites, and more plush adults-only Renaissance Marina Hotel, where a recent renovation saw upgrades totaling over $35,000 per room.
