Dream Escape: Travel To Aruba

- By


Divi Aruba All Inclusive

At Divi Aruba, located in Oranjestad, you’ll spend most your time in that water. The two resorts share amenities: pools, a 30-foot climbing wall, bikes, tennis courts, a gym, children’s camp, and access to a neighboring casino. Though families and honeymooners outnumber other guests, the vibe remains mellow and beach-focused, not frantic with kiddie activities or bass-thumping nightlife. With nine restaurants, seven bars, and three pools you’ll never be at a shortage of things to do. If you stay at Divi Aruba, you’ll also have full use of the adjacent Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusive.

Radisson Aruba Resort, Casino & Spa

Located in Palm Beach, this three-tower Dutch Colonial resort and casino boasts Aruba’s most comprehensive spa, extending onto a 1,500-foot stretch of powdery white sand. Tip: Book the Garden View rooms 1316 and 3319, for maximum privacy. And don’t miss the aloe-and-rum massage at the 13,000-square-foot Larimar Spa.

Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa

You’ll never believe this resort was formerly a Best Western. Sitting on the western coast of the island in Oranjestad, it has 71 simple rooms, most of which open right onto one of the Caribbean’s most beautiful stretches of sand. Green Globe certified, at the Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa they “promise to preserve a safe and healthy environment for the island of Aruba, its people and visiting guests.” If you’re in search of palapas, crystal clear water, and a cocktail, what more could you need? Maybe a shiatsu massage at the beachfront spa, set in a tropical garden. Yeah, you’d like that.
