Located in Palm Beach, the most cosmopolitan and vibrant area of Aruba, this high-end, all-inclusive resort for families and couples offers a new level of luxury. The resort holds a privileged location on the fine white sands of a Caribbean beach overlooking turquoise waters, with warm, dry weather throughout the year. Enjoy the tropical atmosphere of the large, free-form swimming pool with waterfalls, two whirlpools, and a swim-up bar to keep you relaxed and cool throughout the day.

With elegantly appointed accommodations and a la carte dining options, you'll feel a sense of sophisticated luxury that goes far beyond your expectations. This magnificent resort is close to many tourist attractions and just steps away from the best entertainment, lounges, discos, and shopping areas the island has to offer. The program of sports and leisure activities includes tennis on two floodlit courts, beach volleyball, water polo, aqua aerobics, diving demonstration lessons, snorkeling (equipment available), and more. The youngsters (ages 4-12) will enjoy the Kids' Club, with its program of supervised activities. In the evening, don't miss the shows and nightly entertainment.
