What's to Love

Brand spankin' new with extravagances in every aspect of the resort - a seriously swanky vacay.

Beach loungers with chic blue and white striped umbrellas where the wait service is sheer bliss and the white sugar sands of Palm Beach stretch for miles.

Signature Ritz-Carlton featherbeds in the rooms (you're going to sleep like a baby) and oversized bathtubs to really slip into relaxation.

Glamorous spa indulgences like the Signature Massage where fresh coconuts from the island are used. Delicious.

Exploring Aruba's rich history, culture and especially digging into all the yummy cuisines on the island - this is a food lover's island, for sure!


What We'd Change

Sometimes the resort is busy hosting corporate events and seminars, which will add a few more folks and lots of activity at night, but the level of service, the food quality and prime location more than make up for it.

Why You Should Go

This "One Happy Island" is easy to navigate - 19.6 miles long and 6 miles wide so getting out and exploring is a must do.

The water is safe to drink (they have their own filtration system so no hugging the porcelain goddess) and the US dollar is generally accepted everywhere (& they drive on the right side of the road - it's like home, but with 82 degrees and ocean views all day long).

Live La Vida Lucka at the 24-hour casino - 305 slot machines, 17 table games and 2 sports betting kiosks (maybe you'll win big and pay for your trip!)

24-hour in-room dining is always available and sometimes all you want to do is cozy up in your room, put on your PJs and take in the ocean views off your balcony.

Sweat it out at the fitness center where all the equipment is new and sparkly and you can join a yoga or Zumba class or try out tai chi on the beach.

Hotel Description

The Ritz-Carlton Aruba: Livin' Large on Aruba's Palm Beach

You might have to pinch yourself (but not too hard) when you see how off-the-charts fabulous this place is. The pampering begins the moment you arrive (thank you for the welcome drink!) and then it happens: your life of luxury starts to unfold before you. It's The Ritz, after all. The miles of white sugary sands and the smooth ocean waters out your back door are just the tip of paradise.

Aruba is a foodie's favorite destination and the delectable cuisines at The Ritz will keep your discerning palette more than satisfied. Who wouldn't drool over freshly made sushi with an ocean view, or lunch poolside where you can really dig in to some loaded nachos (and there's a kid's menu). Plus, most of these elegant spots include stellar views of the ocean.

If you see a Screaming Pelican, just know it's not a real, live pelican attacking a sunbather, but rather one of the cocktail concoctions you'll find at the Divi Bar (rum, vodka, banana liquor, more rum - you get the idea). It's true - the bar tenders at The Ritz are ready to mix and mingle the drinks with any twist you want.

Pool bar. Daily, 10:30am-5:30pm.

Divi Bar
Daily, 5pm-11pm.

Open 24 hours a day.


This is the very definition of luxury - miles of azure water and soft sugary sand on Aruba's Palm Beach with your own private lounger (or go really luxurious and rent a sweet cabana). The 2 pools aren't too shabby either - ocean views, complete serenity and cocktails delivered to you.
