The Palm Beach-area property has made some changes, including a newly-crafted menu, the addition of carry-out options at restaurants, and a reopened casino that is now the “premier non-smoking casino in Aruba”.

The property has a total of 320 guest rooms and suites, the aforementioned 24-hour casino, a club lounge and a spa with 13 treatment rooms and six eateries.

Those eateries include the signature BLT Steak, and Casa Nonna, the first Aruba outpost of the renowned New York Italian restaurant.

The resort has relaunched under parent company Marriott’s “Commitment to Clean” programme, a comprehensive series of measures that impact every facet of the guest experience, from social distancing in public spaces to the use of new cleaning technologies.

Aruba has reopened for travellers with a series of health and safety protocols ranging from required proof of negative COVID results prior to arrival to the purchase of a special “Aruba Travel Insurance.”
