Bonbini, as the world's most welcoming people say, is an island like no other. Where you can dream all day, then play all night. Where your soul is captivated by the elements: Water, Desert, Stars, Sky. Where white satin shores and unbound desert beauty form a most improbable resort Paradise. Here, in the cool caress of trade winds or the shade of the divi-divi tree, beneath aquamarine waters or the stars of a Caribbean night, you'll find your perfect way to play.

Sit down to full plates of excellent food. Although most food is imported, with the exception of seafood, the options are very diverse and inventive. And there's always more than enough dessert to go around.
The Mandara Spa at Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris is the largest professional spa on the island. With its unique treatments and Balinese-style interior design, you'll get the attention you want and need.
Located within the adult-exclusive Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino and focusing on the healing nature of the tropics, Okeanos Spa offers a truly sophisticated experience. Choose from a wide variety of signature treatments and prepare to be pampered.
When you've had your fill of windsurfing and snorkeling in the turquoise seas, step off the sugary-white sands and onto the green for a game of golf.
On Aruba's northern tip, the championship 18-hole, par-71 course, Tierra del Sol, is one of the Caribbean's best golf courses. But if you want to play a course that's filled with charm, the nine-hole, par-36 Links at Divi Aruba is loaded with ocean views and six holes that play over the beautiful Caribbean waters.
In this tropical paradise, what you see is what you get - and most would agree that there's more than enough to love. For ideal swimming conditions, check out the shallow and calm waters of Baby Beach, a local favorite on the east end of the island, or the soft sands of Arashi Beach on the west end.
And visit the private Renaissance Island, exclusively for guests of the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino. There, you can explore 40 acres of nature and catch some sun rays on its two horse shoe-shaped beaches: Iguana Beach and Flamingo Beach.
The Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino faces the clear blue ocean on Aruba's most tourist-oriented shore, Palm Beach. The beach is nearly two miles long and comes complete with barefoot restaurants, overwater bars, dive shops and water-sports operations. It is also within walking distance of the most popular shopping district in Aruba.
