Aruba is one of the best Caribbean islands to visit for a honeymoon because of many different factors. The weather seems to be perfect 75% of the time and it has clean, white beaches to enjoy. You don’t have to worry about inhospitable locals and the chances of hurricanes are very low because of the island’s location.
Another great reason to choose Aruba as your honeymoon destination is the great all-inclusive resorts. This list will give you the top five resorts to stay at for a relaxing and romantic getaway that you won’t forget.
Bucuti and Tara Beach Resort
This resort is adult’s only so you can be assured of having some romantic moments uninhibited by curious or noisy children. This resort pulls out all the stops to ensure that you feel pampered and luxurious.
This resort is located at the end of the popular Eagle Beach, making it a bit quieter than the others on the island. When you wake up in the morning, you can take advantage of the daily breakfast buffet. After having fun on the beach, you can visit one of the two restaurants in the resort for lunch and then later again for dinner. Every Monday at Elements, they serve an authentic Aruban dinner.
Speaking of fun, their popular bar, Sandbar has happy hour every day and music to accompany the drinks. They also have a free movie night under the stars Saturday and Wednesday night.
This resort is romantic enough with all the wonderful amenities but if you want to take it up a notch and really create a memory of a lifetime, Bucuti offers a romantic dinner on the beach with your own private palapa and waiter. This is not included in the cost but still a great option to consider.
Manchebo Beach Resort and Spa
If you love to eat high class food, this resort is known to be the resort in Aruba with the best all inclusive fine dining experience. Their all-inclusive plan includes a choice of breakfast buffer or a la carte. Lunch can be eaten at the Pega Pega café right on the beach. For dinner you have a choice of three restaurants, all with exquisite foods to offer. If you stay four nights, Manchebo will even treat you to a dinner in town at a restaurant of your choice. This plan also includes open bar for wine, liquor, and cocktails.
Known for its health and wellness attributes, Machebo offers vegan dishes, complimentary yoga and Pilates classes at the spa, and healthy smoothies free of charge. If you want to relax but still keep your health routine in check, this resort is for you.
You can reserve the honeymoon package at this resort which includes fresh flowers, chocolate covered strawberries and champagne on your arrival, a couple’s massage, breakfast in bed, a candlelight dinner and a sunset cruise. It doesn’t get any more romantic than that!
Aruba Ocean Villas
This resort has a slightly different feel than others on the island. It was created by an artist native to the island. Each villa is unique and designed by the artist. If you want a more local feel to your stay but still enjoy luxury and relaxation, this resort would be your choice.
There are only seven villas in this resort, so if you want to stay, you’ll have to reserve your room far in advance. Each room is its own building, private and separate from the others. They are connected by walkways over the ocean.
The restaurant connected to the resort is not your typical resort restaurant. Again, you’ll experience a much more local flair in the food with delicious seafood dishes. Each room is stocked with A/C, WIFI, and special touches unique to them. This resort is definitely for those who are looking for something more private for some alone time.
Rui Palace Aruba
This all-inclusive resort is huge! It has over 400 rooms and offers so much that it can be overwhelming. But you’ll be assured to never be bored! They have live music day and night. You can do land sports like beach volleyball or table tennis, or if you prefer you can use the ocean as your playground and go kayaking, diving, or paddle surfing.
The Renova Spa is free to use for the sauna and jacuzzi. They have a gym, stocked mini bars in each room and plenty of loungers by the pool. When hunger strikes, you are guaranteed to be fed with 24/7 snacks available and room service from 7am to 11 pm. They have a swim up pool bar, patisserie, ice cream parlor, and five restaurants to choose from.
As newlyweds, all you have to do is present your wedding certificate of within 90 days from your arrival and you get a free room upgrade, welcome gift, bottle of tequila, late checkout and a $35 couples massage certificate.
If adventure is something you and your honey share enjoying, Barcelo will definitely accommodate that desire. You have direct access to the beach from the resort where you can take advantage of water sports like windsurfing, snorkeling, diving, and kitesurfing. The resort also has beautiful natural shaped swimming pool that has swim up bars and loungers all around it.
The resort offers water polo, beach volleyball, two tennis courts, darts, kayaking, and boules. If you want to experience a more adrenaline pumping experience, you can be set up with a skydiving opportunity for a little extra. If you are scuba divers, the Antilla Shipwreck is the largest in the Caribbean and has been there since WW2.
This resort also has a newly refurbished casino with all the tables you’d expect, from blackjack, roulette, poker, and 120 slot machines to choose from. The casino offers entertainment and a sports bar.
