Best Aruba Beach Hotels with Spa

Best Aruba Beach Hotels (Bucuti & Tara Hotel)Bucuti & Tara Hotel, Theatre under the stars.

Updated, January 2024

These are the best Aruba beach hotels with spa. Choose from family friendly or adults only waterfront hotels. Most of the Aruba oceanfront hotels in Aruba are all inclusive. Why choose a hotel away from the beach when you are seeking a fun beach vacation?  And what makes Aruba a best waterfront destination?

About Aruba: The beaches of Aruba are some of the best in the world with its clear turquoise water. Maintaining its status as one of the best beaches in the world is Eagle Beach and Palm Beach. Great snorkelling is enjoyed by many as well as windsurfing and kitesurfing. In Aruba... it's all about the beach, the ocean and the sun. Being a Dutch colony, the people are friendly, government in steady, crime is extremely low and their motto is "One happy Island". 

Best time to visit Aruba: The weather is fantastic in Aruba. According to reports the best time is February to May. Since Aruba it is south of the hurricane belt, it very rarely gets the weather of other Caribbean islands. A seemingly ever present light breeze keeps it very comfortable. Watch the video!

Renaissance Wind Creek Aruba Resort (Reviews and Booking Link)

Aruba Beach Hotels Renaissance MarinaRomantic private island near Renaissance Marina Hotel

The Renaissance Aruba Resort and Casino in Aruba is quite different from any hotel in Aruba. To start, it has two zones and locations. One zone is family friendly (Renaissance Ocean Suites) and the other (Renaissance Marina Hotel) is adult only. The Renaissance Marina Hotel  is not a beach hotel. However, a water taxi will whisk you away to their beautiful 40 acre private island {Renaissance Island) where you can enjoy the private beach. This hotel has recently received a major renovation. The hotel itself is located in Oranjestad where you will find shopping, nightlife, a great variety of restaurants and more. The Okeanos Spa in the hotel is one of the best on the island. You may also enjoy a couples massage with the sound of the waves lapping against the rocks in your beach cabana at the Spa Cove on Renaissance Island.  So if you are looking for a good mix of centrally located convenience, nightlife and a beautiful private island to enjoy during the day, this resort could very well fit the bill. Our only suggestion is to make sure you book the right hotel as it could be confusing.
