Renaissance Wind Creek Aruba Resort, Aruba

If you want to trace the footsteps of royalty, the Renaissance Aruba Resort and Casino might be your dream holiday destination. A 40-acre resort nestled on the beautiful Aruban shoreline, the Queen of Holland and Monaco’s royal family can both be counted among past clientele.

With two hotels making up this most exclusive of resorts, guests can choose between the Renaissance Marina Hotel, a beach-front oasis that is strictly adult-only, or the Renaissance Ocean Suites, the family-friendly option that’s located on the other side of the marina.

Being located right on the beach makes this a haven for water babies and not just because the glistening ocean is only a stone’s throw away. The Renaissance Marina Hotel features a stylishly designed infinity pool, whereas you’ll find two pools and a beach lagoon over at the Renaissance Ocean Suites. There’s also an on-site casino, shopping centre and, for the caffeine addicts, a Starbucks, so you won’t be separated from your creature comforts while you relax in paradise.
