The Aruban Resort (formerly known as La Cabana Villas) is a resort of 362 rooms located East of La Cabana Resort at Eagle Beach. Last August KL Holding Company from Las Vegas, Nevada acquired The Aruban Resort. Reportedly the developer was more interested in acquiring the casino and adjacent restaurant then the resort itself. However the government wouldn’t agree to those terms in the fear of having an abandoned resort-building in the prime area of Eagle Beach until another developer decides to purchase it. Unless KL Holding Company acquired all three properties no permit would be forthcoming.
With the purchase of La Cabana Villas KL Holding Company transformed it to: The Aruban Resort & Casino At Eagle Beach. The plans are to convert The Aruban in a luxury timeshare resort with a luxurious casino. KL Holding Company revealed the plans of the renovation which are pretty ambitious. Construction is currently ongoing.
Today I had the opportunity to take a peek in a 3-bedroom suite and must say that I’m impressed. Comparing the layout plans with the actual pictures of the rooms perhaps it’s not the same, however the rooms surely look good. I’ve seen the rooms before and now it looks way better. Below are 9 shots of a renewed room in no specific order.
The big mirrors/closet doors were kept intact.
New hardware such as flat screen television were added.
Another room with different hardware and the same flat screen tv.
The tiles and doors are the same as before.
