Marriott’s Aruba Hotels Future Plans

As per a reader’s request, I’m looking today at Marriott’s Aruba hotels and resorts. I’m also sharing a few shots I took from the outside of the properties.

COVID-19 has all of Marriott’s Aruba hotels and resorts effectively closed. Due to the inbound flight restrictions, Marriott is not receiving guests. Officially Marriott is open for business, but more about that later.

Aruba Marriott Is A Teenager

Aruba Marriott is celebrating. It’s a teenager. Actually it’s been a teenager for five years. That’s right; Aruba Marriott is celebrating its 15-year existence in August. They are doing this by offering hot deals. I suggest you visit their website for more on that.

Since it opened in 1995 Marriott became one of the high profile resorts in Palm Beach, a trendsetter really. Till this day Aruba Marriott belongs to the principal hotel brands operating in Palm Beach. They managed to reinvent themselves, including a recent renovation of $50 million, adding high end “resort” Tradewinds Club on Marriott’s top floor.

New Marriott

The Marriott brand expanded beyond the hotel business alone. Marriott Vacation Club has been introduced on the island. In fact, Marriott Vacation Club (Marriott’s timeshare unit) is now even bigger than Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino, as the resort is called officially. Additionally, Marriott’s other brands are represented in Aruba as well: Renaissance and Ritz-Carlton (under construction). Kudos.
