The Best Parts of Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino
-Swimming: Want to dive right in? Guests have their choice of two resort-style pools. Discover an inviting lagoon with swim up bar at the Ocean Suites and an adult-exclusive oasis located at the Marina Hotel. If you prefer salt water, head to the salt water lagoon at the Ocean Suites or the private beaches on Renaissance Island. -Adult Exclusive Areas: Renaissance knows that adults sometimes need a place to call their own. Have fun, unwind and recharge with our many different adults-only locations. Experience total relaxation at the Okeanos Spa located within the Marina Hotel. Enjoy the rest of the hotel at our adult-exclusive pool, fitness center and lounge. After a long day, enjoy a late night bite with friends at the Midnight Grill. -Movies: The Cinemas, located in the Renaissance Marketplace, features six theaters showing the newest releases and a full-service concession stand for all those movie snack must-haves. The theaters also serve as excellent venues for meetings. Dinner & Movie packages are available in the state-of-the-art Crystal Theater, which can be reserved through the concierge located in the lobby level of the Marina Hotel. -Children’s Program: Patamingo Kids Club, the Resortʼs year-round childrenʼs program, features day and evening sessions with fun-filled activities for kids ages 5 to 12. Days are spent building sandcastles, playing games and creating cool island crafts, while nights are filled with movies and beach parties with new friends. Babysitting services are also available. This way, adult guests with children can enjoy their alone time knowing that their little ones are looked after. -Shopping: Guests that have been bitten by the shopping bug will find their remedy at over 100 boutiques and shops within the Renaissance Marketplace and Mall. Designer fashions, accessories, fragrances and jewelry make this the best place to find souvenirs for friends back home — or souvenirs for themselves. Open Monday-Saturday until 8pm, closed on Sundays. -Golf: The 18-hole Tierra del Sol Golf Course, a 10-minute drive from the resort, is a magnificent desert-links course designed by Robert Trent Jones II. The par-71 course offers 18 holes of championship golf that challenge players of all skill levels. Tee-times are also available at The Links, a 9-hole course 5 minutes from the resort. Renaissance Aruba is an access partner with both courses, so hotel guests can arrange tee-times through the concierge. -Nightlife & Gaming: As the sun disappears, guests begin arriving at BLUE – our tantalizing martini bar, located in the Renaissance Marina Hotel. Here, they can mix, mingle and meet over perfectly poured cocktails. Conversations lead into the night, and may lead them to the lounge for a late-night temptation. At the Renaissance Marketplace, enjoy different bars with indoor/outdoor seating and marina views. One casino would be just fine for most, but at the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino guests can get lucky at the 24/7 Crystal Casino, where theyʼll laugh and play in an elegant but laid-back atmosphere. Or they can roll the dice at the Seaport Casino — the only waterfront Casino on Aruba – which offers race and sports booking with live satellite links to most major events. Both casinos are open to guests age 18 and over.
Because you never know where or when your appetite is going to strike, the Resort offers a wide selection of restaurants and bars with menus and moods to fit any occasion:

-Renaissance Island: Aruba’s only private beach, Renaissance Island is a 40-acre oasis reserved exclusively for our guests. -Fitness Center: Located in the Marina Hotel, the 24/7 state-of-the-art fitness center lets guests keep up their workout routine even miles from home. A small fitness facility is available on Renaissance Island as well. -Okeanos Spa: When arriving at Okeanos Spa, you are entering a world where the healing elements of the tropics are used to calm mind, body and soul. Choose from a generous menu of treatments, from facials wraps, to massages featuring our world-renowned Aruban aloe. Take a short water-taxi ride to Renaissance Island, where guests can enjoy spa treatments overlooking the Caribbean Sea at our private Spa Cove. -Brushes Salon: After indulging the body, rejuvenate your hair at our full service salon, Brushes. Our skilled stylists are here to care for your hair and take your style to the next level. -Bars and Cafes: Located in the lobby of the Marina Hotel, BLUE is the true social center of the island. A modern decor welcomes guests to happy hour where they can order up a signature BLUE martini. A relaxed environment and sophisticated setting invite them to stay for a second, or third. If they get a little hungry with their drinks, they can enjoy sushi or a burger for lunch, and tapas for dinner. Sole, located at the Ocean Suites, offers guests pool-side meals, snacks and tropical drinks with a daily happy hour. Or guests can overlook the Crystal Casino in the Lounge Midnight Grill, which offers an adult-exclusive experience with live entertainment and a late-night menu. If guests want more, the Renaissance Marketplace also has several bar and café options to enjoy.
