‘One happy island’ is not just a slogan, but a way of life for an isle that is replete in white sandy beaches, swaying palm trees and untamed rocky landscapes. Aruba is part of a trio of islands affectionately known as the ABCs, 15 miles off of the coast of Venezuela. The joyful isle is very much a compact microcosm of the Caribbean, matching cute town life with excellent weather and friendly locals who cheer ‘Bon bini!’ – ‘welcome!’ with gleeful frequency. Oranjestad is the capital of the island and, by day, it’s great for shopping and dining, but by night, the city’s casinos and nightclubs come to life with a pulse of energy, lively dancing and infectious laughing beneath the clear moon sky. Aruba’s popularity has clearly grown over the past decade and, because of this, a throng of desirable high-end hotels and stunning gourmet restaurants have taken up residency on its welcoming shores, providing you with a wealth of luxury accommodation options to help make your stay a memorable one.
