Aruba Holidays

One happy island

A holiday to Aruba is the idyllic Caribbean getaway, and yet offers a little slice of European chic in amongst the traditionally tropical styling. Laze under postcard-perfect palm trees or grab a coffee on the cobbled piazza, ready for a full day of designer shopping. Aruba is always keen to show off its delightfully diverse culture.

Luxury Holidays to Aruba

Luxury Aruba holidays are the tropical island getaway of a lifetime, with a hint of European flair. Many resorts are styled to a traditionally grand, colonial design and feature luxurious outdoor pools, private sections of perfect white sand beaches and intensely rejuvenating spas. Plus, there are a few lavish casinos which promise to bring out the James Bond in everyone! Meanwhile on Aruba’s beaches there really is nowhere better to hold a dream wedding.

Dutch colonial-inspired architecture and outstanding natural beauty are the hallmarks of a holiday to Aruba, a beautiful Caribbean destination with a European twist. On a holiday to Aruba you’ll discover some of the most idyllic beaches in the Caribbean, the best of which are located at the southern tip, as well as vast deserts filled with cacti and the famous twisted divi-divi trees. Meanwhile, the seven-mile long beach that lines the west coast is filled with resorts brimming with exciting activities.
