Embassy Suites by Hilton Debuts in Aruba
Hilton (NYSE: HLT) announced recently the opening of Embassy Suites by Hilton Aruba Resort, the 330-all-suite resort nestled between the dazzling waters of the top-rated Eagle Beach and the scenic lagoon of the Bubali Bird Sanctuary. The opening marks the first Embassy Suites by Hilton property in Aruba and second Hilton hotel on the island.
“We are delighted to continue our expansion in the Caribbean with the opening of the newly built Embassy Suites by Hilton Aruba Resort,” said Jorge Giannattasio, senior vice president and head of Caribbean and Latin America. “With more than 25 properties across the Caribbean, Hilton hotels are poised to welcome travelers in some of the most sought-after destinations.”
Located just six miles from the Queen Beatrix International Airport which receives more than 100 direct flights from major cities around the world, Embassy Suites by Hilton Aruba Resort is located across the street from the white sands of Eagle Beach and a short ride from Palm Beach where guests can experience Aruba’s flavors and nightlife. The resort introduces a more home-style experience to the island, inviting guests to experience the local culture and natural beauty of island life, with nearby major attractions including the idyllic Bubali Bird Sanctuary, California Lighthouse, Butterfly Farm and Alto Vista Chapel. With its large guest rooms, central location and stunning views of the Caribbean, this hotel serves as the perfect beachfront homebase.
“Embassy Suites by Hilton Aruba Resort is an exciting new hotel that brings the industry-leading all-suites brand to one of the most sought-after Caribbean destinations,” said Bonnie Campagnuolo, brand leader, Embassy Suites by Hilton. “The highly-anticipated property builds on the brand’s impressive existing beach presence and is the perfect choice for both business and leisure travelers seeking a unique island experience.”
Embassy Suites by Hilton Aruba Resort features 330 two-room suites, with a contemporary design inspired by Aruba’s iconic beaches and the Bubali Bird Sanctuary that uses a neutral and ocean blue color palette, wood accents and sea life art to create a calming, warm and inviting environment that feels like home. Rooms sleep up to six guests and are available as two queens or one king bed, with the living area offering extra seating and a sleeper sofa. Dining areas offer a wet bar outfitted with a microwave, mini-fridge and coffee maker to create the perfect homebase to socialize with family and friends. Most rooms offer balconies, designed to enjoy the expansive views of the ocean, nature or pool from coffee at sunrise to a cocktail at sunset.
With five food and beverage outlets on property in addition to room service, guests can choose from a variety of dining experiences to suit their tastes. As an Embassy Suites by Hilton hotel, guests can enjoy the brand’s signature complimentary breakfast with both made-to-order items as well as a breakfast buffet each morning at Brickstone, while looking out on to the Caribbean Sea.
The Grab & Go market offers coffee drinks, sandwiches, pastries and plenty of snacks to bring along for a day at the beach. Guests spending a day by the pool can sip drinks at the pool bar, or stop by Splash, a snack and grill restaurant that overlooks the pool. Before heading to dinner, guests can visit the lobby bar for a complimentary evening reception featuring drinks and light bites, and incredible sea views.
