Radisson Aruba completes $30m renovation

The Radisson Aruba Resort, Casino & Spa has announced the completion of the final phase of a USD 30 million property-wide renovation. The comprehensive, two-year renovation programme encompassed all guestrooms, suites and public areas.

Key upgrades to the property include renovated guestrooms and suites which boast updated décor intended to recapture the resort’s retro period originally masterminded by the renowned designer Morris Lapidus.  Contemporary amenities and cutting-edge technology enhance the distinctive design. 

New floor-to-ceiling soundproof glass windows and doors were installed and showcase spectacular ocean and garden views, and room interiors feature new furnishings, upgraded lighting, computerized climate control, flat screen TVs and iHome clocks, and Simmons Luxury Plush EverNu mattresses plus new bedding, carpeting and artwork. 

A redesigned open-air lobby now features sweeping views of the ocean, beach and pool, all guest corridors have been refreshed, and the resort’s tropical landscape has also been enhanced.

The Radisson Aruba captures the essence of Aruban charm with sumptuous cuisine in three restaurants, including Sunset Grille, the island’s only AAA Four Diamond restaurant and Mira Solo, the island’s only martini bar featuring a variety of 52 martinis.  Both Sunset Grille and Mira Solo have been renovated.


The resort’s versatile, multifunctional conference and special event space has been enhanced with new carpeting, updated décor and upgraded A/V capabilities, and casino improvements include new décor and state-of-the art gaming equipment. The resort has also expanded its unique interactive aviary program allowing guests to visit nine tropical birds living in appropriate habitats on-site.  These special guests include Macaws, a Sulfur-Crested Cockatoo, African Grey Parrots, a Cuban Amazon Parrot and a Brazilian Toucan.

The award-winning AAA Four-Diamond Radisson Aruba Resort, Casino & Spa sits on 15-acres with 1,500 feet of beachfront.  The hotel features 355 guestrooms including 30 luxurious suites and exclusive Plaza Club accommodations, and more than 35,000 square feet of indoor meeting space and landscaped outdoor function space.

The Grand Caribbean Ballroom accommodates up to 900 people.  Outdoor venue options include the largest expanse of white sandy beach on the island plus exotic lagoons, cascading waterfalls and manicured tropical gardens as well as a grand lawn and an elaborate, 30,000-square-foot pool deck with two freeform swimming pools.
