Formerly Aruba Sonesta Beach Resort
|ORANJESTAD, ARUBA (November 17, 2003) - The Renaissance
Aruba Beach Resort & Casino is pleased to announce it is currently
finalizing a $15 million dollar renovation. From October 30
- November 2, 2003, as part of the final phase of the resort's rebirth,
the property hosted 30 key travel industry influencers who participated
in the resort's "Advisory Council." Throughout the weekend, discussion
topics ranged from the relaunch of the "brand new" piece of paradise to
raising awareness of the resort's stellar amenities, array of activities
and the property's expansive physical presence.
The resort's extensive renovation, which began in June 2003, encompasses all guest rooms, common areas, select restaurants and lounges, pool and deck areas, and landscaping. The renovation activities will be completed floor-by-floor, and broken into two phases. Phase 1 of the renovations was completed in October 2003, and Phase 2 is set to be completed by Dec. 2003.
The Renaissance Aruba Beach Resort & Casino's 560 rooms and suites are redesigned with warm and inviting color schemes, including upgraded bedroom and bathroom amenities, and new soft goods, furniture and high speed internet access.
