Leave the cares of the world behind as you venture over to a private island complimentary to Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino guests. Renaissance Island features Aruba’s only private beaches and is just an 8-minute water taxi ride away. Here lies a true oasis with family-friendly beaches or beaches just for adults. Pamper yourself at the private Spa Cove, play a game of beachtennis, sit down to the delicious lunch specials at Papagayo Bar & Grill or have a drink at our newly added Mangrove Beach Bar, or just lie back and let the sun caress you. A day on Renaissance Island is a day well spent.

If Flamingo Beach is a to-do that is very high on your list, I would consider staying at the Renaissance. It is free for people staying at their hotel because it is their private island that the hotel owns. Outside people are allowed to go...More

Totally worth the stay at Renaissance Aruba hotel. Taking the private boat every 15 min to the island, just walk around, check out the iguanas walking around everywhere and swim/selfie/feed the flamingos randomly slaking around. Best memories!!!!

Fantastic for snorkelling in the secluded, private beach lagoon. Adult side had pink flamingos and was excellent for swimming. Had to wait a while for the boat both ways though- seemed to be tea break time!
