Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino

Aruba Bound
Renovated Areas - Coming 2016

Our renovated Aruba hotel will welcome guests with an entirely new look inspired by the property’s rich history, combined with a modern beach esthetic. The new design will honor the resort’s original architect, Morris Lapidus. His work brought sweeping gestures to traditional architecture and audacious opulence to the world of resort design. The very essence of the Aruban beach, with its vast sands and signature breeze, will extend through our resort with furniture, materials and textures for a truly unique Caribbean vacation.

Whether you're new to Hilton Aruba or one of our many loyal guests, we look forward to welcoming you with our renovated facilities, world-class culinary offerings and genuine Aruban hospitality.
