Trankilo, the new adults-only pool, includes 10 outdoor, spacious cabanas accommodating up to six guests and are complete with a private entrance and stairway, ensuring privacy and peace of mind as the hotel rolls out a redesigned pool and beach experience to adhere to new cleanliness guidelines. Highlights of each 240-square-foot cabana include a semi-private shower, smart TV, Bose Bluetooth sound system, minibar stocked with water, sodas, local beers and wine, crudités, aloe products, lounge chairs, and a sofa. Guests can utilize the private butler that exclusively caters to guests renting the cabanas and can enjoy spa treatments in select cabanas as well.
The new ZoiA Spa encourages guests to find balance through the spa’s emphasis on energy, purity, serenity and devotion. It is the ideal place to unwind and take part in self-care. The spa menu offers a variety of treatments ranging from Aruba Sun Rescue which uses local aloe to ZoiA HydraFacial that utilizes rich antioxidants and deeply hydrating hyaluronic acid. An additional highlight is Massage den Awa, a gentle form of body therapy performed in the Trankilo pool for deep relaxation that combines elements of massage, shiatsu, and muscle stretching. For guests’ peace of mind, spa therapists use face masks, shields and gloves. An air purifier is designed to sanitize and purify the air through patented UV germicidal technology in each of the six treatment rooms. Also, the spa’s salon for hair appointments as well as manicures and pedicures now includes a divider between guests for social distancing.
The resort also launched two intriguing new ways to dine safely outdoors while soaking in ocean breezes and sunsets. Guests can enjoy Dining Under the Stars on the Dos Playa Deck between the pool and the beach which includes a three-course meal and a range of dishes from seafood to fresh salad and select cuts of meats. Piet’s Pier Bar, one of the best places on the island to watch the sunset, now offers dinner for the first time.
Hyatt Regency Aruba recently hired a Wellness and Wellbeing Manager who focuses on working with guests’ wellbeing while on property around three key areas: feel, fuel and function.. The manager creates stress-free experiences related to wellness and mindfulness such as aerial and beach yoga, meditation, and water and land excursions. The resort will also be welcoming a Guest Experience Manager who will be acting as a private concierge and assisting guests with booking experiences on property as well as to safely explore the beautiful island of Aruba.
The newly enhanced casino has 44 new state-of-the-art slot machines that are all strategically placed throughout the venue. The non-smoking casino also offers a new, redesigned layout with additional slot machines, gaming tables and video poker machines to comply with the new safety protocols.
The AAA Four Diamond resort now has 10,000 square feet of spacious outdoor venue options, in addition to the already existing 33,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space available at Hyatt Regency Aruba. The Water Complex Deck, Dos Playa Deck and Events Lawn are ideal for an array of socially distanced events ranging from intimate weddings to corporate retreats. The resort is setting up event spaces with social distancing in mind, limiting capacity and posting social distancing signage throughout. Hyatt Regency Aruba is also offering virtual meeting options for event planners and even more locally produced food items.
“We are excited to welcome guests back to Hyatt Regency Aruba after our multimillion-dollar renovation. We have worked tirelessly over the last few months to reimagine the resort to meet the needs of today’s travelers and offer the seamless experience the Hyatt Regency brand is known for,” said Gabriel Castrillon, general manager of Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa and Casino. “We have added new experiences and modified some of the existing activities to ensure that guests feel confident in our care while visiting our resort.”
Hyatt Regency Aruba incorporated the updated guidelines from Hyatt’s Global Care & Cleanliness Commitment that focuses on safety first and wellbeing always. The resort implemented these measures as providing clean environments to guests and colleagues is a top priority. Hyatt Regency Aruba created a Hygiene Team that meets on a daily basis to discuss all guidelines and practices being put into place. Each member of the team is assigned to a specific area of the resort and meets with all departments at the resort to provide training. The property now has hand sanitizer stations throughout the resort, enhanced food measures and hygiene protocols, has removed select high-touch items from guestrooms, conducts frequent cleaning of public spaces and guestrooms, performs wellness and temperature checks, added social distancing signage, now offers knock-and-go room service, and requires usage of masks by staff, among others. In addition, Hyatt Regency Aruba provides care packages in guestrooms with face masks and a bottle of hand sanitizer.
Aruba Tourism Authority has implemented new regulations for individuals arriving in Aruba, including requiring travelers to complete an online Embarkation/Disembarkation (ED) card. Under the current process, visitors to Aruba will have to complete a health declaration form 72 hours before their trip, provide documentation of the requisite health insurance coverage as required by the government of Aruba, and upload a negative PCR test 72 hours prior to their trip or take a test at the airport.
