The renovations of the nearly 600-room property in Aruba include upgrades to its guestrooms, lobby and landscaping around the property.

The resort offers an array of amenities including the full-service Excelsior Casino, spa services, fitness facilities, five on-site restaurants and three bars, three pools and Jacuzzis, arcade and free Wi-Fi connectivity. Additional on-site recreational activities include sunset meditation, yoga classes, wine tasting, dance classes and a range of complimentary on-site kids’ activities such as sand castle contests, pool volleyball, Bluebeard’s Scavenger Hunts, and necklace making.

The Holiday Inn brand was conceived 62 years ago for traveling families. IHG invested in the $1 billion Holiday Inn global brand relaunch, the largest in hospitality history, which included the transition of the Holiday Inn Resort brand from the Holiday Inn SunSpree Resorts brand in 2007. With the relaunch, new hotels feature a contemporary image with emphasis on arrival and welcome services, guestroom and guest bath comfort and a redesigned logo and signage.

IHG has nearly 200 hotels in Mexico, Central and South America and the Caribbean, where its brands have been serving guests for 65 years. IHG has hotels situated in nearly every key market throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.
