Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa and Casino, located on 12 acres of beachfront property on Palm Beach, will undergo a renovation of its beachfront space to introduce a beachside adults-only pool. This is expected to be completed in Fall 2019.

The new recreation addition will complement the resort amenities already offered to guests, which include an 8,000-square-foot, multi-level pool complex complete with a three-story water slide, swim-up bar and tropical surroundings.

Overseen by EDSA, a planning, landscape architecture and urban design firm based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., the project will completely remodel a 43,000-square-foot area of the resort’s beachfront outdoor space.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

Plans for the tropical oasis include 10 private pool cabanas, each with a private entrance and stairway leading to an edge pool designed to make guests feel as though they are floating on the water. Additional features will include outdoor showers, a beach hut that will house towels for guests, use of the resort’s natural stone walls, and an outdoor space for weddings and events, equipped with audio visual capabilities.

According to EDSA principal Gregg Sutton, the vision for Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa and Casino’s new adult pool is to incorporate accent walls with stark stone, create a lush landscape, and add other water features to give the space a formal yet comfortable feel.

The project is slated to begin in May 2019 and will follow on the heels of the resort’s recently completed $21-million top-to-bottom enhancement of its 359 guestrooms, suites and Regency Club Lounge.

Gabriel Castrillon is Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa and Casino’s newly appointed general manager.
