ORANJESTAD, Aruba — Amenities are no longer limited to what fits inside the mini-bar.
Maybe it’s returning to the adult-exclusive Renaissance Marina Hotel after a day of romance on the property’s private Renaissance Island with your significant other to find a bottle of champagne in your room. Perhaps it’s heading back to the family-friendly Ocean Suites after a day at the pool with the kids to find four movie tickets waiting for you on the bed.
Less than a year after announcing plans to offer visitors a unique blend of adult-exclusive and family-friendly property options, the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino has taken its service to the next level, allowing guests to customize their Caribbean vacation experience — whether it is two adults in the mood for a little romance or a family looking for some quality time together.
The Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino is now distributing two different door hangers chock full of offerings that will enhance the guest experience and bring it directly into the room. One is a listing of adult-themed options for guests of the Renaissance Marina Hotel while a second features family-friendly options and is distributed to Renaissance Ocean Suites guests.
Just like traditional “Do Not Disturb” signs, the new amenity hangers are left on the door knobs of the resort’s rooms. Resort guests simply check what amenities they want and worry no more; the rest is up to the resort staff.
On the adult side, the list includes tantalizing turndowns and indulgent adult add-ons:
- A rose petal turndown
- Chocolate-dipped strawberries
- Dark chocolate mousse blended with whipped cream
- Signature Sweetest Taboo (a variety of chocolate treats such as Belgian chocolate mousse, chocolate nut cake Häagen-Dazs chocolate ice cream)
- A selection of European cheeses and a bottle of red wine
- Half bottle of dessert wine
- Chocolate massage oil and chocolate scented candle
- Half bottle of champagne
- Full bottle of champagne
On the family side, the list includes something for all ages:
- Milk and cookies
- Galavu Movie selection plus pint of Häagen-Dazs Ice Cream
- Renaissance Cinema tickets for the family (4 total)
- Frisbee Sweet Pack
In December 2006, the resort announced its plans to offer separate areas on its property for adult-only and family vacationers. Rooms at the Renaissance Marina Hotel and several areas are adult exclusive while the Renaissance Ocean Suites are accommodating to families.
The Renaissance Marina Hotel boasts 290 rooms and 10 premium suites which include plasma-screen televisions. The Ocean Suites has 258 suites, each include a living room with a queen-size sofa bed and a mini-refrigerator with a separate master bedroom.
