Best Adults-Only Resorts in Aruba


Lounging by the pool, floating in the ocean and fully enjoying an easing spa treatment all require complete relaxation and temporarily letting go of responsibilities. An adults’only beach vacation is the epitome of just that—a totally relaxing escape without your usual duties, whether it be parenting, household chores or work stress.  Aruba’s adults-only beach resorts offer seaside indulgence without the commotion that comes with children and underage travelers. After dining on Eagle Beach, riding an ATV through Arikok National Park or watching the windsurfers on Hadicurari Beach, you’ll have a peaceful retreat at the end of the day.
