Overview

Leave the cares of the world behind as you venture over to a private island complimentary to Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino guests. Renaissance Island features Aruba’s only private beaches and is just an 8-minute water taxi ride away. Here lies a true oasis with family-friendly beaches or beaches just for adults. Pamper yourself at the private Spa Cove, play a game of beachtennis, sit down to the delicious lunch specials at Papagayo Bar & Grill or have a drink at our newly added Mangrove Beach Bar, or just lie back and let the sun caress you. A day on Renaissance Island is a day well spent.

Loved the boat ride over, the flamingos and the private beach! Some days the boat came right into our hotel, which was super cool. Our first day we picked the boat up across the street which was easy too.

We stayed at the Renaissance Marina, so just had to go down to the lobby, where the water taxi comes up a channel from the ocean about every 10 or 15 minutes, and picks you up for an enjoyable 10 minute ride to their private...More

The price to visit the island if not a Renaissance guest if a bit high, $150pp. If you are planning to spend the entire day there, it is worth the tranquility and views. The price includes lunch and a beverage. We rented a cabana and...More
