Destinations / Caribbean

Located on Aruba, Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort provides an island getaway for any type of traveler in need of an escape from everyday life. The AAA Three Diamond and pet-friendly boutique resort boasts six different modern room types among its 72 studios and suites while still maintaining its exterior Dutch Colonial architecture. The resort is currently going through a floor-to-ceiling renovation. Check out some of the highlights from the renovations.

 

Rooms

A redesign of the rooms is currently underway in all studios and suites, completely gutting everything from the original building built 32 years ago. This renovation includes artwork by local photographers, large smart TVs, rustic furniture and custom-made mosaic tile in every room. The bathrooms will also be larger with brighter lighting.

 

Pool and Public Areas

The pool has new, bright yellow umbrellas to match the island’s luminous skies. The freshwater and kiddie pools have been redesigned with new tile flooring and paint. A spa and gym will be added within the next year, and parking has been updated to create more space.

 

Passions on the Beach

The beach bar doubled in size, allowing for more efficient service to both people walking by on the boardwalk and guests lounging at the beach. The Passions Beach Deck has been revamped, as well. It now sports wood-like flooring, new furniture and locally crafted blue sunshades. It will also serve breakfast.

 

Mangos Restaurant & Horizons Bar

Mangos’ Kitchen was renovated to take advantage of the space to create an efficient and functional kitchen, upgrading the overall dining experience. Head up the stairs for a favorite happy hour location, Horizons Bar. The bar received a makeover with a 3-foot-by-6-foot expansion for happy hour and watching the sunset.
