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.

Hands down, the best experience in Aruba. They now offer huts that are private and can be rented, which is what we did for one of the days. You will never want to leave! I love that there is an adults only area - and...More

This island is amazing, so relaxed. Not only are the flamingos friendly but so are the Iguana. You can feed them all day. The boat trip to the island is so beautiful.

The private island is part of the renaissance hotel. A short boat ride takes you to this little island. Two sides separated by trails and little bridges offer something for everyone. Iguanas are everywhere and cool. Flamingos are on the adult side and beautiful to...More

Hello! My daughter has asked to stay at this resort for her 13th birthday she is obsessed with flamingos and it is the only reason we would be visiting Aruba to see the flamingos this summer! After reading about the flamingos being located on the adult side of the beach will we have interaction with them? We have another younger child we can entertain and loves beaches but she is expecting to spend time with them on the beach each day can anyone help us to know if this is actually realistic :) thank you!
