All-Inclusive Resorts in Aruba for Pure Relaxation or All-Out Fun

It’s easy to see why Aruba is known as “One Happy Island”. Its sugar-white beaches, gentle trade winds and clear seas make it an ideal destination for those looking to balance relaxation and fun.

Just 20 miles long and renowned as incredibly safe, the island is easy to explore. That said, with our stellar line-up of all-inclusive resorts—we’re talking Instagram-worthy pools, seascapes and dining options on-site—you may not feel the need to venture from your hotel at all. 

Adults-only picks will appeal to groups of friends or couples looking for quality time together. Chill at the swim-up bar during the day, then spend the night dancing or trying your luck at the casino. For the wellness-focused traveller, you can opt for a resort with daily yoga and Pilates classes and restaurants that focus on local, organic produce and plant-based meals. Parents and children will love the resorts with kids clubs and special menus for the little ones, leaving more time to bond over fun activities like snorkelling, kayaking or pool volleyball. No matter your budget or vacation style, we’re sure you’ll find an all-inclusive resort in Aruba for one happy island adventure. 

Luxury all-inclusive resort in Aruba ideal for couples

Just a 20-minute drive from Queen Beatrix airport, the Riu Palace Aruba sits majestically on Palm Beach overlooking two large courtyard swimming pools and the ocean beyond. Programming for all ages will keep everyone entertained: choose from an introductory scuba diving lesson in the pool, go snorkeling in the clear Caribbean waters, or just hang out at the swim-up pool bar. 

When you’ve worked up an appetite, you can try some resort favourites like jerk chicken at the Main Restaurant buffet or creamy lobster risotto at Krystal Fusion, one of four on-site à la carte options. Back in your room, round the evening off with a glass of bubbly on your private balcony with a sea view before sinking into your king bed for a relaxing night’s sleep.
