Taking a stage further the theory that holidays recharge the batteries, Aruba is ensuring visitors are chilled to perfection.
Aruba for the fourth year running designated June as Aloe Wellness Month, under which selected hotels offer recharging activity sessions, while independent organisations are also promoting special deals. Meanwhile, chefs across the island are focusing on healthy cuisine and spa centres are demonstrating the healing wonders of a relaxing aloe vera treatment – created from the plant which grows in abundance.
And on top of the components of the designated programme, Aruba’s natural calming elements – warm waters, constant sunshine and tropical temperatures with cooling trade winds – will lift the spirits, no matter what other treatments are chosen
Eleven of the island’s top hotels are taking part in the programme, together with spa centres and sport and activity organisations. Aruba hotels range from boutique properties to high-rise branded resorts, with a spa and fitness centre in-house. During Aloe Wellness Month, hotels are offering a special booking rate, accompanied by spa credits, complimentary yoga classes, cooking demonstrations with top chefs and a focus on healthy cuisine and other health-related activities.
