If you want to feel completely relaxed during your holiday (and who doesn’t?), Aruba is the perfect place to go.
There’s no better destination to recharge and find balance than the One Happy Island. Imagine a great selection of gorgeous white sand beaches, constant cooling trade winds, an endless supply of sunshine… Aside from all the great things the island itself has to offer, there are also some fantastic resorts and businesses that make you even feel better. In this blog post, we will have a look at some of the best spas and yoga retreats in Aruba!
As soon as you touch down in Aruba for your long awaited wellness getaway, you’ll instantly start feeling the healing effects of the island. The sun on your skin and the fresh island air are enough to brighten your mood. Once you land, it’s only a short drive to your Aruba yoga or spa resort. Below are my top three of the best destinations for a Caribbean spa vacation.
ZoiA Spa is located at the Hyatt and is considered one of the best spas in Aruba by many. The name ZoiA stands for balance and poise. This is reflected in the natural treatments this spa offers. Enjoy soothing massages and revitalizing facials at this peaceful spa retreat.
At the Renaissance, you will find the Okeanos Spa. The spa offers many signature treatments, including services that detoxify, purify and polish for a relaxed healthy feeling. Guests of the Renaissance hotel and Okeanos Spa guests also gain access to private beaches on Renaissance Island, featuring funky flamingos and iguanas galore!
Eforea Spa can be found at the Hilton, one of the best Caribbean spa resorts. This spa is all about balancing your mind, body, and soul. The Japanese-inspired relaxation area really sets it apart, creating a tranquil atmosphere. Aside from signature treatments like their Aloe Vera and Rum Massage, Eforea Spa also offers salon services.
Even if you’re not staying at an Aruba spa resort, you can still have the perfect wellness vacation while you’re here. Most hotel spas can be accessed even if you are not a guest at the property. Additionally, there are spas that are not part of a hotel that you can visit. Here are some great options for spas you can visit during your trip.
Mandara spa is located at the Aruba Marriott Resort and is heavily influenced by Indonesian culture. There’s a very good selection of treatments here: From body wraps to hand massages and facials. With four couples’ rooms, feel free to turn your spa day into a romantic experience. This is the perfect place for a couples massage in Aruba.
Intermezzo Day Spa is another one of Aruba’s popular locations. You will feel your pre-Aruba stress melt away during your massage, mineral wrap, or body scrub. Since Intermezzo Day Spa has multiple locations, you can choose to be treated in an open air setting on the beach or in a comfortably air conditioned room.
If you choose to get pampered at The Spa at Tierra del Sol, you’re in for a treat. Aside from a nice selection of salon services, this spa offers a diverse assortment of massages, facials and other relaxing treatments. The fitness and pool facilities are included with your spa treatment, be sure to arrive a bit early so you can make the most of your experience.
Yoga is becoming increasingly popular around the world and Aruba is no exception. We have some of the best yoga experiences in the very best yoga locations; on the water, in the sand or with a view.
Offering all the ingredients for a perfect Caribbean yoga vacation, perhaps you can even find some new yoga methods that you have never tried before! It would be great if you could bring the learnings from Aruba’s Caribbean yoga resorts home with you to share them with others.
Below, I’ll share some of the One Happy Island’s most popular yoga experiences.
The Manchebo Resort has done a great job at creating a name for itself as one of the best Caribbean yoga Resorts. There’s a variety of different classes to attend ranging in intensity, so anyone can join. The open air shalas where yoga and Pilates is enjoyed overlook the picturesque Eagle Beach. Does it get much better than this?
Vela Aruba offers beach and stand up paddleboard yoga classes! Just imagine reconnecting with yourself in the purest way while listening to the waves or while gently floating on the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. It’s definitely worth trying out!
They often call Happy Buddha the hidden gem of yoga in Aruba. Located just a short distance from the hotel area, but still very accessible in the neighborhood of Palm Beach, it’s the perfect place to find inner peace. Not only does this studio offer top notch yoga classes in a calming environment, but they also teach other aspects of wellness like mindful eating and personal development.
