Welcome home is what you may say to yourself when surveying the vibrant property of Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort. Ideally situated in Oranjestad, Aruba, just steps away from the famed Eagle Beach, Amsterdam Manor is the perfect place to make yourself at home for any length of time.
It might be possible to spend the majority of your stay in the soft white sand, with roughly 70 paces separating you from the heralded crystalline shores. A day at the beach can easily transform into an evening spent surfside with dinner reservations at Passions on the Beach, Amsterdam Manor’s locally acclaimed restaurant. An easy stroll back to one of the resort’s 72 studios and suites, perhaps capped off with a short stopover at Horizons Bar, will leave any guest feeling like they’ve found their way on island time.
Amsterdam Manor is a boutique, pet-friendly, and AAA Three Diamond beach resort suited to singles, couples, and families seeking a warm welcome to the island of Aruba. With six different room types to choose from and each room completely equipped with a modern kitchen (including a stove, refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker), balcony, or terrace, there are options for every traveler. WiFi connectivity makes a work/play stay entirely possible, and the colorful Caribbean decor breathes life into every corner of this intimate and luxurious resort. Guests can feel comfortable and at ease preparing for their day, whether it includes relaxing at one of the best beaches in the world, attending virtual meetings oceanside, or taking excursions around this jewel of an island.
With so much to do and see in the bustling town of Oranjestad, travel goers seeking excitement during their stay will not be disappointed. High- end shopping centers and art galleries pepper the colorful sidewalks of Oranjestad, and restaurants and bars abound at every corner. The concierge services at Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort help make scheduling your days a breeze, with helpful staff that provide assistance with renting a car or booking excursions.
There are activities galore for every traveler’s taste. For the not-so-faint of heart, explorers can seek out an off-road Jeep Safari experience with De Palm Tours. Imagine spending the day traversing the rugged interior of Arikok National Park, with the wind blowing through your hair as your open air vehicle draws closer and closer to Aruba’s famous natural pool. Once there, adventurers can explore swimming and snorkeling in the clear jade waters before taking another off-road excursion on their return trip to the resort.
For those who envision a day out at sea, Pelican Adventures will take you on an “Aqua Champagne Brunch Cruise.” This four hour excursion covers all the bases of an ideal island vacation with an open bar, deliciously prepared food, and three guided snorkeling stops at reefs and wrecks alike. Spending the day on the turquoise ocean, sipping on mimosas, and soaking in the sounds of the steel drums, all from the comforts of a catamaran cruise, sounds like a dream anywhere, let alone on the dreamlike waters of Aruba.
While Amsterdam Manor’s concierge services take the guesswork out of your holiday planning, the resort also provides a plethora of dining options for every meal of the day. Guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner beachside at Passions on the Beach. Of course, any beach resort would be replete without the addition of an incredible beach bar and Amsterdam Manor delivers with Horizons Bar, a cozy oceanfront perch from which any guest is welcome to gaze at the ocean or just people watch. Small bites, delicious cocktails, live music, and daily Happy Hours make Horizons Bar a mainstay of any vacation at Amsterdam Manor. For those seeking a taste of island life outside of the resort, Quinta del Carmen is a feast for your eyes and appetite. The upscale and unique fine dining experience is housed in a recently restored historical mansion that stands .5 miles from the doors of Amsterdam Manor. Quinta del Carmen’s extensive menus, wine list, and beautiful historic setting make it a dining destination for travelers and locals alike.
Guests who call Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort home for the duration of their stay benefit from the stellar location, premier hospitality, and luxurious amenities. But they are also choosing to spend their time at an eco-friendly resort that holds a Travelife Gold Award and is the first to meet the Master Certification requirements of the EarthCheck company. Amsterdam Manor identifies and upholds the sanctity of protecting the flora, fauna, and marine life of the beautiful island of Aruba and it also takes consistent effort to be a sustainable leader in its community.
From the amenities to accommodations, dining experiences to aquatic excursions, Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort remains an unparalleled vacation option for any visitor to the beautiful island of Aruba. Whether traveling for work or play, alone time or family time, every guest will leave Amsterdam Manor feeling enlivened and refreshed by their time at this colorful Aruban resort.
