Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa & Casino, a resort located on 12 acres of beachfront property on Aruba’s Palm Beach, has announced a top-to-bottom renovation of its 357 guest rooms and suites, as well as its Regency Club.
Spearheaded by Kansas City-based BLUR Workshop Designs, the $21 million redesign introduces modern accommodations while still paying homage to the island’s Dutch Colonial architecture and Caribbean accents.
The newly conceptualized guest rooms are bright with white oak furnishings and natural light. Other touches include a hand-woven, chevron wool rug, plush pillows and bedding, a classic tufted headboard and a large, oversized chaise lounge. Rooms also offer a 65” TV, glass faced-fridge, coffee station, numerous outlets and motion sensor lighting.
Tropical cues are evident throughout the space. Custom-made drapery includes a pattern of fading blues, from sheer to saturated, that mimics the effect of water to evoke Aruba’s turquoise ocean. Pops of color are found amidst the backdrop of a neutral color palette, while distressed wooden planks painted blue, pink and green are displayed upon the room’s wall to emulate the shiplap of the island’s local fishing boats.
Guestroom baths have also been completely reimagined. The enlarged bathrooms include quartz-stone countertops, white oak vanities and brushed nickel fixtures and accessories by Kohler. Above the vanity, mirrors were installed that are backlit and show the time on an integrated, digital clock.
Beyond the guest rooms, the resort has also welcomed a new Regency Club Lounge moved from the resort’s top floor to the ground level for easy access from the pool, beach and casino. Exclusively available to guests of the ninth floor Club Level, the Regency Club Lounge hosts complimentary continental breakfast, evening cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and more personalized concierge services.
