The Ritz-Carlton, Aruba is planning to open in November, the company announced this week.
The property will include 320 oceanfront rooms and suites and a 15,000-square-foot spa, a 24-hour casino and what will reportedly be one of the largest meeting spaces in Aruba, according to a release.
Of the 320 rooms, 55 will be suites, including Deluxe, Executive and Parlor suites.
The new resort, which will also include four restaurants, is set to open Nov. 2 on Aruba’s Palm Beach.
It is Ritz-Carlton’s seventh location in Caribbean and Mexico: the company currently has properties in Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, Mexico, the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. The latter is the site of the recently-opened Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve property.
