The newest Ritz-Carlton in the Caribbean is set to open its doors next week.

The Ritz-Carlton Aruba will officially open on Nov. 22 on Aruba’s Palm Beach.

The 320-room property will have two swimming pools, a 15,000-square-foot luxury spa, a 15,000-square-foot casino and a 7,500-square-foot ballroom, according to the company.

The property’s dining options will include Solanio, an Italian-style eatery, Les Crustaces, a seafood restaurant, Madero Argentinian Grill and Divi Bar & Lounge, set in the lobby.

A starting rate for a king-bed guest room was $649 per night, according to the resort’s Web site.

Ritz-Carlton’s most recent property to debut in the Caribbean was the Ritz-Carlton Reserve Dorado Beach in Puerto Rico, part of a wave of hotel growth for the company globally.

The Aruba resort is the company’s fifth on the Caribbean Sea, along with the Puerto Rico property and resorts in Grand Cayman, St Thomas and Cancun.
