There’s something very civilized about a cold beer delivered right to the beach by waiter on a Segway.

And it doesn’t hurt when that happens on one of the world’s greatest beaches.

This is Palm Beach, a sparkling stretch of almost blindingly white sand that’s home to the leading luxury resort in Aruba: The Ritz-Carlton, Aruba, a 320-room property that’s a simply terrific execution of a beach resort.

And then there are the amenities: the 15,000-square-foot spa, the superb new coffee bar, the casino, the lobby lounge, and, perhaps most importantly, BLT Steakhouse, which just might be the greatest steakhouse in the region.

A classic luxury hotel, a magnificent beach: that’s a special combination that adds up to what is the most luxurious resort in Aruba – and one of the Caribbean’s greatest beach resorts.
