1. Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort, Spa and Casino
Hyatt Regency Aruba has a white sand beach to die for and views from every window at the front of the hotel, across the almost luminous azure blue sea. It is so good that we consider it one of the best Hyatt Regency hotels in the world to take a vacation.
The Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa and Casino is a 12-acre resort situated right on Palm Beach in Aruba. The beach is superb and very calm and offers every watersport imaginable. Plus, there is a water slide for the kids and restaurants within walking distance.
Rooms here are your standard Hyatt fare with a tropical touch, but it is the rooms with a balcony overlooking the ocean that are the rooms and suites to pick. That said, the standard rooms at this hotel are usually peaceful, with only the parrots to wake you up.
Food in Aruba is fairly pricey, so it may be worth paying in cash or on points for Regency Club Lounge access at this hotel. The free breakfast in the lounge (expect salmon, capers, a cheese board, fruit, bread cereal, and one hot egg dish) and filling snacks in the early evening, along with the range of free water, drinks, and snacks in the club during the day usually pays for itself. The food in the lounge is better than most Hyatt club lounges on American soil, and the view from the lounge down to the pools and beach is very special.
The luxurious ZoiA Spa features experiences for purification and detoxification, which are inspired by Aruba’s red mud and seaweeds. Four restaurants offer something for everyone; Sunday brunch at Ruinas del Mar is a must. At the casino, grab a hand-rolled cigar and shake the dice — and your hips, to live music. The hotel also has a casino with both slots and table games open from 12:00 pm – 4:00 am for adults 18 and up.
This Award Category 6 World of Hyatt hotel requires just 25,000 points per night.
2. Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour
Park Hyatt St. Kitts, which opened in November 2017, is set within Christophe Harbour on Banana Bay with unobstructed views of the Caribbean Sea and neighboring Nevis.
The resort is home to 126 spacious accommodations, comprising 78 guest rooms and 48 suites, each with a private balcony or terrace. Amenities include beachfront activities, adult and family swimming pools, the Caribbean’s first Miraval Life in Balance Spa, and The Island Fort by Camp Hyatt for kids.
The resort offers three signature dining experiences: an all-day restaurant, Fisherman’s Village ocean-to-table dining for lunch and dinner, and The Stone Barn fine dining experience. The Reception Hall features over 7,000 square feet of dedicated event space.

7. Hyatt Place Aruba Airport
While not our top pick in Aruba, our top pick is the Hyatt Regency Aruba, Hyatt is in the process of launching a Hyatt Place Hotel in Aruba at Aruba Airport.
The 116-room hotel will be the first Hyatt Place hotel in Aruba, adjacent to the Reina Beatrix International Airport (AUA). It will provide guests with a relaxing and uncomplicated place to pause before beginning the next leg of their journey. Alternatively, this is a cheap hotel to stay in on Aruba.
