Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa
This relaxed resort is in one of Aruba’s best spots, sprawling out onto the glorious Eagle Beach. Grab a hammock and unwind on award-winning sands – this beach was voted 3rd in the world’s Top 25 Beaches at the Travellers’ Choice Awards 2019. The hotel is just 15 minutes’ drive from the capital, Oranjestad where you’ll find shopping and nightlife.
All dining is à la carte, with a different restaurant for each meal. Breakfast is served at the open-air poolside Ike’s Bistro; for lunch, choose from American, Asian and European light bites at the relaxed Pega-Pega Grill & Beach Bar, which also features live music and Happy Hour. For dinner, stop off at the Omakase Sushi Bar, visit The Chophouse for American beef and fresh seafood, or return to Ike’s for Mediterranean- and Caribbean-fusion dishes – the chefs have also introduced a new vegan menu. Choose All Inclusive to get all drinks included at the premium open bar. Paella Night at Ike’s Bistro comes with a welcome glass of sangria and live Spanish guitar music.
Manchebo has two beachside areas dedicated to yoga and Pilates as well as an infinity freshwater pool with lounge beds. There’s an air-conditioned fitness room overlooking the beach, and shaded beach cabanas for indulgent couples’ massages at the exotic open-air Spa del Sol. Join new sunrise yoga classes plus special monthly wellness events including Full Moon Yoga and meditation workshops. Rooms here are in low-rise buildings and have views of either the tropical gardens or the ocean. They come with a balcony or terrace and have a modern style, with features including free Wi-Fi, an iPod docking station and a coffee maker.
