“This is the first luxury resort to open on Eagle Beach in 20 years,” said Herber Valkenberg, president of Icon Hotel Marketing, the North American representative for Blue Residences in Aruba. Tower One at this stunning property opens March 1, 2014; the second tower opens May 2014. The third debuts January 2015. In total, Blue Residences adds 124 units to Aruba’s condo-resort accommodations.

All three towers are seven-stories with unobstructed ocean views, elevated ceilings in the bedrooms, living rooms and dining rooms, private Jacuzzi terraces, fully loaded kitchens featuring upscale appliances and wireless Internet throughout. On-site amenities include a private beach protected by a jetty and poolside butler service, concierge services and golf privileges at two nearby courses. A full spa, fitness center and several top-notch restaurants will be on site at full completion.

Underserved Market Pleased with Blue Residences’ Arrival

Until Blue Residences broke ground, resort-style rental condos on Aruba were few and far between. Travel trade professionals herald this latest addition to a popular Caribbean destination with a high repeat rate as long overdue, especially for putting multiple families in one place. Bridal parties were equally underserved until now. The added bonus here is being on Eagle Beach, frequently listed as one of the top 10 beaches in the Caribbean. Blue Residences is not a time-share property. The condo units are individually owned. Upscale furnishing packages are regulated, which means the owners must have similar choices.
