|The brand new Blue Residences Resort, the first upscale condominium property to open on Aruba’s Eagle Beach in 20 years, is celebrating the end of Winter by offering travelers beach-side luxe accommodations at affordable grand opening prices to defrost from the bitter weather that much of the U.S. and Canada experienced this Winter. Rates start at $225 per unit, per night for a deluxe ocean view hotel room, and from $350 for one-bedroom suites with fully-equipped kitchens, based on travel through April 26, 2014.Larger groups of travelers can book stays for up to six people in a two-bedroom suite for $500 per night, or up to eight people in a three-bedroom suite for $700. Reduced Summer & Fall rates are available for travel April 27 – Dec. 21, 2014. Blue Residences provides travelers with unobstructed views of the ocean in every unit, elevated ceilings in the bedrooms, living rooms and dining rooms, private Jacuzzi terraces, fully loaded kitchens featuring upscale appliances and wireless Internet throughout the property. On-site amenities include a protected beach and poolside butler service, concierge services and golf privileges at two nearby courses.
The property debuted its first tower – consisting of two five-bedroom penthouses, four three-bedroom penthouses, 12 three-bedroom units and 24 two-bedroom units, totaling 42 units – on March 1, 2014.
A second tower is scheduled to open in September 2014, while the third tower will open in Spring 2015. Upon its completion, the resort will boast 124 total units.
Units ranging in size from one to five bedrooms are decorated in a contemporary design and each feature elevated ceilings, a roomy balcony, upscale appliances and electronics, wireless Internet, fully-equipped kitchen, living and dining room, cable TV, and a washer and dryer. Ground floor suites also feature a private Jacuzzi terrace. Deluxe ocean view hotel rooms (no kitchen) are available as well.
Travelers can enjoy on-site amenities including a beach protected by a jetty, an infinity swimming pool, fitness center, mini market and deli and a landscaped sundeck. In addition to poolside butler service, guests have access to a Thrifty Car Rental desk, concierge services by De Palm Tours and can request pre-arrival grocery stocking and daily maid service.
