Luxurious Accommodations in Aruba

I stayed in a spacious and well-appointed one-bedroom suite. The suite featured an incredibly comfortable California king-size bed, a modern bathroom with a walk-in shower, and a fully equipped kitchenette—perfect for those who like to prepare their own family-style meals. The living area was so cozy, with a large flat-screen TV and plenty of seating.

Exquisite Dining: Horizons Lounge and Passions on the Beach

One of the highlights of my stay was the dining experience at Amsterdam Manor’s two fantastic restaurants. 

Horizons is located on the rooftop of the resort and offers stunning panoramic views of Eagle Beach and the Caribbean Sea, especially at sunset. 

Horizons is perfect for those wanting a more luxurious dining experience with a tasteful menu. My three favorite menu items were the chicken Alfredo, Thai chicken and gourmet chocolate brownie with vanilla bean ice cream. This restaurant is in high demand and opens later in the evening, so make sure to book your reservation ahead of time. 

Passions on the Beach takes tropical dining to another level. Located right on the beach, The menu features travelers favorite meals. I particularly enjoyed the grilled chicken caesar salad, tofo scramble avocado toast with a side of coconut chia seed pudding and the strawberry cheesecake. There is nothing better than sitting at the dining table surrounded by the ocean.
