Spring break isn’t just for friends home from college — there’s a whole world of family-centric locales and promotions your crew should take advantage of this season. When planning a warm-weather vacation when the kids are home, few choices guarantee more sun and fun than Aruba.
Following an impressive renovation, Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino has a Family Escape offer just in time for spring break, including 20 percent discounts and a slew of amenities:
- Daily full buffet breakfast for two adults and two children at Laguna Restaurant.
- One 80-minute coconut couple’s massage with childcare included at ShocoLand Adventures and Games Kid’s Club.
- A Hilton Aruba beach palapa for four days.
- De Palm Island family full-day excursion, including visits to the island’s beloved flamingos, water park and slides, banana boat rides, snorkeling and more.
Guests must book by Feb. 29, and stay for a minimum of five consecutive nights March 9–April 26. Rates begin at $765 per night.
The property is made for entertaining guests of all ages and interests, so in addition to the offer inclusions, families have a whole world of opportunities. Relax on the beach or by one of the resort’s two pools; hop on complimentary bikes and explore the island, check out the nearby butterfly farm and see more of the stunning countryside with some helpful directions from the resort’s concierge team; or check out the casino — make your own itinerary, you’re on island time.
The Hamilton Hotel, located steps from the White House, was the perfect place for a relaxing weekend getaway. Upon arrival, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful with a quick check-in process. The lobby was immaculate with shining marble flooring, velvet couches and an arched ceiling design that brought a sense of sophistication. For added security, the elevators are only accessible to those who have a key card to a guestroom.
Luxury destinations around the country partnered with Bryte to introduce The Restorative Bed and enhanced sleep programming at their hotels. The revolutionary, AI-powered Restorative Bed uses real-time technology to intuitively adjust based on the individual’s needs and preferences. An embedded sensory network detects biometrics, like heart rate and breathing patterns, when a sleeper enters the first stage of sleep, triggering cooling features and lulling sleepers into deep sleep. Computer-controlled air cushions alleviate pressure points, and the technology also leads sleepers naturally out of sleep.
