The property includes more than 100 guestrooms, a breakfast bar, 24-hour market and coffee-to-cocktails bar. Event spaces cater to business travelers, while the hotel’s convenient location makes it easy for travelers to enjoy Aruba’s beaches. The property is only a short drive from Baby Beach, one of the island’s most acclaimed beaches.

Hyatt Place Aruba Airport is part of a larger, mixed-use development that contains 21,000 square feet of office space; car rental facilities; an 8,000-square-foot food court; and retail shops.

“As the Hyatt Place brand continues to strategically grow in Latin America and the Caribbean, we are excited to further drive momentum by introducing the first Hyatt Place hotel to Aruba,” said Luciano Julio, regional vice president of operations, Hyatt Place and Hyatt House. “Hyatt Place Aruba Airport promises to help guests get the most out of their stay with stylish social spaces, spacious guestrooms and added conveniences that help guests balance the priorities of work and life while visiting Aruba.”
