Overview

Leave the cares of the world behind as you venture over to a private island complimentary to Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino guests. Renaissance Island features Aruba’s only private beaches and is just an 8-minute water taxi ride away. Here lies a true oasis with family-friendly beaches or beaches just for adults. Pamper yourself at the private Spa Cove, play a game of beachtennis, sit down to the delicious lunch specials at Papagayo Bar & Grill or have a drink at our newly added Mangrove Beach Bar, or just lie back and let the sun caress you. A day on Renaissance Island is a day well spent.

This was part of our Hotel experience and it was awesome! The "adult only" side has flamingos that children were welcome between 9-10 am to visit and feed. It was perfect because that was when they were hungry and friendly toward us. The "family friendly"...More

Since we stayed at the hotel, we had access to the island. Really was great experience. They separate into family and "adult only" sides. The flamingos are fun to feed. The ride was about ten minutes.

This island was probably my favorite part of Aruba. It is honestly breathtaking! The flamingos are just a bonus honestly, Renaissance maintains the island so well. Being on the island makes you feel like you're on a completely different world. The restaurant on the island...More

This island is simply paradise! Beaches, ocean and nature so beautiful, fantastic to enjoy from the natural shade of the many palm trees. Not to forget the famous flamingos plus other wildlife like beautiful birds, fish or iguanas.

Our family so enjoyed spending time on Renaiisance Island. We don't like crowded beaches and all the noise from the jet skis and other public venues. This was a nice quiet, clean beach just a short boat ride from the hotel. Much easier than our...More

Despite having to get to the counter extremely early to wait for tickets, the trip was a success. From the flamingos to the sweetest wait staff (Margareth), everything about the island was wonderful and worth the wait!

the flamingos are on the adult side of the island where the massage area is so you will definitely be able to see them

They are all the same and right next to each other. I would choose the one farthest out on the dock, but all four have recently been updated and looked identical when we were there last month.
