      Elements is an adults-only restaurant located on Eagle Beach, which has been voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. In terms of atmosphere, cuisine, and service, this restaurant may be in the top three I’ve ever been to. There’s even a “romantic dining option” which includes one price for one couple in a private palapa inclusive of five courses and a bottle of wine. Highly recommend the BBQ Eggplant Arepa appetizer, the Mango Chicken, and the Espresso Martini.

  • Renaissance Island, Aruba

      Renaissance Island, informally known as Flamingo Beach is exclusive to Renaissance resort guests or those able to grab the few day passes offered to non-guests. But you can also visit as a non-guest by booking an open-air couples massage via the Rennaisance Okeanos Spa. There’s nothing more romantic than a 50-minute massage in an open-air private cabana with your significant other while the waves crash in the background. And once your massage is complete - you’re able to spend the entire day on Renaissance island, flamingo and iguanas included. Both massage packages include one frozen drink each but one also included lunch - a great way to extend a romantic massage into a romantic day.

  • Fresco, Aruba

      Fresco is a small, open-air restaurant located on Renaissance Aruba property. During the day-time, it’s the primary location for hotel guests to grab breakfast. At night the red-lit restaurant offers a relaxing, breezy, pool-side date spot with an Italian menu. Highly recommend the caesar salad and the Ghetto Veccio pizza and one of their red wines.

      Picnic Aruba is simple: choose the type of picnic you’d like, one of their locations, and any add-ons. Day-of, head to your location and enjoy your fully prepped picnic. Not only is the food delectable- our brunch picnic included waffles, salami and gouda, an array of pastries, yogurt parfaits, fruit, coffee and tea - but the set-up is adorable and ridiculously Insta-worthy. For those who’d like to bring a picnic to their house rental or an alternative location, Picnic Aruba also offers baskets to go.

  • Pinchos Bar and Grill, Aruba

      Pincho’s sits on a pier off of Linear Park in downtown Oranjestad. At night, the walk along the pier is adjourned with lanterns and the waters below light up a bright blue. An episode of NBC’s, The Bachelor was even filmed here! The food is also fresh and delicious. Highly recommend the the Fish Trio and the BBQ Cowboy Pincho and the Mango Mojito and Mango Daiquiri.
