The long-awaited Ritz-Carlton, Aruba, arrives on Palm Beach.

Why Go: Aruba sits outside of the hurricane belt and boasts sunny, 85-degree weather nearly 365 days a year. The Dutch island is a favorite for sprawling, family-friendly resorts, and the seven-story Ritz-Carlton is no exception. With 320 rooms, four restaurants, a 13-treatment-room spa, and a casino, the U-shaped yellow building perennially buzzes with activity. Find the resort on the wide, southwest-facing Palm Beach, famous for its white sands, sunsets, restaurants, shops, and nightlife.

What to Expect: All with at least a partial ocean view, the rooms are what you would expect from Ritz-Carlton, with contemporary decor subtly inspired by the resort’s island setting. Guests can book accommodations on the 7th-floor Club Level for access to the Club Lounge. Highlights of the 2,390-square-foot Ritz-Carlton Suite include a wraparound balcony and outdoor shower. Calm seas along Palm Beach ensure easy access to water sports activities.

How to Get There: Queen Beatrix International Airport is just 15 minutes away by car. (888.241.3333, www.ritzcarlton.com)
