Former Radisson Aruba Re-Launches as Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino
Hilton Hotels & Resorts has assumed operational control of the former Radisson Aruba hotel, re-launching the property Wednesday as the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino, the company announced in a statement.
The 355-room hotel on Aruba’s Palm Beach is owned by Aruba Growth Fund, an organization representing the country’s main pension funds, said Hilton Aruba officials. Terms of the property’s purchase were not released. The hotel will be managed by Hilton Worldwide, parent company of Hilton Hotels & Resorts.
Designed by famed resort architect Morris Lapidus, the hotel features a large pool complex, a children’s club, a water sports and dive center, a spa, a casino and multiple dining options.
“This project is a magnificent addition to our Caribbean portfolio with its remarkable connection to the island’s past and exceptional team members who bring traditional Aruban hospitality to life,” said Tom Potter, Hilton Worldwide’s senior vice president, Caribbean, Mexico and Latin America. “We are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this hospitable community.”
