Aruba Marriott: “One Happy Island”

Aruba Marriott Resort

If variety is the spice of life, Aruba is hot, hot, hot! This self-proclaimed “One Happy Island” is a blend of Caribbean ease, European sophistication and American comfort.  Though best known for the pristine beaches along its west coast, Aruba also has a rugged eastern coast and a colonial town center.  It is the rare island where a cactus, palm tree and native Divi-divi tree can all peacefully cohabitate.

Reflecting the diversity that makes this island unique, the Aruba Marriott Resort and Stellaris Casino, combines the offerings of a large resort with the exclusivity of a boutique hotel.  Bon bini:  Welcome…

The Perfect 10/10/10

Aruba Marriott Resort

October 10, 2010 is the perfect day to book your next vacation.

First, the folks at Marriott know that changing leaves and cooling temperatures inspire a yearning for tropical paradise.  To keep you happy and fill their resorts during this typically slower “back to school” period, the Marriott & Renaissance Caribbean and Mexico Resorts are offering the “Power of 10” promotion.  During this 24-hour offer, book a room at the regular rate and have the option of booking additional nights for $10/night (up to 3 additional nights for a total of 4 nights).  The offer is good for travel from October 11-December 20, 2010, when using promo code X77  at paradisebymarriott.com.   You can enjoy a little fun in the sun at this very discounted rate, at any of  these participating hotels:

  • Aruba Marriott
  • Aruba Renaissance
  • JW Marriott Cancun
  • Casa Magna Cancun Marriott
  • Curacao Marriott
  • Grand Cayman Marriott
  • Puerto Vallarta Casa Magna Marriott
  • St. Kitts Marriott
  • Frenchman’s Reef Marriott

In an effort to stay one step ahead of its sister properties, the St. Kitts Marriott Resort is sweetening the deal with a unique Twitter offer:  On 10/10/10, the first 10 people to tweet @StKittsMarriott with the hashtag #SKM10 will be able to book up to 10 nights for $10/night.  Those who qualify will be notified directly by the resort via twitter.

If your style is more classic sophistication than Twitter innovation, try the toll free number of the Kura Hulanda Resorts.  These two luxurious properties in the Dutch Caribbean island of Curacao are offering a room upgrade for only $10.  Stay near the culture, shopping and nightlife of the island’s capital at the  Hotel Kura Hulanda Spa and Casino; or overlooking the Caribbean Sea at the Lodge Kura Hulanda and Beach Club.  Call 1-877-254-3106 to claim your upgrade, valid for stays between October 15-December 23, 2010 and January 3-April 16, 2011.

Remember all these deals must be booked on 10/10/10.
