Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services, announced the extension of its exclusive affiliation agreement with Eagle Aruba Resort & Casino in the Dutch Caribbean. The 362- unit shared ownership property is located a short distance from the white sands of the famed Eagle Beach, which is ranked as one of the best beaches in the world.
“The affiliation with Interval drives value across our business through sales and marketing, lead generation, employee development, and owner engagement initiatives,” said Richard Roy, general manager of the resort. “We have developed a strong relationship with Interval’s dedicated industry professionals, and know that we can count on them to support our success for many years to come.”
“Eagle Aruba’s leadership has overseen an impressive $54 million−plus renovation of the entire property. Every unit, common area, and amenity has been upgraded, and this investment will no doubt have a positive impact on the guest experience,” said Neil Kolton, Interval’s business development director, Caribbean and Southeast U.S. “We couldn’t be more pleased with Richard and his team’s commitment to delivering this exceptional quality product, which in turn reinforces Aruba’s reputation as one of the most desirable travel destinations in the Caribbean.”
The renovated property features spacious one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites overlooking a central landscaped courtyard and expansive free-form swimming pools. Completely refurbished suites offer spacious living rooms with designer furniture, fully equipped kitchens with upscale appliances, tiled bathrooms with high-end finishes, and a private balcony or patio. Additional enhancements include renovations of two existing pools, expansion of Uncle Tony’s Pizza restaurant, a new adult pool and state-of-the-art fitness center, and comprehensive upgrades to the lobby, activities center, barbecue and game areas, and landscaping.
Visitors to this tropical paradise can enjoy exploring the island’s rich heritage and architecture, bird watching in a protected sanctuary, touring a coconut plantation, or hiking through the Arikok National Park that covers 20 percent of the island. In addition, its white-sand beaches are some of the world’s best – Eagle Beach is ranked fourth in the Caribbean and number seven in the world in the “best beach” category by TripAdvisor’s® 2020 Travelers’ Choice Awards. Food lovers can sample the excellent local fare of the numerous restaurants, serving cuisine inspired by the destination’s diverse cultural influences.
