Faboosh Girlfriend Getaway in Aruba

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Aruba Tourism Authority. All opinions are 100% mine.

From Aruba with love…

How do you take your poolside fun? How about dipped in relaxed glam and drenched with sun-kissed luxury? Aruba is one of GoGirlfriend’s favorite beachy islands with sinfully luxurious spas and long stretches of beach where we can indulge our margarita-sipping, sushi-nibbling selves.  We’ve been to Aruba twice (not nearly enough) and the island never fails to meet our girlfriend getaway standards.

Beach - no stress!Beach - no stress!It’s impossible to deny Aruba’s siren song for long and we’ve decided it’s time to submit – again. Top up your chardonnay and join us for some join us for some Aruba dreaming – while we pack our bags…



Sleep ~ Style mixed with subtlety

Girlfriend getaways are best done on adult-only resorts. If you have to ask why, you need to getaway and find out for yourself. You’ll find Bucuti & Tara Resort, ArubaBucuti & Tara Resort, ArubaRenaissance Aruba in Organjestad as well as   Hyatt Regency and Marriott on Eagle Beach. But we have our sights set on Bucuti & Tara, ranked number one on TripAdvisor (out of 24 hotels). We love that some of the rooms can accommodate 3 adults (perfect for a girlfriend getaway) and that it’s not all-inclusive, which means you can enjoy a different local restauant every night.

Eat ~ Come hungry to Aruba

Screaming Eagle Restaurant, ArubaScreaming Eagle Restaurant, ArubaIn Aruba, the big meal of the day is mid-day. During our last visit, we lived like locals and noshed through lunch menus at the nicer restaurants, which saved some serious money. Adding to our Aruba travel wish list:

  • Madame Janette – Named after a chili pepper, we’ve heard the food here tastes as divine as it looks.
  • Screaming Eagle – A restaurant that offers dinner in bed? No, we’re not kidding. Sign us up.
  • Flying Fishbone – Dining so close to the shore you can dip your toes into the waves gives new meaning to beachside dining. And we hear the champagne mousse is delish.

Play ~ The night away

Aruba takes on a Vegas vibe at night as the air fills with salsa, reggaeton (South American raga), meringue and the island's own Tumba. Glam up those beachy curls, add some bling and we’re ready for sunset cocktails. Look out Aruba, GoGirlfriend is coming for you. Vegas-style nightlife in ArubaVegas-style nightlife in Aruba

  • Kukoo Kunuku – A wandering party that travels throughout Aruba. Sounds perfect!
  • 7 West – We hear the nightlife doesn’t begin here until 9 or 10 pm and can carry on into 3 or 4 am. Once, just once, we’d like to visit.
  • The Sopranos Piano Bar – Live music in a bar named after our beloved Sopranos. Bliss.

Now that we’ve got our wish list completed, we just need to gather up our gal pals and get out of Dodge. We happen excel at that.

  • On Cuba Travel ~ 10 Things You Need to Know Before You Go, Gordon Mitchell said "Over the last few years The $25 departure tax has been included in your airfare. Make sure you convert your cash at the airport so you can buy a cold beer on the bus on your way to the resort. They will take canadian money but not loonies and toonies. "

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
