What inspired the new design?
- The new design reflects the resort’s unique combination of urban sophistication and tropical simplicity, incorporating indigenous elements for a result that is distinctly Aruban. We wanted to create a boutique feel that was also very accessible and welcoming, without being intimidating.

- The design is also in line with Renaissance’s recent rebranding which encourages guests to “Get Out and Discover” their destination. We’re helping them take the first step toward this by bringing locally-driven elements into the guestrooms.

What are the highlights of the new rooms?
- Design cues reference a custom yacht.

- Gone are the standard dresser, desk and chair, and in their place are cozy spaces designed with couples in mind – ideal for lounging, dining or just kicking back and taking in the view.

- An L-shaped sofa at the room’s entrance will wrap the wall to the headboard of the bed and nightstands. The rooms will be well suited for relaxing at any time of the day, with the addition of sheer layered drapes and thoughtful positioning of the bed closer to the window, maximizing daylight and creating nighttime drama with indirect lighting.

- Closet interiors will be lined with vintage island postcards.

- Sleek, modern bathrooms will incorporate simple, yet elegant materials like polished nickel, porcelain tiles, white quartz counter tops, backlit mirrors and rain-style spa showers.

- The features that have made the Renaissance room product synonymous with comfort will remain, such Renaissance’s revive bedding with luxurious linens, down comforters, sheeted duvet covers, thicker mattresses with plush toppers and fluffier pillows. Rooms will also incorporate LCD televisions and wireless internet.

What color is the new color palate?
- Rich woods, silvery creams, off whites and splashes of aqua that balance the natural colors of Aruba.
