Aruba courts honeymooners with 'cool' promotion

ORANJESTAD, Aruba -- The Aruba Tourism Authority's sixth year of its "One Cool Honeymoon" promotion offers value-added benefits for newlyweds at 20 resorts.

For example, couples receive a bottle of champagne and a souvenir gift upon check-in.

Couples also qualify for discounts on nightly shows, restaurants, shopping and water sports.

To participate, agents must identify their clients as newlyweds at the time of booking and clients must mention their honeymoon status upon arrival.

At check-in, they receive a One Cool Honeymoon I.D. card, which offers additional perks, including a shopping booklet worth more than $300.

Other newlywed incentives are up to 25% off on-island activities, including sailing, horseback riding and other water sports; a 20% savings on rental cars from Economy Car Rental; a $10 discount on couples massages at Okeanos Spa on Sonesta Island; and a special $35 rate for a golf clinic with lunch at Tierra del Sol.

In addition, newlyweds are offered a 10% discount on the Aruba Gastronomic Association's dine-around program.
