Wyndham Aruba introduces inclusive option

PALM BEACH, Aruba -- The 481-room Wyndham Aruba Beach Resort & Casino introduced an inclusive option. Agents earn 10% pay on all sales.

In addition, inclusive clients who stay in deluxe category rooms for four nights during June and September will get the fifth night free.

The decision to introduce an inclusive option, according to Rob Smith, general manager, came out of feedback from both leisure and corporate travelers.

"For many, the inclusive option is just easier, as it details costs and benefits up front. And for individuals and corporations in the current climate, it may not only be welcome, but necessary to stay on budget," he said.

Inclusive rates include all meals at the property's restaurant, including one gourmet dinner at Pago Pago Seafood & Grill, and unlimited beverages.

Also provided are admission to all theme nights, unlimited use of the health club and tennis courts, service charges and taxes and gratuities.

Dinner shows and dance reviews are not included.

Rates start from $365 per night, double, from April 6 to Sept. 30 and from Nov. 16 to Dec. 20, and $385 from Oct. 1 to Nov. 15.

The hotel requires a five-night minimum stay for islandview and standard oceanview units; four nights for superior oceanview; and two nights for deluxe oceanview.

Guests occupying junior or one-bedroom suites have no minium stay. Children ages 5 to 17 pay $65 per night.
