Spa del Sol, a Caribbean-Balinese Spa Oasis in Aruba


Located right on one of the most pristine beaches in Aruba is the home of Spa del Sol, the on-site luxury spa of the Manchebo Resort & Spa, where I stayed during my recent trip to Aruba. I started my trip at Aruba’s Marriott property, which has a lot more bells and whistles and is a great choice for millennials, couple getaways who want to have fun (they have a casino and tons of things to do on the premises as well as happy hours, great cocktails and romantic outdoor dining right on the beach, a must do if you go to Aruba) or families (lots of kid activities to do, on the beach and in the water).

If you’re a yogi or wellness is your thing however, Manchebo Resort & Spa is a quieter and more intimate alternative with only 72 rooms. And, they’re known for their luxury on-site spa and daily yoga classes and workshops.

Both of their yoga pavilions and the spa overlook the ocean. The Spa del Sol is a bit of a Caribbean-Balinese spa oasis with teakwood furnishings, cool trade winds and soft music and it has a relaxing tone with individual thatched cabanas overlooking Eagle Beach. If you request it, you can get that beach view during a treatment.

They have a wonderful selection of individualized treatments, including relaxing, hot stone and shiatsu massage therapy. Spa del Sol also offers a variety of body scrubs & wraps, manicures and pedicures, as well as a steam room and an outdoor whirlpool.

You can get a Balinese scrub, an after Sol Aloe cooling wrap, a Clay Body Wrap, an Exfoliation scrub, eye treatments, revitalizing or cleansing facials, a Luminous C and sea facial (sounds divine right?), an After del Sol Mask, or a Rosasea Facial, to name a few.

They also have lovely Aromatherapy Massages, Shiatsu or something a little more original like a Volcano Mud Body Wrap or a Dead Sea Mineral Mud Wrap, both of which are very detoxifying. There’s a number of special spa packages for couples or special occasions and all spa facilities are included with any treatment. You can also get premium wine with your treatment as well. Why not?

Lushly landscaped, the spa is open-air but oh so tranquil, you’ll want to stay a lot longer than your treatment just to relax and unwind. Oh those palm trees…

Below is the beach view from my hotel room.

They also serve freshly made veggie and fruit juices upon request – you can customize your own if you’d like or order one off the menu. So delicious!
