The Resort

An Intimate Island Oasis on Aruba's Eagle Beach

Set on tranquil Eagle Beach, recently named one of the “Top Ten Beaches In The World” by TripAdvisor, Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa in Aruba occupies perhaps the most enviable oceanfront hotel location in Aruba. This boutique retreat of just 72 hotel rooms is an oasis of island splendor and personalized service. Palm trees, tropical gardens and thatched roof palapas dot the landscape, easing guests into day after breezy day of yoga and Pilates classes, spa services, fine and casual dining, sunbathing on the beach and lounging by the pool, beachcombing and blissful relaxation.

More than anything, what sets Manchebo apart is its staff. Measured by both tenure and temperament, this stellar team of 150 exudes a relaxed yet reliable vibe. Many have worked together for decades and their easy rhythm is evident throughout. It’s not unusual to see returning guests in a happy embrace with their favorite bartender, or to find the resort’s longtime manager chatting with guests before a yoga class, or to discover that the chef has tweaked the day’s menu to accommodate the arrival of a local fisherman’s morning catch, or to watch four full-time gardeners tend to whatever is blooming in the resort’s two greenhouses.

Like a gentle undercurrent, the island’s Dutch heritage is subtle yet ever-present, a fact that would delight the resort’s founder, Izaak “Ike” Cohen, a hotelier, entrepreneur and exuberant entertainer from the Netherlands who envisioned Aruba as a prime tourist destination long before the larger world discovered the island’s charms. From the Dutch Gouda cheese on the breakfast buffet to premium Simon Lévelt teas imported from The Netherlands, Aruba’s history and heritage shine though in ways large and small.
