Any time there’s hotel construction going on in the Caribbean, we at HotelChatter adopt the island phrase “soon come” and just wait to see what develops. See, these things take time, so we never fully know when, or IF a project is going to be completed. So, when we were in Aruba last week checking out new developments, we were shocked to see a new Ritz-Carlton being built. Like, actual workers working. We had to wonder if we had had too much sun or rum. Or both.

So, we dug around for info and found out that the 320-room, oceanfront Palm Beach resort is scheduled to open in mid 2014 (originally it was late 2012) which makes us even more delighted to see actual physical activity going on. That means, maybe this one will open, unlike the Ritz' Turks and Caicos property that remains a mystery.

This resort will undoubtedly be Aruba’s first true luxury hotel, as the Marriott, Hyatt, and Westin are only considered four-star properties. We weren’t able to get a hardhat tour, but the Ritz’s corporate release states the resort will have several restaurants, a spa, two swimming pools and a 24-hour casino. They’ll also have a private Ritz-Carlton Club Level which will offer several light fare options and dedicated daily concierge service.

We’re just crossing our fingers it won't become a time share. It's not like Aruba doesn't have enough of those.
