The Mill Aruba: An Ideal Oasis for the Adventurer on a Budget

The splendor of still blue waters despite the scorching heat is such a soothing landscape that snatches your stress away even for just a respite.  But once the mental abacus starts the math, this landscape remains a dream.  But then again, there’s The Mill Aruba to finally make that fervent dream nothing short of reality.

The Mill Resort & Suites Aruba

Taking its cue from the Dutch, a mill does welcome guests in The Mill Resort and Suites.  Their location is probably one reason for its friendlier room rates that can start at $89 a night.  Apparently, it only commands a maximum of $125 for a Junior Suite.  Although not situated in the premium coastline of high-rises, this low-rise haven still fits the summer bill.




Amenities in The Mill Aruba are just as generic as any resort hotel.  Two swimming pools (what resort hotel won’t have one, anyway?), the poolside bar, spa and sauna, fitness facilities and a bar; the list could go on.  There’s internet access to answer the concerns of the business people; however, fees may apply.

Some recreational activities offered by the resort are windsurfing, parasailing, glass-bottom boat trips and water skiing.  Other offbeat amusement sources are golf, horseback riding and mountain biking.  Offbeat, as these are actually not part of the “normal” island vibe.  Again, fees may apply for use of equipment and assistance.

One exciting point to note though is the promo that The Mill Aruba offers.  Travel dates falling between June 1, 2011 and September 30, 2011 that is booked from April 10, 2011 to September 30, 2011 entitles you of the following:

  • Family gift upon check-in (varies according to property)
  • One complimentary special children’s drink upon arrival (per child)
  • Children ages 12 and below can stay for free, provided they stay in the same room as the companions.  They are also entitled to receive complimentary breakfasts (choices shall be picked from the children’s menu at the designated resort restaurant)
  • Complimentary children’s activities (varies according to property)


This offer is valid for all room types.  Restrictions may apply though.  Complete details will be available upon check-in.  Or, for clear-cut explanations, you may call the resort or log on to their website.


Now, whoever thought that an exotic island escapade requires thousands of dollars is absolutely wrong.  The Mill Aruba perfectly defies this concept but delivers very well in providing you a relaxing experience worth pondering over.
