TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - September 18, 2014) - Couples in search of barefoot luxury in the Caribbean have a new option to consider this fall with the opening of the Riu Palace Antillas on the unspoiled island of Aruba. The latest addition to this Caribbean gem's growing portfolio of upscale hotels, the resort stands out as being the island's only all-inclusive property that is also reserved for adults. Exclusively available through Signature Vacations, Riu Palace Antillas opens October 11, 2014.

Situated on Aruba's celebrated Palm Beach, guests can expect to enjoy a distinctive blend of hospitality from the moment they arrive and are welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine as part of the Adult's Only by RIU inclusions. From daily champagne breakfasts and romantic private beach dinners the Riu Palace Antillas excels at offering little touches designed to make couples feel ultimately pampered in an incomparable Caribbean setting.

Those looking to unwind can relax by the pool or on the white sand beach or enjoy an indulgent spa treatment; while more active couples can take advantage of a varied program of watersports including windsurfing, kayaking and snorkelling. For a change of pace, guests can make use of the extensive facilities at the neighbouring Riu Palace Aruba, which offers two additional pools & Jacuzzi, casino and full activity program.

Daytime dining at Riu Palace Antillas is casual, with fresh buffets and cooking stations that offer customized breakfast and lunch menus; while evenings boast more elegant dining options allowing guests to take advantage of three à la carte restaurants including Krystal whose menu is characterized by contemporary fusion cuisine, the more traditional Malmok steakhouse and the excellent Rimini Italian restaurant.

If travellers can be tempted to stray from their sun lounger, Aruba has much to offer. A tantalizing blend of Caribbean colour and Dutch charm, this diminutive Caribbean jewel boasts stunning national parks and miles of tranquil white sand beaches that can be explored on hiking trails and off-road safaris. Its turquoise waters offer some excellent dive and snorkelling sites. At the beach guests can try kite surfing and parasailing, while golfers have a choice of exceptional world-class golf courses including The Links at Divi Aruba. Nearby, the island's capital, Oranjestad is also a must see where travellers can learn more about Aruba's colonial heritage and taste some of the island's legendary Dutch pancakes!

A one-week vacation package from either December 1, 8, or 15, 2014 to the Riu Palace Antillas starts from $1295 + $375 taxes per person. The price applies only to new bookings made by 26 September, 2014. The price is based on double occupancy and includes return flights from Toronto with Sunwing Airlines who have three flights a week to Aruba from Toronto in addition to a weekly service from Montreal.
