Chris and Annisa – Honeymoon to New York & Aruba (Dec 17)

We had a magnificent time on our honeymoon, the entire trip was perfect and we had a holiday that we will never forget and cherish for a very long time. 

The trip began with experiencing the new United lounge at Heathrow airport followed by a very comfortable flight to Newark. The Doubletree Hilton in Newark was more than adequate for our one night stay, check in was a breeze. A simple shuttle service to and from the airport got us to our flight for Aruba on time. On arrival at Aruba airport we were greeted by a friendly representative who got us to our car in minutes and a short journey later we were checking in at the Renaissance where very friendly staff took us through all of the available hotel amenities, they even made sure that we had a room with a view after letting them know we were on honeymoon.

The hotel was amazing offering a great choice of restaurants to eat in, a beautiful swimming pool, very friendly and helpful staff. The room was excellent with a very comfy bed and stunning views over the sea. The hotel provided direct access to the private island which was perfect as the nearest public beach to the hotel was some distance away. The island itself was absolutely incredible and offered a romantic dinner on beach for a few dollars extra.

The hotel in New York was perfect and very well situated centrally for all the action on Manhattan island, although a little limited on breakfast options. Staff were very helpful and accommodating even with a late check out. 

Overall the trip was planned perfectly affording us all the time we needed in Aruba with a perfect location in New York.
