Activities Pelican Adventures is located on the island of Aruba in the Dutch Caribbean, home to one of the world’s largest exclusive catamaran fleets, the perfect getaway for catamaran sailing cruises. Your clients will enjoy custom-built catamarans equipped with sunbathing trampolines as well as shaded areas. They’ll relax and refresh while enjoying food and drinks with the mellow rhythms of the Caribbean. During the tour, the catamaran stops three times to explore the magical underwater world, providing opportunities to try snorkeling or to experience the exhilaration of third-lung diving. Groups of families and friends can join one of the scheduled trips or charter a private catamaran to raise the sails and head for a tropical paradise.

Pelican Adventure tours take guests to experience the mysterious caves, spectacular beaches and historic landmarks of Aruba with a friendly and knowledgeable Aruban guide, who will impart interesting information and folktales, as well as little-known facts regarding the unique island of Aruba.

Spas “Intermezzo” is an Italian word that means “in between halves,” a term originally used in the opera where both spectators and performers had a break to refresh themselves before moving on to the second part of the opera.

Nowadays it is used for any moment which one uses to get freshened up, and as such this is exactly what the INTERMEZZO Day Spa stands for, because INTERMEZZO’s great services and products will refresh skin, mind, muscles and soul.

Conveniently located in three resorts on Palm and Eagle Beach, INTERMEZZO Day Spa offers a comfortable atmospheric retreat. It opened its doors in October 1998, now offering 14 years of experience with skilled professionals to deliver a surprisingly large range of luxurious treatments from around the world, though their specialties are a hybrid of traditional Oriental techniques including Thai massage, reflexology, acupressure points, Swedish body massage and European facials.

At INTERMEZZO Day Spa at The Mill Resort & Suites, the therapist’s hands can gently massage every tired muscle of the body and rejuvenate the skin with a fresh aloe or mineral body wraps. The spa professional treats guests with a great facial, leaving the skin tight and refreshing, while the music playing in the background works to transform daily stress. Also, the use of sauna, tanning salon, and manicure and pedicure services with tropical garden views is on hand. IL BACCI DI SOLE, the signature package at INTERMEZZO at The Mill, is a perfect combination of techniques to maintain the tanned skin of the Caribbean sun.

For those who choose the romantic Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort, INTERMEZZO Day Spa has a perfect spot with two single treatment rooms for total rejuvenation of the body and soul, plus a special package for honeymooners called SONATA DI LUNA, which includes a wonderful 1-hour relaxing massage per couple, a bottle of sparkling wine and a chocolate assortment.
