Donna Feldman Discovers Aruba One Happy Island Rejuvenates Supermodel


Donna Feldman

first met supermodel/actress Donna Feldman when I interviewed her as our cover girl for Luxury Report many years back. We have since become friends, and she often asks me for advice about the best spots to go for tropical travels and places to totally rejuvenate from her jet-setting whirlwind lifestyle shooting fashion photos all over the world.  This year I had just the spot.      I knew she’d never been to Aruba, and I also knew they had just created the ideal oasis of overwater bungalows on the quiet side of the island in Savaneta that she would adore for its privacy and beauty. So, I sent her to Aruba Ocean Villas, and I was right. She was elated with her stay – the food, the staff and the surroundings. And she especially enjoyed the in-room spa treatments in her villa, and private sunset dinners on their pier. But, I also wanted her to see more of Aruba, so I created an itinerary that would give her a small taste of the different regions. She thoroughly enjoyed a day at private


DePalm Island and tried the cool Seatrek® while there – an underwater helmet walk experience among throngs of colorful tropical fish. I also sent her to the natural pool in the wild interior of the island via an exciting off-roading jeep safari with DePalm Tours and made sure she toured the incredible new art walk in San Nicolas. She enjoyed dining at Elements restaurant on gorgeous Eagle Beach, and experienced famous Palm Beach too by dining at Holiday Inn’s Seabreeze and the new Da Vinci Ristorante there. I also made sure she saw colorful downtown Oranjestad and had the best mojitos in town at Cuba’s Cookin’ on the marina. Her impressions? Donna says, “I definitely fell in love with Aruba and I can’t wait to return. And yes, it was just what I needed to recharge. The island vibe is ideal for that. And the people? Amazing! Just go!” If you want to see some highlights of Donna’s Aruba trip, visit her Instagram at: For more about Donna, see:
