NEW YORK, Feb. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- This Valentine's Day, Aruba will sweep 10 special couples off of their feet, 86 stories high, as they exchange "I Dos" atop the iconic Empire State Building.

After all of the couples experience the perfect wedding and open their island-inspired gifts, one of the lucky newlyweds will receive a 5-night / 6-day trip to Aruba's beautiful Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort on Eagle Beach and round-trip airfare provided by Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA).

"It warms our hearts to create a storybook Valentine's Day at the Empire State Building for the second year in a row," said Ronella Tjin Asjoe-Croes, ATA CEO. "New York is full of dreamers, and Aruba is where dreams come true."

We look forward to welcoming the happy couple to our tranquil adults-only, boutique property, currently ranked as No. 8 hotel in the world on TripAdvisor," said Tisa LaSorte, Director of Sales, Marketing and Administration for Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort.  "We were proud to be selected as the 'Top Hotel for Romance in the World' in the 2016 Trip Advisor Traveler's Choice Awards, and offer an ideal honeymoon retreat after an unforgettable wedding."

Celebrated for its award-winning beaches and constant sunshine, Aruba is a favorite destination for romantic retreats. Couples can explore their wild sides by off-roading on an exciting Jeep Safari tour through the rugged Arikok National Park, plunging headfirst into Aruba's natural pool Conchi, SNUBA diving with exotic marine life, or venturing through the ancient Fontein and Guadirikiri Caves. As the sun begins to set, lovers can enjoy a serene catamaran sail or dinner at one of the famous local restaurants floating above the turquoise waters.
