Babymooning at it’s finest! Let’s be honest, you don’t have to be on a babymoon to stay at Aruba Ocean Villas, just go to Aruba and book your stay. You won’t regret it! Who knew you could find overwater bungalows in the Caribbean! This place is a dream. It’s secluded, which I love, and so relaxing. I definitely came home feeling refreshed.

Hotel + Rooms at Aruba Ocean Villas
Founded in 2017 by an Aruban-native artist, what once started as the island’s trendiest restaurant was expanded into an enchanting boutique hotel decorated with colorful art. If you prefer staying at places that have personality and soul, you’ll definitely love it here! Bonus: Ocean Villas is pet-friendly, so you don’t have to leave your furbabies behind!
The rooms are extremely dreamy beach front and overwater bungalows. In the mood for a quick dip in the ocean? All you need to do is walk out the door! It is a very private setting with only 7 available villas. But I was told by the owner that they are expanding in 2019! They even have a private two bedroom villa with its very own pool – perfect if you’re traveling with your gals or family.
We choose to visit Aruba Ocean Villas for our Babymoon and it was magical. As soon as we stepped on the property I was blown away. I’m pretty sure my mouth stayed open in awe the entire time. It’s like a secluded jungle oasis right on the water. The vibe is unbeatable. I couldn’t get over how gorgeous everything was. You can really tell an artist is the owner.
We stayed in the Dushi Sue, a secluded private overwater bungalow at the end of the property. Dushi Sue is a premium over the water bungalow inspired by their dear friend Sue Campbell, an award-winning travel writer specializing in Tropical Destinations. So I felt it was perfect for us!
A few things to note, this is one of the largest open floor plan bungalows with 1000 sq ft. It opens from literally every angle so you can really feel that Aruba breeze, and it’s strong! The bungalow isn’t air conditioned BUT the bed is! The bed is covered with mosquito net and there is an AC unit above the bed that makes sleeping a dream. I don’t even understand how that magic works but I’m obsessed. We were beyond comfortable. Not that you’ll be working but the WiFi worked great, there was a Bluetooth speaker and sound system available so we could listen to jams while swinging in the hammock or in the water. Everything was perfect!

Food + Bevs
This boutique hotel is home to The Dutch Man & The Sea, a well-known restaurant throughout the island that offers regional dishes like Kashi Yena, the most emblematic dish in the Dutch Caribbean. If you’re more in the mood for a salad, filet mignon, or lobster – you’ll find them all here, too!
You can choose to have breakfast, lunch, or dinner delivered to your villa or you can head to the beachfront restaurant to eat by the water. Make sure to stop by the bar beforehand for a drink and fresh juice. I stuck to fresh pineapple juice during my stay and I couldn’t get enough.
Want to take the romance up a notch? Then ask for a private over the water dinner while the sun sets. It’s beautiful.
Want something more private? Your dining table in your room also has a stove top so the chef on site can come to your room and cook dinner for you!
The customized touches never end! I’m sure if you can think of it, the team at Aruba Ocean Villas can make it happen. They are so nice and so thoughtful.
Aruba Ocean Villas isn’t short of amenities, so if you’re up for a spa day or a private dinner by the beach, all you have to do is ask the super friendly team.
