Best food & drink
1. The Old Man and The Sea
Established in 2008 in the historic old capital of Aruba, Savaneta, the Hemmingway-inspired restaurant takes romantic dining to a new level as the only restaurant in Aruba that offers a private overwater cabana dining experience.
The cuisine is a mixture of local dishes with an international flair. Aruba Ocean Villas prides itself on only using the highest quality ingredients, having fresh catches of the day, and top-quality meats imported from the best distributors in the world.
2. Beachside Dining
Dip your toes in the sand and watch the sunset from your seat.
3. Toteki Beach Bar
Enjoy one of the signature cocktails, like the “Old Man Special” before your dinner under the stars.
Where you stay on vacation is more than just a hotel room. It’s an experience. That’s why every detail in the rooms at Aruba Ocean Villas – from the crisp white bed linens on its signature canopy beds to the fresh ocean breeze and the sweeping panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea – is designed to make you feel both at home and yet completely transported.
Each villa is so beautifully designed, and unique in character, your hardest decision if you decide to stay at this dazzling luxury resort will be which villa you go for – because you’ll want to try all of them.
Aruba has so much to offer and the Aruba Ocean Villas concierge service can help you plan for it all.
Some of the highlights include the soft white sands of Mangel Halto Beach, just 5 minutes by car from the hotel, the famous crystal blue waters of Baby Beach, also just 15 minutes by car from the hotel, the century-old caves in Aruba’s National Park, Arikok, San Nicolas, the cultural capital of Aruba, and sailing excursions where you can enjoy a beautiful sunset dinner on a classy sailboat.
Of course, it’s not necessary to leave Aruba Ocean Villas at all. If you prefer to totally relax and unwind on site, only rising to slowly meander towards your next exquisite meal, to dip your toes in the cerulean blue sea, enjoy some live entertainment or perhaps indulge in a variety of massage treatments in seclusion and serenity surrounded by nature and the calm breeze, Aruba Ocean Villas has you covered.
There is also a special BBQ lunch every Sunday and, if you do fancy taking on some more active activities, complimentary kayaks, snorkeling gear, a paddleboard, and a paddleboat are all on offer so you can explore the mesmerising Caribbean Sea.

Sitting on the powdery white sand of this particular stretch of Alleyne’s Bay beach looking out at the warm turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea is like living a castaway fantasy, but with the comfort and luxury of one of the most beautiful hotels in Barbados seamlessly nestled into the sand right behind you so as not to break the illusion.
