7 Sweet Suites for Heavenly Honeymoons on Aruba

December 12th, 2018

Aruba’s hotels and resorts always go that extra mile to welcome honeymooners with all kinds of extras like complimentary champagne… but sometimes it’s the actual accommodations that provide the biggest treat of all for newlyweds. We’ve chosen a few splurge-worthy stays, secret hideaways, and awesome adult-only abodes to span many styles and budgets. Here are just a few options guaranteed to get your life together as newlyweds off to stellar start in paradise…

Each of these South Pacific style villas tucked away in sleepy little Savaneta are unique, and all outstanding in chic, arty décor and luxurious comfort. But for a really special stay for you and your soulmate, we suggest one of the Tahitian style overwater bungalows there- either Isla Alistaire for indoor and outdoor bedrooms, its own dipping pool, jacuzzi and hammock right in the sea- or the Dushi Sue Villa next door which is also a spacious heavenly haven with a big soaking tub, huge wraparound deck, oversized hammock and more. And both villas have futuristic eco-friendly air-conditioning located right within the bed, so you can still hear the sea, yet stay cool while you sleep. Incredible. This small resort also features a private chef with private pier or tables-in-the-sand dining, and its own private little beach.  Breakfast on the beach is also included. It’s a world away from the tourist fray and an ideal hideaway for honeymooners and romantics. They also have a lovely spa perch for couples’ massage and a fun and friendly tiki bar.

It’s like having your own luxury private apartment overlooking a surreal aqua sea. This top-level expanse of spaces incudes a master bedroom, a wraparound private balcony, large living and dining areas, and plenty of room to entertain if you ever want to let any outsiders into your lover’s cocoon.  And there is also lots of liquid luxury for two via an over-sized soaking tub, a jacuzzi, an indoor rain shower and even an outdoor balcony shower! Access to the upscale Club Lounge is also a given when you stay in these suites, and there you can enjoy complimentary top shelf drinks and excellent fare if you ever tire of ordering room service. They also feature and adult-only pool area. Visit: http://www.ritzcarlton.com/en/hotels/caribbean/aruba/rooms-suites/ritz-carlton-suite


Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort -Tara Penthouse Suites

A legendary eco-friendly and exclusive retreat, Bucuti &Tara Beach Resort offers the added bonus of being one of the few strictly adult-only escapes on Aruba. Honeymooners will want to choose a penthouse suite in the Tara wing for their romantic hideaway there. All the rooms in the Tara tower were fully revitalized last year, and the new décor is fresh and inviting. There are four penthouse suites in that wing, and all offer gorgeous views of pristine Eagle Beach, and each has a private terrace with a daybed. Also, when you opt for a Tara penthouse suite you receive daily access to one of their four private palapa cabanas on the beach. This resort is also the most eco-consciously operated hotel- not only on the island- but quite possibly in the entire Caribbean. They also have a dedicated “romance concierge” to see to all your needs. Visit: https://www.bucuti.com/penthouse


Divi Aruba Phoenix- Ocean View Suites

If you’re seeking a little budget relief on your honeymoon without comprising on accommodations, you can cook some of your own meals instead of constantly dining out if you honeymoon at the Divi Aruba Phoenix Resort. Their gorgeous tropical themed rooms have full modern kitchens and everything you need to make a meal- including community BBQs in the common area. Set upon their fabulous water circuit and beautiful beach lapped by gentle waves due to the manmade breakwaters, you can have the best of all possible worlds there. And for extra romance, the one-bedroom suites also offer cool jacuzzi tubs with neon lights.  They also offer meal plans, so you can do a combination of both in room and outside dining if you like. They are also the only hotel in the island with a sea view spa, aptly named “Pure Indulgence”. They also have complimentary in-room laundry facilities.

Ocean Z -Boutique Luxury Hotel

Looking for an upscale luxury boutique near the Palm Beach strip but far enough away for peace and quiet? Then look no further than Ocean Z Boutique Hotel Aruba in the lovely little residential area of Malmok.  This intimate hotel has a mere 13 suites, and most are located looking inward to their infinity pool, but there are two magical master suites facing the ocean that are ideal for honeymooners- and they have a semi-private infinity pool and hydrotherapy jets right off the balcony. Newlyweds and all guests will also enjoy the service of a private chef who will make your breakfast to order (included) and there is dining inside and out for additional meals should you want to dine there, but it’s also a short drive to all the famous restaurants and nightlife along the Palm Beach strip. And though the resort faces a scenic sea cliff- not a swimmable beach- they will whisk you away to a lovely beach nearby- Boca Catalina or Arashi- and provide you with everything you’ll need for a perfect snuggle in the sand and sea day. (Included in the rate.) Visit: https://oceanzaruba.com/special-occasions-at-ocean-z/

Seeking an intimate little retreat that’s easy on the budget but big on romance? Boardwalk Small Hotel Aruba is the spot, and you need not be on honeymoon to book one of their special romance packages either. Ensconced in an enchanted tropical garden with its own pool and secret lounge hideaways, two of the 14 spacious ‘casitas’ in this chic and charming oasis are specifically designated as honeymoon suites with private hammocks- for-two, king beds and secluded patios and gardens with charcoal grills. Though not right on Palm Beach, a short stroll across the road will find you on their own dedicated strip of white sand with lounges and chair-side service where you can enjoy the same beautiful beachfront as the big brand hotels on either side.

What our brides are saying

My dad’s favorite ‘paradise’ was always Aruba. Choosing Aruba as the locale for our nuptials was a special way to honor his memory and share this day with him.
