Boardwalk Small Hotel Aruba

Bakval 20, Palm Beach, n/a Aruba, Aruba

A gorgeous luxury boutique oasis in an ex-coconut plantation, this family run gem is decorated in bright tropical hues with unique accents supplied by local artists. It’s an economical alternative to the high-rise resorts, yet it's just across the road from them on famed Palm Beach. Guests can park themselves at popular MooMba beach club with complimentary lounges courtesy of the hotel, or go explore another beach with free use of snorkeling gear and foldable beach chairs. There are lots of hammocks and lounging nooks by the pool for spontaneous relaxation. Casita rooms are bright and spacious and completely equipped with modern appliances for cooking, including barbecues. Service is first-rate and highly personal. Note: There's a minimum stay of two nights. À la carte breakfast in room is available.
