Ola ocean and beach lovers! Planning the ultimate holiday in Aruba? Well, you’ll need some super cool places to stay and I’ve found some really unique ones that will make your holiday super special!
So follow me and let’s find the best ocean villas in Aruba! Since the list of beach villas is pretty short I’ve also added some additional ones which, while they aren’t right on the beach, are located super close in order to give you more options. All the villas are also categorized by price so you can easily pick.
Since we’ve only got a handful of ocean villas it’s super important to book in advance if you want one. Aruba is packed with tourists, especially during peak season, and the ocean accommodations will always sell out first.
Let’s dive in!
If you are in a hurry
Don’t worry if you can’t make it to the end of the post. Here I’ve listed the top Aruba ocean villas so you can have a quick look:
- Best ocean villa – Marriott’s Aruba Ocean Club Villas
- Best affordable villa – Villa Bougainvillea Aruba
- Best family villa – Flexication Villa
I’d be lost without a map in a new place! I always need some sort of visual representation. That’s why I thought the map below would come in handy for many of you:

Afterward, you can enjoy a yummy traditional dinner at their restaurant, and some rum at the bar!

Set right by the beach, this amazing villa in Aruba has a lovely authentic design and each room has unique furniture and Caribbean-style artwork! There’s even a super colorful garden filled with pretty flowers which you can admire and smell while relaxing by the outdoor pool.
Perfect for 2 people, the suite has lots of space, free wi-fi, a private bathroom, and air-conditioning. The accommodation also has a kitchen so you can cook for yourself whenever you want and enjoy your meals in the outdoor dining area. Better pack lots of swimsuits because you’ll probably be at the beach trying all sorts of watersports all day long!
