À propos de ce logement
Bali Retreat Aruba is a uniquely designed vacation home that blurs the line between the outdoors and the indoors, opening the house up to majestic rock formations, lush garden, natural cave, sand beach garden, and two different swimming pools.
Bali Retreat is like no other vacation home in Aruba. Inspired by the tropical homes of South East Asia, you will feel you have traveled to the other side of the world and ended in the exotic jungles of Indonesia, Malaysia, or Thailand.
Large electric skylights, outdoor bathrooms, and glass folding doors that make entire walls disappear within seconds, give you the freedom to bring the garden into the home and enjoy the beautiful Aruban climate, or enclose your luxurious suite when you desire privacy and the modern comfort of air conditioning.
But it is not just the unique design of the home and the natural beauty of the garden that will make your vacation here one to remember. You will likely get the impression that you are in your own private resort rather than in just another house rental as you explore the property and find places like a garden pool surrounded by giant rock boulders and palm trees, a white sand barefoot dining area under a thatched roof, ancient Buddha statues protruding from an imposing rock wall with powerful waterfalls cascading into the crystal waters of a 13 meter long lap swimming pool, a stone seating area outside a natural cave, a private cinema with stadium seating, a 6 person jacuzzi, a hammock cove nestled among giant boulders and palm trees, an outdoor gym hiding under a large palapa, several outdoor lounges, three bars, a yoga pavilion overlooking the lush greenery of the garden, and even a white sand beach with real Caribbean sand and a swimming pool on each end.
All of that in a secluded location that offers complete and unrestricted privacy from the outside world rarely found on the island. As soon as the massive iron gate of the retreat closes behind you, you will find yourself in your own tropical paradise, where no prying eyes can ever intrude upon your solitude. You will likely be amazed by the calm and peaceful serenity of the place when relaxing in a hammock under the star dotted Caribbean sky, or when taking a shower in the moonlight, surrounded by bamboo palms, hearing nothing but an occasional song of the cicadas or chirps of crickets. Yet, whenever you decide to venture out, you will be just a few minutes drive from the shops and restaurants of Palm Beach and white sands and blue waters of Eagle Beach.

Please note that Bali Retreat is a non-smoking property and smoking indoor is strictly forbidden and will result in the forfeiture of your entire security deposit.

Once you land on the island, you will be greeted by our local property manager, Stuart (who's working with Rent Star Aruba), who has made Aruba his home for nearly two decades as he loves everything about this island; the people, the white sand beaches, the turquoise blue ocean and the warm climate year round.
"Hospitality has been my profession for many years and I love it when I've been part of making a hard earned vacation be well worth it. I have a passion for Beach tennis and enjoy spending time with my family in my spare time" - Stuart.
