Boutique Overwater Bungalow Resort - Aruba Ocean Resort

Aruba Ocean Resort is the only resort in Aruba with overwater villas that stand out for their attention to detail. There are many references to the Polynesian origins of the overwater bungalows in the details, mixed with Caribbean elements that together create a high-quality design.
