About

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. 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.

You will be able to enjoy the entire property and all its amenities in complete privacy.You will have free use of a smartphone with a 4G data plan during your stay.See below for full list of amenities.

Its as looks in the pictures. Like having your own compound. We enjoyed it so much that we didn't really leave it much to explore the island. I would recommend renting a car as the location is not close to beaches/restaurants/shopping.

This home is unbelievable. The space is so well laid out and provide a true sanctuary for relaxation and very nice family time. It’s a short drive to eagle beach and all of the restaurants but you don’t need to leave the compound for a great vacation.

Our stay @Bali Retreat will be memorable. The amenities were great, the property was clean and all the communication from the host/property manager was punctual and thorough. The property was private and the longer we stayed the safer we felt. We loved the open floor plan and of course loved the two private pools, stargazing bed, cinema room and powerful air conditioners (in bedrooms & cinema). We traveled with a family of 8 and more than enough room to escape when needed. We recommend the Bali Retreat and LOVED Aruba especially off the beaten paths!!

We really enjoyed our stay at the house. There were so many activities to do around the house that we didnt even get to take advantage of, so, we will definitely return. We absolutely loved the authentic bali feel! During our stay we took full advantage of the kitchen and it was so helpful that there were so many appliances and dishes that made it that much easier for our family style meals. The house being equipped with speakers throughout was also a feature we absolutely loved! Our group was big and spread out throughout the house but we were still all able to enjoy the vibes from any part of the house. The only challenges we had were all of the mosquitos (they are everywhere)and figuring out light switches (there are many of them). Be sure to have them show you how to turn in everything! This home is so convenitly located within 10 minuets to the beaches, stores, excursions and conveniently about 5 minuets from the nearest Wendy’s :)

Amazing hosts and Amazing House!

I don’t even know where to begin to start writing about the amazing people that host the Bali retreat in Aruba. We had the most amazing and memorable time celebrating my daughter Eleni’s sweet 16 at this gorgeous villa. They spared no expense to every little detail in this retreat. Maria and Stuart are 2 of the nicest and warmest people I have ever come across in my travel experiences. The house was spotless, the amenities are too many to list. From the 2 pools, hot tub, to the cinema, to the hidden cave, to the full size volley ball court, the private bedrooms with stunning bathrooms, the pool table, gorgeous outdoor dining in the sand. I can go on and on. The pictures do not do this place any justice. It Is even more beautiful in person. The lighting at night just lit up the place to be so serene, calming, and comfortable any time of the night. I was exploring everyday and found something new to appreciate. My family and daughters friends can’t stop talking about how amazing the home was. When we arrived there were balloons with the numbers 16 to celebrate my daughter. And then later on that day, Stuart arrived with a birthday cake for Eleni. Who does that? These amazing people at Bali Retreat Aruba do, that’s who. No one else has ever done anything like that to make me, their guest feel welcome and special. We are already looking to book another stay here!!!! Thank you thank you thank you again and again for such an amazing time at your home!!!

OMG! Thank you for ALL the kind words. It was great to be your host and we hope to have you stay with us again sometime soon!!

Our party of 6 (My husband, 21 year old son/ and 19 year old daughter & 2 friends) absolutely loved our 7 days at The Bali Retreat! We quickly settled into a daily routine consisting of waking up to coffee and lite breakfast, workout in the awesome yoga pavilion and outdoor gym, cool off swim in the indoor or outdoor pool, pack up coolers and towels/chairs (provided by our wonderful hosts) and head to the fabulous MooMba Beach Bar & Restaurant for the afternoon. (13 minute ride recommended by our hosts with free public parking) Upon returning to our home, we swam again, fired up the Sonos music system, commenced with cocktail hour (s) and had a fabulous time! When we got tired, we retired to the air conditioned cinema room and reclined in large, leather reclining theatre style chairs to watch Netflix, Apple or Direct TV. After that, we all retreated to one of the 4 air conditioned bedroom suites and then began the whole process over the next day. We mixed up some of the days with a UTV excursion, Jet Skiing and a Catamaran Cruise. One night we had a chef come in and cook a fabulous meal that we ate in the outdoor dining area. After that we hung out at the Tiki Bar. When we had questions or needed help we used the House I Phone to contact Stuart and Maria and we immediately received a response and assistance. (EX: The theatre had 4 clickers and despite written instructions I could not figure it out, Stuart came right over and provided training). My husband and I had been in Aruba 15 years ago and we stayed at a Beach resort and never really saw the island. This trip was different and we were extremely happy with the choice we made. It is important to note that Aruba is a dessert island and thus is not what you may think of when you travel to a Caribbean tropical island. We rented a van to fit all 6 of us and it worked out getting around the island. We downloaded an APP that allowed you to pre-load directions to your phone so that you could navigate without an internet connection. The Resort/house was a great spot for us to gather together and spend time during our down time and meals. Had we stayed at a hotel we would have needed 3 separate rooms and I am certain our schedule and our kids schedule would not have overlapped as much as it did while staying all together at the Bali. It allowed us to really spend time together before the kids all went back to college. The Bali compound is awesome and unique and difficult to describe. They have clearly put a lot of time / effort and thought into adding so many cool and unique touches to the property. The pictures do not lie. We highly recommend it!

The Bali Retreat Aruba is truly a unique experience. The open air environment, swimming pools, jacuzzi, outdoor bed, hammocks, sand volleyball court, chess, cinema, yoga studio, and gym make it so easy to lose yourself in activity or relaxation - all in the privacy of your own space.

Pictures don't do Justice!!!

We just stayed at Bali Retreat Aruba for a 12 person bachelorette party and absolutely loved this house - the pictures absolutely do not do the property justice. The house is more like a private resort with two pools, a meditation cave, yoga pavilion, and four huge bathrooms. We were able to relax and spend time together without being cramped and on top of each other. The amenities were clean and modern and Stuart and Maria responded quickly the couple of times I had questions. This is the perfect destination for a large group of friends or multiple families and I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the island.

We rented this home for a party of six and everything about it was outstanding. It was as beautiful in person as in the pictures, and it was like having our own private resort for a week. In addition to the accommodations, Stuart and Maria were fantastic hosts, providing us with information about the house and check-in in advance of our arrival, as well as arranging some time to walk us through the property after we arrived. Definitely a one-of-a-kind home and highly recommend to anyone considering a trip to Aruba.

AMAZING RESORT!!

Amazing resort, I think calling it just a house doesnt explain how large it is. The pictures are very accurate. It is an open air concept so you will see many lizards around. The 2 pools are great and well maintained, they were cleaned every other day. I have no complaints about staying at the Bali Retreat and would stay there again. It is an amazing value for a large group. Stuart was very helpful getting us 2 additional mini fridges the day after we arrived which we really appreciated and the house phone was very helpful as we only had one other phone with international data so the extra phone allowed us to split up and still contact the other group.

Manager's Response

WAW! Thank you for the kind words. We hope to welcome you back sometime soon! Glad you had an amazing stay here.

Paradise in Paradise.... Maria and Stuart’s place is like staying at your own private resort. The ambiance inside the entire property is amazing, and nearly indescribable. From the indoor pool to the outdoor shower, each amenity adds the perfect touch to the Bali Retreat Aruba. I’m definitely looking forward to returning in the near future. Maria and Stuart are very gracious and attentive hosts. They do a awesome job at ensuring that your stay at Bali Retreat is an enjoyable and most memorable experience. The Bali Retreat Aruba is in a very favorable location. As all the guest in my party found it convenient to get to several various locations within a short ride away.

This place was so beautiful , the pictures do not do it justice . I definitely recommend it to anyone that wants to have a different experience. If you don’t mind being away from the main area, and want to be secluded , this place is for you. I am definitely planning to go back.

Dream stay !

An absolute dream stay. Hands down the most interesting and amazing property I've ever stayed at. There is so much on property, that there is really no need to leave. 10/10 will be returning.

Amazing house! It was such a relaxing place to stay. A much different experience than the busy, crowded resort hotels. The house was as beautiful as pictured and the description of the property was accurate. We loved hanging out at night when the house was all lit up and used the Sonos the entire time we were there. We have 3 younger kids that used both pools much of the time we were at the house. Although crowded, there was enough room in the 4th bedroom for 3 young kids and two teenagers. We didn't do as much cooking as we anticipated we would. The grocery stores were expensive and the meat was not very appealing. They do pest control spraying on the property, however it is Aruba and we did have several bug bites. I wish I had used the bug spray that I brought with me. Stuart was great and very prompt in responding to a couple of minor things that came up during our stay. The housekeeping service could be improved upon. They provided only 5 beach towels for 10 people and didn't show up for two days to deliver more so we had to purchase towels in town. There were a few other things that created an inconvenience/expense due to the poor housekeeping service however, I didn't reflect this in my rating as everything else about the house was great. The property is centrally located and a short drive to downtown NORD (5-10 min) where the high rise hotels and many of the restaurants are located. Downtown Oranjestad was about 20-25 min. from us and had several places to eat as well. Baby beach was great for snorkeling and around 1/2 hour- 40 minute drive from the house. You should plan to have transportation for the entire week while at the house as nothing is within walking distance, although several of the excursion companies will pick you up. We would rent this house without hesitation if we returned to the island as it is a huge part of why we had such an amazing trip!

Beautiful!!

Beautiful. I was very enjoy my staying! And the kids had lots of fun in the pools. It’s very good for up to 3 family of friends to vacation together. It was fun, relax, and nice experience.

The online pics are great but don’t do justice to the full immersive tranquility of the retreat. Want to relax? This is your spot. Off the beaten path. Opens up more opportunities to get past the tourist destinations and check exclusive spots. Still a 15 minute ride to the beaches. They have a phone with the house with many many destinations already preprogrammed into it for your scrolling pleasure. Great stuff.

Wow! 10 of us stayed here for 5 days (all ladies) for our annual girl's trip. We did not want to go home! I am happy to say that all of the reviews I read on this forum about this home were ON POINT! It is just as it is photographed and described. We used Kini Kini for transportation and Barbulet Concierge to have a yoga instructor, massage therapists and private chef come to the house. By far, the best trip we have all had to date. Thank you so much for hosting us!!

Great place to stay :)

We rented Bali Retreat for my 30th birthday. All 10 of us fit comfortably! (Do note we were mostly women and all shared beds.) The environment was very relaxing. The outdoor/indoor showers were a highlight for the ladies. There is also ample tools to cook, which we did for most meals. We had a taxi take us to Superfoods for liquor, groceries, etc. don’t forget to bring your own bags from the home. Stuart helped pretty quick when we noticed we were out of gas for the stove. We found a great taxi driver and used (Hidden by Airbnb) to request him multiple times. It’s helpful to find someone with a bigger van if you are moving more than 5 people. I saved his number in the house phone as Taxi Taxi if you need a recommendation. Some days (like Sundays) it can be hard to get someone quick so plan ahead :)

Fantastic Place!!

Bali Retreat Aruba is a fantastic place to stay. We stayed 10 days and used Barbulet Concierge (Freya) to schedule some activities, like Jolly Pirates (I booked with kids in mind, but actually I had the best time!!), De Palm Island, and a ranger-guided hike in the National Park. The house is a short walk to 2 small grocery stores (bring reusable grocery bags for convenience...they give you cardboard boxes for you groceries, which is awkward to walk back with), a few small cute restaurants(two local places and a very clean Wendy’s), and a bank. The property itself is amazing. The main living room and kitchen are in an open-air pavilion with the bedrooms (with a/c!) fully enclosed. With this in mind make sure you bring bug spray or a friend more “delicious” than you. The mosquitos aren’t bad, and are mainly out at dawn and dusk, and if you have the ceiling fans on it helps keep them at bay even then. The kitchen is well equipped with loads of pots and pans, a very nice Nespresso coffee maker, and a good supply of cooking oil, salt, pepper, sugar, etc. you may want to get a few bags of ice for the freezer...there is a very good blender too! We did not rent a car, and got around just fine using taxis and Kini Kini van service. We had a party of 8 so the van was best, otherwise two taxis were required. Maria’s taxi company recommendation was very reliable and fast. Kini Kini should be scheduled in advance, and was not that much more expensive than two cabs. Overall, Bali Retreat, Maria, Stuart, And Freya made this trip one of the best we have had!

Family of 6 adults. When driving in we were wondering what the property will be like as the GPS nears it but once there and inside was exactly as in the beautiful photos. Like a mini-resort. Pools, lighted sand volleyball/badmitten court, workout and yoga and meditation areas, fire pit, pool table, and awesome theater room. Stuart was fantastic, always cheerful, promptly handled the few minor things that came up, provided restaurant recommendations, and even brought a nice cake for my daughter's birthday. Highly recommend the property.
One caution - they can assist in arranging vehicle rental if desired and after booking the property provided rate sheet for vehicle rental options. We did not have a good experience with Value Rental, the company they use and refer customers to. Vehicles were in very poor condition - 4 door Jeep Wrangler was very old, rusted, back tires and spare almost bald and rotted, roof leaked and worried that it wouldn't make it the week or even be safe especially on some of the rugged trails, but at that time had no other choice with all others completely booked during Presidents week. Note that this is also about 20 minutes from the airport. Three days later brought back with the above concerns and complaints - traded for "much newer" model which had just been returned - only 56,000 miles - still much below usual rental quality but at least made it the week. Strongly suggest avoiding Value rental and make arrangements on your own through a more reputable company.

We rented this house for a 10 day family reunion. The house was perfect. It allowed us to do our own thing, and to meet up for family events. The pools, cinema room, and all the different places to hang out were delightful.

Stuart and the staff were amazing. The cleaning crew came in twice during our stay and they left the house spotless each time. Stuart promptly took care of issues as they arose (these were minor maintenance issues).

The house is perfect for families with older children or for groups of friends.

I cannot recommend highly enough! We will be back.
