With 20 miles of coastline, a distinct culture, great year-round weather, and rugged desert-like landscapes, Aruba offers travellers a unique experience that they won’t find elsewhere in the Caribbean. Aruba luxury villas elevate this experience further by offering accommodation that’s as exceptional and authentic as the island itself.
Nicknamed “One Happy Island,” the history of Aruba luxury villas dates back to the 20th century, when the island first became a popular tourist destination. As demand rose for more exclusive and private accommodation, so too did the number of villas.
Today, Aruba luxury villas stand out as the best way to enjoy the island’s beautiful beaches, landscapes, and cultures in style and privacy.
Renting an Aruba luxury villa is easy with Rental Escapes. First, determine your approximate travel dates and party size. From there, your Rental Escapes villa specialist will be happy to present you with the best available villa options for your group. Afterward, your concierge customizes your trip, including transportation, chef service, boat charters, excursions, and more.
Ideally located, impeccably styled, and supremely private, Aruba luxury villas are the best way to experience this beautiful part of the Caribbean, especially if you are travelling with a group.
You can find Aruba luxury villas all across the island, including on Eagle Beach, Aruba’s best strip of coastline; Palm Beach, with its casinos and nightlife; Malmok Beach for seclusion and tranquillity; and more.
They usually feature amenities such as private pools, distinctive furnishing, large outdoor living areas, and more.
All of our Aruba luxury villas also include full concierge service. Whether it’s arranging unforgettable excursions, assisting with transportation and logistics, making restaurant reservations, hiring a private chef, or fulfilling any other special request you may have, your concierge is more than happy to oblige.

A visa is not needed for most travellers to Aruba, including from the US, UK, EU, and Canada. A valid passport, however, is required. Travellers from other countries, including the Dominican Republic, China, and India, need a visa.
The easiest way to get to Aruba is to fly into Queen Beatrix International Airport in the capital of Oranjestad. This airport services many major airlines from across North America and Europe, and an airport transfer can be arranged directly to your villa.
The best way to get around Aruba is by rental car. Aruba benefits from well-maintained roads and clear signage, so it’s relatively easy to navigate, especially compared to other islands. Having a rental car will also give you the freedom to explore the island on your own.
Taxis and private drivers are also readily available and can take you where you like. You can rent a taxi for a short ride, a few hours, or for a whole day.
Aruba also has a bus system that covers many routes across the island. The bus is air-conditioned and comfortable. However, it operates on a fixed schedule and may not depart as frequently as you’d like.
Your Rental Escapes concierge is happy to assist with rental cars, private drivers, and any other transportation needs.
Because of its more southerly location, Aruba sees the least variance in weather throughout the year, making it one of the best year-round destinations in the Caribbean.
The high season runs from December to March and sees the warmest and mildest weather, but also the most visitors.
The shoulder season runs from April to August and October to November. It sees some great weather as well, though with fewer crowds. For many, this is the best time to visit, especially since it’s so much drier at this time of year compared to other Caribbean destinations.
The low season is in September-October. Though Aruba is outside the hurricane belt, this season does see a higher chance of rain compared to other months. Some establishments may close at this time for renovations. This is when you’ll find the best deals on Aruba luxury villas.
The official language of Aruba is Dutch, however the most widely spoken language is Papiamento, which is a Creole language derived from Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch, English, and African languages.
English is also widely spoken, especially in tourist areas, and most Arubans are bilingual.
Additionally, Spanish is also widely spoken thanks to Aruba’s proximity to Latin America and especially Venezuela.
The Aruba florin is the currency of Aruba. USD is, however, still widely accepted and used, especially in tourist areas. Still, it is advisable to have some florins on hand as well.
Visit Arikok National Park: Comprising about 20% of the island, Arikok National Park shows off Aruba’s unique flora and fauna. Hike through desert-like terrain, marvel at ancient cave paintings, and take in the stunning views from the lookout points.
Go snorkeling: Aruba is home to some beautiful coral reefs teeming with marine life and tropical fish, and the crystal-clear water offers great visibility. There are also a number of shipwrecks you can explore, including the Antilla, a WWII-era German Freighter near Malmok Beach.
Visit the casinos: Aruba’s casinos are some of the best in the Caribbean and offer great experiences whether you like to gamble or not. From world-class gaming facilities to entertainment, dining, and nightlife, Aruba has made a name for itself as a premier casino destination thanks to the quantity and quality of its casinos.
Aruban cuisine is a blend of Caribbean, European, and Latin American flavours.
As you might expect, there’s a big emphasis on fresh seafood, including dishes featuring shrimp, lobster, grilled fish, and conch.
Other local dishes include keshi yena, made with melted cheese and spiced meat; pastechi, a savoury turnover; pan bati, a cornbread pancake; and more.
You can also find plenty of Dutch dishes thanks to the island's Dutch heritage, including Dutch pancakes and croquets.
Aruba is also home to many international chefs, and a wide range of international and fusion cuisine is also available.
Your Rental Escapes is happy to help with restaurant reservations, as well as arranging private chef service and villa pre-stocking.
