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 swimming pools.

The space

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 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 (42 ft) long lap swimming pool, a stone seating area outside a natural cave, a private cinema with stadium seating, 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.

Guest access

You will be able to enjoy the entire property and all its amenities in complete privacy.

You will have free use of an iPhone 6 Plus with an LTE data plan during your stay.

See below for full list of amenities.

Open-plan MAIN HALL consisting of:
*pool lounge
*sunken living room (73-inch TV, DirecTV with NFL package)
*8-ft billiard table

The Guest Room can sleep up to 4 additional people in modest comfort - two in a king size bed and another two in a full-size bed (one person on the full-size bed and another on the twin-size trundle). The Guest Room is ideal for a family with two children. It has air-conditioning, but not an ensuite bathroom. We recommend sharing the ensuite bathroom with the Beach Suite as it has two entrances (one from the suite and one from the garden); or using the garden bathroom in the Pool House.

All four bedrooms have easy access to the social area of the house, and offer good privacy for its guests (no bedroom shares a common wall with another bedroom).

We have WIFI throughout the entire property, including the garden, thanks to WIFI mesh network.

The property is equipped with SONOS sound system, with speakers in the Main Hall, office, kitchen, cinema, garden dining pavilion, and yoga pavilion.

We have G-OOGLE PLAY MUSIC streaming subscription.(Apologies for the weird spelling but the proper spelling of that company is blocked by the site)

We have DIRECTV satellite service in the Cinema and in the Main Hall with NFL Package - you can watch your favorite team even while on vacation.

Interaction with guests

You can reach us at anytime via phone, chat, or email with the smartphone you will be provided with. We are happy to assist you with any questions you may have or take care of any issues during your stay.

If you decide to rent a car during your stay in Aruba, we can provide you with a pre-programmed GPS that we can drop off at the car rental office, waiting for you at your arrival. The GPS will then guide you straight to the Retreat.

Other things to note

ADDITIONAL FEES:
1) Aruba Tourist Tax (9.5% of the booking amount) + Aruba Environmental Tax ($3.00 per night). You don’t need to pay these at the time of booking, we will send you an Airbnb payment request for the tax amount two weeks before your arrival.

2) Utilities: We take electric and water meter reading when you check in and again on the checkout day, and the usage is charged at $0.29/kWh of electricity and $9.81/m3 of water. (Please note: we include 20kWh/day of electricity and 1m3/day of water in the room rate, which covers the usual operation of the house - pool pumps to keep the pools clean, garden lights at night, drip system to water plants, topping up the pools, etc).

Please keep in mind that as a small island in the Caribbean, the electricity is a lot more expensive in Aruba than in the US. The average utility cost for our guest has been around $250/wk (about $35/day) when all four bedrooms are occupied, but the cost can be higher or lower depending on your usage of the air-conditioning.

UTILITIES DEPOSIT:
Two weeks before your arrival, we will send you an Airbnb payment request for $500, which will be used to pay for utilities used during your stay. The balance will be refunded to you within 48 hours after checkout.

SMALL CHILDREN:
Please note that our pools have no safety fencing and there are large trees and boulders to climb on (and fall down from) in the garden. Please make sure any small children are under supervision at all times.

THE GUEST ROOM
Please note that the Guest Room does not have an ensuite bathroom - we suggest sharing the ensuite bathroom in the Beach Suite as it has two entrances - one from the suite and one from the garden; or using the garden bathroom in the Pool House. The Guest Room has a king size bed, a full size bed, and a twin trundle bed and is ideal for children, teenagers, or a small family, who are not looking for the extra touches of luxury that the three master suites offer.

TROPICAL LIVING:
The social areas of our house are open-air to take advantage of the beautiful Aruban weather. While Aruba has fewer mosquitoes than the rest of the Caribbean or Florida thanks to its arid climate and rare precipitation, they do still exist. There are occasional flies, especially after it rains. You might see small geckos in the garden (they’re the good guys, they eat the mosquitoes). We fumigate and spray against mosquitoes and all sorts of insect weekly, which takes care of most of them, and we recommend using a bug spray, especially in the mornings and evenings. All the bedrooms can all be fully enclosed, but this house is built for people who enjoy the outdoors.

PARKING:
Two compact cars or one large car may park inside the property, additional parking is available right outside the property by the pedestrian entrance.

CHECKOUT & EXTRA CLEANING
*checkout cleaning is $250 (included in your Airbnb payment)
*extra cleaning or linen service is available by request for $75
*there is a washing machine & dryer at the property, but if you would like additional laundry service, please ask Stuart for price and details.

We had an amazing stay at Bali’s! From the moment we arrived to the check out we were amazed with the place! From the pool when you first enter the house to the white sand at the back of the house we were blown away! There was so much to do! We enjoyed every minute we spent there! We were not disappointed.

The Bali Retreat was an incredible experience for my party of ten people. the pictures are accurate, it really is that beautiful! We loved the open air concept and the entire grounds were beautiful and so spacious. The location was also great, close driving distance to many beaches and restaurants which gave us the opportunity to explore the entire island. Stuart and Maria were great hosts, answering any questions we had promptly. We definitely plan to return some day. Thank you for all you did to make our stay so wonderful!
