Reopening of Boardwalk Boutique Hotel
Adding new casitas, a second pool, and amenities in November
Boardwalk Boutique Hotel, a family-run hotel set on the lush and secluded grounds of a historic coconut plantation and just a short stroll from famed Palm Beach, is officially reopening in November 2019. The hotel, now celebrating 30 years, is adding 32 new casitas, a second pool, a fitness & spa facility, and on-trend food and beverage offerings. The property’s existing 14 spacious casitas were recently refreshed and refurbished in anticipation of the reopening.
The design and architecture of the new addition reflect the barefoot luxury guests have come to love at Boardwalk. Each charming new casita, with a seamless indoor-to-outdoor transition, features unique characteristics and a well-thought-out aesthetic. Guests can stay in the highly popular, oversized one- and two-bedroom casitas; various intimate suites; a stand-alone villa with a private plunge pool; a two-story, palapa-style lodge offering stunning sea views; and four coco casitas featuring one-of-a-kind, hand-painted murals depicting Aruba’s local flora and fauna, as well as outdoor showers just off of the indoor bathrooms.
Boardwalk’s signature patios, barbecue grills, and hammocks are featured with every casita, as well as large living spaces and fully equipped, modern kitchens or kitchenettes. The addition of 32 new casitas extends the Boardwalk’s lush coco oasis, adding more secluded outdoor areas for reading and relaxation, and a second pool oasis with overwater hammocks ideal for embracing the Caribbean island lifestyle.
Maintaining an eco-friendly approach and minimizing its carbon footprint with solar panels, double-glassed windows and doors, ultra-efficient energy management systems, and 100% LED lighting are some of the measures that Boardwalk has taken as part of the property update.
While Boardwalk Boutique Hotel transports guests to a hidden paradise that feels worlds away, guests will find dining, shopping, and entertainment just steps away on famed Palm Beach. The hotel’s dedicated beach area, recently expanded and more spacious, is easily accessible by a new complimentary shuttle service. Beach service includes complimentary use of palapas and beach beds, as well as food and beverage service.
Consistently the #2-rated hotel on Aruba on TripAdvisor, the boutique resort embodies a rare, authentic sense of place, effortlessly synergizing a laid-back island lifestyle with exceptional service and dedicated attention to detail offered by the Boardwalk team, led by local owners and operators, Aruban-born twin sisters Kimberly and Stephanie.
