Everyone’s excited about the overwater bungalows coming to Sandals in Jamaica — and with good reason. These thatched-roof suites with glass floors and stairs leading directly into the water are typically only found in far off destinations like Tahiti or the Maldives. The thought of this type of luxury being only hours away is enticing. And while these Caribbean overwater bungalows come with a hefty price tag and limited availability (only five bungalows are available), travelers have something else to be excited about. Overwater bungalows are coming to Aruba, too.
Zoetry Isla Di Oro Aruba is slated to debut in summer 2018 with two big wow factors – a private location on the southwest side of the island, and sought-after overwater suites. While details are still preliminary, here’s what we know about Aruba’s overwater bungalows:
There will be plenty of them — overwater suites won’t be as hard to snag at Zoetry Isla Di Oro Aruba. While we don’t know the exact number, we do know there will be 126 suites in total at the resort, and that “most” of them will be over the Caribbean.
They won’t be near other large resorts — unlike most Aruba resorts that are found along Palm Beach, Eagle Beach, and near the cruise port in Oranjestad, Zoetry Isla Di Oro Aruba will be built on the southwest coast of Aruba. Isla di Oro is a secluded inlet located about 20 minutes south of the airport, near the fishing village of Savaneta. It’s a quiet area with some notable restaurants like Flying Fishbone and Old Man and the Sea.
They’ll be all-inclusive — Zoetry is top-notch when it comes to all-inclusive food and service. At Zoetry Isla Di Oro Aruba, guests will enjoy three restaurants, 24-hour room service, and unlimited top shelf drinks. Activities like yoga, snorkeling, and wine tastings are all included.
Guests can also expect the resort to offer luxury touches like soaking tubs, Bvlgari® bath amenities, mini-bars that are refreshed twice daily, maid service three times per day, and organic options in the restaurants.
