YOUR HOME ON ARUBA
Located in central Aruba, Turibana Plaza is a unique suites & apartments complex and it is an ideal base for those who want to explore this beautiful Caribbean island. Home to lush beaches, shopping, restaurants, bars and of course the famous flamingos. Complete with a large pool, sun loungers, ample of living space and much more, this is a great place to stay!
Situated just a short walk away from the locals shops & restaurants, you will find yourself in an energetic local town atmosphere, oozing sunshine and unique decor making it extremely comfortable, cosy and stress free. The apartments are brilliant, offering cosy furnishings and amenities, designed with your comfort in mind.
If you find yourself in Aruba, Caribbean, then I would highly recommend booking a few nights stay at Turibana Plaza.
- Super friendly and welcoming staff
- Comfortable, cosy, clean apartments & suites
- A fantastic large pool with sun loungers
- Chill out area with sofas and chairs
- Nicely secluded away from the hustle and bustle
During our stay at Turibana Plaza we opted to stay in the Suite 1 which was perfect for our needs and provided a very comfortable night’s sleep. With fantastic city views of the surrounding town, aesthetically pleasing decor, spacious and comfortable furniture we almost didn’t want to leave to explore the island.
Furnished with a large window, it was a brilliant way to wake up in the morning and look out over the town. It comes with a large king size bed that was honestly so comfortable we really did struggle to get up in the mornings. We had our own modern ensuite bathroom, table & chairs, air-conditioning/heater, plenty of power points, coat hooks, mirror and a large flat screen TV.
What you get
The room comes equipped with free toiletries, strong Wi-Fi, fluffy pillows, clean towels, soft linens, flatscreen TV, hairdryer, fully functioning kitchen, safety deposit box, bathrobes and plenty of space for you to relax in.
Jump in the outdoor pool
Need to cool off from the hot Aruban heat? Then look no further than the outdoor pool, situated at the back of the property with secure gates and excellent seclusion for a refreshing dip. Surrounded by plenty of sun loungers, this is a great place to chill out, relax and enjoy some sunshine.
Hike Arikok National Park
Inside Arikok you’ll see centuries-old cacti and rock-face paintings. Cooling off means heading to its breezy coastal inlets, like Boca Prins for far-flung ocean views.
Opt for a hike of the trails to see bright quartz peeking through the desert soil, flora and succulents like aloe flourishing; and then head toward the wind turbines in the distance (which create 20 percent of the island’s electricity) to experience the nearby sea cliffs and swimming spots.
Explore San Nicolas
Most Aruba visitors stay in the resort-saturated Palm Beach area on the north coast, but the opposite side of the island has some of the best local beaches and cultural things to do in Aruba.
The San Nicolas area is home to colourful street murals, local art galleries and artisan shops, and Baby Beach—which earned its name for its calm, clear bay. You’ll get equal parts nature and culture in San Nicolas.
Snorkel and See Wildlife
The clear, calm waters of Aruba make snorkeling a can’t-miss activity, and there are plenty of animals to see outside the water as well. Head to Arashi Beach or Boca Catalina for pristine waters full of tropical fish. Or, pick one of the many hotels on the island that have their own snorkeling and wildlife area.
Visit the flamingos!
The Renaissance Aruba Resort in Oranjestad (Aruba’s central capital) has its own private island complete with snorkelling, plus iguanas and vibrant flamingos that lounge on the beach with you.
Visitors can feed the flamingos the provided treats, although food isn’t necessary for the pink residents to walk right up to you on the soft sands. Colorful iguanas and blue lizards lounge on the beach next door as well, and a regular boat shuttle takes you back and forth from the hotel.
Find Your Favourite Beach
Aruba has over a dozen idyllic public beaches worth exploring, from Eagle Beach’s (pictured) white sand and Palm Beach’s cabanas to Boca Prins’ sea spray and Wariruri’s surf-worthy waves.
Locals and visitors alike take to Druif Beach for relaxation closer to downtown, while the calm waters of Baby Beach or water sports at Palm Beach might also be worth the trip for some water lovers.

From the airport is relatively easy and quite quick to reach Turibana Plaza. The easiest option is to take a local taxi from out front which will cost $30 USD.

This plaza is a great place to stay due to its location, and the perfect place to stay while in Aruba. I am so glad that we chose to stay here for a few nights – it’s the chillest place in the town with everything you could need.
The suite was fantastic, we had a super comfortable night sleep and really enjoyed watching the sun rise from our bed and large window. The location was my favourite feature as it was super central and easy to get around the island from there. The staff are also so friendly; they can honestly not do enough for you to make your stay that little bit more comfortable than what it already is.
You will want to spend longer
The island is super chill, but in a great way. It is surrounded by beautiful beaches, bountiful history and interesting wildlife which are absolutely breath-taking and you will find yourself soaking them up the whole time you’re there. When you throw in the close proximity to the shops, bars, restaurants and all of the other attractions you are onto a winner!
If you are in Noord, Aruba and you want to have a unique suite plaza experience, I would highly recommend Turibana Plaza.
