What they asked us
Boardwalk Boutique Hotel came to us with an exciting vision: they wanted to create a unique and inviting lunch and dining experience for their guests, right under the swaying palm trees of their lush coconut plantation. This marked the birth of the "under-palapa" restaurant concept – The Coco Café - a place where guests could relish in the flavors of Aruba and savour good quality food in a laid-back atmosphere.
Understanding the essence of Boardwalk's audience, we crafted a food concept that perfectly complemented their vacation experience. Drawing inspiration from the island's culinary heritage, as well as the rich flavors of Belgian cuisine and Mediterranean influences, we carefully curated a menu that catered to diverse tastes, with a touch of tropical goodness in every dish.
To give The Coco Café a clear identity, we crafted a compelling story and messaging that encapsulated the heart and soul of the "under-palapa" experience. From the warm and loving service to the mouthwatering dishes infused with local ingredients, every detail was designed to create lasting memories for guests.
The Coco Café is the enchanting on-property restaurant of Boardwalk Boutique Hotel, nestled within the serene embrace of a former coconut plantation on the breathtaking island of Aruba. An oasis of culinary delights, it beckons guests with the promise of a truly unforgettable dining experience.
Step under the swaying palm trees, and you'll find yourself transported to a world where flavors dance on your palate, inspired by the vibrant culinary traditions of Aruba. But that's not all – The Coco Café is a haven where the essence of Belgian and Mediterranean influences intertwine seamlessly, thoughtfully curated by the hotel's owners during their travels.
