Aruba Marriott Is A Teenager

Marriott is celebrating another year in Aruba with a 2010 $50 million renovation.

Aruba Marriott is celebrating. It’s a teenager. Actually it’s been a teenager for five years. That’s right; Aruba Marriott is celebrating its 15-year existence in August. They are doing this by offering hot deals. I suggest you visit their website for more on that.

Since it opened in 1995 Marriott became one of the high profile resorts in Palm Beach, a trendsetter really. Till this day Aruba Marriott belongs to the principal hotel brands operating in Palm Beach. They managed to reinvent themselves, including a recent renovation of $50 million, adding high end “resort” Tradewinds Club on Marriott’s top floor.

The Marriott brand expanded beyond the hotel business alone. Marriott Vacation Club has been introduced on the island. In fact, Marriott Vacation Club (Marriott’s timeshare unit) is now even bigger than Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino, as the resort is called officially. Additionally, Marriott’s other brands are represented in Aruba as well: Renaissance and Ritz-Carlton (under construction). Kudos.

Yes, Thank you to Marriot Corp. for building during a major recession in the early 1990’s…and again, now, with the Ritz Carlton… during one of the worst recessions in history. It takes financial strength, courage; faith in Aruba’s future to boldly build in our current economic climate. I believe Marriot is setting a wonderful example for all of us as they build in one of the most beautiful places on earth. A good master plan is a good thing. Lee Nysted September 5, 2010.

Indeed Lee, Marriott saved us from a major embarrassment during the early 90s when they acquired the ruins of ex-Beta Hotel and made it into a paradise it is today. Investing into our economy right now is enviable for many other tiny economies common in the Caribbean. Thank you for commenting.
