As Aruba is emerging from its self-imposed and devastating economic lockdown, many hotel-properties are itching to restart operations. This is for many a question of survival.
For most properties, for the first time in their existence they shut down and suspended operations completely. Meanwhile, several reports suggest that the future of hotels may be uncertain if operations don’t resume soon.
Divi Resorts Properties
Divi Resorts has nearly ten properties in the Caribbean, mostly located here in Aruba. Divi has a heavy all-inclusive business model.
In Aruba, Divi Resorts is one of the largest hotel chains active in the hospitality market. Divi owns and operates its flagship resort Divi Aruba All Inclusive and golf community Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort to mention a few. Below a complete list:
- Divi Aruba All Inclusive
- Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort
- Divi Dutch Village Resort
- Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusive
- Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach Resort
Another flagship property in their portfolio is Alhambra Casino & Shops. As the name says Divi owns and operates a casino and shopping mall near its resorts.
For Aruba standards, Divi Resorts is a rather large hospitality and real estate development company.
Divi Resorts is a heavyweight in the local leisure market, and they are keen to reopen as quickly as possible. Currently, several of its hotel properties are offering discounts and other incentives for the coming months.
The hospitality company is also adapting the cancellation policies to cope with the current situation. Consequently, expect flexible money-back guarantees as long as you book. This will ensure that the company generates much-needed cash flow.
On the ground, from what I have observed personally, there is work being done at the properties. Recently, I saw maintenance trucks at Divi Aruba All Inclusive and Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach Resort. Some work is also being done at Alhambra Casino and Shops.
