Many properties owned by Divi Resorts in Aruba are in the area of Druif Beach. Divi Phoenix timeshare is the only one at Palm Beach. Divi has been growing considerably over the last few years. Currently Divi is either remodeling or expanding several resorts.
The last few weeks Divi has flattened the terrain in front of Divi All Inclusive Resort where a new structure is rising. I haven’t read any official statement by Divi as to what they are building at that particular place. Analyzing the location and terrain it’s hard to imagine that Divi is adding rooms to their inventory at Divi All Inclusive. The location is surrounded by a heavily used road to several resorts, next to some (former) tennis courts and without a decent view to speak of.
It looks more likely to be some sort of facility building more than anything else. Office space perhaps? Reserve all attractive beach front properties exclusively to house visitors and send all office staff to a new, less attractive area? The (former) tennis courts are beside the structure, so perhaps a clubhouse? Whatever the plans, I’ll find out soon.
In some local reports Divi officials have announced some major plans for the area. Alhambra Casino & Market Place is going receive a transformation. The casino is going to be renewed and the market place is becoming a small version of Paseo Herencia (newly opened shopping area in front of Holiday Inn).
Divi officials continued by declaring that Divi All Inclusive is going to be transformed into luxury beach front villas. Can we assume that it won’t be an all inclusive resort anymore after that reconstruction is completed? So many questions.
Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort is continuing the construction of more timeshare units. I recently learned that they are adding condominiums to the inventory as well. This is definitely an interesting development in light of my recent comments about condominiums.
In the last couple of years Divi has added three high profiles properties to their inventory: The Links, Windows On Aruba and Mulligan’s.
The Links at Divi Aruba is a nine-hole golf course located by Druif Beach. This course is considered to be an ‘easier’ course to play at in comparison to Tierra del Sol golf course. The Links is less windy.
