Following the difficult decision to close Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino, the resort along with our executives and staff have decided to donate all fruits and vegetable to our local senior living communities.

On Thursday, March 26th, over 200 cases of produce including carrots, potatoes, greens, apples, and melons will be distributed to a representative from Cas Cuido y Alegria pa nos Grandi nan, Stichting Thuiszorg Aruba and Ambiente Feliz. The fruits and vegetables once intended for resort guests will be used to create hundreds of meals for Aruba’s most vulnerable citizens.

“It feels good to be able to help in some small way,� said Paul Gielen, General Manager at Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino. “While we can’t serve our guests, we have this massive supply of food and it just makes sense.�

We along with rest of the world are learning how to navigate these uncharted waters, but with our roots in hospitality and service, we feel a sense of purpose and ongoing connection (even with social distancing) to our community. Our hope is that these resources provide the necessary nutrition, relief and maybe even a little comfort to during these difficult times.

While the world pauses due to COVID-19, Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort is promising to bring a little piece of paradise – virtually – to its would-be guests and followers until they can travel again.

The popular Eagle Beach resort kicked off this new engaging social media initiative, #BringingBucutiToYou, on March 18, 2020, to the instant delight of its followers. Owner/CEO Ewald Biemans launched the series with this video. He shares that staff are using this unanticipated down time to continue refreshing the resort for the return of guests.

Overnight, the video garnered 3.6k views on Facebook. Followers will also find it on Instagram and Twitter. Guest comments poured in from worldwide with requests for videos of favorite staff serving signature cocktails, warm thoughts and prayers, excitement over future reservations and gratitude for the simple joy of getting to see their favorite vacation spot – a welcomed break during these trying times.

Upcoming features include treasured Bucuti associates bringing messages from guests’ favorite Bucuti spots including treasured sun loungers on Eagle Beach, this video of servers greeting followers from oceanfront deck of Elements restaurant and a refreshing dip in the pool overlooking swaying palms. 

Property upgrades during downtime

Joining the growing number of countries and localities worldwide, Bucuti & Tara’s home island of Aruba is also closing its borders to non-residents due to the pandemic, COVID-19. In tourism-dependent Aruba, as some hotels will temporarily shutter, Bucuti & Tara Owner/CEO Ewald Biemans is currently keeping his resort open and the employees working on deep cleaning, ongoing training and projects that will continue enhancing the guest experience.

The dedicated hotelier has a deep love of the hospitality business itself and has a long history of reinvesting profits into property and experience improvements. His reward is happy, healthy guests and staff. This approach includes not offering deeply discounted rates, rather it focuses on delivering value through a quality experience found nowhere else on Aruba. 

Bucuti’s unique culture of deeply caring for guests and staff has resulted in Bucuti’s highly active, loyal customer base. Fair value, not overbuilding and steadfastly providing the healthiest vacation experience and working environment also continues to be recognized by major media outlets, such as the March 18, 2020, announcement by Travel + Leisure magazine naming Bucuti & Tara a 2020 Global Vision Award winner. Biemans’ intense focus on high standards has also led to the property to becoming the Caribbean’s first carbon-neutral hotel as well as TripAdvisor’s No. 1 Hotel for Romance in the Caribbean for four straight years.

“At Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort, our Bucuti associates are our heart and soul and caring for our guests is paramount whether they are here on property or, in these unique times due to the pandemic, far away,� shares Ewald Biemans. “When travel resumes, Bucuti & Tara will immediately be ready to welcome our treasured guests as soon as they touch down. Until then, it’s our pleasure to come to them with #BringingBucutiToYou.�

Gilligan’s Seafood Shack is Now Open for Seaside Dinner at Hilton Aruba Resort
Source:  Aruba News by Visitaruba
donderdag 02 januari 2020 16:48

The resort’s open-air terrace restaurant at the edge of the Palm Beach boardwalk has just opened for dinner. The popular seaside eatery caters to guests during the day, and recently the decision to extend the restaurant’s opening hours was made to also accommodate fun casual dinners in the evening hours – just walk in, no reservations required.

The new dinner menu offers a selection of interesting salads and a variety of seafood appetizers followed by fresh fish, beef and chicken entrees, vegetarian offerings, tasty sides and desserts.

You may start your evening’s meal with a Lemon Caesar or a Garden Salad, then go on to enjoy Nori Ahi Tuna, Ceviche de Pescado, or Fisherman’s Basket for two, all nicely plated and plentiful. Classics, such as Beef Empanadas or Grilled Shrimp conclude the menu’s list of crowd-pleasing appetizers.

True to the restaurant’s name, the menu highlights a number of fresh seafood preparations, Shrimp Creole, Grouper & Crab, Shrimp Tacos and Mahi Mahi Fillet. Landlubbers may pick Jerk Prosciutto Chicken or Dijon Skirt Steak, both innovative chef’s signature dishes.

Guests in search of vegetarian options will delight in the Green Garden Penne Pasta and the Vegetable Tart, served with a small garden salad.

Gilligan’s Seafood Shack features two fantastic offers: A Tuesday Shrimp Taco Special for $19 per person, from 5:30 to 8pm and a Wednesday All You Can Eat, Taste of Aruba, with skewers of Mahi Mahi, Shrimp, Red Snapper, Grouper, Beef, Chicken and Chorizo with funchi fries, at $35 per person.

The eatery is named after a legendary sitcom from the 60’s, Gilligan’s Island, a few years after the resort was originally constructed. The sitcom told the story of seven tourists accidentally stranded on an island, and their failed escapes from it. With a carefree and casual ambiance matching the delicious food, guests entertain no thoughts of escaping from Gilligan’s Seafood Shack. On the contrary, they come back to enjoy desserts such as Chocolate Surprise, or the famed Homemade Cheesecake.

The resort’s Executive Chef and the mastermind behind the new dinner menu, Matt Boland, is Aruba’s esteemed celebrity chef. He is often the Tourism Authority’s popular choice to wow attendees at travel shows with food demonstrations and tastings. Famous for his energy, creativity and passion for fresh food concepts, Boland set out to make Gilligan’s Seafood Shack a family favorite, a casual dining destination in a premier location.
Matching the stellar menu, an equally diverse beverage selection help guests unwind with refreshing cocktails, sparkling, blush, red and white wines and local beers while savoring delightful island flavors.
