Q1 - 2018

January 2018

Dear Members,

At the beginning of another year, we extend heartiest wishes to you and your loved ones for a blessed, positive and healthy New Year.

In Aruba, we were spared the devastating effects of the last season’s hurricanes which severely damaged our sister islands and we wish them a speedy recovery.

RESORT HAPPENINGS:

In capital projects and general Resort upgrades:

  • We completed the lobby renovations and express sincere thanks to our members for their patience during this period.

  • The Tiki Bar and Restaurant has been upgraded as well making it more appealing for our patrons.

  • Asi Es Mi Peru and La Terrazza Italiana have expanded their hours and, in addition to dinner, they are now both open for lunch.

  • The hallways of Phase 1 have been tiled for a fresher look and easier maintenance.

  • In the suites, we started replacing the appliances and the entire Resort will be done by mid-year; fire extinguishers upgraded from 2.5lbs to 5 lbs. and emergency / evacuation signs installed.

  • Smoke detectors have been upgraded around the entire property.

  • We are awaiting formal Government approval for the additional land at the north-western section of our property (on the La Cabana side) after which we intend to beautify the area and create additional parking.

  • To better handle room linens, we are in the process of building a small laundromat for exclusive use by the Housekeeping personnel.

  • The washers, dryers and the laundry detergent dispensers in the laundromats in both Phase 1 and Phase 2 now use tokens only (no quarters). Tokens are available at the Front Desk.

  • We continue the phased change of the thatch to the palapas on the pool deck.

We said au revoir to Ed Loor who relocated to Canada in November and welcomed Randolph Berry as his replacement in the Sales Department. We wish them both well in their new career changes.

The exchange agreement with Interval International (I.I.) has been extended and part of the new agreement offers a complimentary 2-year membership to ALL members of Paradise Beach Villas who did not already have an I.I. membership. (This offer expires on September 1st 2019). With this new benefit in mind, why lose your week when you have already paid the maintenance fee and your week is in a very desirable destination? At least 60 days before your week starts, call Interval International at 1 800 621 1884 or (305) 666 1884 or visit them on line at www.intervalworld.com to deposit for your future enjoyment.

ISLAND HAPPENINGS:

In the general elections held in September, Aruba experienced a change of Government and the new Ministers are in the process of settling into their various portfolios.

The old unsightly Bushiri Hotel, which has been vacant for a number of years has been finally demolished. We will keep you posted as to the new designation of that area.

Construction of the Watty Vos Boulevard is in full swing and, when finally operational, this will significantly alleviate traffic on the main highways on the island.

REMINDERS:

  • Please advise the resort if you will NOT be using your week. Remember you can also deposit it with Interval International for your future use as mentioned above.

  • Please advise the Resort of any change to your email address so you can be contacted easily when necessary.

  • We encourage you to visit our Paradise Beach Villas Facebook page for frequent updates related to the happenings at the Resort.

  • If you want to bank, upgrade or switch weeks with the Resort, please contact our Reservations Department directly via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Once again, Happy New Year and we look forward to greeting you on your next visit to Paradise!
