Mr. Nieuwmeyer further stated, "I would like to thank Mr. Otmar Oduber, Minister of Tourism, Transport, Primary Sector and Culture; Mrs. Ronella Tjin Asjoe-Croes, Director of Aruba Tourism Authority; and Mr. Jim Hepple, President of Aruba Hotel and Tourism Association (AHATA) for participating in the ribbon cutting. Also, Divi & Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusives would like to thank all of the developers and staff for their tremendous effort and dedication to making these new renovations a success."

Divi Aruba's first pool view category building offers 60 luxury rooms and two swimming pools. Each guestroom has a patio or balcony that overlooks the pools, built-in fridge, floating desk with pop-up electrical outlets and 5 USB ports, and bathrooms with a walk-in shower and a granite counter with double sinks. The two step-down pools each feature floating lounge chairs and cabanas. The entire structure was constructed as a "green" building in accordance with sustainable practices. It is well insulated and equipped with solar heaters, sun reflecting sliding doors and LED lighting to keep the rooms cool and electricity consumption low.

Located at the Divi Aruba, the Pure Lime restaurant marks the 10th dining option for the Divi & Tamarijn Aruba sister properties and is the first full service Mexican restaurant in Aruba. It features an open kitchen concept, with the menu showcasing a variety of authentic Mexican dishes and signature drinks. Ms. Lyssette Van Der Biezen serves as the Executive Chef.

Renovations to the front entrance and lobby included a more contemporary porte cochere with a reflective fountain pool in the front entrance. The two pillars in the front entrance have been accented with blue led light strips.

Located just thirty minutes from the airport and five minutes from Aruba's capital city, Oranjestad, the Divi & Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusive resorts are set on beautiful Druif Beach, with a shopping arcade and the Alhambra Casino nearby.
