** Ocean Views Set the Scene for Varied Delectable Cuisine from Szechuan to Italian
at Nine Dining Options and Seven Bars **

ORANJESTAD, ARUBA –  As past guests know and food aficionados will love to discover, every meal is a culinary experience at the Divi & Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusives.  Offering more tempting food and a wider variety of dishes than typical all inclusives, dining at these two properties is a memorable affair highlighted by stunning ocean views.  Plus, guests of the Divi & Tamarijn Aruba can eat at any of the 9 dining options, as guests staying at one property have full use of all services, facilities and amenities of both.

Because the Divi & Tamarijn Aruba are both located right on the beach, ocean views and an atmosphere of breezy barefoot charm surround diners at all times.  All the properties’ oceanfront dining venues range in style from casual to easy elegance, and all provide open-air seating options for those who prefer to enjoy their meal al fresco.  One of these is the Divi Aruba’s signature restaurant, the Red Parrot, which features fine cuisine and attentive service as well as an incredible view of the beach.  Among the menu selections at this dinner-only establishment is the slowly roasted prime rib of beef served with haricot verts and gratin potatoes. Other popular delicacies are the sautéed Escargot appetizer and the perfect finish to a beachside meal, the Apple Pie Caribbean made with local cane syrup from the islands.

Meanwhile, the Tamarijn Aruba’s signature Paparazzi Restaurant, Bar and Lounge (view photo) practically transports guests to the vibrant heart of Italy.  A warmly-colored ceramic tile floor and simple, chic furnishings allows the food to take the spotlight.  After feasting on classic Italian fare from rich pastas to fresh fish or tender meat accompanied by a choice vintage to pair with the meal, a rich tiramisu or Frutte Fresche is an excellent way to complete the occasion.  In true spirit of the country, the conversation and shared laughter often flows as freely as the wine!

For an entirely different type of cuisine, Ginger, the Asian-fusion restaurant located at the Tamarijn Aruba, is characterized by its eclectic, exotic flavors of the East from Spicy Green Curry Chicken with shrimp to assorted sushi and the exquisite Old Fashioned Ginger with Whipped Cream dessert.  Many food lovers also enjoy preparing their own tasty meal, so they can have everything cooked exactly the way they like it.  For them, the Palm Grill, also located at the Tamarijn Aruba, lets diners have fun stir-frying their own shrimp, swordfish, chicken or beef mixed with fresh vegetables and rice on specialty grill tables. 

The Divi & Tamarijn Aruba’s chefs are all highly trained and experienced, which is evident by the quality of every meal.  Recently added to the staff, Pastry Chef Luimar Olive brings his personal specializations to the menus and has been lauded as “serving the island’s most exquisite desserts.”* Further, the waitstaff is attentive, friendly and eager to attend to a patron’s every need.  Add in the beachfront setting and the combination creates an unexpectedly good experience that’s truly all inclusive dining at its best!

Located just thirty minutes from the airport and five minutes from Aruba’s capital city, Oranjestad, the Divi & Tamarijn Aruba resorts are set on beautiful Druif Beach, with a shopping arcade and the Alhambra Casino nearby.  Guests staying at either the AAA 3-Diamond Divi Aruba or the adjacent, oceanfront Tamarijn Aruba have use of all facilities and services of both properties.  All stays at the Divi & Tamarijn Aruba include all meals and snacks at a choice of nine dining options, unlimited beverages at seven bars, the use of three freshwater pools, a wide range of activities including non-motorized water sports and nightly entertainment and offer a variety of packages.  In addition, all guests may use the well-equipped Divi Winds Sports Center, which features a 30-foot outdoor rock climbing wall on the beach.  All guestrooms now have flat screen TVs as well as brand new mattresses and bedding with super-soft pillow tops, duvets and extra pillows.
