Lending a Helping Hand

At  Holiday Inn Resort Aruba we believe in kindness, fairness and in taking care of each other and our community.
We dedicated some of our efforts into helping different parts of our community:

• We helped paint and restore a retirement home.
• We participated in a beach cleaning initiative.
• We donated backpacks in a “Back to School” project.
• We helped restore and repair a family home (roof, bathroom, new windows, new doors and paint.)
All of these are little contributions that fill our hearts with compassion and make us feel grateful to be in a position to help. This season we would like to encourage you to lend a helping hand to anyone in need in your community.

A Half Century of Service

At Holiday Inn Resort Aruba we know that customer experience is everything when it comes to hospitality; we have been giving our guests countless reasons to visit and return for 50 years. We are proud and ever so grateful for the opportunity to be your hosts in our One Happy Island.

The smiles from our team, the quarter mile of beachfront location, refreshing accommodations, vast variety of gastronomic experiences, and our fun outdoor activities, are just some of the reasons why Holiday Inn Resort Aruba is your home away from home in Aruba.
Thank you so much for reading us, and safe travels! 
We will be waiting for you to celebrate our 50th anniversary with you!
