A special evening was staged by Divi Mega Resorts in conjunction with the Aruba Tourism Authority, and the Aruba Hotel and Tourism Association in honor of the delegates of the Annual Tourism Conference Aruba 2011.
The annual gathering brought key marketing players of the North American market to Aruba for three days of intense business sessions, and three nights of tropical enchantment, April 11 – 14, 2011.
Thirty-six tour operators and nineteen sales representatives of Aruba in major cities in North America & Canada, enjoyed a night under the stars, their barefoot toes cooling in the narrow decorative pool on the outdoor deck, as tables were set right in the water. Dinner featured Sea Bass Fillet with Chimichuri sauce and spicy Pica de Gallo relish or a choice of Filet Mignon wrapped with bacon and served with potato gratin, mixed vegetables and peppercorn sauce. The grand dessert delivered a combination of the resort’s most delectable sweets, accompanied by red and white wines.
The evening’s entertainment with Sabor de Cuba presenting a Goddess of the Sea adoration dance and a steaming hot salsa packed incredible sizzle.
The entire experience was designed as a movable feast and started at the Bucuti Beach Resort & Tara Suites, for a cocktail party, then on to the Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa for appetizers, culminating at the Divi Mega Resorts where an opera singer positioned in the heart of the pool, water streaming through her oversize sleeves, welcomed dignitaries with a show of water and light.
The evening was co-hosted by Divi’s Managing Director Alex Nieuwmeyer, and General Managers Gerrit Griffith, Dutch Village and Divi Golf Villas, Marin Bijl, Divi & Tamarijn Beach Resorts and Mark Norren, Divi Phoenix.
