Enhancing Team Spirit among Team Members, The Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino Hosts a Variety of Fun Activities

Palm Beach – 24/3/2016.—True to its Executive Statement, the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino is guided by the company’s vision to fill the earth with the light and warmth of hospitality, in business and when it comes to its most precious resource, its people.

“The light and warmth of hospitality come easily on the island of Aruba,” says General Manager Olivier Maumaire. “Here eternal sunshine complements the genuinely kind spirit of our Team Members, as they go about their daily chores and as they nurture their team spirit by means of interactive, fun social events,” he adds.

The hotel’s Blue Energy Team recently instituted a weekly Walk / Run, regular Zumba classes, and organized a unique Women’s Day activity, a memorable Flag & Anthem celebration, and an informative 60 minute session with the General Manager. The resort observed Earth Hour in conjunction with its guests and sent a fit and speedy team to Aruba’s International Half Marathon.

The fun Walk/Run promotes a healthier lifestyle among Team Members who grab their sneakers and start walking, after work, every Thursday at 5pm.

The energetic fun filled Zumba classes take place every Tuesday at 5pm on the Miramar South grass lawn, with instructor Marilu Erasmus, a Team Member at the Hilton Aruba.

A unique Women’s Day activity featured a self defense class, taught by Master Sensei Celsius Bispham, covering basic self-defense techniques. “Our women are Strong, Beautiful, and Compassionate, and now they can also defend themselves successfully, and continue to inspire those around them,” the Sensei stated at the end of the class.

For Dia di Himno & Bandera, Aruba’s Flag & Anthem Day the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino catered a beautiful lunch event for its Team Members which included traditional dishes such as Keshi Yena, Chicken topped with Gouda Cheese, Stoba di Komkomber, Cucumber Stew, Funchi, Corn mush/polenta, Sopi Pampuna, Pumpkin Soup, Cocada, Coconut Sweets, and Drigidek, spiced cake.

Additionally, Team Members appreciated the decorated, festive environment and the traditional Caha di Orgel, organ grinder music. The culinary team, the restaurants staff and the energetic interns outdid themselves on the occasion. Team Members also received a Hilton customized Aruba t-shirt, further enhancing the celebratory ambiance.

Every Month, a different department is invited to chat 60 Minutes with the GM, over wonderful lunch in one of the resort’s restaurants. This month was the Reservations Department’s turn. They enjoyed a great meal at the Sunset Grille, custom made for them by the culinary team.

Four athletic Team Members of the resort participated in Aruba’s International half marathon, a road race of 21k from San Nicolas to Oranjestad. They won 4th place, of 30 other companies, thanks to the awesome teamwork of Juan, Loss & Prevention, Sofia and Luis Manuel, Pool and Beach, and Frances, F&B.

For Earth Hour 2016, the Mira Solo Bar encouraged guests to turn their lights off and enjoy a cocktail under the stars, raising awareness of environmental issues. The bar was decorated with candle illuminated center pieces while guests enjoyed the beautiful dark skies of Aruba.
