Additional Hotel Rooms And Aggressive Marketing To Boost Tourism In 2013

December 19th 2012, Aruba.

Ritz Carlton Aruba to open in 2013 will boost stay-over arrivals on the island

ORANJESTAD-Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA) is aiming at a 6 percent growth
rate in stay-over arrivals for next year. The completion of the Ritz Carlton Aruba
Resort Spa & Casino, and the reopening of Holliday's Inn Curacao tower during
2013 will add a total of 550 rooms to the island's hotel room inventory. In
addition, marketing funding will increase substantially to a record of
US$35 million for next year. Both factors will contribute in attracting
substantially more visitors to the island.

ATA's aim was to attract 3 percent more visitors to the island in 2012. Aruba is
very likely to end 2012 with a growth of 3.4 percent in stay-over arrivals
compared to 2011. Mainly South America continues to boost Aruba's overall
stay-over arrivals during 2012, compensating at times for the lost of stay-over
arrivals from the United States and Europe.
