Boardwalk Hotel Stimulates Guests to Support Local Community

An update from Boardwalk Boutique Hotel.

In their guest communications, both in person at the Front Desk, as well as via the recently launched Stay Web App, Boardwalk Boutique Hotel Aruba highlights various initiatives to its guests as a way to give back to the local community and support Aruba’s environment.

Boardwalk Boutique Hotel

The five main initiatives mentioned to hotel guests to participate in or actively contribute to, are:

I. Food bank; upon check-out from their casita with private kitchen, guests can leave unopened food items in a donation box that will be taken to Aruba’s Food Bank for local distribution

II. Adopt a Donkey; guests are made aware of the Donkey Sanctuary and how they can help support the efforts of this sanctuary by adopting a donkey, or do volunteer work on site

III. Bula protects; guests are informed that Bula, the local surfshop in Oranjestad, makes an effort to help keep the beaches and North Shore clean, and how guests can contribute by purchasing merchandise with all proceeds going to environmental protection efforts.

IV. Plastic Beach Party; guests are notified that Plastic Beach Party offers a shop downtown where products made out of recycled plastic waste from our beaches can be purchased

V. Arikok National Park; it is highly recommended to hotel guests to pay a visit to Arikok National Park, not only to indulge in Aruba’s natural beauty and diverse landscapes but also to contribute to nature conservation by paying the Arikok admission fee.
