Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort news

Jan 16, 2020

New Year's Eve at the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort

2019 was closed out right at the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort.

A traditional Dande strolled into the lobby at 11:30am, wishing guests and staffers Ay-Nobe, a happy new year, then the lobby emptied into the driveway to watch the executive committee members unbox and unfurl long strings of traffic-stopping firecrackers. When the china-made red shells were all laid out on the sidewalk along the main entrance, General Manager Vasco Baselli was honored to light the fuse and step back, allowing many millions of shots to pop and dance in celebration of old year/new year transition.

Onlookers had their cameras focused on the spectacle, as the smoke said to bring good-luck engulfed the street for a moment, out with the old, in with the new!

We’re just getting started with the amazing effects Aruba has to offer. Dig into your trip details below to unlock a Caribbean experience that will fill you with sunshine and send you home with a happy afterglow that never fades.
