CEO of Aruba Hotel & Tourism Association (AHATA), Tisa LaSorte, is reporting that more than 80% of all hotels have suspended operations immediately and have closed their doors until further notice.
According to AHATA’s calculations, there is a total of 156 tourists in a few different hotels remaining in Aruba. Most of them have left the island last night or today. In some of the hotels with a few guests remaining, there is still minimum service being provided.
During the public health and economic crisis, all hotels keep a team of security and a minimum maintenance team to keep their properties in good condition; this with the goal to be able to be operational as soon as possible when tourists start traveling back to Aruba.
