Aruba launches new travel destination site




Aruba Launches New, Multi-Functional Travel Destination Site, http://www.aruba.com/

The many charms of the Caribbean paradise of Aruba are given exposure through an innovative new move in which, instead of landscape views of a sun-kissed vacation, the island is profiled in the diversity of its people, who reach out to visitors through individual personal profiles. This digitalized, island-wide welcome is part of a state-of-the-art renovation of the island’s official Website, which also includes a booking engine, in transforming http://www.aruba.com/ into a multifunctional travel destination site.
The Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA) and Aruba Hotel and Tourism Association (AHATA), through a public private partnership, have announced the launch of Aruba’s new Website, Aruba.com, complete with an industry-first social networking feature.


Visitors to Aruba.com can share experiences, pictures and videos from their Aruba vacations with other travelers and Aruban locals through personalized profile pages. The Website also features a new booking engine, allowing travelers to research, plan and directly book vacations to Aruba.
“Our visitors have always commented that it is the hospitality of our people that brings them back each year. It is only natural then that we would be the first to utilize this tool in reaching out and enabling even stronger ties between visitors and local residents,” said Myrna Jansen, ATA’s managing director. “It adds a completely new dimension to the entire vacation experience, which can begin long before the guests’ arrival and can last long after, with a return visit to the island instantly transformed into a homecoming.”


Aruba visitors are encouraged to set up online profiles on Aruba.com. This can be done by signing up for a free Aruba.com account with a valid email address and then one can begin customizing a personal profile page. Personal pages can be built by featuring individual vacation experiences, uploading Aruba pictures and videos, and sharing travel tips and island recommendations. Many of Aruba’s hotels, island attractions and restaurants are already featured on the Website and Aruba’s travel partners such as tour operators, travel agents and airlines are invited to set up their profiles, which provide details and images of their products and services.
The new Website also provides an online booking engine for travelers.
