Wind Creek Hospitality (WCH), an authority of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, has bought the Aruba Renaissance Resort & Casino and the Curacao Renaissance Resort & Casino.
The upscale resorts will continue to operate under the Renaissance brand and all team members are expected to remain in place. Renaissance is a registered trademark of Marriott.
The resorts are situated in downtown Oranjestad, the capital city of Aruba, and adjacent to the port and downtown Willemstad, the capital city of Curacao. Tribal Chair Stephanie Bryan of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, owners of Wind Creek Hospitality, said “We are thrilled to add these incredible properties to our Wind Creek portfolio. We look forward to being part of the communities in Aruba and in Curacao. I know our guests will love being able to travel to two of the best Caribbean destinations as part of our Wind Creek Rewards program.”
Located minutes from Queen Beatrix Airport, the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino resort sits in the middle of downtown Orangestad, Aruba’s capital city, and overlooks the marina and cruise ship terminal. The property is well positioned to provide guests an opportunity to escape from their daily routines and experience something truly extraordinary. The resort offers two hotels with 431 rooms; numerous choices for dining; two shopping malls that include luxury retailers Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Cartier, Burberry, Rolex, and Bulgari; two casinos; and the private Okeanos Spa. The adjacent 40-acre private island offers exquisite beaches and is an ideal location for tropical weddings while business conferences and trade shows are at home in 22,000 square feet of event space.
The Renaissance Curacao Resort and Casino is set amidst the historic Dutch Caribbean city of Willemstad. It stretches from the Otrobanda waterfront all the way to the main cruise ship terminal. Built within and around the fascinating Rif Fort – a 19th century landmark designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site – Renaissance Curaçao offers a variety of boutiques, cafés, bars and restaurants, including the open-air boulevard of Renaissance Mall. The hotel offers 237 rooms and suites designed in a contemporary Caribbean flavor. Exclusive to the guests of the Renaissance Curacao is the Infinity Beach Club. It features an exceptional beach experience, infinity pool, spa cabanas, sweeping views of the Caribbean and a beachside bar & grill.
