Westin Resort in Aruba offers $300 for Babymoons … $300 “conception credit” … What Would They Offer if You lost a Child Like Natalee Holloway While on Vacation


How desperate have resorts become in Aruba to draw business to create ridiculous marketing campaigns?

How ironic is it that a resort on a Caribbean Island where Aruba is more known for the taking away of a child’s life with regards to Natalee Holloway, is actually promoting “conception” marketing.

Aruba NH Vanderbilt

The Westin Resort in Aruba is offering $300 for “babymoons”. Along comes the latest gimmick to get you to go to Aruba. With tourism down any gimmick will due. However, let’s think about what the Westin is offering. It’s a “conception credit” on your next stay, not a rebate from your current one. So one would tend to think that a couple would not be vacation while pregnant or in the distant future following the birth. Then the expenses of a new born and the constant care that is required, so when would one go back to the Westin and is there a time limit that they are not stating?

Aruba 3 suspects

Come to Aruba and the Westin, It’s Safe … Your pals Satish, Joran Van der Sloot & Deepak

It would appear that some one else agrees with us that this is nothing more than a shameless “get knocked up” marketing ploy. Some how the vacation to the Aruba Westin is to be planned just perfectly in advance that the couple hits the conceiving window just perfectly. HUH?

Inspired by coral spawning season on the island, The Westin Resort on Aruba is offering twosomes a $300 “conception credit” toward their next stay if they conceive a child while staying Sept.1-Dec. 19.

How do you prove that the Westin was the site of the happy occurrence? With a note from a doctor saying the stay occurred around the likely conception date.

However, one needs to ask the Westin Resort and other Aruba Hotels, what tourism gimmick would they offer if a person is given a date rape drug, sexually assaulted, presumed murdered and goes missing forever while vacationing on Aruba?

Is there a special missing in paradise hotel stay credit given for having a child disappear on Aruba and for having the prime suspects in the case never prosecuted? So what would the Westin offer in a marketing campaign if a family lost their child like in the case of Natalee Holloway? Just curious.

Actually the offer was inspired by the fact that tourism is down in Aruba.

Preliminary data on real tourism receipts 3 show a 10.4 percent contraction in May
2009, compared to an 8.3 percent increase in the corresponding period of 2008. In May 2009, the average occupancy rate of both hotels and timeshares registered a 3.3 percentage points fall to 68.2 percent, compared to a year earlier. The number of cruise passengers dropped by 13.3 percent compared to May 2008, while the number of ship calls grew by 66.7 percent, indicating that relatively smaller ships called at Aruba’s port.

Since the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in May 2005, a the Lifetime movie network has created the made for TV movie of the Natalee Holloway story … Missing in Aruba.

      Leave it to Aruba. How tasteless, just solve the disappearance and return Natalee’s remains to her family so they can have foreclosure.

    2. justice4nat on August 30th, 2009 1:09 pm

      #1 I agree with you… totally tasteless. I would never visit Aruba, but they could go a long way to redeeming themselves if they solved Natalee’s case and returned her to her family.

      PS……it’s closure, not foreclosure. Foreclosure usually occurs when the bank repossess a home or other property.

    3. rightknight on August 30th, 2009 1:43 pm

      Yuppers, you can do it to yourself,
      and/or Aruba will do it to you!

    4. Greg the Mongoose on August 30th, 2009 5:30 pm

      Its hard to get closure for Natalee, when JUSTICE is not served. Aruba has a Van der Sloot confession, a witness who has passed many lie detector tests that the Prosecutor ignores.

      From the beginning suspects Satish, Joran Van der Sloot & Deepak played the race card blaming the black security guards at the hotel. The Police chief protecting his godson Joran by not starting a investigation till the evidence was destroyed. It is just too much for Aruba to stick its head in the sand!
      My best guess is that the Van der Sloot family is one of the families that controls this little Island. Above the LAW? They must be the richest family on the Island? Or they own half the island?

      Poor Natalee, given a knockout drug. Than raped by Joran on the beach. Natalee went into coma from the rape drug. Later to be dumped into the ocean. Probably still alive? With Joran’s father the JUDGE picking up his killer son near the beach.

      Oh Lord give us justice!

    5. Dawg1948 on August 30th, 2009 6:52 pm

      Sorry about that justice4nat. I guess I have had foreclosure on the news so much lately I used the wrong word.

    6. Dawg1948 on August 30th, 2009 6:53 pm

      That should be heard foreclsure on the news. Looks like I have ten thumbs today also.

    7. A Texas Grandfather on August 30th, 2009 7:55 pm

      I hope the turist business in Aruba and all the ABC islands totally dies. I feel sorry for people who live on these islands and must put up with such a currupt government and police force.
      The only way there is ever going to be justice for Natalee is for a group of American citizens to go to Aruba and take all the actors in this case to an undisclosed location and get the answers to this case by what ever means are necessary. This should have been done four years ago.

    8. Buster on August 30th, 2009 8:11 pm

      Aruba sucks worse than any thing that ever sucked before !!! Kind of like that yo something
      aruba does not care for any thing but there own species urin vandercrap included. I hope Natalee inspires a horror movie based on what urin did to her so the memories of Natalee never dies for generations to come.
      What have the vandercraps been up to ??? Any news or stories on the net ??? I hope urin is hiding some where like sadam had to.

      Good Arubans never breathe.

      I like them most, dead. It is when I find
      them the most charming!


      Those that love her, never forget, no matter how much time goes by.

      You call me Jackie Boy, and the next sentence call me a woman. Which is it DAVE. You seem about as confused with that as you are with your life. Obama has one foot out the door huh? It seems to me he still has over 3 more years of making you narrow minded people angry. What time is the next clan meeting?

    14. Maggie on August 31st, 2009 5:11 pm

      screw aruba… only thing worth going there to see is a trial for the ones who harmed Natalee Holloway..and covered it up. Start with Renfro.. The police have good solid evidence against the 2 black security guards for kidnapping and murder..straten says.

    15. allank on August 31st, 2009 9:05 pm

      You can thank Beth Twitty’s sister-in-law for this one.

      Yes, that’s correct, Natalee’s Aunt is in charge of PR/Marketing for the Westin Aruba.

      Ironic, no?

      Keep a pulse on this story. Never forget Natalee!! NEVER!!

      Fanatismo of odio por pone hende distancia di realidad!
      Publication: Dialuna, 21 September 2009. Categoria: Editorial, General

      Dirigi na Miriam Henriquez Bruin.
      Ta con un persona cu ta considera su mes “inteligente” por pone riba internet pa tur hende mira con comprometi e ta cu e delincuentenan di Gobierno e siguiente frase: “Den un Democracia ta keda na PUEBLO pa huzga ken nan ta considera corupto of no…”. O sea cu pa bo tur e actonan di corupcion exponi cu documentonan irefutable, ta algo ‘normal’, con tal cu e Mepistanan den Pueblo bisabo cu ta asina! Ta tristo constata cu na caminda bo a desvia pa e mundo di irealidad!

      E huzgamento di un acto di corupcion, no ta un competencia di Pueblo como tal, sino di e Leynan cu el a acepta via su Parlamento pa goberna e materia; den e di dos lugar, di e Normanan y Balornan acepta pa PUEBLO. Ta e comprobacion di un acto di corupcion, apoya indiscutiblemente pa documentonan irefutable, ta condene pasobra e ta un violacion di loke Pueblo a establece como regla, no e simple ‘opinion’ o ‘creencia’ di algun individuo o sector di comunidad, motiva (manera den bo caso) pa un postura politico insostenible! No ta pasobra bo ta un compinchi di nan pa desgracia Aruba cu Independencia bo mester purba hustifica lo inhustificable! E no ta un postura di gaba!

      Fuera di esey, bo odio inmenso contra Hulanda y e Hulandesnan, o bo rechazo di nan ta bon conoci via bo remitidonan cu e inicialnan MHB, y keremi cu Pueblo NO ta comparti cu bo e actitud ey! Nos Pueblo sa hopi mas di loke abo ta dune credito pe, pasobra e ta firme den su posicion di NO perde nos pasport Hulandes, di NO kier separa di Hulanda, di KIER ta parti di un Europa progresista, y di KIER conserva su respet pa e dignatarionan di Hulanda, especialmente nos Reina y su famia. Bo desprecio o rechazo pa nan tur, obvio den tur bo remitidonan, no tin e apoyo di nos Pueblo! Y bo campaña solitario pro e independencia di Aruba no ta conta tampoco cu e respaldo di e gran mayoria di nos Pueblo, pasobra nunca bo a aclarea ta den man di ken bo kier pa Aruba cay despues di e tal independencia ey.

      Unda bo “ehercito” ta pa defende nos contra e usurpadornan tropical? Unda bo lineanan di defensa ta contra e dictadornan den nos region ora cu Hulanda y su poder militar, apoya pa NATO y Merca, no tey mas pa defende y garantiza nos integridad teritorial? Ta con bo ta pretende pa nos bira e lamchi cu por sirbi di desayuno pa cualke lobo den vecindario? Si bo no ta al tanto di loke ta pasando rond di nos, ta urgente pa bo cuminza pone bo mes al dia y compronde e movimento anti-democratico cu ta recoriendo un bon parti di nos continente.

      Y ta unda bo kier pa nos studiantenan sigui nan estudionan superior cu e mesun facilidadnan y na e mesun costo cu Hulanda, nos madre patria, ta ofrece nan? Na Cuba? Na cualke otro pais cu ta desprecia bo sagrado “democracia” y a implanta un dictadura feroz na su lugar? Na e universidadnan cu a bira centronan, no di enseñanza, sino di indoctrinacion comunista?

      Mi a laga tur bo exposicionnan anterior pasa te awor, pero ora bo yega na e colmo di kier bira un Huez incompetente y un interprete falso di ‘corupcion’, e hemchi a yena y a bira tempo pa expone e odio o rechazo irazonable cu bo ta manifesta den tur bo escritonan, contra Hulanda y tur loke e ta representa pa nos: stabilidad politico, husticia y disciplina, ademas di progreso, respet pa derechonan humano, y ruman mayor cu tey semper pa duna nos un man ora un Gobierno corupto manera esun di MEP crea un situacion financiero asina malo cu e ta exigi su yudanza! Pa mi, ta un inconsciente y malagradecido so por bira lomba pa tur e beneficionan cu nos ta haya di Hulanda, y e sombra benefactor cu e tin colga riba nos isla pa resto di mundo mustra nos e mes respet cu e ta ricibi di tur e paisnan democratico y progresista cu mi conoce!
      Nan ta bisa berdad cu “macaco ta hunga cu e wowo di su yiu te ora e sake”, pero den e caso aki esey no ta bay pasa pasobra nos no ta bay permiti abo o hendenan cu bo mesun pensamentonan independentista comete e locura ey cu Aruba. Den e Referendum cu mester tuma lugar pa dilucida e punto ey den futuro, si esey bira e caso, boso derota ta bay ta mes grandi cu esun cu MEP ta bay sufri Diabierna awor!

      Pa un BERDADERO CAMBIO aki na Aruba:

      Pueblo mester vota pa dos Partido NOBO, y NO pa e dos Partidonan BIEU, cu ya pa semper a ser maneha pa e mesun dos pa cuater/cinco famianan di custumber: Ta asina so, di BERDAD lo bin CAMBIO.
      Duna otro famianan Arubano e oportunidad pa demostra cu nan tambe tin un Amor Grandi pa nos PAIS y Pueblo, y sa di pone e interesnan di Aruba na prome lugar!
      Ta asina di BERDAD por cuminza duna balor IGUAL na TUR famia Arubiano y yega na un sincero y profundo UNION aki na Aruba!
      Nos NO por permiti cu ta laga politiconan dj’afor sigui DIVIDI, MANIPULA nos Pueblo entre e mesun dos Partidonan Bieu, y laga e mesun famianan Arubiano nan so carga cu e peso grandi di ser persigui y kibra cu tur sorto di acusacion y critica.

      Por mira con Politiconan Hulandes den nan GUERRA CONTINUO CONTRA nos Pais, cada vez ATROBE ta uza e Nacionalidad y Pasaporte hulandes como bacoba pa cohe macaco y BLACKMAIL nos Pueblo, no ta tristo? Anto ayuda y sosteni den esaki pa algun “Arubiano”, ignorante, cu mas bien ta considera nan mes colonistanan hulandes cu mester traha semper pa e interesnan hulandes y encontra di e interes Arubano. Un prueba chikito di esaki ta, cu ainda nos ambtenaarnan tin impone riba nan, como nan idioma di trabou, e idioma di e pais madre, colonizador!
      Otro prueba awe ta cu mientras trahadornan Arubano ta perdiendo trabou, politiconan hulandes kier bin impone un ley pa habri porta pa tur trahador hulandes den reino y tur trahador den e union europeo cu ta
      sin trabou, por basha bin biba na Aruba?
      Cu e unico meta pa sigui causa division y sigui manipula, bruha y kanker nos soberania,autonomia y derechonan? Y pa chercha di nos trahadornan?
      Anto ki ora cu Aruba purba defende su mes contra abusonan asina, ta nos ta ser acusa si lo kier declara guerra contra Hulanda?

      Ki ora cu ta, cu nan maluza e nacionalidad y pasaporte hulandes, mescos cu nan a sa di maluza e 8-8 pa enganja nos Arubianonan den NAN GUERRA CONTINUO contra Aruba su lucha pa separacion, pa a garantiza y defende nos AUTONOMIA, nos libertad, igualdad y soberania den reino: ta nos ta wordo acusa di lo kier declara guerra contra Hulanda?.
      Ki bal nos keda den un reino den cual nos Autonomia no ta ser respeta y tur dia ta na peliger di wordo asalta y viola, bou di menaza di e nacionalidad y pasaporte hulandes, cu nan ta uza como arma pa blackmail nos cu n’e, pa pone nos cai na rudia pa por keda cu n’e? ?

      Pa un CAMBIO, di berdad: vota pa e dos partido NOBO, mihor prepara y capacita!
      Pone tur e lidernan y candidatonan di e partidonan actual bo dilanti, y analiza y skoge pa esun partido:
      Cu bo ta kere cu di BERDAD, TA representa un cambio, un CAMBIO pa miho, un CAMBIO pa nos PAIS porfin di BERDAD ser RESPETA!
      Un CAMBIO pa nos para pa semper e BLACKMAIL y GUERRA continuo den reino, hiba pa e hulandesnan CONTRA nos PAIS, CONTRA nos Pueblo!
      Mirando entre otro con desde Mei 2002: following the UK’s White Paper on Overseas Territories. Bermudians were offered automatic acquisition of British citizenship, including automatic transmission of citizenship to their children; the right of abode, including the right to live and work in the U.K. and the European Union ; and the right not to exercise or to formally renounce British citizenship. Y nos Arubianonan? Nos ainda NO por tin e mesun libertad y derecho ey?
      Respet pa nos LIBERTAD y DERECHO pa carga cu dignidad y honor nos propio nacionalidad, y pasaporte: ta asina so, di BERDAD por trece cambio, union, paz y BERDADERO RESPET pa otro den un Reino libra pa semper di paternalismo, dominio y subyugacion!

      December 19, 1985
      Dear Mr. Speaker: (Dear Mr. President:)
      I am writing to inform you of my intent to add Aruba to the list of beneficiary developing countries under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) Program, effective January 1, 1986.
      Aruba will become independent of the Netherlands Antilles on January 1, 1986. The Netherlands Antilles is a GSP Beneficiary and this designation will permit Aruba to continue to receive GSP benefits after it becomes independent.
      This notice is submitted in accordance with section 502(a)(1) of the Trade Act of 1974.

      “…in anticipation of a separate independent status for Aruba, under negotiation at the present time, the authorities
      of Aruba have informed the Administrator that as of 1 January 1986, the island..”

      Governing Council of the United Nations Development Programme
      29 May 1985
      Thirty-second session
      June 1985, New York
      Item 5 (b) of the provisional agenda

      Separate Indicative Planning Figure Allocation for Aruba

      Note by the Administrator

      1. In its decision 80/30, and as confirmed in decision 81/16, the Governing
      Council approved an illustrative 1982-1986 indicative planning figure (IPF)
      $1.5 million for the Netherlands Antilles. Subsequently, the 1982-1986
      programming level for the Netherlands Antilles was established at $1.2 million
      in pursuance of decision 83/14 VI, in which the Governing Council, inter alia,
      requested the Administrator, subject to his determination that the necessary
      resources were available, to apply 80 per cent of the respective illustrative
      IPFs to those developing countries whose illustrative IPFs were $1.5 million or
      less and to which certain supplementary criteria applied.
      2. The Netherlands Antilles currently is a federation of six islands (Aruba,
      Bonaire, Cura@ao, St. Maarten, St. Eustatius and Saba) which forms a part of
      the Kingdom of the Netherlands. However, in anticipation of a separate independent
      status for Aruba, under negotiation at the present time, the authorities
      of Aruba have informed the Administrator that as of 1 January 1986, the island
      will no longer fall under the central Government of the Netherlands Antilles
      but will co-operate with the other islands on a different basis. At the same
      time, they have requested the Administrator to establish a separate illustrative
      IPF for Aruba as of 1 January 1986.
      3. The Administrator therefore brings to the attention of the Council that
      he intends to establish a separate 1982-1986 illustrative IPF for Aruba by
      apportioning to the new entity $570,000 of the total $1.5 million 1982-1986
      illustrati~e IPF for the Netherlands Antilles. This will make it possible to
      calculate the balance of programming funds still available to Aruba and the
      other five islands respectively for the last year of the third programming
      cycle taking into account Aruba’s share in actual and foreseen project
      expenditures for the years 1982-1985 under the authorized programming level
      of $1.2 million for 1982-1986 for all six islands°
      4. The apportionment is based primarily on Aruba’s population in relation
      to the population of the Netherlands Antilles as a whole, as well as data
      available on GNP per capita for the different islands. A separate illustrative
      IPF for Aruba will also be calculated with regard to the fourth programming
      cycle along the same lines.
