This July and August, Windows on Aruba is pleased to welcome the esteemed Chef Jermain de Rozario, who will present a 3-course lunch and 5-course dinner to its guests.

Chef Jermain de Rozario is a talented young celebrity chef from Holland who, after having worked under Chef Soneil Badhoer from The Lindenhof (2-star Michelin), has now opened his own restaurant, De Rozario. Chef Jermain cooks with his own unique style, crossing boundaries by combining classic recipes with his love of Indonesian flavors.

In the past year, he has been a judge for Top Chef and has received a Bib Gourmand. In Holland, he is currently featured in a television program called De Nieuwe Garde, which follows several of the country’s up-and-coming chefs and sommeliers.

In addition to this recognition, he also recently became a member of the JRE, an association of talented young gastronomes with 350 members and 160 hotels spread across 16 countries: Belgium, Denmark, Germany, France, Ireland, Italy, Croatia, Luxembourg, Nederland, Austria, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

Windows on Aruba will serve Chef Jermain de Rozario’s 3-course lunch menu for $75 per person on Friday, July 28 and Friday, August 4 at 1 p.m. The lunch will be accompanied by a demonstration by mentalist Guy Bavli, who is currently performing every Thursday and Friday at the Alhambra Casino. Chef Jermain’s 5-course dinner, paired with a selection of wines from local Aruban winery Pepia Est, will be served on Saturday, July 29 and Saturday, August 5 at 7:30 p.m. for $115 per person. The dinner and wine pairing will be accompanied by live jazz.

Chef Jermain will be present at all seatings to explain each dish as it is served. For those interested in securing a reservation to one of these limited seatings, please call 297-523-5017 or email clubhouse@diviresorts.com. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime culinary opportunity!

Top Caribbean Summer Destinations for 2017

As you plan your summer vacation, don’t forget about the Caribbean! It’s beautiful part of the world year-round, including in summer. You’ll find all the familiar things you love about the Caribbean—the amazing beaches, cooling tropical breezes and delicious food—and fewer of the things you love a little less. The crowds are thinner in summer, and seasonal hotel rates are lower. Check out a few of the best Caribbean destinations for summer travel, as recommended by the Caribbean Journal: Barbados, Aruba, St. Maarten’s French side and St. Croix.

We love traveling in the Caribbean during summer. It’s the perfect time to take your kids, since they’re out of school. And with the reduced crowds, it can be that much easier to score a palapa on the beach for a day.

Is it time for your family to think Caribbean? What do you enjoy about the Caribbean in summer?

25 Most Beautiful Places in the Caribbean

The Caribbean offers so much more than beaches in terms of beautiful scenery—although it’s also home to some of the best beaches in the world. Conde Nast Traveler published a list of the 25 Most Beautiful Places in the Caribbean, and we’re proud that three of our islands are featured in it.

The National Marine Park on Bonaire includes all waters surrounding the island. Its protected status is the reason Bonaire has the clearest water you’ll see anywhere, teeming with diverse marine life. Bathsheba Beach on Barbados is situated on the majestic eastern shore, a breathtaking stretch of rocky coastline and vibrant greenery. Renaissance Island on Aruba offers the perfect opportunity to view flamingos and take photos with these odd yet beautiful birds. Check out all three amazing entries on the list when you visit us in the Caribbean!
