Project Profile: Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusive

Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusive (Tamarijn Aruba), the astonishing 135,000-square-foot, all inclusive resort attracts vacationers from around the world. With 236 beachfront guestrooms and an impressive average occupancy rate of 80 percent, the resort still found itself flooded with customer complaints. Malfunctioning HVAC systems, poor air quality and moisture were the top criticisms from patrons. Not to mention, the resort was suffering from Aruba’s high energy costs. Tamarijn Aruba knew it needed to improve guest experience and lower energy consumption. The best solution was an HVAC overhaul.

Our Variable Refrigerant Flow system replaced the old system in 12 2,800-square-foot guest buildings. Paying for itself in just three years with its energy savings, the system turned a flood of customer complaints into a stream of compliments.

“The product has exceeded all expectations. Hotel guests are happy about the comfort and the hotel itself is happy since there are so few issues with the equipment,” said Henk Swart, Tamarijn Aruba’s chief engineer.

The system has also brought the resort positive attention from programs like Earth Check, which promote and reward sustainable tourism and research.
