PALM BEACH, ARUBA January 9th, 2014- Boardwalk Small Hotel recently expanded their guest services by offering a full breakfast menu. It is the first time since twin sisters Stephanie and Kimberly Rooijakkers took over Boardwalk in 2011 that this small hotel offers a breakfast service. The breakfast menu also offers locally grown fruits, as Boardwalk strives to promote Aruban products and local suppliers.

The brand new breakfast menu includes ‘classics’ such as your choice of tea or coffee, fresh juice, breads, bacon, cheese, tropical fruits, yogurts and a boiled egg. In addition the Champagne Breakfast includes two glasses of …Champagne for a luxurious start of the day, while the Vitality Breakfast provides for a healthy start, including a fresh fruit smoothie and yogurt with granola and flaxseeds. The Local Breakfast features a favorite local morning snack, arepa, which comes with cheese or scrambled eggs. Breakfast can be ordered in advance and is served between 8:30 AM and 11:30 AM at the guests’ private casita.

“This is such a big deal for us”, explains Kimberly. “We are always looking for ways to further improve the service for our guests. Starting the day with a freshly brewed cup of Nespresso coffee and healthy breakfast items, served on the patio of their own private casita is an extra touch that will add to the overall vacation experience of our guests. Being a small, family-run hotel we are extremely proud to be able to offer this new breakfast service to our guests”, Kimberly concludes.

Twin sister Stephanie who has a chefs-title from the renowned Hotel School Ter Duinen in Koksijde, Belgium, developed the breakfast menu and selected the various menu items. “We opted for products that will pleasantly surprise our guests or give a taste of Aruba, such as the delicious and healthy dragon fruit. This exotic, seasonal fruit is locally grown and our guests had a very positive response to it so far. We love to surprise our guests with a local flavor that is new to them and add a personal touch at the same time”, says Stephanie.

Boardwalk Small Hotel consists of 14 casita’s amidst lush gardens, tucked away on a historic coconut plantation, just steps from Aruba’s beautiful Palm Beach. Boardwalk Small Hotel was recently renovated and now offers private suites with a spacious living room, fully equipped kitchen, separate bedroom(s), modern bathroom and outdoor patio with hammock, teak furniture and a BBQ. This year Boardwalk Small Hotel was named ‘best hidden gem in the Caribbean’ by USA Today and listed as preferred lodging in Aruba by the New York Times.
