Dylan and Maud
We are Dylan & Maud and owners of The Palm Leaf Apartments Aruba. Dylan was born in Colombia and moved to Aruba in his teen years, Maud was born in the Netherlands and moved to Aruba in 2015 where we met and fell in love. We got married in 2017 and bought a piece of land in Aruba in the same year.
Both having a background in business and hospitality and being familiar with the tourism sector in Aruba, we always had a dream of managing our own boutique hotel. In 2019 we realized our dream and December 2019 we opened our doors for guests.
We had an amazing first quarter before we had to close our doors (temporarily) because of COVID. Aruba was among 1 of the countries hit hardest with the pandemic, but this didn’t get us down; we kept believing in our dream and a couple of months later we slowly started to build up again. Now Aruba is officially open for happiness, and making a comeback as one of the safest islands to travel to, we have been busy welcoming guests back ever since.
We manage The Palm Leaf together and we are at your service from pre-booking throughout the duration of your stay.
We look forward to welcoming you personally at your check in!
Sunny greetings from Paradise,
Dylan & Maud
