The Connection Between Driekiel Turtles and Amsterdam Manor

Discover the timeless connection between Driekiel turtles and Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort in Aruba.


The Driekiel or leatherback sea turtle has been coming to Aruba's shores for generations, this makes them certainly Aruba’s first repeat visitors. Each year, it returns to the same nesting ground in an enduring display of nature. At Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort, we feel a deep connection to this ancient ritual; as this energy is also evident in our guests returning to our resort year after year, drawn by the magic of Aruba and our warm hospitality.

The Amsterdam Manor, with its Dutch colonial architecture and intimate atmosphere, embodies the feeling of home. It is a place where families gather, memories are made, and traditions are passed down. Like the mother turtle returning to her nest, our guests return to Amsterdam Manor, year after year, seeking the comfort, familiarity, and joy it represents.

The Driekiel turtle has an incredible journey of resilience and survival that we can all learn from. These amazing creatures brave the vast oceans and treacherous currents, all driven by a strong desire to return home. Our guests at the Amsterdam Manor also face their own challenges and complexities in life. But like the Driekiel turtle, they too find their way back to the sanctuary of our hotel, where they can rest and rejuvenate. We're proud to be a part of our guests' journey and to offer them a safe haven during their travels.

The connection between the Driekiel turtle and the Amsterdam Manor is more than just symbolic. It is a story of homecoming, deep connection, and tradition's enduring power. It is a story that resonates with us all, reminding us of the importance of family, cherished memories, and the places that hold a special place in our hearts.

Just as the Driekiel turtle carries the spirit of Aruba within its shell, the Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort carries the spirit of its guests. We are more than just a resort; we are a home away from home, where generations of families have created lasting memories. And like the Driekiel turtle, we will continue to welcome our guests back, year after year, forever bound by the timeless connection of Aruba.
