It is closed for good, abandoned with weeds growing all over.

I had forgotten all about it, I had stopped there the first time I was in Aruba in 1983, noticed it this past June on the way to the airport.

My husband and I stayed at the Bushiri for our honeymoon in 1998. When we were in Aruba a couple of weeks ago we drove by the Bushiri to/from the airport and remarked about how the place we spent our honeymoon is now rundown and falling apart. Even though the Bushiri was not a 5-star resort it is still sad to see it looking like that.

I hate to hear the Bushiri is closed. It was our honeymoon place also. Too bad someone has not bought it and reopened it.

Thanks for the info.

My husband and I honeymooned there as well--in 1991. I can still remember the activities crew--they were all so nice. We booked there on the advice of my aunt (a travel agent) because it was one of the few "all inclusive" resorts back then. We had a blast---so sad that it's not in operation any more. What a week of fun memories, though.

I walked over to the Bushiri when we were in Aruba in July...There are actually still chairs setting on the back balconies on anything above the ground floor. There is still a small sandy beach on the south side of the property.
