The Chef

Behind every memorable dining experience at Divi & Tamarijn Aruba is our world-class Executive Chef and his exemplary team of kitchen staff and services. Meet Chef Paul.

Appealing to the senses through food is at the heart of Executive Chef Paul Zijlstra. His passion for delicious, beautifully plated fresh food led him to the Culinary Hotel School in Amsterdam, and he later trained in Holland with Dutch Master Chefs. In 2008, Chef Paul left the reef-lined Caribbean coast of Bonaire for the year-round sunny skies and sandy beaches of Aruba, where he joined Divi Resorts as Executive Chef at Windows on Aruba and Mulligans Restaurant.

In 2016, he took the reigns as Executive Chef for Divi & Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusives and introduced theme nights that have become iconic for resort guests. Reflecting his exceptional culinary skills, Chef Paul has overseen the sourcing of fresh, quality food for tens of thousands of diners, as well as members of Dutch, Aruban, and foreign governments, members of Parliament, and Dutch royalty.
