NEW YORK (March 11, 2009) -  With tax season in full swing, the newly-opened Renaissance Curaçao Resort & Casino and the popular Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino are allowing travelers to ‘write off' the first day of their vacation when booking four nights (minimum) by April 15, 2009.  As a part of the plan to help amortize the cost of a four night vacation, the resorts will also "eat" the cost of daily breakfast for two - a value of more than $150 over four nights.  The package is good for travel through December 21, 2009. 

 "We want to get travelers in the right frame of mind.  We want them to experience sun, sand and sea, not savings accounts, securities and the stock market," said Paul Gielen, general manager of the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino

Rates for the vacation ‘Write Off' start at $279 per night at the Renaissance Curaçao Resort & Casino and $270 per night at the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino, representing a savings of more than 30 percent.  Rate is based on availability and exclusive of tax and service charge.  Please use the "S29" booking code when making a reservation at or
