For those wondering what ‘Barbulet’ means, it is butterfly in Papiamento, which is the main language spoken on Aruba. Papiamento was recognized as an official language in May 2003 and is derived originally from Portuguese and African and has influences of Dutch, English, Spanish and Indian. The business name Barbulet Concierge Aruba came from Freya’s love for butterflies.
Freya her last position was as Quality Assurance Manager at the Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa, one of the most popular low-rise hotels on the island. After working at Manchebo for almost 4 years Freya decided to focus only on Barbulet Concierge to make her business a success in December 2016.
