About us

The Ritz History

The colorful history of The Ritz started in 1938 when Otto Senior founded the Ritz Ice Factory with his wife Rosalynde. For almost 70 years The Ritz had been the largest Ice Cream factory in the Caribbean. It made and sold ice cream, sugar cones, ice cubes, milk, yoghurt and juices. In 1999 the factory stopped production and was abandoned.

As of 2004 Hans & Christine have preserved this Industrial Heritage site and turned the old Ice Cream factory into the colorful boutique Village you can visit today. We invite you to join us in our tropical oasis in the heart of Willemstad!
