Visitors to Bonaire will now vacation in more comfort than ever. Many of the top resorts and villas on the island have made improvements that will elevate the guest experience.

Bonaire Oceanfront Villa has completed renovations during 2010 and the property is now accepting guests. The renovations include new features throughout the villa, including a new kitchen which has been completely remodeled and enlarged to twice its previous size. There are new appliances including a full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave and coffeemaker, as well as new windows and cabinetry. The third-floor rooftop terrace has new terracotta tile flooring, while the two bedroom balconies on the second floor now have roofs, allowing usage regardless of the weather.

Caribbean Club Bonaire has announced the opening of its new studios and penthouses. The new studios, which feature private porches, are located on the ground floor and are equipped with a kitchenette, refrigerator and television. All of the new apartments are air-conditioned, and every bedroom has a private bathroom.

Divi Flamingo Beach Resort & Casino sports new additions and amenities at the property. The lobby has new furnishings of woven woods and cool white fabrics while all guestrooms and suites now have 26-inch flat-screen televisions and new platform beds.

Harbour Village Beach Club’s dive center Great Adventures Bonaire, has just partnered with privately owned diver center Aqua Lung’s Partner Center. This new dive center will offer up-to-date and well-maintained rental equipment, inspected and tested cylinders and valves, factory trained repair technicians and qualified staff.
