Divi planning all inclusive Bonaire build

The Divi
Group, which operates nine Divi Resorts on six Caribbean islands, as well as
two all inclusive resorts in Aruba, has announced that it will build a new
beachfront
all inclusive resort on the Dutch Caribbean island of Bonaire.Construction of the
resort is expected to
begin in spring 2007, with completion scheduled for the end of 2008.

Offering an all inclusive program based on the same
successful all inclusive concept as the Divi Tamarijn Aruba All
Inclusives in Aruba, the new resort will rise to four stories and will
feature
275 spacious ocean and beach view units plus sixty ocean view condominiums
adjacent
to the property.  The condos will available
for full ownership with a hotel rental program and people who own/use these
units will have access to all resort facilities. 

Resort
amenities will include a large beach, full
service dive center, state-of-the-art fitness center, rock climbing wall,
large
infinity pool, a selection of restaurants
and
bars, on-site spa, casino and shops.  All
food and beverage outlets will be open to non-hotel guests as well as
guests of
the Divi Flamingo Beach Resort Casino, Divi Resorts current property
in Bonaire.
Management
of the new all inclusive resort will fall under the Divi All Inclusive Group
in Aruba, with both properties on the island
sharing a management team.

“As the first
all inclusive on Bonaire we will be able to introduce the island to a new
segment of travelers that enjoy the ease and wide array of amenities
offered by
an all inclusive property,” said Alex Nieuwmeyer, who oversees Divi’s
operations in Aruba and Bonaire.  “The
untapped market potential of Bonaire and the opportunity to expand the Divi
brand in a destination that is committed to sustainable tourism and that we
have a history in (as the operators of the Divi Flamingo) made good business
sense.”
