Bonaire reveals new website

Tourism Corporation Bonaire has announced the launch of their new official website site has been developed according to Bonaire’s new branding guidelines, and provides visitors with easily accessible information while capturing the Island’s friendly charm.

Visitors to the new website will be welcomed by some of Bonaire’s most familiar faces and greeted with “Kon ta Bai?” which is the Papiamentu (Bonaire’s native language) phrase for “how are you?”  This theme is continued throughout the site with profiles of Bonaire’s image-builders including Lieutenant Governor Herbert Domacasse, Mama Smile and artist Henk Roozendaal.  Each time a visitor returns to they will be greeted by a different image-builder, new stories and dynamic photography.

Never has so much information about Bonaire been located on one site.  Each entity of the private sector (hotels, restaurants, car rentals, activity providers, etc.) has a designated area and through access with a username and password, these areas have been developed with their own style using the many choices available with the Island’s new branding guidelines, and will be kept up to date with the most current information available to consumers.  All content on is currently available in two languages: English and Dutch; and coming soon, all content will also be available in Spanish and Portuguese.

Bonaire’s new website was developed by a volunteer team of international writers and website professionals and reviewed by a committee for quality assurance.  This initial launch of the website is of Version 1.0.  Version 2.0 will be launched later this year and will include more features including videos and interactive maps.  For more information about Bonaire’s new official website, email Roosje van der Hoek at [email protected]
