Remodeled and refurnished, Harbour Village has just completed a $4.5 million renovation. Located on the leeward side of Bonaire, Harbour Village remains Bonaire’s most exclusive resort and one of the Caribbean’s most luxurious.
Dallas based interior design firm, Wilson and Associates, have redesigned the suites and dining areas of the resort. Renovations include the addition of fine teakwood furniture and European tiled floors. Designer bedding, draperies, upholstery and area rugs were added, as well as expanded closet space. Updated bathrooms feature separate showers and freestanding tubs all equipped with new fixtures. In addition, villa kitchens have been equipped with state of the art appliances.
There are several levels of accommodations available at Harbour Village. Thirty marina/courtyard rooms and one- and two-bedroom luxury suites make up the Beach Club. All rooms offer Dutch-Caribbean-style architecture, cable TV, in-room safes, air condition, toiletries and French doors opening on to terraced balconies. The luxurious one and two-bedroom suites include wet bar style kitchenettes, mini-refrigerators, hammocks and ceiling fans. Additionally, Harbour Village is the only place in Bonaire to find beachfront villas.
Located adjacent to the Beach Club is Portofino Hotel and Yacht Club with ideal accommodations for divers and budget conscious travelers. These 21 rooms offer an affordable price point and easy access to the 64-slip marina and dive boats. The vast reefs and marine life along the coast of Bonaire make it a top rated scuba and snorkeling destination. True adventurers can explore a recent shipwreck just off the beaches of Harbour Village, which offers a fascinating new and convenient dive or snorkel site.
For those interested in making Bonaire
more permanent, Harbour Village offers, one and two-bedroom condominiums available for purchase. All condominiums are available furnished or unfurnished with waterfront views and Beach Club privileges.
In addition to Harbour Village’s multi-million dollar renovations, there is a full service fitness center and a state of the art spa opening soon. Other amenities include a Guest Member lounge, tennis facilities, meeting rooms and two restaurants, La Balandra Beach Bar & Grille serving international cuisine and local Caribbean specialties, plus the independently operated Lighthouse Bar and Grille located on the marina.
