BONAIRE, DUTCH ANTILLES--(Marketwire - Jan 7, 2013) - After the hustle and bustle of the holidays, and as the frigid winter weather sets in, defrost and de-stress while you soak up the sun at the Caribbean's premier dive and luxury beach club resort. Located in the Dutch Antilles on a four-acre, private peninsula on the balmy island of Bonaire, Harbour Village Beach Club offers luxurious private villas nestled amid lush tropical gardens and a powder-white sand beach lined with swaying palm trees.
A member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, Harbour Village offers a wide range of fun-in-the-sun activities that include the best diving opportunities in the Caribbean. Bonaire has been designated as having the most pristine coral reef environment and most species of fish in the Caribbean by the NOAA and is consistently named Best Overall Dive Destination by Scuba Diving Magazine's Reader's Choice Awards. The resort features an onsite First Class 5 Star PADI Dive Center, Great Adventures Bonaire, and dive sites just off its shore. The nearest, just 50 yards out from the beach, is the shipwreck of the 60-foot "Our Confidence," a great spot for beginners that can even be seen by snorkelers from the surface. Another popular dive site, "Something Special," is also a short swim from shore. Daily boat dives to numerous other sites, dive instruction for all levels including advanced certification and specialties, and equipment rental are all offered.
In addition to diving, the resort's concierge can help you craft the perfect itinerary of island adventures. Explore natural wonders such as Bonaire's famed solar salt beds and one of the world's largest pink flamingo nesting grounds, or catch a glimpse of the island's rare Bonairean Lora Parrot. Or relax at the resort, lounging at the seaside pool, dozing in a hammock on the beach or taking to the waves with our complimentary kayaks. After a fun-filled day, return to your luxurious villa located just a few steps away from the beach. The accommodations feature opulent décor and thoughtful details like secluded lanais and double hammocks.
