This year, thrill your Valentine with an unforgettably romantic escape to Harbour Village Beach Club, nestled on a secluded, silky sand beach that’s surrounded by gently swaying palm trees and calm, crystal-clear waters teeming with vibrant sea life and pristine reefs waiting to be explored.
A member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, Harbour Village Beach Club is located in the Dutch Antilles on a four-acre, private peninsula on the island of Bonaire. This idyllic tropical outpost, voted Bonaire’s Leading Hotel in the 2013 World Travel Awards, currently is offering an amazing Romance Package that includes seven nights in the posh accommodations of your choice, as well as:
• A romantic torch-lit dinner on the beach
• A relaxing aromatherapy couples massage
• A reserved double hammock on the beach and complimentary bottle of champagne to sip there as you take in the stunning seascape or watch the sun set
• A resort scuba experience for non-certified divers or one day of diving for certified divers (includes one boat dive and unlimited shore diving)
• Full American breakfast daily, unlimited use of the fitness center, tennis courts, and kayaks, and airport transfers to and from Harbour Village
During your stay, experience the perfect blend of pure relaxation, romance and unforgettable activities surrounded by pristine tropical beauty. Explore the island’s natural wonders together, 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. Discover why 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. Due to the island’s leeward location outside of the hurricane belt, and its consistently pleasant climate, crystal-clear visibility prevails at any depth.
Harbour Village features an onsite First Class PADI 5 Star Dive Resort 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. Daily boat dives to numerous other sites, dive instruction for beginner level through to advanced certification and specialties, and equipment rental are all offered. The resort even offers exciting night dives, using special UV lights to see the astounding array of florescent colors emitted by underwater animals and corals.
Or relax at the resort, lounging at the seaside pool, snuggling in a hammock on the beach, enjoying a playful game of tennis or taking to the waves in a complimentary kayak. After a fun-filled day, cozy up and watch the sun set in your luxurious villa located just steps from the beach. The romantic and private accommodations feature opulent décor and thoughtful details like secluded lanais and double hammocks.
Later, indulge in your private, gourmet torch-lit dinner on the beach at the resort’s acclaimed La Balandra Restaurant, designed after an antique Spanish ship and invoking the sensation of sailing with its dining deck located on a jetty extending out to sea. Or enjoy your aromatherapy couples massage at The Spa at Harbour Village Beach Club. A private cascade pool and pool deck offer a tranquil retreat before or after the treatment.
“Harbour Village is known as the top luxury dive destination, but we are also one of the most romantic spots in the Caribbean,” said Jean-Marc Petin, General Manager of Harbour Village Beach Club. “Especially for active couples, it doesn’t get any better than this.”
