It’s hard to walk a few steps in Bamboo Bonaire without finding a hammock. There is one in every 13 rooms, others scattered around the house, under (and over) the palm trees.
If there is a symbol of this place, it is the hammock: because Bamboo Bonaire, a gem of 13 rooms on the west coast of the island, has made relaxation an art.
Adults (guests must be 12 and up) Bamboo, which has been open for over ten years, will not remind you of many other hotels in Bonaire or the Caribbean. What is heard here is Bali, which has a beautiful landscape where swaying palm trees provide daily music, and flowing fountains cross paths.
These rooms are the perfect sanctuary, whether you choose a cottage with kitchenettes and endless open spaces or you go for a one-bedroom with a private pool or jacuzzi.
We love pool rooms, where “backyard” terraces with outdoor showers and magnesium pools seem to turn your room into its own space.
Bamboo is the perfect place to stay, a thoughtful, luxurious, uninhibited place on the island that is the epitome of a good boutique hotel: a place with the perfect balance of personality, design and service.
Amenities are top-notch on all fronts, from in-room Nespresso machines to a wellness center with the island’s best spa.
There is a beautiful swimming pool that serves as an outdoor library and relaxation area,
And although Bamboo cultivates a temple of relaxation on its own grounds, it is not a place of silence. This is a Bonaire resort, driving to Washington Slaagbai park or windsurfing in Lac Bay.
If you’re a swimmer, you’ll find unlimited, 24-7 tanks on site, all provided with ease, convenience.
It is also home to one of the best restaurants in the Caribbean, the international cuisine that is CHEFS Bonaire. And then there is the meeting, as attentive and friendly as you can find in any five-star resort, which looks, as it should be, to say “yes” to guests.
These are all the things that take a small, ordinary hotel and turn it into the best boutique hotel, with touches and combinations that go beyond the number of rooms.
It’s where you don’t want to leave – and it’s not the only time you need to take off.
In short, Bamboo is the best boutique hotel in Bonaire – and, currently, the best boutique hotel in the Dutch Caribbean. And there is nothing else like it.
