The small-scale resort is uniquely located on the Kaminda Sorobon: a beautiful winding road from Kralendijk to the beaches of Sorobon that takes you right through the protected natural area of Lac Bay.

Red Palm Village is an eco-friendly, child-friendly and LGBT-friendly resort where guests can celebrate their holidays with respect for each other and respect for the nature.

Near to the park there are lots of activities. From canoeing and snorkelling in the mangroves to horseback riding and swimming in the sea with the horses of Horse Ranch Bonaire. From surfing, swimming and enjoying drinks and bites on the beaches of Sorobon to kite surfing, diving and sailing on the island’s west side.

And with Kralendijk just a few minutes away by car you can find yourself dining at one of the capital’s many exquisite restaurants in no time.

Despite Bonaire isn’t the biggest island, we highly recommend renting a car or scooter to get you to all the best places of the island.


At Red Palm Village we would like our guests to experience a lot of comfort and relaxation during their stay on Bonaire

* If you want to have your first breakfast in the fridge, send us a shopping list by email. For 10 dollars (excluding groceries costs) we will get it for you.



Our honeymoon in 2004 was our first encounter with the island and boy did we enjoy it! Of course in love with each other, but we also immediately fell in love with the island.

Lovely weather, enjoying a glass of wine after yet another snorkel session, fine dining in the night and exploring the island’s wonderful nature while cruising around in our Jeep. Love at first sight! And that love never vanished. In 2010 we bought our first house on the island, which initially served as a holiday house. In 2015 we decided to permanently move to the island and officially become Bonaireans.
