The Red palm village resort

The intimate chalet resort enjoys a unique location along Kaminda Sorobon, the picturesque winding road from Kralendijk that passes through the protected nature reserve of Lac Bay and leads to the world-famous surf beaches of Sorobon. Just a five-minute drive away, you’ll find several surf schools where you can take lessons or rent equipment.

Apart from the surfing opportunities, these beaches are also quite appealing for non-surfers: gorgeous white sand, turquoise waters, and various laid-back eateries ensure that even without surfing, you can have a great time. In addition, we have a lovely pool and sun deck where you can relax and unwind at our small-scale resort.

Red Palm Village is also the perfect base for kitesurfers. In just 10 minutes, you can be at Atlantis Beach, where kiters from all over the world take to the water and ride the often strong winds. After an intense day on the water and in the wind, you can be back home in minutes for a refreshing dip in our magnified pool while Chef Corjan is busy preparing dinner.

Beyond surfing and kitesurfing, there’s much more to explore in the park’s vicinity: canoeing and snorkeling in the mangrove, horseback riding and swimming with horses at Horse Ranch Bonaire, diving, sailing, and swimming on the west coast of the island, or simply enjoying a great meal at one of the many restaurants in our capital, Kralendijk.

Exciting news for our surfing guests:

We have a great partnership with The Frans Paradise surf school. Guests of Red Palm Village receive a 10% discount on lessons and equipment rentals. Check out Additionally, Chef Corjan Hoogerheide collaborates with Tonky and Taty to create a regularly changing “after-surf” dish, specifically designed for our sports enthusiasts.



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

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.

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.

Still too young to retire, so now fully focused on Red Palm Village Bonaire!
