This is good news for Bonaire. In my opinion, Divi really does it right. We've been at a number of Divi properties. We, along with good friends of ours, regularly stay in a wonderful Divi timeshare when we go to Aruba, our favorite island in the Caribbean.

Divi plans first all-inclusive build on Bonaire

The Divi Group, which operates 11 resorts on six Caribbean islands including two all-inclusive properties on Aruba, revealed plans to build the first all-inclusive resort on Bonaire.

Construction is slated to begin next spring with completion set for the end of 2008. The hotel firm currently operates the 129-room Divi Flamingo Beach Resort & Casino on Bonaire.

The new beachfront, all-inclusive resort will feature 275 rooms and 60 condominium units; a full service dive center; a fitness facility; a rock-climbing wall; an infinity pool; various restaurants and bars; an on-site spa; a casino; and retail shops.

Managment of the new resort will fall under the Divi All Inclusive Group in Aruba, which includes the Divi Aruba All Inclusive and the Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusive.

"The untapped market potential of Bonaire and the opportunity to expand the Divi brand in a destination that is committed to sustainable tourism and where we already have a presence made good business sense," said Alex Nieuwmeyer, who oversees Divi's operations in Aruba and Bonaire.

Islands on which Divi currently has resorts include St. Croix, St. Maarten, Barbados and Cayman Brac as well as Aruba and Bonaire...

I hope this is being built in place of the Divi Flamingo ... that was a dump.

That's one I've never visited. I've been to their properties at: Aruba, Caymans, St.Croix, and St.Maarten.

We've been do Divi Tiara on Cayman Brac a number of times, and have enjoyed it every time. I haven't been to the Flamingo, but I've heard from other divers that it wasn't very nice -- and typically divers are very lenient in terms of housing/hotel requirements (if you're doing four or five dives a day there usually isn't much time to do anything else but eat, sleep, dive).

I'll watch their progress with interest; we've wanted to go to Bonaire and just haven't made it yet -- this will probably hasten our visit.
