A stay at one of these beauties will have you stepping straight from your patio into the pool
Pool lovers will find this to be the ultimate set- up; a resort where you walk out of your lux room onto your private patio and into the pool. There’s no walking through lobbies, waiting for elevators, or climbing stairs to get in or out of the water. These three resorts offer just that; a few steps right off your patio and you are in the pool.
This boutique adults-only hotel sits on the hillside overlooking Bonaire Bay. Views of the beach and bay are paramount here as the restaurant and infinity pool are poised just right for guests to take in the non-stop view. There’s a striking stretch of sandy beach that feels like it’s just for the guests at this small enclave of 26 keys. A meander through the gardens will take you to the beach or a secret corner all your own among the tropical flowering plants. Swim-up suites come with a jacuzzi on your patio and of course the ability to take a dip on a whim– it is your option round the clock. Swim out to the main infinity pool where the water is cool and the drinks are handy. The swim-up bar will entice you with tropical cocktails and stunning sea views.
