Kontiki- Better Than Ever

August 21, 2011

I had the privilege of dining twice at Kontiki this month. My boyfriend and I enjoyed a lovely lunch under the shaded patio area with splendid views of the windsurf scene. Lunch was amazing. We enjoyed fresh fish sandwiches and cold beverages. Today I had a delicious breakfast with Miriam, the manager. We dined on Dutch pancakes, freshly squeezed juice and fresh fruit as we enjoyed the tranquil Sunday morning. Kontiki Restaurant is one of my favorite restaurants away from town and in such a serene environment. The trades cool the dining area and nature abounds. Bram is the chef and comes with extensive experience from years spent in Italy and overseas. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, you are certain to have a treat dining at Kontiki.

The property is windsurf paradise. From the dining room or most rooms, one can enjoy views of the windsurf scene. A short 3 minute car ride brings the sailor to Lac Bay. World class freestyle and slalom events have been held in these pristine waters. The white powder sand and onshore trades make this the perfect beach. Kontiki hosts hundreds of windsurfers each year due to it’s perfect location. My repeat clientele affirms my belief that Kontiki is perfect for the windsurf enthusiast.

The property features comfortable studios, one and two bedroom suites and two spacious villas. I have personally stayed at Kontiki and have toured the updated refurbished rooms. Miriam and Martin and their staff have created a true oasis with a price tag that fits every budget. Right now we are offering stay 7 pay for 6 nights good until Dec. 15th, 2011. This special applies to new bookings. Conditions apply so email for details. Mention Bonaire Bliss and earn an additional treat, a bar credit at Kontiki.
