Feature Story Xp Bonaire IslandLIfe
Grand Windsock Bonaire was finally able to celebrate their grand opening with the owners, island officials, Tourism Corporation Bonaire, suppliers and guests on May 20, 2022.
At the end of March, 2021, right in the middle of the covid pandemic, the construction work at Grand Windsock was completed. All of the 72 luxurious villas and apartments have been ready to welcome guests in the most comfortable way since July, 2021. Grand Windsock is located just steps away from the Caribbean Sea, with a pool bar, a private beach club, a diving school, rental cars, 24-hour concierge service and villas with their own private swimming pool.
Charles Vos, General Manager at Grand Windsock, was happy to finally celebrate the opening with everyone in person.
Charles has worked in the hospitality industry for many years. The Canadian born Dutchman worked in the Netherlands as a hotel manager in several hotels before he decided he needed a change of scenery. While he pictured it to be Belgium, or maybe France, destiny decided it to be Bonaire.
Charles has been a resident of Bonaire for more than 10 years and has continued to work mostly in the hospitality industry, from Sand Dollar to Divi Flamingo and now at Grand Windsock.
Opening a big resort during the pandemic was a challenge, but the reactions have been very positive and, since opening last year in July, the resort has been almost fully booked. Charles is very thankful for the great local feedback, as many Bonaireans and their families are frequent guests at the resort.
