Welcome to Bonaire's most iconic ocean-front "Blue" villa -- where architectural art and luxury meet sustainability. Gerard Prins (1929-2017), the esteemed Dutch architect who designed Villa Salentein, aimed to create a home that fits in with the beautiful blues of the Bonairean landscape. From its distinctive circular blue roof, to its open-air patio that makes you feel like you are in heaven while watching Bonaire’s glorious sunsets, to its ocean front-yard filled with gorgeous creatures and corals, to its six bedrooms all with ocean views -- Villa Salentein is well-known on the island as one of the original beautiful homes in the Sabadeco neighborhood on the northern side of our nature-filled island.
Our aim is to also have Salentein fit in beyond the surface level of how it looks to get to a more important goal — working with, not against, Bonaire’s stunning and unique nature. The island government has committed to becoming a blue destination — indicating its commitment to nature, sustainability and conscientious development. To see how we are embracing this ethos at Villa Salentein and striving to make our island home the Bluest villa on Bonaire, please read on for information and tips about your stay.
