Delfins Beach Resort happy to host NORCECA Tour in Bonaire


KRALENDIJK, Bonaire, September 27, 2019 - Once the NORCECA Beach Volleyball Tour Circuit has plans of returning to the scenic limestone island of Bonaire, then they will be able to depend on Delfins Beach Resort as being at the forefront of hosting athletes and officials.


This was stated by Holland-born David Rietveld, the General Manager of Delfins Beach Resort as he looked on a few matches of the inaugural tournament of the NORCECA Beach Volleyball Tour hosted by the Bonaire Volleyball Federation.


Rietveld, who has been with the establishment since it was constructed on the island almost six years ago noted that when the Bonaire Volleyball Federation first came to him with the idea of hosting the athletes, officials and having the tournament at the resort it felt like a no-brainer.


He said,” I told them that having the event would be very important for the island and we have to make it happen as it would be a win-win situation for all involved.


“It will give international exposure to the island while promoting the resort as well and at the same time showing the world that we can be a destination for sports tourism and we are not only able to host diving, wind surfing and kite surfing events, but beach volleyball can be added to that list as well.”


“I was here at the start of the hotel five years ago when we introduced beach tennis, so now is the time for beach volleyball to make its mark on the island I truly believe”.


Rietveld noted that growing up in the sport loving country of Holland he was always involved in sports, especially outdoor sports and looking ahead he will gladly love to host the event at Delfins Beach Resort as it helps to promote the sport in its best form and a great ready-made venue while giving international exposure to the resort as well”.


He boasted “As you can see the sand is of a very high quality as we imported it from French Guiana and once we continue to work hand in hand with the volleyball officials here on the island we will aim to maintain a high standard playing facility.


Feike ¨Postma, who has the responsibility of Food and Beverage at the Delfins Beach Resort added, “Around this time of the year is normally our low period in terms of visitors arrival, so having the players and officials come to our resort works in our favour as well as the guest also have the chance to see international volleyball right at their door step”.
