Harbour Village Beach Club, a luxury resort on the Caribbean island of Bonaire, recently announced the appointment of Sebastiaan Vink as "chef de cuisine," which is basically the same as executive chef.
In this role, Vink manages all culinary operations for Harbour Village Beach Club and its signature oceanfront restaurant, La Balandra Restaurant and Bar, located over the Caribbean Sea.
Hailing from Holland, Vink comes to Harbour Village Beach Club with more than 22 years of industry experience and international influences. In addition to significant time spent at three Michelin One Star restaurants in France, Holland and Spain, Vink’s resume also boasts an impressive background as chef de cuisine in prominent European hotels and restaurants, such as Hotel Splendid in Le Grau du Roi, France, Atticoin Javea, Spain and Villa Da Vinci in Toulouse, France.
Located on a four-acre, private peninsula within an exclusive beachfront enclave on Bonaire, the hotel offers 40 Dutch-Caribbean style suites that are located amid gardens, just steps from a private, white-sand beach.
