Since reopening November 1, 2018, Secret Bay, an exclusive and intimate eco-luxury boutique resort and the island’s only 5-star hotel, received two coveted awards: The resort was named one of Conde Nast Traveler’s 2018 Reader’s Choice Awards: “Best Resorts in the Caribbean.” This accolade is determined by the public and this year’s list generated 429,000 responses that helped land Secret Bay fourth out of 50 Caribbean resorts. Additionally, Secret Bay was named one of 10 Caribbean properties that made Fodor’s prestigious list of “100 Most Incredible Hotels in the World.” Over the years, Secret Bay has received numerous accolades.

Secret Bay features a limited collection of six freestanding, secluded and sustainably-crafted villas with their own individual plunge pools that are immersed in nature and positioned on a breathtaking clifftop overlooking the azure Caribbean Sea. Offering a wealth of transformational experiences, fine dining, wellness facilities, architectural residential-style villas and night and day access to remote beaches, Secret Bay provides guests with the ultimate five-star hideaway experience. Secret Bay is located at Ti Baie in the north of Dominica and can be reached at info@secretbay.dm and online at https://secretbay.dm.

These two accomplishments come soon after our very own Tamarind Tree Hotel was nominated for and awarded with the British Guild of Travel Writers BGTW Annual Tourism Award for Best Tourism Project in the Wider World Category for their project “Clearance and Restoration of Segment 11 of the Waitukubuli National Trail (WNT) in Dominica.”  The Tamarind Tree Hotel is a 21 room property which overlooks
the Caribbean Sea atop a 100 ft cliff. The property is ideally located between two beaches and with easy access to hiking trails.  For more information about the hotel’s trail restoration project contact the Tamarind Tree Hotel at hotel@tamarindtreedominica.com  or at https://www.tamarindtreedominica.com/.
