Secret Bay named top resort

LocalNews Secret Bay named top resort by: – January 7, 2013 Share Dominica’s newest luxury hotel has made it on the top one hundred list of best resorts in the world.Secret Bay, which is located in Portsmouth ranked number two on Harper’s Bazaar’s Travel Hot 100 list of hot and trendy destinations.“The spark of the unfamiliar is what inspires – it’s what makes us see the world afresh” says Catherine Fairweather, associate editor/travel director with Harper’s Bazaar. “It’s good to feel like you’re in on a secret..,” she continued.Introducing Secret Bay as a resort with just “two private bungalows and villas,” the article goes on to mention Secret Bay’s “discrete service 24/7” and its unique concept. “It has no reception, restaurant or bar but is a hideaway stocked with Kindles, sound systems and personal chefs.” Referring to Secret Bay’s “spectacular views of neighboring Guadeloupe” and “the beautiful white-sand Secret Beach… only accessible by kayak,” the feature also captures the essence of Dominica: “The pristine Caribbean island of Dominica, a haven for hikers, whale watchers and birders, has verdant beauty, dramatic black volcanic sand, thermal pools and countless waterfalls and rivers.”Fairweather, in her introduction of the Travel Hot 100 list, said “adventure is certainly a buzzword for 2013” and “regardless of how isolated the retreat; levels of service are being raised to ever more surprising heights.” Echoing this sentiment, The Knot recently selected Secret Bay and Dominica as one of the top 10 destinations in the world for “Adventure Honeymoons”.Secret Bay is becoming known as one of the best boutique resorts in the Caribbean and the world for honeymoons, anniversaries, small family escapes and adventure vacations. Situated on a cliff-top promontory overlooking the Caribbean Sea, Secret Bay is unique in its diversity: two secluded swimming beaches, a spectacular sea-cave; the magical Cario River and two distinct micro-climates. The secluded villas and bungalows were conceptualized by award-winning Latin American architect Fruto Vivas, to maximize the natural beauty of Secret Bay and to minimize the impact on this pristine environment.It has been selected by Travel + Leisure as one of the best new hotels in the world and by The Knot as one of the best honeymoon destinations in the world.Dominica Vibes News 19 Views   2 comments Share Share Sharing is caring!
