Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


Too many resorts throughout the Caribbean (and world by extension) pay little attention in order to minimize its impact on the environment.

Well, if having a Newspaper recycling program or placing recycle bins in guest rooms and hotel lobby qualifies them as a green hotel.

Well, I guess every little bit counts.

But for Eco-resorts like Rosalie Bay Resort in Dominica, these half-measure methods seem merely a punchline to attract more visitors.

So how is serious is Rosalie Bay Resort is about Saving the Environment?

  • 70% of the Energy use at the resort is generated from solar panels and a 225 kW wind turbine, which is the first wind turbine on Dominica and the largest in the Leeward Islands of the Caribbean.
  • the Owners pioneered the first sea turtle protection effort at Rosalie Bay, Dominica
  • Guests can enjoy the fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables grown in the organic garden.
  • From LED lights to chairs made from recycled materials to sustainably-produced cotton towels and UV-filtered natural spring water…it’s apparent that Rosalie Bay puts the environment first.

Beau Rive (www.beaurive.com 767-445-8992) is a truly outstanding “old world charm” hotel in Castle Bruce run by its proprietor Mark Steele.

The hotel normally serves only breakfasts and suppers and only to its guests and its fare is table d’hôte. But because we’re friends and because it was our 37th wedding anniversary and our daughter was visiting from the US and her and best friend and former college roommate paid an additional surprise visit, and because he wasn’t full up with guests and thus had a table free, Mark consented to provide us a meal even though we were not hotel guests.

The meal was outstanding. We had tomato tart appetizers, coconut chicken with breadfruit garnish entree (our daughter Mathilda, a vegetarian, had a special veggie plate) and fruit crumble with ice cream dessert and coffee & tea. The ambience was wonderful, with soft jazz playing and jasmine scent occasionally wafting through.

If you’re visiting Dominica, or live here and want a classy getaway, you can do no better than to lodge at Beau Rive.
