Andi’s Pick: Rosalie Bay Resort

Rosalie Bay Resort: Dominica

First Impression

An exotic getaway deserves lavish accommodations and Rosalie Bay Resort is the perfect choice.  Situated amongst the lush and verdant foothills of the Morne Trois Pitons, here is where unbridled romance meets the untamed wilderness of Dominica.  Over a decade ago, an American woman fell in love with both a man from the island, as well as the country itself, and together they envisioned and then built by hand Rosalie Bay Resort.  This grand property was the first luxury hotel of its kind on Dominica and the couple’s mission is for guests to also fall in love with their surroundings, to employ local residents, and to educate everyone they come in contact with about the importance of protecting the environment.

A West Indies hidden gem, Rosalie Bay Resort is an oceanfront haven.  This stunning hotel is situated on twenty-two acres of land directly between the Rosalie River and a picturesque black sand beach creating an atmosphere that is both intimate and quietly luxurious.

The Room

The secluded property features spacious rooms and suites with every amenity an eco-conscious traveler could ask for.  There are a wide variety of rooms to choose from, though it is worth splurging for an oceanfront suite, where you can fall asleep at night to the peaceful sounds of the Atlantic Ocean.

The Bathroom

The ensuite bathroom is amongst the largest I have seen in all of my travels.  It is simplistic, yet contains everything my heart could have desired, especially with its inviting, oversized clawfoot tub.

The Extras

Rosalie Bay Resort features everything you expect in a tropical holiday: fine dining in a restaurant that cooks with local ingredients, an onyx-lined pool in the center of the resort that is filled with fresh saltwater, complimentary wifi, breathtaking beach views, and a superb spa that only uses organic products.  There are also free morning and evening yoga classes, which are offered on a private beach.  A true vacation from the world awaits you at this property.  Thankfully, mosquitoes are not a problem in this part of the Caribbean, thus it is encouraged to leave your windows open at night and to relax on your porch swing during the day.

Why It Is Andi’s Pick

Let your desires guide you during your stay; maybe you will want to do nothing more than drink the milk of a fresh coconut from one of the hundred of palm trees or maybe you will want to enjoy a guided hike through the resort’s rainforest trail.  Whether you are visiting for an adventure or simply for a great tan, the pulse of Rosalie Bay Resort’s heart is felt everywhere, and the friendly staff will make certain that you feel like a guest in their home.  A true getaway from the world awaits you at this property.

    Thank you so much for the suggestion and beautiful photos. I will not be traveling very long distances for a while due to family illness. The Caribbean is doable for me living in Florida. Great post and very helpful information for me personally. Have a great weekend!

    Very nice. My grandmother is from Dominca, but I’ve never been. She moved to Antigua when she was a teen. I’d love to go there one day, so I will definitely take a look at Rosalie Bay.
