Rosalie Bay Resort, located on the eastern part of Dominica, has been named one of the world’s best ethical destinations by Green Travel Reviews.

According to the site the hotel, which has called an eco boutique, is committed to minimizing it potential impact, protecting and preserving the island and the world’s resources.

Rosalie Bay Resort is the only Green Globe certified resort in Dominica, and has won accolades for its wind- and solar powered energy, including more than 200 solar panels, locally- and organically sourced food, and protected black sand beach, where endangered sea turtles nest.

“I believe that we, as a tourism entity, have a responsibility to the traveling public and the beautiful destination we represent to use natural resources in a way that protects the local environment, and improves the well-being of its residents,” owner Beverly Deikel, was quoted as saying.

Built by hand over the course of nine years Rosalie Bay Resort is a dream and labor of love for owners Beverly Deikel and Patris Oscar. They created an eco-resort to share the beauty of the island with visitors, empower the community, and protect the environment.

Today, the resort continues to be a major source of employment for the local villages, and continues to support local businesses.

For ethical properties within a country, Green Travel Reviews evaluates environmentally and socially conscious properties.

Recently Dominica was added to the world’s “Top 10 Ethical Destinations” based on promoting human rights, preserving it environment and supporting social welfare – all while creating a lively, community-based tourism industry.

    COMGRATULATIONS! This type of local initiative is what we need in Dominica. We can be very proud. This is true private sector leadership. We can do it. Hope others follow. This is action not talk.

      Great news . This is what I call exploiting the opportunities that government policies display.
      Thanks DNO , sometimes I think that nothing good is happening in Dominica, then good news like this is happening , especially in conservation and environment sustainable development. And with solar energy, man this is great.
      A city called the Woodlands in Texas was develop in this mode .And a four star hotel resort in Thailand with 49 guest villas. But they do not have solar, we are on top.

    Congratulations are in order, imagine if the villages of Grand fond, River Cyrique, was settled at Rosalie?? what a great village that would be. We will rejoice at the good news but never forget our history and the way the locals of that area were chased to the hills and their Land stolen under their noses. A country that does not learn from its mistakes is doomed to repeat them. Once again congratulations to the owners and employees of the Rosalie resort, hope that translate in #$$$$$$$. for all.
