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.
