On November 1, Secret Bay, which is widely considered the best hotel on the island, will reopen with six villas: Zabuco I, II and III; Ylang Ylang I and II and a new, larger Ti-Fy Villa. All Secret Bay villas will now offer private plunge pools.
A centrally located, sit-down restaurant will offer locally sourced favorites and bites. A yoga, spa and wellness pavilion will serve as a riverside destination for intimate wellness classes and luxurious spa treatments.
The Residences at Secret Bay will also soon press forward, building a rare Dominica real estate offering within the embrace of Secret Bay.
"This path forward is, undoubtedly, the most trying option, both financially and physically," said Nassief. "After all, less than one year pales in comparison to the 6 plus [years] it took to first shape our breathtaking, family-owned resort."
According to the latest update from the Discover Dominica Authority, the following hotels have reopened to visitors: Atlantique View Resort, Caribbean Seaview Apartments, Classique International Guest House, Coffeeriver Cottages, Hibiscus Valley Inn, Picard Family Guest House, Pointe Baptiste Guest House, Portsmouth Beach Hotel, Rejens Hotel, Rosalie Forest Eco Lodge, St. James Guest House, Suite Pepper Cottage, Sunset Bay Club, and Tamarind Tree Hotel.
In terms of air travel, Air Antilles, Air Sunshine, LIAT, Seaborne Airlines, WINAIR, and Trans Island Air have all announced resumption of services to Douglas Charles Airport. Costal Air Transport and Express Carrier have also resumed regular services to Canefield Airport.
