Secret Bay Featured on the Cover of Travel + Leisure – April 2019
It is an honor to share Secret Bay’s recent cover and feature in Travel + Leisure’s April 2019 issue, in which Gina Decaprio Vercesi brilliantly captures the traveller’s experience through her illustrative descriptions of Secret Bay and Dominica. The article invites readers to walk the lush sanctuary of the Nature Island, providing a window to the island’s natural wonders and the “plush refuge” of our eco-hotel.
“Secret Bay’s owner, Gregor Nassief, has a passion for immersing his guests in the culture and natural beauty of the island. I drank a sorrel-and-ginger infusion and dined on invasive (and delicious) lionfish speared by Don Mitchell, the resort’s boat captain. I paddled the Indian River with Fire (born Patrickson Lockhart), a dreadlocked boatman who pointed out native flora. And I searched the trees for parrots on the Syndicate Nature Trail with local ornithologist Bertrand Jno Baptiste, otherwise known as Dr. Birdy.”
