Secret Bay Names Patrice Van Isacker As Its European Travel Representative
Secret Bay, Dominica’s award-winning, all-villa rainforest resort renowned for its six-star experience, announced today it has named Patrice Van Isacker of Van Isacker Exclusive as its European travel representative.
“We are extremely pleased to be adding such an incredible six-star Caribbean resort to our portfolio,” said Van Isacker. “Being the fifth Relais & Chateâux hotel in our collection, Secret Bay is not only a perfect fit to our collection but will allow for great twin-centres between our properties and islands which will only enhance our offering to our travel partners. The exceptional quality of the limited collection of sustainable luxury villas and treehouse architectural style of the offering is one of the best and most unique in the Caribbean, and we are very confident that the UK and European travel industry will value these features in this new travel climate.”’
Tucked away on the unspoilt “Nature Island” — one of the Caribbean’s most sparsely populated, environmentally conscious and culturally rich countries — Secret Bay has been praised for its ability to effortlessly capture the luxury of time and space along with its artful fusion of high design, local craftsmanship, commitment to sustainable development through numerous green and eco-friendly initiatives and a reputation for authentic guest experiences custom-curated to personal preference. Part of Secret Bay’s elevated experience is delivered in the form of its culinary offerings: at the innovative Zing Zing restaurant, Executive Chef Grant Lynott operates a “no-menu” concept that’s part food-lab and part restaurant, challenging the traditional fine dining restaurant rules, and focuses on a hyper-local and intimate experience that simply can’t be replicated. Similarly, the Gommier Spa, a three-walled, open-air retreat designed especially for couples, focuses on local and sustainably sourced products for treatments. Other amenities include dedicated villa hosts, on-call concierge, chefs and guides, and two secluded and swimmable beaches.
In late 2019, Secret Bay joined Relais & Châteaux, the most prestigious association of luxury hotels and restaurants in the world, becoming the first and only property in Dominica and just one of seven properties in the Caribbean to be affiliated with the elite brand.
Flights from the UK are available via island hubs such as Antigua, Barbados, St. Maarten, Guadeloupe and St. Lucia.
