Dominica’s first #1

by Aug 9, 2022Pulse

For the first time ever, Dominica has been named the top island in the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards. It was named the top island in the Caribbean, Bermuda, and the Bahamas.

“We are incredibly honoured and elated to not only be a Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2022 winner for the first time, but to be the top island in the Caribbean, Bermuda, and the Bahamas. This recognition is a powerful testament to the experiences provided on the island,” said Dominica’s Minister of Tourism, International Transport and Maritime Initiatives, Denise Charles.

“To be recognised by such a prestigious publication as the number one island to visit solidifies our stance in maintaining the island’s natural environment while still creating authentic experiences for travellers,” she added.

Travel + Leisure recognises the top hotels, islands, cities, cruise lines, airlines, spas, and more around the globe, based on the results of the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2022 readers’ surveys. Readers rated islands on the following characteristics: natural attractions/beaches, activities/sites, restaurants/food, people/friendliness, value.

In addition, Secret Bay — Dominica’s exclusive six-star villa resort — captured the #1 spot for resort hotels in the Caribbean, Bermuda and the Bahamas. The resort is a member of Relais & Châteaux, the most prestigious association of luxury hotels and restaurants in the world. This is the second time in three years the eco-luxury resort has been named #1 resort in the Caribbean region. Secret Bay is known for its remote locale, private accommodations with plunge pools, hyper-personalised service, nature-to-table dining with a no-menu concept, chef-driven epicurean culinary experience, and wellness offerings.

“To have not only our destination, but one of Dominica’s hotels also be number one in this year’s Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards truly showcases that Dominica offers a desirable product for travellers seeking to connect with the luxury of nature,” said Charles. “We look forward to welcoming travellers who are seeking a new and exciting travel destination for their next adventure.”
