As the autumn leaves fell and the Caribbean breeze carried the promise of celebration, November unfolded as a month to remember at Rosalie Bay Eco Resort & Spa. Nestled on the picturesque island of Dominica, our locally run accommodation always seeks to embrace and promote the rich tapestry of the island’s culture. This November was no exception, marked by a vibrant celebration of independence, local heritage, and the diverse cuisine that defines Dominica.
At the heart of our November festivities was the much-anticipated WATO event. WATO, a collaborative effort with Medo’s Kitchen, is the brainchild of our Executive Chef, Nyanda Peltier Charles. Designed to showcase the creative prowess of Dominica’s cuisine, this event transcended expectations this year. Welcoming renowned chefs from across the Caribbean, including Guadeloupe, St. Martin, St. Lucia, Antigua, Marie Galante, and Grenada, WATO became a melting pot of flavors and cultures.
The culinary maestros who graced WATO 2023 included Chef Fiona Compton of St. Lucia, Chef Joachim of Grenada, Chef Keisha of Antigua, Chef Miguel of Guadeloupe, Chef Paul of Marie Galante, and our very own Chef Jessica. Against the backdrop of mesmerizing sounds of Lapo Kabwit music, traditional Kalinago dancing, and other local artistic expressions, guests were treated to a culinary journey through the Caribbean. Get ready for WATO 2024, as we promise an event bigger and better than ever!
In the spirit of giving back to our cherished guests, November also saw the launch of our special room promotion. Guests enjoyed a generous 25% off for stays of 1-3 nights and an enticing 30% off for stays of 4 nights and above. For those seeking year-round savings, we introduced a non-refundable rate of 30%, allowing guests to experience the beauty of Rosalie Bay at an unbeatable value.
As we approached the end of November, we gathered for our annual Thanksgiving dinner with a twist—a Creole Thanksgiving. Guests indulged in a feast that married traditional flavors with a Caribbean flair, celebrating the spirit of togetherness that defines this holiday.
Closing another chapter, November marked the end of the turtle season at our resort. On Thanksgiving Day, we bid farewell to the last green turtle hatchlings as 96 of them embarked on their journey to the ocean. What a heartwarming conclusion to a season dedicated to the conservation of these magnificent creatures.
With the holiday season approaching, we are excitedly bracing ourselves for the festivities ahead. Stay tuned for our holiday specials as we continue to create memorable experiences at Rosalie Bay Eco Resort & Spa. Here’s to a November to remember and the promise of more unforgettable moments in the months to come!
