The experience of a life time.. I could write a novel about our time here in this beautiful, breath-taking, serene tropical island. My wife and I could never have picked such a perfect get-away. The island has so much to offer for all walks of life. We first arrived and was greeted by Zahir (The Man!!!) staff of Rosalie Bay, who was not only warm and friendly, but very knowledgeble and informative. Zahir spoke very passionately about his island which only made us more intrigued about what the island had to offer. Each day surprised us with new adventures from beautiful hikes through crystal clear rivers leading us to breath-taking waterfalls, jungles, mountainous terrain, black sand beaches, hot springs, gorgeous views from mountain peaks, and hikes to volcano and it's boiling lake!
Will bring our kids next time, so they themselves could experience the precious moments Dominica has given to us..RELAXATION, ROMANCE, RIVERS, RAINBOWS, and last but not least our Happy Hour Moment of drinking the best RUM!!!!!
Rosalie Bay's own chefs (when requested) will give you an experience of their culture's riverside cooking called :"One Pot". Rosalie Bay's beautiful black sand beaches is also a home to Leatherback seaturtles nesting site. Rosalie will call you to share an experience and watch the wonderful Leatherbacks that come ashore to lay their eggs.
We very much enjoyed our stay here. We found the pool clean and pleasant. The rooms, although simple, are spotless and cheerful. You'll find lots of hot water, organic herb soap, and a wonderful view of the Caribbean from each room. Although there is no air conditioning, we found the ceiling fan to be sufficient (even in summer). The restaurant's food is superb, featuring such delights as barracuda, pineapple chicken, coconut ice cream, local calaloo soup, etc. The owners were always available and helpful. Do not expect a luxury resort in a big tourist area. Be aware that the beach is a short walk away, there is no television, and the hotel is in a rather rural setting. That's what we wanted in a trip to Dominica, and I would certainly stay here again.
I was in Dominica for one week and stayed at Serenity Lodges for the whole of my stay. There are three lodges and a dining area attached to the owners accommodation. Whilst the lodges offer relatively simple facilities they are set in a wonderful location. They are kept spotlessly clean by the owners Carina, Lester and their new assistant Mary. I had breakfast and dinner at the lodges on most days and I advised Carina prior to booking that I required a vegetarian option for all meals. I can honestly say that Carina went to great lengths to provide excellent variety for the meals and all from local produce. Carina's cooking was delicious!
I also had some great conversations with Lester who provided lot's of information to me about Dominica that enabled me to fill holes in my knowledge about the island.
If one is looking for spotlessly clean accommodation at a reasonable price in Dominica then Serenity Lodges are well worth considering.
